  1. The book is in the print shop now. 150 (!) prototypes on 180 pages. Will be published in two weeks. Get your copy here: https://www.mysuper8.net/shop/prototype---150-unknown-movie-cameras/
  2. Here is the new issue of the Super 8 Magazine in English/German language: https://www.mysuper8.net/shop/4x-super-8-annual-subscription/ CONTENTS Schickeria - A TV Documentary on Super 8 The wild years in Munich: 1965 to 1985. That was also the heyday of Super 8. Many German celebrities remember, especially Iris Berben and Thomas Gottschalk. Large parts of this four-part series, which will be released on Amazon Prime in mid-August, were made on Super 8, especially the feature storylines of the young actors portraying Berben and Gottschalk. The Berlin-based specialty store for analog filming & photography, click & surr, had the great pleasure of overseeing the shoot with advice, cameras, Super 8 film and scans. Lukas Fritz and his Filmomat Since 2007, back then as a teenager, Lukas Fritz has been tinkering with automatic developing systems for film and photography. Finally his Filmomat is available for Super 8 and 16mm. We talked to the inventor, who is now a doctor of chemistry, about his unique product that fills a gap in the market. The colors of summer Francisco Pereira Coutinho from Portugal has a great idea: Every summer, when his extended family gets together, he shoots a Super 8 film - and it always has to be a music video. Everyone is happy to join in. But what looks casual has to be precisely staged. We talked to him about this modern form of family film. Double Super 8 versus Double 8 One of them, Friedemann Wachsmuth, prefers to film with Double Super 8. The other, Patrick Müller, loves Double 8 above all. We asked both 8 the same questions and were pleased to get very different answers. The man with the black box Yuta Ikeya comes from Japan and now lives in the Netherlands. For 18 months he tinkered with his dream: a 35mm movie camera from the 3D printer. Now it's finished and he can show us the first results he shot on it. In the interview, Yuta explains how the camera came to be. All Eumig models in one exhibition Finally they made it! It took the Eumig Museum in Wiener Neudorf a long time to gather all the film camera models ever made by the Austrian company. Now they are here and form the basis of a fabulous exhibition. Jürgen Lossau visited the opening and shows exhibits from 1932 to 1981. Dagie Brundert makes it smell good! Only Dagie can do that: At a workshop at the Münster Art Academy, she inspires participants not only with movie cameras, but also with the smell of the developer. You can mix so many things into it: Beer, Caffenol, willow bark, grass, cinnamon, chili or cocoa. Two weeks were spent filming, developing, editing and projecting. We show the best pictures of the workshop. Logmar's hasty march through the camera world For less than four weeks, it was on sale as of May 2022: the new Gentoo Super 8 camera from Danish manufacturer Logmar. Then Tommy Madsen, the company's CEO, announced they wouldn't be building it after all. How did it come to that? And why were the previously introduced cameras only on the market for a short time? They're already rehearsing! 100 dancing Japanese girls at click & surr Five years click & surr! The Berlin store for analog filming and photography has an anniversary to celebrate. And invites to a big installation: 100 Japanese twirling dancers will be on display on 50 Super 8 projectors. The event will take place in mid-October. In Super 8 Magazine, you can already see frames from the films that company boss Jürgen Lossau has unearthed on Single 8 films from the 1970s.

  6. 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.

  8. 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/
  9. 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.

  12. In the current issue of the Super 8 Magazine we presented 11 newly shot Super 8 films that will be shown in the livestream of the Filmfest Bremen next Saturday, 17.04.2021, at 20:00 (UTC +2). 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. We invite you to join us live on Saturday via https://www.super8.tv/de/filmfest-bremen-livestream-super-8-event/
