  1. I recently had a couple of my Canon 814 XL-S cameras converted to Super Duper 8. I've been reading about it for some time. When you file down the left side of the gate, this exposes the area of film on the opposite side of the perforations (where the sound strip would have been). When you are looking through the viewfinder, the extra area attained through widening the gate is on the right side of the viewfinder. Why? I know it is a simple answer. But intuitively, it feels confusing. I have yet to shoot Super Duper 8. My experience is based on reading about people's experience with this format. But I have seen multiple instances of posters stating that the extra area is on the right side of the viewfinder, but you file the left side of the gate. Please help my poor little confused brain. Thanks.
  2. Mark, I'd rather not purchase a Kowa as the Canon 814xls has too big of a lens. I was hoping to find something that would work with this specific camera. I have considered modifying to Super Duper 8 and using an anamorphic lens. I think I might give it a try. Thanks for the input all.

    Krasnogorsk-3

    Anyone know of a seller that currently offers a re-centering ring for a Krasnogorsk-3 modified to S16mm. I see frequent references to this item in older posts but I cannot seem to find the item listed anywhere.
  4. I have a Canon 814XLS. I have always wondered if a Century Optics or Optex anamorphic lens Adapter would work on a Super-8 camera. I believe I have seen the question posed before but there never seems to be an answer. I have no interest in buying a Kowa lens. Anyone know the answer?
