old Revere eight camera. where can I get film?

Post by Scott Jones » Thu May 02, 2002 5:18 pm

I have an old regular 8mm camera and I have never used it. Just wondering if anyone knows where to get film for it if possible. :?: I have heard that there are different kinds of regular 8 cameras that require different types of film. Here is a link to some pictures of the camera.

8mm magazine film source

Martin Baumgarten.

This is possible to do yourself, load the 8mm magazines that is, if you have the magazines and instructions. Perhaps Martin will still do it.

I have one of the same cameras and have shot some magazine Cinechrome 25 with it.

Regular8mm magazine load cameras galore

Post by studiocarter » Thu May 02, 2002 10:20 pm

I used to be Regular8mm but now am ready for 16mm. The huge web devoted to the small format is only on CD backup now and not on line. However, I have a domain and web space again, so the picture is in the "Store" under "Regular8mm".

These are all Regular8mm magazine load cameras. Martin Baumgarten http://members.aol.com/Super8mm/Super8mm.html has a service loading the magazines for his customers. I used to have the directions...somewhere... He would tell you in detail how to do it anyway, that's just the way he is.

John Schwind is also deeply devoted to Regular 8mm film.

Martin hosts John. He provides a page or two for his supplier, John supplies the film, Martin winds it up onto magazines.

e-bay has one magazine for auction item number: 1351310563

reload it yourself. I sent all mine to Martin. It is doable; I just have too many irons in the fire.
