I'm completely new to film and I just bought my first super8 camera: a Bauer C109 XL. I also bought film stock: Kodak Ektachrome 64T. First I did some research on the camera and found this page:
Super8 Wiki: Bauer C 109 XL
Well, it seems that my camera doesn't work quite well with this film stock. It cannot run it automaticaly.
How do I solve this problem? Turn off the automatic iris?

Hi, have always found that bauers tend to slightly under expose k40, ( bauer 715, 709, 209, 107 ). Tested my bauer 107xl around 3 weeks ago on 64t. Footage came out great. Also found apart from the 715, bauer lenses seem to be on the warm side. For my test 64t footage the cameras 85 filter was used and not an 85b as recommended. Again footage was ok. From another forum, i see that certain processers of 64t are processing the film as a compromised between 64 and 40 asa. I've found that the bauer footage looked better exposed than through my canon 814xls!! So i think you'll be ok using 64t and your bauer, btw, i use Andec to process the film.
