Can anybody tell me where I can buy film for the Bolex H8? Also, what about processing?

I called the wizards at Pro8mm and all I can hear was them scratching their heads.

You can buy Regular 8mm from John Schwind.

Yale Labs out of California used to process Regular 8. I'm not sure if they still do, but I was pleased with their work.

Don't worry, Matthew, your Pro8mm 7245 will arrive. I can't wait to get some feedback from you about how it works in your 814XL-S and the results. Looking forward to it!
