Is the Canon 814 a good Super8 camera for amateur film-making?

If not, what would you recommend as a good camera to look for?
Also, for night shooting, it's optimal to use 1600ISO film, right?
Thanks a bunch.

Hi, I worked on the production for the feature film "Confessions of a Gangsta" The director Collin Camino was picked as one of the best new filmmakers in New York.This film was shot mainly on Super 8,the last 45
minutes are all Super 8. We also used 35mm and
minidv. The 35 mm parts were only about 15
minutes of the film and the rest was minidv. All
the pictures on the Emptytomb Cinema website is
from the actually movie and is all Super
8mm! The Super 8 was incredible, at times we
shot in almost no light and received beautiful
images from the Canon 814. The footage was
transfered to digibeta then minidv. To the
surprise of all,we were picked up for worldwide
distribution,received an advance,and the film is
now available at all Hollywood video stores, Blockbuster online
video,Netflix,Amazon.com...and many more big
sites. It is an incredible victory for Super 8,
I have included the links below,You are free to

The lens is ok, I used it a lot fully open and it was not to soft... from all the cams I used, color and contrast felt best on this one...
