Recapture Your Memories


You transferred a number of old 8 mm films for me and my family onto C d ' s. You did an amazing job and cleaned up the old films as well. We were so very pleased with your job of recapturing our memories for us.
Your professional and kind way you looked after us was very much appreciated. I have happily recommended you to our friends. I have discovered a couple of VH s tapes I will be bringing to you soon to have put on disk.

-Carol Birch

I had Nigel transfer my Super 8 movie films to DVD's and am very pleased with the work that was done. I would highly recommend Recapture Your Memories to anyone requiring this sort of work. The cost was more than competitive and work was done in a timely manner.

-Ron LePage

The whole family is very pleased with the hundreds of photos that Recapture was copied for us.
The quality has been excellent, the service timely and communication throughout the process has been great.
Having the old slides and photos on DVDs has meant that everyone can share them without having to deal with extra paper and everyone can have the "favorite" photos.
We have recommended Recapture to many people and will continue to do so.

A few months back (having retired) I had on my bucket list to get my many yrs of slides, tapes, 8mm movies in some sort of order. I had the only tapes available of my Dear Mothers piano playing in 1974 and 1989, 8mm family , slides etc. My son checked for me and found Recapture Your Memories (Nigel Robertson Duncan) I met with Nigel on a couple of occasions with the tapes , slides, 8mm family movies etc and found Nigel to be extremely professional, very accommodating and above all his attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Some of the conversion of tapes, music were about 50 yrs old. Needless to say we are thrilled with Nigel's work. I would not hesitate to recommend Nigel to those who wish to "Recapture" their memories.

-Clare Walker

When we retired we considered what to do with all our "stuff" as we moved in to a smaller place.
As we raised our children, we faithfully documented first their growth and than their children's births and growth. We had 13 carousels of 100 slides.
Even by culling out everything that didn't have a loved one in it, we still had more than 600.
Nigel was recommended to us by a good friend, and we were so happy not only with his work, but his pricing, that we have recommended him to others.
It is amazing to be able to have the grandkids sit and laugh at their father's antics as a baby.

It was indeed a pleasure to work with Nigel on converting our old 8 mm film to digital. Much of material was from a stint living in Zambia when our kids were little and it held a lot of good memories. Like most people, putting up a screen and dragging out a noisy projector just wasn’t on our radar anymore. I have dreams of getting these pieces of history into a presentation for the family but haven’t got that far. I do feel that the images are safe on two different hard drives. He also digitized a large number of cassettes that we had made during that three years describing our Zambia experience for my mom and dad back in Ontario. Hearing the kids Zambian accents from my computer is very easy and quite fun.
Nigel was very fair in his pricing. In fact, I had to pay him extra because I felt he wasn’t charging enough! He was prompt, more than amenable about shipping the finished goods back to us and so very pleasant to chat with.
All in all, I think he rates a 10 out of 10!

Recapture Your Memories has done a great job converting old media types into a digital format for our Archives. Over the last few years, they have completed transfers of over 130 VHS video tapes, as well as many dozen audio tapes and MiniDV video tapes. All work is done quickly and labeled just the way we requested. The quality is great. I have recommended RYM to many friends.

35mm and 127 slides — Excellent, personalized work. I would definitely use Recapture Your Dreams again.

-Robert Furber

Thank you Nigel for an incredible job of transfer of my late parents’ 8mm films of farm operations and family events from 40 to 50 years ago. The digital versions will be under the tree at Christmas for a new generation to enjoy!

-Lynn Thompson

My family used RecaptureYourMemories to digitize slides and to old Super8 movies. Their service was efficient and timely, inexpensive and of excellent quality. We were expertly guided through our options, and are glad of the results.
We recommend them highly to any and all.

I have been a constant patron of Nigel’s services. He is very professional, providing high quality results, and at reasonable rates. He attends to detail, responds to customer needs, and always meets deadlines . He has the skills and technological knowledge that provides the customer an imaginative and attractive product. For me he has offered valuable advise that has assisted me in making difficult decisions of what images to select and how to arrange them in order.
Nigel gets my next order!

-Rodney Maennling

I have had Nigel do a lot of transfers for me, mostly movies, but also slides. I have been very impressed by the quality of his work. I was especially impressed with the quality of the slides. I enjoy dealing with Nigel. He is conscientious, courteous, and a pleasure to deal with. I would gladly recommend him to my friends, or anyone who wants their photographic memories digitized.


Cassettes to CD — Excellent results and cost. Nigel went above to provide exemplary service.

-D. Giesbrecht

Nigel has recently digitized a life time of old Super 8 Movie for us. We were so impressed with Nigel's work ethic and his commitment to quality. We have been paid many times over in tears of gratitude from family members and former work colleagues, many of whom did not know the footage even existed. Thanks again Nigel!!

-Bob Isbister

I can assure you as a professional and service oriented person that not only did Nigel exceed my expectations with the final outcome of product all the extra lengths he went to ensure my satisfaction was quite impressive.
I had certain pics in certain boxes that came from specific relatives; he was trusted and succeeded in keeping those separations. He also removed photo’s from old school photo albums carefully, completed the scans and relayed the page before going to the next page until the book was complete.
All in all he did more than 8 rubbermaids (and loose boxes) of my entire family history. I opted to have him add the inscriptions written on the back of some photo’s at a small additional charge, which was well worth it!
In an organized fashion he puts all files on disc with his company logo on the sleeve. I quite seriously could not have been more impressed with Nigel’s service. Especially when I conveyed to him that some of my family was not comfortable with the photo’s even leaving their house let alone be left with a stranger. It is a far better service than one company who advertises on the internet from Toronto (I could not put our legacy on a plane knowing it could get lost), Nigel deserves your business and your family deserves his care and attention.

-Lance Bourgeois

It's always a pleasure doing business with Nigel. Last year he did such an excellent job transferring film for me, that this year I asked him to transfer some vhs and casettes. I always feel confident that my most treasured memories are not only in professional, competent hands but that they are being handled with the utmost respect. I have no hesitation in referring Nigel to family and friends, which I have done many times, knowing they will receive the same level of expertise and care that I have received.

-Sandy Paget

Nigel not only does great work at a reasonable price but the title of his company ‘Recapture Your Memories’ is true. Having access to old pictures, especially ones of people who aren’t with me any more, has kept them very much alive for me. In my case the pictures even move so the people in them really are alive! Even in the reduced income of retirement I was able to share this gift with my sister because I could afford to have our old home movies made digital. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nigel to anyone who wants their memories recaptured.
