Re: I Need An 8mm Film Cleaning Kit

Thank you everybody. I wonder why they use cotton instead of micro-fiber cloth? I had been cleaning my glasses for years with t-shirts and paper towels but was rebuked by RX optical because it puts minute scratches in your lenses and eventually ruins them. Would it not also do this with film? Intere...

Re: I Need An 8mm Film Cleaning Kit

So far I have found FilmGuard and I will probably use a micro-fiber cloth. Any thoughts on this [combination]?

I Need An 8mm Film Cleaning Kit

I will be hand-cleaning my thousands of feet of 8mm color, and 8mm Super with sound, film. I need recommendations on what, and where to buy a kit to do this please. I am basically asking what you guys use? These are films from the 60's through the early 1990's. Fishing, Track meets, Family Reunions,...

This offer is now closed. My seven "kids" have been lovingly adopted into their new home. :D

Re: I Made My Own "New" Super 8 Camera >>>

So I can buy Super 8 sound film for my Elmo 1000S? If so can someone link me to a source please? I was concerned that that my old film would not be good. I suppose it would be wise to trash the old NOS film stock and get new film if it is available for my camera. As far as I know everything works fi...

Re: I Made My Own "New" Super 8 Camera >>>

Wow, you guys are awesome. I like all your suggestions and expertise, whether professional or just years of experience. I had not thought of "connecting" the V-10 voice recorder to the camera. I apologize if I seem 25 years behind the times but it is because I am. But this is what I want: I want to:...

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

I talked to some of the younger generation today at Church about Super 8mm film. Basically in their 20's. There was an absolutely not all-around consensus. They want nothing to do with 8mm. And it wasn't like "Hey that's pretty cool retro". It was a firm "no".

I Made My Own "New" Super 8 Camera >>>

After reading everybody's thoughts on the new Kodak Super 8 camera I had an epiphany this morning before Church. I grabbed my Elmo 1000S, and my Olympus V-10 stereo voice recorder and rushed off to Church. With no time to spare I told the kid running the computer display to fit my recorder into the ...
