Is there on the market some sort of film dispenser, allowing us to keep large spools of 2000' film stock, and transfer lengths of 100 ft on a smaller spool for shooting? Occasionally I see good deals on larger film cans but my camera only use 100 ft spools so I was wondering if there's a way I could buy these large reels, and conveniently transfer on 100ft spools. sv
Hi, I posted last night on here about buying cheap Double 8MM film. I've discovered I can buy 100FT of Double 8MM film for around £30, give or take a few quid. Here's my dilemma, most 8MM film cameras, including mine, only have a capacity for 25FT of film. Now, could I cut this down? Like cut it into 4 sections and put it onto 4 separate 25ft spools? What lighting would I need to do this in? Complete darkness? Subdued lighting? I'm almost certain I can cut it down, I just don't know about lighting conditions. Thanks, Andrew.
