The super8 films you see below can easily be ordered via this lab. You have three choices before purchase; only the cartridge, including photo chemical processing and including process and digital transfer.

kodak super 8 buy

Kodak produces five different emulsions and they are the largest manufacturer of super8 films in the world. If you choose black/white or colour reversal you will be able to screen the processed film with a movie projector. All other films are colour negative and you must make a transfer to a digital file before you can view any results.

but considering how EVERYBODY around the world owns some kind of a smartphone equipped with an ultra-super high-res 6000 billion pixels camera and some editing programs to go with them FREE to make their selfies eternal, i don't think that would be such a good idea after all ... ;-)

When a friend of mine got married a few years ago, I shot the formals on MF and a trendy hip filmmaker friend shot super 8 and edited it into a short for her. Way better than video and was really fun. So I think theres a niche market for this. The camera seems terribly overpriced even so.

Price is way too high. For all you people that nay say the camera, I've seen some online social platforms using very low fi video content and it had far more engagement then super polished produced video content. I think there is something ethereal about the footage that could be used to break through the digital images we see from iPhones and other high def cameras. I think there is a market from it, and if it was around a grand I'd buy it in a heart beat. They should keep the camera reasonably priced and profit from the film. I still think there is room for film to make some waves this day in age.

How about they just make the film eight bucks a cart instead of $34, and I can use my Kodak super 8 camera from 1976 to get similar results..? or my Nikon R10 to get much better results. The Nikon cost me $300 used, and has a great big Nikon glass lens in front of it-and it can do in camera optical wipes by running the film backwards then forwards again.

That means nothing. One of the latest trends is that somehow poor photo and video quality translates into "art". If I ditch my high quality digital equipment and buy a polaroid and super 8 movie camera it won't magically make my stuff art and more meaningful. It's simply a trendy fascination with old technology among young people who didn't grow up in that era. Among older people it may be because it arouses feelings of nostalgia. This "feeling" you profess is purely illusionary.

I shoot modern day digital every day, more or less, for one reason or another. But when it's family movie night, do we get out the miniDV tapes? Nope.. out comes the shimmering super 8mm. It isn't 1080p but in decades ahead, it will still project.

i think kodak is trying to set a record for producing useless equipment, you can take videos of all the money you are losing with the kodak bitcoin miner, and then you can mail the video to kodak and then wait to for them to upload it to the cloud, then you can watch a poorly recorded video of all the money you are throwing away.

This is the sharpest, least grainy and most colorful super 8 film available. 50D is best suited for shooting in bright sunlight situations. It may also be shot indoors with very bright 5500K color temperature lighting. This film is daylight balanced and rated ASA 50. This cartridge contains 2.5 minutes of film when shot at 24fps. This film is a negative which is NOT suitable for film projection. Digital scanning is required (available from Spectra) to view pictures normally. Compatible with all super 8 film cameras. May be safely loaded or unloaded from camera in full light.

In 2005 Kodak announced the discontinuation of their most popular stock Kodachrome[10] due to the decline of facilities equipped with K-14 process. Kodachrome was "replaced" by a new ISO 64 Ektachrome, which uses the simpler E-6 process. The last roll of Kodachrome was processed on January 18, 2011, (although announced last date of processing was December 30, 2010) in Parsons, Kansas, by the sole remaining lab capable of processing it.[11] In December 2012, Kodak discontinued color reversal stock in all formats, including 35 mm and Super 8. However, in Spring of 2019, Kodak introduced Ektachrome 100D in super 8 and 16 mm formats, citing surges in demand.[12]Today there is still a variety of Super 8 film stocks. Kodak sells one Super 8 color reversal stock, Ektachrome 100D, and three Super 8 color negative stocks cut from their Vision 3 film series, ISO 50, ISO 200 and ISO 500, which can be used in very low light. Kodak reformulated the emulsions for the B&W reversal stocks and made Tri-X (ISO 200). Film cut to Super 8 from other manufactured raw stock such as Fuji, Orwo, Adox, Agfa and Foma are also available. Pro8mm offers 7 color negative stocks made from Kodak and Fuji film. Color Reversal film for Super 8 is still available from several Super 8 specialty companies. Wittner Kinotechnik offers Super 8 made from a batch of Agfa Aviphot 200D, which is perforated and slit for Super 8, 8 mm and 16 mm formats. This film is loaded into Super 8 and Single cartridges by several of the specialty companies. Other stocks, such as the new Fuji reversal film, and existing supplies of Kodak 35 mm 100D are often made available in Super 8 by these specialty companies.

The advantages of this system are the possibility of higher frame rates and rewinding film for double exposures or crossfades, which were very difficult or impossible with the super 8 film cartridges but possible with cameras using film spools. Since the film doesn't follow a diagonal path through the stacked spools of the super 8 cassette, the pin-registration of DS8 is considered to be superior to that of Super 8 film, and so picture stability is better.

Double Super 8 for film-makersDS8 can also be used as an alternative film stock in modified 16 mm cameras and projectors, which allows for larger image sizes due to the narrower super 8 sprockets. Some of the formats taking advantage of this are Max DS8 and Ultra DS8.[14]

A little over a decade later, Standard 8 was in need of an upgrade. So in 1956, the super 8 film format was released to the public as a more easy-to-use film. It was even smaller than Standard 8 and packed even better image quality in a quick, reloadable cartridge form.

Aside from the Leica M series, no design in camera history is as recognizable, more iconic than the 1965 super 8 camera by Kodak. We even use an interpretation to identity video articles here on TF (menu > videos). Now over 50 years later, Kodak has taken one hell of a huge step to keep the medium relevant and accessible to the next generation of filmmakers by working with renowned designer Yves Béhar of Fuseproject to reinterpret the super 8 camera. The result is nothing short of perfect, dare we say. Don't believe us? Google it, every goddamn publication on planet earth has posted about it since it's debut at CES just hours ago.

My issue is, I havent been able to find out if its possible to work the modern Kodak super 8 film in the camera or not. Particularly, I was wondering if anyone knew if the type in the attached photograph would function in it? If not, I would be really grateful to anyone who could direct me towards any links to buy films that I could use in the camera.

Thank you for your quick reply, that's all very helpful info. I certainly do hope to buy a much better super 8 camera in the future when I properly commit to filming in general. However, for now, as I said, this one will still please me aesthetically, if nothing else! I do think I will invest a little in trying it out though. I'm new to all things film, but am I right in saying if this camera does break, I'd still be able to carefully rewind and remove any film put in it to be used in another camera? Or is that wishful and ignorant thinking? Thanks again.

Luckily Kodak made Super 8 super user-friendly. The film is completely contained within the cartridge except for a few frames where the lens exposes the film. You can take the cartridge out and swap it BUT you can't rewind it at all. So if you try to shoot a little and the camera isn't working right, just take out the cartridge and keep it for your next camera. But keep in mind you won't know the exact amount of film left. You'll have to mark it down based on the what the camera said when you stopped filming. 041b061a72
