60 years of Single-8! FUJIFILM's film format is celebrating a milestone anniversary in spring 2025. Therefore I would like to present an illustrated book with all the cameras from Fujica, Elmo, Canon, Konica and Yashica. And there will be new information about the history of the film format. BUT IS THERE ENOUGH INTEREST IN THIS PROCECT? I will start a crowdfunding. This book is now available for pre-order and will be delivered in spring 2025. If the required number of 300 orders does not materialize, payments will be refunded at the end of 2024. https://www.mysuper8.net/shop/single-8-story-english/
