  1. Qualtiy of Kahl films was variable and often poor. It is expired material, poorly perforated and sloppy packaging. Often you get 12 rather than 15 metres and riddled with particles or hair(s). Kahl has ceased film production. Odd enough. They limit themselves to scanning now. If you want a material for future use, don't count on this product.
  2. It seems that without much ado filmshooting has reopend after 1,5 year 🙂 https://www.filmshooting.com/forum/index.php Times have changed quite a bit. Here and there lots of yapping and santo wars. Otherwise plenty good documenting threads from a time when people still typed full sentences 🙂 And even paragraphs. Now see if super8man's website will be online again.
  3. Because she/they is/are their own boss? If it must play on 4K TV too they might want to have a reasonble image. Standard S8 may look good for family S8 material but Perry must please more people 🙂
  4. Ever, from a videoclipwebsite, that is. Others have used Super-8 too and had their clips broadcast the old way through television. And had 100-millions of viewers wordl-wide 🙂
  5. The most useful post for Q1 and Q2 🙂
  6. Superior design and ingenuity from Europe. Unfortunately overwhelmed by not so well thoughthrough goods from the East. And undercut by uneconomical hourly rates for production. Already other models were produced in Japan like the Movexooms 6 and 10 🙂
  7. The Canon 512 is a top camera 🙂 Amazing how well they age and how bruised they can be and still work. You need some trickery for the battery though. . The only thing is that weighs a bit. Not your hiking camera.
  8. Just find a pack of money and take the Toeppen scheme. I.e. buy a ton of 16mm unperforated film and have it perforated somewhere in a format you like/need. Or just use what is available. And don't use Wittner or Kahl if you want a more favourable meterprice. Thanks to these Mercedes driving people everything in EU is now crazy overpriced. And they are the reason the toeppenfilm costs such a crazy amount (apart from the three times shipping long distance 🙂 ) If you want a pressure plate on super-8 just get a Fujica single-8 camera. Ready to go in a minute.
  9. Here you have Wittner with Mercedes prices: https://www.wittnercinetec.com/epages/WittnerCinetec-Super8-16mm-Film.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/WittnerCinetec-Super8-16mm-Film/Categories/"Filmklebefolien+/+Klebebänder"/"Super+8"
  10. R10 have a variable notch reader. It can read anything. It is not limited by sensing switches who only set high/low or better a set of 5 possibities.
  11. Several sellers offer bullet cameras to fix to eyepieces of old ciné cameras. There is one for beaulieu zm 4008 cameras and I noticed another for zc1000 To what should the frame rate sync?
  12. Mr Nowill in London can do reperforation of 16mm 2R (two perfs) into R8. No blanks and no 1R. The perforating is not expensive. If you would find old stocks you can send them to London. Shipping is a bit of a put off. Best to have like 2-4 100 feet. If you have a pile you might thingk about going there personally, deliver it and then go to the British Museum. If it were open. Pick up later.
  13. An american guy had a batch Kodak color film perforated by Wittner. Cost a ton. Then shipping out and back. Short rolls are available from his website. Costing considerable. If organised it needs to be efficient. I.e. you order a batch from Kodak in Germany, have it sent to Orwo directly who then deliver to you. Hopefully they can fix it on 7,5 metre spools too 🙂 Processing in EU can then be done by www.super8.nl
