I know pro 8mm has manufactured some of this stuff in super 8 cartridges, and it seems like the results could be really impressive. anyone shoot it?

Hello,

It is a very good stock, in terms of extended exposure latitude and colour reproduction, at least based on my experience on full daylight shots. Fine grain. And allow for chroma keying on controlled situations.

Here a sample shot in january (dancer image) :

I know its a great stock, I've shot some 16 with it. it is wonderful. just curious to see what it could with super8. seems like it could do alot...super fine grain, and latitude....that still looked great though, any footage?...would have guessed it was 16 by the grain...so fine.

A downloadable internet and SD version of "Halogenuros" short-feature will be available in late October, once the short-feature will be released on 35mm here in Chile.
That short-feature was shot on super8 between november 2004 and august 2006, using emultions vision2 200T, vision2 250D (Pro8/05), vision2 50D (Pro8/01) and a bit of vision2 100T (Pro8/12).

I shot a few rolls of 16mm on a trip this summer. Shot some of it on a sunny beach and it handled the contrast really nice. Good saturated colors. There's no question that it would be amazing in S8. In 16mm, 50D was noticeably finer grain than 100D... and 100D is around the same as K40 or finer in super 8. So with that kind of grain, color and latatude :D
