Market for super 8 larger than 70mm market?
Posted 19 April 2007 - 03:18 AM
I was thinking recently - even though the super 8 market itself is extremely tiny, I wonder if there are more people shooting super 8 than 65mm. When you consider the thousands of people around the world who shoot super 8 each year and the small number of 70mm productions that were produced over the last two decades, it seems likely that the super 8 market is larger...unless someone can prove me wrong.

Well super 8 is often referred to as a tiny market whose future is uncertain. Indeed, it's existance seems to be hanging by a thread and for decades, people have been predicting whenabouts the format will meet it's demise. Despite all this, what I find quite remarkable is that there are probably more people shooting this supposed 'amateur / home movie' format than people shooting a large guage professional format that was used to create some of the biggest epic movies in cinema's history.
Oh well - that's just me thinking out loud.
