Hi all

Im getting my first super 8 camera and have been told that I should get one that uses film cartridges mainly because its easy to send away and get developed. I can get the Nikon R8 really cheap so my main question is if this camera runs with the film cartridges? I would also apreciate any other advice, thank you for your help.

cheers

Hi Peter, I have an R8, great optics on this camera -- I'm really happy with it -- and it most definitely uses Super 8 film cartridges.

I'm not aware of any Super 8 cameras that don't use cartridges, but I've been wrong before...

There are a couple of double Super-8 cameras which use double-run film on spools (like standard-8) but they're so vanishingly rare that whoever told you about them was causing unnecessary confusion. it's possible to have too much information.
