Hello everyone.

I am new to this website, this is my first post. I am a filmmaker based in Jersey Channel Islands. Please follow the below link for an example of my work.

http://shootingpeopl...p?film_id=80160

My question is has anyone done any long exsposures (single frames) with super 8? I met a DOP in soho that has done this with super 8, he took me aside and showed me this wonderful footage which was shot with K40 at night!
At the moment I am testing with 64T and then going to do a DIY TK to see the results, prehaps I shell post up my tests for fellow members to view when I get it back from the lab.

The main thing that worrys me is the fact that nothing shows on the meter, the camera meter and my light meter. I understand XL means your shutter opens up for more light but still scares me to think I have only 64ASA. Advice anyone? I also found out the camera I have doesn't read 64T, it will exspose it as 40T however I still checked with my hand held meter.

This footage is of fire POI. I am also going to be shooting a lot of strange surreal images for the film as well. Please follow the link below for an example of POI. I am also very interested in finding collaboraters who would be interested in shooting stuff, who have there own kit/good examples of work.

I have 10 feet left on the roll which I shell be using up tomorrow.

I look forward to reading your advice va e-mail or this website.

Thank you

From the looks of that phoito you should be able to get an exposure. Shoot at the slowest frame rate you have to get more - and more clurring of lights, which you probably want from the sounds of it.

Having said that, it sounds like you might want a camera that can do a bit of time exposure, like a Nizo S480 or S560 (there will be other relevant model numbers). With those cams you can lock the shutter open and then on the intervalometer dial set it to as little as 1 frame per minute - each frame gets a minute of light.
I shot these images with a Nizo S560 that way:

I was basically walking around at night, very dark, with the cmaera running all the while at 1-minute exposures, not even thinking too much about what I was shooting, knowing I would get a few amazing frames. The images with a few faces were shot in a disco.

On the first and last images it looks like I set the cmaera down long enough to get a dominant image of some piece of architecture (I was at a seaside resort) and when I picked up the camera it gave the frame a sprinkling of light.
