While looking around for old camera gear, i came across a reputable seller in Ukraine selling KS carts, old stock. I cannot remember the reputation of re-loadable carts....

Be cool to buy some 16mm stock, buy one of those old 16mm film splitters and reload your own carts with some alternative stocks, or shoot some nice expired 16mm stock.

And for all newbies who might be reading this, please note that the film to be split must be DS-8, that is 16mm wide film but with super-8 perforations. One can't use just any 16mm wide film in these cartridges, even double 8mm film is incompatible.

ah, thanks for putting that in, I had forgotten that very important bit of info..... it has been awhile... so I suppose unless there is some DS-8 film around, a reloadable cart is not as sought after as I thought..

my bad,

Nowadays in fact there are more options available for DS-8, even Kodak color negative, but I guess that the main attraction with Kaccemas is Fomapan due to its price :)
