8mm film to computer

I have about thirty 50 foot reels of old 8mm film. I’d like to play it on my HDTV and computer. The services I checked with have different options. My question is which format is best to change it into for loading into the computer and editing it? What are the optional formats to input and their pros and cons? Which do you think is the best? What experience have you had with different conversions? Thanks Alan.
