  1. I've been using the ektachrome 100D cartridges in my Nizo 116 camera and occasionally (2 out of 5 films) the frame rate (or film advance) slows down in the middle of the film to as low as around 1 frame per second. Some websites write that the Nizo 116 might need minor adjustments to be able to take Ektachrome 100D, but in my understanding that's just because of the ISO bracket? So I figured something was just wrong with my camera... Does anyone know what the issue could be?

  3. Thank you very much for your concise and elaborate reply Martin, and thanks to other member's advice as well! It is a good idea to start with a testing-method as you outlined above. In reading I don't fully understand everything you write, but that is because I need to just start doing it. I will take some time as I need to get hold of some more supplies, but I am happy I have a good methodology to start working with. I'll share my first results when I get them!
  4. The Eumig Nautica is also an option, seems like it is sold slightly less expensive then the ewa-marine bags..
  5. I see, yes that makes sense, so the further away the matte, the sharper the edge. What do you mean with it being tricky to get at the gate? Can't I just use cover half of the film on the opening of the cassette? Or will this scratch the film? In my mind this would produce a very sharp edge as the film itself is covered... I am actually not sure whether I want a very sharp edge, it feels like the matte option suggested by Mark is a good mid-way solution.
  6. Hello, While doing research on how to expose just one side of the film I came across this article: https://petapixel.com/2017/03/10/shoot-creative-double-exposures-cutting-half-lens-cap/ The writer outlines that by covering half of the lens one can expose half the 35mm frame. Is this the way to go if I want to achieve the same effect with 8mm? Or is it also possible to cover half of the cardridge, or the sprocket window (is that the right term?) in the camera? Does anyone have experience with this? (in relation to my last thread, the plan is to film half underwater and half ab
  7. Yes I can imagine the image quality might not be great, but in this case it is going to be an experimental film where the underwater shots are part of something else... difficult to explain. No idea if it is going to work, but happy to try!
  8. That is great! Thanks a lot, there is even a dealer here in the Netherlands. I'll give them a call tomorrow.
  9. Hello, I am curious if anyone has experience with filming super8 underwater? At the moment I am trying to find a way to film with my Canon 514XL-S in wet environments / fully submerged. I know that for many contemporary cameras plastic casings are available that waterproof the camera and are able to cover the lens without much distortion. Has there ever been something like this available for the Canon 8mm cameras? Or for 8mm cameras in general? Or perhaps someone on this forum has managed to DIY something together...? Best regards, Luuk
