hi, I just got a Bell & Howell super 8 filmosonic XL 1235 camera and I dont know if the ektachrome 64D is compatible or if its just going to make it 40D. If it is not compatible , what film do you advise me to use? that I can still buy and process in a lab. I dont have lots of money .
the indications in the instruction that the cam works with Asa raitings of 160/100, 40/25. type G asa 160


can you please help.


thank you

Shoot the Tri-X B&W. That's the one current Kodak stock your camera will understand.
