this is my first post, i dont know the nature of the forum but i'll try to be quick.
I'm looking forward to buy a Bolex P1 Zoom Reflex (5x Zoom, 1/12/16/18/24/32/48/64 fps) camera. Its my first time buying an 8mm camera and i need your advice.
My purpose for the camera is to shoot a videoclip with outdoor scenes. What else should i buy?
I'm thinking of a wide lens (any suggestions?)
and a filter.
do u also suggest any projectors (100-300dollars)?
thank you for your time.

Before you invest a single cent extra in the camera I would suggest running a quick film test. Spectra Film in N. Hollywood sells old black and white super 8 reversal triX and PlusX cheap for this purpose or new reg 8 film stocks: www.spectrafilmandvideo.com
When you are done shooting get it processed and look at it and a borrowed viewer or projector.
If your camera passes, put up another post for advice on accessories.
