Why doesn't my super 8 film 'roll out'
Posted 22 July 2010 - 01:03 PM
I particually like the look when the film rolls out and you get the distorted 'Kodak' signature at the end but my films don't come back with this either.
I have a Nizo Pro camera if this makes any difference?
Any thoughts on this would be great or, if at all poss, I would love it if someone could email me a Kodak-labelled end of reel sequence as a file that I could incorporate into my editing?

Kodak lab leaders sometimes had 'Kodak' inked on in red, but that, of course, would be at the head of the roll.
Perhaps what you have seen had been added in editing.

What is double 8? Does it require a completely different camera to a super 8?
Yes. "Double 8" film is actually 16mm film that is perforated with twice as many perfs as regular 16mm. The film is exposed on one side, flipped over, and exposed on the other side. The processed film is then slit in half and spliced together to form an 8mm film.
For this film, you need a different camera. The good thing is that double 8 cameras are cheap and most can accommodate any film stock you put in them. If you are looking for a good, sturdy double 8 camera, I would recommend the Cine Canonet 8 or the Minolta Zoom 8. They both have auto exposure and are battery-powered. The only issue is that both use a mercury battery, so you will need to use a Wein cell or the MR50 battery adapter to use the meter properly.
