Hi There,

I'm wanting to shoot our wedding day on Super 8 and transfer it to DVD later.

I have one week ( :o ) to buy a camera and some film!

There are a few on ebay - the one closest to me is a Cinemax one. Does anyone have any information on this camera, good or bad??

I'm a complete novice and just like the look and effect of super 8, so it needs to be fairly basic and easy to use.

Other cameras I could bid on are :

Canon 518SV (not tested with film) is there a high possiblity that it could not work with film???

Canon 518 2 - doesn't say anything about being in working order

Agfa movexoom - seems newer and has alot of features.

Any information would be greatly appreciated :)

TIA

If the Agfa works then go for it. It's twice the camera of the others. The Canons are probably a little easier-- the 518's are nice.

Thanks for your reply, Jim - I'll go for one of the Canon's - the Agfa sold for more than I wanted to pay for a last minute whim!!

If you were nearby I'd rent you one (or both) of my Chinon newsreel cameras.
