Which Super 8?
Posted 15 February 2007 - 02:11 PM
1) Is there a significant difference between the two manufactures in terms of optics quality and reliability. For the most part it seems used Nizos are being sold out of Europe and I wonder if the additional shipping cost (which granted isn't huge) is justified by quality. Higher quality would obviously compel me towards a Nizo.
2) Is there a significant difference in strata of product. Are the Nizo 801 or Canon 1014 significantly superior to the Nizo 560 or Canon 814 for instance? They represent an approximately $200 difference in price, which I wonder is justified.
Thanks for the help.

I also want some answers - particularly on the canon front (ive heard the nizo's build quality is not nearly as rugged as the canons - i guess making canon more reliable - although this is not based on personal experience)!
Apart from the zoom range, does the 814 and the 1014 really differ that much, because from the few specs ive seen - it would not appear so.
Also... XLS vs Standard model? Obviously the sound aspect is irrelevent (if you dont want to record seperately). I see a time-lapse option on the XLS's but... surely a watch, abit of patience and a cable release can achieve exactly the same results (and perhaps even more fullfilling results, considering the hands on quality time)!?
I guess, like Chris, what I want to know too is... the price difference - is it really worth it?

high budget: Beaulieu 6008, 7008, 0998
Sound equiped super-8 cameras are irreleavnt nowadays with no sound stocks available. However, the possibility of crystal synch is very important should you want to shoot synh sound.
