Can modern 16mm film stock be loaded into kodachrome cartridges for
use in a Keystone Mayfair k-50?

If so...where do I find a cartridge? We just have the camera w/out cartridge.

thanks in advance.

Isn't that a regular 8mm camera? No, you cannot use 16mm perforated film in a regular 8mm camera. Regular 8mm requires twice as many perfs on both edges. And the 8mm cartridges are almost impossible to find now.

It is 16mm/8mm on the box and documentation, although I have not been able to find any 16mm cartridges.
we may just try it with s8mm ecktakrome

I know where you can find a supply of 16mm cartridges. But you can't stick a Super 8 cartridge in it. Regular 8mm magazine cameras will only take regular 8mm catridges. Super 8 is a different animal.

I took a second look. It reads "16mm Magazine".
The film magazine area is about 3" by 4.75".

The packaging mentions using Kodachrome 16mm and 8mm film
(you are correct... no mention of s8mm.)

Are the mags available for this format?

thanks

The only reliable source I have is Java Photo. I understand they bought the remaining stock of 16mm mags from Alan Gordon. They supply the mags preloaded with black and white film. Scroll down to the bottom of this webpage:
