RPi Telecine Project

This project consists of code and models for an 8mm film scanner project based around a Raspberry Pi model B and camera module. Most of the code is written in Python.

The project is designed to be able to reliably capture each frame of a reel of 8mm film (Super 8 or Standard 8) as a high quality photo. Bracketing is possible to cope with underexposed or dense film.

Once captured, the folder of image files can be transferred to a PC for further processing.

Futher information is available in this Github repository:

Acknowledgements

Thanks to Raspberry Pi for a splendid little computer and excellent camera module!

Rpi Telecine project design was somewhat inspired by the Kinograph project

3d printed Gate was inspired by this design.

Chassis makes use of Makerbeam and accessories

Code makes use of:

This is a work in progress, and hasn't yet been used on any precious films. It's a good idea to test using only 'disposable films'. Ebay is a good source of old 'home movies'.
