"The service from TransferMagic was very fast and efficient. My Super-8 films were taken good care of and the digitised content was supplied in several different file formats. Bob was very friendly and helpful and communication was good. A first-rate service."
"Many thanks to Bob at Transfermagic for putting my old Super 8 cine films from the 1970's on to memory stick. Good, quick and friendly service enabled me to see my memories again after all these years on my TV and laptop. Many thanks"
"Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in transferring my relatives 50 year old slides to DVD this week. The images look as though they were captured yesterday, with perfect clarity. I had been nervous about handing the slides over to someone I didn’t know, but I needn’t have worried. Bob McDougall, owner of transfermagic was very helpful, and professional, and even with a busy workload managed to fit in our slide transfer with a quick turnaround time. I would highly recommend this company and plan to hunt out all our old films for transfer to DVD by transfermagic"
"We had our family videos transferred onto DVD and hard drive. I found Bob's advice really helpful. He was able to guide us on what would be the best format to transfer to for all the family to access. It is great for our whole family to be able to watch our wedding, old holidays, birthday and Christmas videos on the computer and on tv. It was quick and easy to deal with Transfermagic and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone."
“Just wanted to say thanks for the great job of converting the old cine films to DVD. My Mum and Dad are absolutely delighted with the result and love the music too. It has brought back so many fantastic memories for them and we can now hand them down through the generations never to be forgotten.”
Thanks I’m thrilled with dvd etc.... .wow!
"I thought you might welcome some ( glowing) feedback on the work you undertook on behalf of the Gordon family in transferring my late mother’s cine films to DVD format. All three brothers now have their copies and all, like me, have commented on the excellent job you have done : the “menus” on each DVD and the music were unexpected extras that really help navigate the films. We are thrilled with your service, start to finish and have already recommended you to others. Sincere thanks for the way you have preserved invaluable childhood memories for all of us, for your efficiency and professionalism throughout."
“Recently I rediscovered some early cine film that I had taken, it has lain unwatched in my loft for forty years. I learned that it can be transferred to DVD. The result has been that I’m now able to watch my late wife as a young woman, something that has proved to be very emotional and pleasurable. I’m pleased that I found the cine film, I’m pleased that the work was done to such a high standard by your company. I will end now, I’ve a DVD of a young woman to watch”. Many, many thanks.
"Thanks so much for the DVD's! Brilliant work. Really quick & professional service. The scanned images and discs look brilliant, and all over the space of a weekend! I'll spread the word."
