Anybody know a link where I can find focal length conversions between super-8 lenses and 35mm, 16mm, 2/3?, 1/3? video? I couldn?t find one single director?s viewfinder which would cover super-8.
Thanks in advance.

this covers S8<->16mm only but should still be useful: (from filmshooting.com)

35mm is 2.2x 16mm.
16mm is 1.8x S8 & 2.2x R8

2/3" has a diagonal of 11mm, 16mm has a diagonal of 12.7mm

2/3" is 8.8x6.6mm, while the TV safe area for 16mm is 8.4x6.3mm

1/3" is about the same size as R8

You do the math.
