FYI, may be of interest to you.

Nice test for you to see how the different formats compare when using the same stock. (Click images for larger versions). FYI Max 8 is a modification made to widen the gate of the camera allowing image to be recorded where sound used to be recorded. In the transfer you are able to 'zoom out' and see more of the image resulting in tighter grain and a 16x9 image area. There are some limitations to this modification though as you're not able to see the extra are in the viewfinder of the camera and certain focal lengths will vignette.

Stock: Kodak 7218 500T
Format: Super 8, Max 8 (super duper 8), Super 16
Cameras: Canon 1014xls S8, Eclair NPR 16mm (lens Zeiss 11.5-115)
Cinematographer: Justin Lovell
Transfer: Justin Lovell @ Frame Discreet

Justin,


In the close up for the Max 8 frame, is the reddish mark in the right hand side the single perf? Also, what camera did you use for the Max 8? I see the canon listed, did that do double duty for both 8mm formats, with cropping for the super 8 frame? Kinda looks like Parry Sound in the background. looks great, thanks for posting the stills.

Hey Chris,

The reddish thing is not a sprocket, its the side of my marker board in the shot :P
Camera used was the 1014xls modded for max 8.

Transfer was done twice, once framed for the super 8 frame, once for the max 8 frame. (same footage).

Nice guess, not Parry Sound, but close. Just north of Gravenhurst on Mckay Lake.


All the Best!
