  1. This is a bit of a long stretch, but I'm looking for some of the more obscure Super 8 equipment that would have been used along with Super 8 full-coat for sound. This would have been stuff from the Super 8 Sound Company in the 70's so not the easiest to come by. This would have been: - A Super 8 Sound Recorder itself for recording onto full-coat - A Super 8 Sync Block - A viewer that was modified for taking full-coat as well as picture I'm up to my knees in actual full-coat so I don't need any of that, but finding stuff to utilize it for some projects is difficult. I've also talked to Phil at Pro8mm before already as well, but I'm hoping to maybe find someone who has some of this stuff stored away somewhere long forgotten! You can see this sort of stuff in action in this old video as well:
  2. I've been experimenting with old Sync Sound Super 8 systems and am seeing what's possible now with digital transfers. There's the early Bell and Howell Filmosound system where a cassette recorder plugs into compatible cameras and the audio is recorded onto a tape. Then the tape deck is plugged into a filmosound projector and (if you shoot reversal) then you can project back image with the tape deck syncing up as well. My question is can this be transferred digitally using the rapid sync pulse that is recorded onto the other side of the tape as you record audio? Is there a program, or plugin or someway of having this audible sync pulse control the playback speed of the footage? From what I understand originally the tape deck would have controlled the playback speed of the projector, but when I have the film scanned frame by frame for transfer that would lock it into a constant framerate instead of being variable like it would be through the projector. On the higher end side of things, if I have one of the old Super 8 INC Sound Recorders and record audio onto fullcoat while having the recorder plugged into my camera, is syncing digitally any easier than it would be with the Bell and Howell system? (besides the fact that full coat would be way better quality) TLDR: Can I have a sync pulse control the playback speed of a digital transfer? (Oh also I'm searching for one of the fullcoat recorders if anyone has a lead!)
  3. For sale: Handbook for Super 8 Production has a cracked spine with a some loose pages but it seems to be all there. Super 8 Sound catalog is in good condition. $12.00 USD for both plus shipping.
