I just bought a few various rolls of super 8 film. I always thought of super 8 film as 35mm still photography film as in: once you put in the roll, you have to shoot all 24 exposures (50 ft in super 8) before taking out the film. But i bought some film that was good in low light, and some thats not. But i don't have to shoot an entire roll at once do i? For example, if i shot at night but still had film left over the next day... couldn't i take out that cartridge, shoot daylight film, then when night returns throw back in the other film cartridge. I'm sure i would ruin just the few frames that are exposed when i take out the cartridge, but other than that the film should be fine, correct?

i suppose this is a stupid question, but i'm not very smart... so there you have it.


Thanks for anyone who read all of that and somehow understood it-

Hi;

Yup, you got it, this is what makes shooting S-8 so very very handy! Just remember though that your footage counter will be reset to zero....
