I recently purchased a 1940's Revere 88 8mm camera on ebay. I want to try it out but I haven't been able to find any film. I found super 8 pretty easily but all I can find is vintage (expired) 8mm film. Does anyone know where I can buy 8mm film? Do they even make it? Could I even get a way with using the expired film? I have limited experience with film so I would appreciate some help.

Thanks a lot

It's the "Doppel-8" stuff you have to buy.

The original poster was looking for regular 8 - not super 8.

Known sources in the US are at:
http://zerelda.com/i...tionalfilm.html
who has both B&W and E-6 regular 8
Cinechrome 100D(7285)
CINE-X 100 N8(2x8mm)ASA100 25 ft spool 7265
SUPER CINEX N8(2X8MM)ASA200 25ft SPOOL 7266

and a few other unusual sizes.

and for FOMA B&W
