Hey all, hoping someone can give me some advice. I've just purchased my first super 8 camera...a Nizo 801 Macro. I shot my first film on it over the last few days whilst in Namibia. I've read everywhere that shooting at 24fps I should get a run time of around 2.5 minutes but as I was shooting I realised it was going down way faster. I was shooting 24fps the whole time. Ive just tested the camera without any film in and my run times going by the dial are: 18fps 1.38 mins 24fps 1.08 mins 50fps 0.34 mins Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a fault with the camera? Will the motor run quicker when there is no film in it? I also realised after getting back that I had 1.2v AA batteries loaded rather than 1.5v AA's that the user manual recommends. Also I had 1.5v light meter batteries rather than 1.3v whilst shooting in Namibia. Though when testing the motor I had changed them to 1.3v batteries. Ive just sent off the film for processing so hoping something comes out. Would really appreciate if anyone can shed some light on this! Thanks Joe
