Hello,
I've been checking out this forum for a while and I'm new to super 8. The Nizo 3048 I bought should be here any day now.I was wondering if it was a good idea to use a filter on the front of the camera for daylight shots instead of the built-in filter. I was planning on shooting about 3-4 rolls just to do tests at first, writing down different settings and showing that at the beginning of short shots.

My advice would be to shoot one roll only as a test. And make it reversal film as this will tell you a lot more than negative about what your camera is doing. As for the internal filter vs external filter, yes, the internal filter may have faded or be dirty etc.. Again, do a comparative test on your test roll.
Here is a link to some other advice I have on shooting a test roll: http://nanolab.com.au/bracketed.htm

Thanks for the link. I'll have to read this a number of times before it all sinks in. Seems like a good approach.
