  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Likely the machines have more capacity to produce film than the collective filming people can (afford to) shoot 🙂
  4. Interesting to see you run a lab. www.johnsalimphotographic.co.uk Is this in full operation? I.e. also the odd films like MINOX? Too bad the brexit is going to uproot all cross border exchange.
  5. Certainly nice stills. Could go as intended photographs 🙂 That is a skill! Like Eliot Bristo on his US tour in the 70-ies
  6. Seems to me to blame it on the cartridge 😞
  7. ST-1 is nice when filming from tripod and it gives some extra functions. THe standard battery box alos doubles as a forehead support. When filming handheld it is convenient to have an original batteryholder, with cushion pad 🙂
  8. Maybe just try? Although that is difficult with rare items.
  9. Possibly the feeler near the filmgate has been bent. Otherwise part of the mechanism parts inside are stuck.
  10. That is about it 🙂 Make sure it is smooth and mind the springs and feelers who protrude through the gate metal at several positions.
  11. Good luck. Fomapan R100 makes for very beautiful images. Very nice in projection. The bleach in the original Foma kit is one-shot Kalium-Permanganat. The film gives off a lot of grit during bleaching. Careful when mixing! Strong acid involved. GLoves and glasses required.
  12. the 7008 with sd-8 is in several scenes. It looked like one with 6-180mm from a certain angle but from another it seems more like a telephoto on an adapter.
  13. Here is the 6-180mm zoom in action, in its own time: 50 min of docu on S8
  14. Interesting, spend an hour 🙂 Docu on S8 history With real life contemporair Schneider-Kreuznach 6-180mm f/1.8 Variogon lens for Beaulieu Super 8 camera in action, along with SD-8 magazine. A ton of equipment. Not to mention the film charge.
  15. 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.
