Okay,

I have this Canon 514 XL-S for more than a year now and still didnt shoot nothing with it.
I can't find some films here. I found a store in Europe... should I order my films from there ? I'm from Canada...
And what films do you recommend me ?
I'm just interested in making movies and exploring my camera.
And I saw some nice editor viewer. Is it good to have one ?
I just dont know where to start. :lol:

if you in canada then set aside about 50dollars usa to cover the costs of 2 minutes of final film. if this scares you then you should consider minidv or high8.

Hi, sadly your camera will not expose kodaks new ektachrome 64t ( kodachrome replacement filmstock ) correctly in auto mode. Your results will be overexposed unless your manually expose each seen, which is not easy on the 514xls. Your best option is the new velvia 50 asa filmstock, Spectra are selling an all in one package. All you need to do is load the camera with velvia and slide the switch to artificial lite mode. The fuji film is reported to have much finer grain than 64t.
