With digital, damage in the wrong area can make the whole disc unreadable without special software and hardware. Incidentally what would be the best way to archive important stuff these days short of carving it in stone? Cloud storage?

I would suggest 2-3 copies locally on different media of different age (e.g. 2 pcs of hdd based storage with hdds at least from 2 different production lots) and one at some remote location. The cloud is a good idea (see the recent Amazon storage offer mentioned in a different thread, also some other) but, my more personal concern, would be encryption of the data and automation of the process.

I set up a backup-server at my FiL's back in Europe and just do cron based rsync but for more typical Windows/Mac users the cloud based storage is indeed a very attractive solution.

The media conversion shop on
Tangerine Associate 118 Jalan Besar Singpaore 208838 (opp Veerasamy Road) has closed down.

In June I go to UK for very short one week holiday and will return with the cine films.
Old post, I know, but does anyone have a projector in Singapore or can assist me?
Is there a camera club in Singapore who maybe could help?

Try P&G photo at Adelphi, basement.

Steven should point you in the right direction.

Too bad you are not in the USA... plenty of places offer the service.

I think a service would give you better quality output than a projector and camera combo.
