  2. These are exceeding rare laboratory grade Super 8mm film cartridge opening machines! If you've ever tried to open a Super 8mm Cartridge gently when processing your own, you know what an ordeal it can be! If you have a dozen or more to open, it can be torture on you and possibly your film. This machine, which is about 10 lbs of cast aluminum, has a razor sharp blade on a circular bit under the cover. Place the Super 8mm cartridge in the aperture, close the lid, give it one revolution on the handle and you have a perfectly cut circle in the side of the cartridge to gently extract your film! F
  3. Hi all. I have a couple of questions regarding super 8mm shooting. I've been shooting Super 8 for a few years now, haven't used it much, but have gone through a few rolls of film in my spare time. I've been reading about colour temperatures, and have slightly confused myself. I read somewhere that all Kodak film is tungsten balanced, and that by putting a cartridge of 50D into my super 8 camera for example, is engaging the 85A Warming filter. By putting 500T into my camera it disengages the filter, unless I chose to override it for shooting in daylight with tungsten stock. Is it the ot
  4. I've been lurking here for some time, reading and doing some research. I have thousands of hours of Super 8mm home movie footage taken from 1967 to 1990 that I am looking to get transferred. I'm dealing with amateur footage that is naturally shaky from the handheld camera, has occasional focus problems, lots of panning around etc. LOTS of poorly lit indoor shots. The film itself is *ok* but it has some dirt, scratches, etc., that you would expect from 30-40 year old films that have been handled / stored by Average Joes. It also has lots of splices. After doing some research here, I c
  5. I recently had a couple of my Canon 814 XL-S cameras converted to Super Duper 8. I've been reading about it for some time. When you file down the left side of the gate, this exposes the area of film on the opposite side of the perforations (where the sound strip would have been). When you are looking through the viewfinder, the extra area attained through widening the gate is on the right side of the viewfinder. Why? I know it is a simple answer. But intuitively, it feels confusing. I have yet to shoot Super Duper 8. My experience is based on reading about people's experience wit

  7. Hi everyone, could you help me out and tell me if there are any shops/sites online that offer processing services to countries worldwide (in my case, Singapore)? Thanks!
  8. Anyone in the market for an R10? This is the top-of-the-line Nikon Super 8mm R10, fully loaded, fully operational, lovingly cared for and hardly used by the present owner. See it here: https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/pho/5065820851.html See it now: Purchased in Santa Monica and evaluated by SML Camera in Venice, CA, this sturdy cinematographic masterpiece has a Swiss watch-like, mechanical elegance to its sounds and action, and comes loaded with in-camera effects and all the accessories available. Read the specs: Lens: Nikkor 7 - 70 mm (10x zoom) - f
  9. I'd like to share my new idea.All you need is an iPhone with a case you can attach to your rod system to have a workable video tap for a Super 8mm film camera. Enjoy it, MOY https://vimeo.com/65196781
  10. Hello every one. I shot this film in a Nikon r10 . The camera hasn’t been used in 32 years so… as a result of these tests, I will get it checked as far as the lens and the mechanism goes. The thing is, I did expected to see some grain, but this is excessive right? The B&W is a reversal 200 ASA, and the color one is a Negative 250 daylight. I did use the auto exposure meter built in, in the camera. I shot it at 24fps and 59 fps (the b&w). Got it transferred at pro8mm and color corrected scene – to –scene. So, if any one can share his or her ideas, pls do. I want to know what I did wro
  11. Hello, I am preparing to shoot a feature on Super 8mm with sound- (for budget reasons I am unable to use 16mm) and am considering using a Canon 814 xl-s. However, I recently purchased two Nizo 6080s on ebay which arrived with "unexpected mechanical problems" and may be costly to repair. I know the Nizo's are a quiet camera- (even with a cartridge loaded of course) however, I as I consider the Canon, I am wondering if anyone can offer a comparison, "noisewise" of the two? Thank you- M

  13. Hi, I am about to shoot a short movie with the Red Scarlet. Prior to that, we will shoot some 8mm footage. During one scene, a character is going to start a super 8mm projector and then go in front of it (in the projected image) and interact with the character from the super 8mm footage. I am aware of the "scanning line" problem due to the rolling shutter of the Scarlet. My solution was to film the super 8mm footage with a non-rolling shutter camera. (I believe it is the cheap alternative to a scan) And then cheat the projection with a digital projector, pretending it comes from
  14. I received a Canon Super 8mm camera for Christmas I have never shot on film before, so I cannot wait to start filming with Super 8mm. I also got Kodak Ekta 100D, I am aware it is not being produced any-more so I am fairly lucky to get my hands on a reel. Any tips to be given on shooting with super 8mm? I have always been a digital filmmaker I wrote a short overview of the camera and my first thoughts on my blog, which can be seen here.
