  1. If your loop is 50 cm it might work just like that. If it two meters you need to keep the material safe and need to guide through some rollers high up or feed it in a box to zigzag in and pull it out on the otherside. You might also attempt to use a projector loop device like the Norismat, GePe spool and what more. There are also modern more detailed design which manage the film caringly to reduce the wear. BTW you loop it by connecting the start to end using a splicer.
  2. You need to manage the loop material. Through a set of rollers or possibly in a 8mm thick box. Mind the wear on the film.
  3. There is a french super-8 specialist who offers them for beaulieu. The trick is that the lens can get close to the eyepiece as if it were an eye. Pickup the image there which beams out as if coming from infinity. The focus of the bullet camera needs to be at infinity. It seems bullet cam has changed in meaning. It is now more a type of security camera.
  4. Camera in small housing. A bit like a bullet (from an Elefant rifle). Round shape, lens in front, cable from the rear. Easy to clamp in a holder. It is a bit of pre gopro thing. People used them for filming from a head-band , I believe. Output analogue to go to a recorder or screen. Or now digitizer.
  5. There is a specially designed machined brick of coated aluminium which can take a 4008 and mount a pair of rods to the camera. I am not sure if it is on eBay. It cost more than most pay for their 4008 🙂
  6. The Leicina should be too hard to fix. A nice low body and firm thread-position. The budget rod systems often enough have a small block to lift the camera (a dSLR these days) somewhat up to allow the focus to fit underneath. This works well with the Leicina. 🙂 The 6008 needs a wedge to make it point horizontal when on a horizontal surface (like your tripod head with a rod-set). With that it should be possible but the optical axis is fairly then. Also the grip interferes with positioning a focuser 😞
  7. ask super16inc before attempting anything other. Others will charge arms and legs.
  8. Cover the cartridge is difficult. The cart wil be pressed againt the gate. THere are hubs protruding. On the right-side there will be the claw advacing the film.
  9. Covering half the frontlens is not going to produce clean separated half-images. Mind the graphics of lightbeam through lenses from physics class. Beams hitting left or right in the frontlens still make it to both sides. Best were to cover half the filmgate in camera. Mind that when filming the image is left-right swapped on the film.
  10. Even today! Although no factory stock left. With a detailed list.
  11. Now sell your car when you want the work done 🙂 Possibly best to ship to Bernie at super16inc. He is a certified lens repair specialist. Angénieux and Schneider or what more.
  12. If you cannot locate a suitable housing you will have to divert to the classic EWA underwater camera system-bags 🙂 It is remarkable how durable these are while other plastic or rubber items detoriate after so many years. It is DDR quality.
  13. It will be difficult to find any readymade and then be more affordable. Often enough it just gives the same metre price. Possibly there is Ektachrome in S8 from Pro8mm but that will be limited to specialty fillers like single-8. This a extra from their attempt to revive DS-8 The film more economic you may need to turn to Fomapan 100 Reversal in DS-8 in rolls of 30 meter. THese need to be split. Giving two strands of S8 in 30 metres. That can be used for S8 refill cartridges. Getting it processed is then another task 🙂 Best to DIY using a FOMA kit. But then you need a big tank.
  14. In UK you now have Gauge film. Even with machines and such. And considering brexit no worries about duties 🙂 He can use the business as he has anounced to not take any film from the continent due to customs complications in receiving and returning.
  15. Likely the machines have more capacity to produce film than the collective filming people can (afford to) shoot 🙂
