Folks,

since I could not stand the confusion about S8 cartridge notches any more and got trapped by the "old" Notch Ruler myself, I created some new tools to get and provide ultimate clarity on ASA-Notches (and how Cameras read them) once and for all.

Here is the blog post incl. download -- any feedback greatly appreciated!

Oh, since english is not my mother tongue, let me know if anything sounds odd or should better be said in a different way.

Nice job. Very useful. Bookmarked. Thanks, Friedemann!

As you point out, not all Super 8 cartridges are punched correctly... So although your camera may be able to
properly index with a particlar speed of stock, it's also a good idea to check the notching.

Thats right, the new Vision 500T is e.g. notched as 400D (!). Odd.
