I have had a Wollensak Eight Model 23 for a few years, but have only recently decided to use it. I was curious as to if anyone knew what type of film to use for this camera, and where it would be available? I've searched quite a bit and haven't found any answers so far, so any help would be appreciated.

Standard-8 (or double-8 as it's also called)is now a specialist item. You need 25ft. spools- you turn the spool over at the end and run it again, hence 50ft. total.
Wittner in Germany have it- you don't say where you are.

It seems most of the other suppliers in Europe and the UK get it from Wittner.
John Schwind is in the US.

These are all reperforated Kodak or Fuji stocks.
