Super-8mm and other Obsolete Media survival notes
Writing in 2005 I do NOT now recommend use of Super-8mm or other similar
media for any serious attempt at film production. I was formerly a
great fan of Super-8mm as should be clear from other areas of this site and I
still have the equipment to film with it and even digitise the results.
BUT my recent testing makes it clear to me that DV delivers equal or better
image quality compared to Super-8mm. DV is better for sound and
editing. The new HDV medium is a further improvement.
O-Rings sold by automotive parts shops work well but get a slightly looser-fitting ring than your original belt.
The most useful information now for Super-8mm is how to keep the projectors
