Another rookie question here-

Are there any issues in using a non-sound cartridge in an S8 sound camera?

Thanks.

Hello,

No. Except for the obvious, that there will be no sound recorded.

Some of the simpler S8 sound cameras like the Kodak Ektasound will run at 20 FPS when there is a silent cartridge installed. This is a byproduct of the mechanism wanting to run at 20 maximum but held down to 18 when the feeler arm is sensing and maintaining the free loop between the picture and sound points. No sound recording point, so no free loop, so the picture portion runs at 20.

Sound Cameras generally have a lower top filming speed than their silent camera counterparts. The slow motion feature in a sound camera is either disabled when a sound cartridge is used, or the camera has a lower top filming speed. It's also possible that in-camera picture dissolves may not work when a sound cartridge is used, but I'm not sure about this. However, sound cartridges have not been made for almost a decade now.

A Canon 1014XLS sound camera has a top speed of 36 frames per second, whereas the silent Canon 1014 I think does 54 frames per second. So the bias is moreso whether the camera was a sound camera or not, but I think use of the current day silent cartridges allow the camera to operate with all the bells and whistles the camera comes with, it's only the sound cartridges that actually limit the camera in some way.
