one way is to project the film, still frame the projection, and use a
digital camera to take a picture. I am not sure how good the output
will be. The problem with scanning a 16mm is the size. Higher
megapixels the better.

I had a question from the historical society archivist that I thought
one of you might know the answer to... Preservation isn't my area.

She has films of local events in the '30s and '40s.
She'd like to print some of the frames as photographs. Just regular
size photos, not the supersized ones you often see in museum displays.

She said the film is 16mm, but I didn't see it to confirm. She said they
tried using a scanner, but couldn't get a good enough resolution.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
