Love the concept of single 8mm with its professional gate and transport system. Mine is in the classified section. Anyone ever use one?

John - yep I have one and it's super (or should that be single) fun. Bright light and shallow depths are best - here's a very short film made with Fuji stock...

This camera seems and feels weird when you shoot mostly super 8.
Very lightweight, compact toy-like, and yes fun, with good results (as seen to the link of Mr Giles Perkins). I always end up buying super 8 film so mine is still untested.
Great short by the way!! ;-)

I have one... but it's in a box in Chicago, about 1600 km from me. The camera's real strength is its low light capability - a really fast f/1.1 lens and 230 degree shutter combined with its small size make it great for incognito shooting at night in available light.
