My Chinon only has two film speeds and suffers with the common case of under exposing the new colour Kodak film.
I'd appreciate any info on new films and also any suggestions regarding a camera more adept at using the new films better from off t'old ebay.

Do you have a manual exposure setting? If you do just use an external meter. That way you won't have all the "breathing" in exposure that comes with autoexposure.
If you are looking for the best quality you out of Super 8 it gets expensive quickly. You'll need to shoot negative stocks and probably invest in a camera with more exposure control and better lenses. If you're going through that, just jump to 16mm; you'll be amazed at the difference.

or even try 35 in Panavision No seriously... I think Super8 has it's own reason for life not need to be compared with other formats. I can't afford 16 myself and try to shoot quality Super8 with good cameras
