  3. Here is a nice article about the upcoming book: https://www.filmkorn.org/cameras-of-dreams-a-book-about-prototypes/?lang=en
  4. The new issue of Super 8 Magazine #5 will be released next week. Here are the topics: The new Kodak Super 8 camera: "Later this year". Is it coming or not? And if so, how much will it cost? News about a camera that everyone already thought was dead. In an extensive cover story, Jürgen Lossau explores what has happened to the camera in recent years and what the prospects are for seeing the hybrid model in action this year. Yves Béhar: The camera design of a film enthusiast His parents were cinephiles, and at 12 he was shooting and editing his own Super 8 films. The form designer Yves Béhar was allowed to shape the Super-8 camera for Kodak and describes his work. Hi-Tech made by Kodak - the changed technical specifications At its core, the Kodak Super 8 camera, as it was presented at the 2016 CES trade show, has remained true to itself. But there are changed details, for example on the housing, the battery and the software. Double 8 makes double fun: Filming with 8mm spring work cameras Florian Cramer introduces interesting 8mm cameras and tells why working with the Double 8 film format is so wonderfully analog. Oldschool craft, more decelerated than Super 8. Tour de Film: Ten years of bicycle races accompanied Andreas Scheffer shot an entertaining, very personal 15-minute documentary on Super 8. About nimble riders, big bellies and a small boy - a documentary with idiosyncratic image effects. In an interview, he talks about the ideas behind the film. Skaters on Super 8: Dan Schulz mixes digital with analog Skaters and their tricks - that's the passion of Berlin-based Dan Schulz. It can take a few hours of digital filming to capture a simple trick. That would be too expensive in Super 8. But it's the atmosphere and the beautiful images that Schulz captures with his Nizo. Prototypes - never built film cameras Whether 8mm, Super 8, Single 8, Double Super 8 or 16mm - in all film formats there are many camera designs that never came to fruition. We present some technically particularly special specimens here - as a foretaste of the upcoming book PROTOTYPE.

  6. My little publishing house is preparing a new book called PROTOTYPE. Inside there are around 100 movie cameras that were never built. Super 8, Single-8, 16mm, 8mm. Ingenious designs that were too expensive to mass produce. Or were conceived too early. Or too late. Models that could take photos and filming movies. Intelligent design, opulent functions. Inventions between 1935 and 1980. A last look at these analog treasures before they are forgotten. Interviews with constructors and designers. This book is free for pre-ordering now. Today, technical books are only available in small print runs. That's why we work with pre-orders for this title, in order to be able to estimate the exact print run. Distribution currently only online and not through bookstores. Here you will find more information: https://www.mysuper8.net/shop/prototype---100-unknown-movie-cameras/
  7. No, as we have to refill the cartridges after processing with new film stock we have to take care that they will all come to our selected lab. We do not produce new cartridges, just use cleaned old ones.

That means for London: Sat, April, 17th, 7 pm., New York: Sat, April, 17th, 2 pm. During the screening the films will be set to music live with prose or poetry. We are very happy that during this frustrating Corona time a Super 8 event is coming up and are already very excited about the Filmfest Bremen broadcast with four cameras from the theater there - unfortunately without an audience inside the theater. A jury will choose the best film after the screening. The first prize will be sponsored by Filmfest Bremen and Kodak.
