There’s a treasure trove of historical past locked away in closets and attics, the place outdated shoeboxes maintain reels of film movie shot by beginner cinematographers. They captured youngsters’s first steps, household holidays, and events the place [Uncle Bill] was getting as much as his standard antics. Little of what was captured on hundreds of miles of Eight-mm and Tremendous Eight movie is consequential, however giving a household the means to see lengthy misplaced family members once more could be a highly effective factor certainly.
That was the purpose of [Anton Gutscher]’s automated Eight-mm movie scanner. Sure, business providers exist that may digitize motion pictures, slides, and snapshots, however the place’s the problem in that? And a problem is what it ended up being. Apart from designing and printing one thing like 27 customized elements, [Anton] additionally had a customized PCB fabricated for the management electronics. Movie dealing with is completed with a stepper motor that strikes one body into the scanner at a time for scanning and cropping. An LCD show permits the archivist to maneuver the cropping window round manually, and particular person photos are strung along with ffmpeg operating on the embedded Raspberry Pi. There’s a short clip of movie from a 1976 journey to Singapore within the video under; we discover the standard of the digitized movie remarkably good.
