Hi all, a silly thread here.

If you were going to be stuck on a desert island with only one Super 8 camera for company what model would it be and why?

I would take an Elmo 110R. I love the egronomics of this camera, and that 160 degree shutter and fine Elmo lens guarantee the finest of pictures.

I hope some film washes up on the beach.

Where would you get your film processed?

I think I'd leave the Super 8 home and take the model along instead - better company :rolleyes:
