I have just bought a Sankyo CME 1100 Hi-Focus on eBay from BlueBeanie54.

So, what do you think ?

Indeed, it comes with a roll of Pro8mm 800T Colour Negative Process Paid, AND an Electronic Remote Control.

I'm happy. :D :D :D :D :D

Hi Matthew,

About the 800T film: It hasn't been available in a long time (since 2003, I believe) and Pro8mm doesn't currently list it for sale. As you probably know, the shelf life of the higher speed films is very short. It may be okay if it was properly stored, but get some fresh film for anything you shoot that's important.

Good luck with your new camera.

Personally, not knowing where the 800T has been and how it was stored, I wouldn't use it. The E100D will be a better choice for testing your new camera in my opinion.
