I know this is not super 8:) but I found an old double 8mm camera and new film to go with it (it is ISO100) so, I was wondering something.

There is an ISO Guide on the side of the Revere Model 88 (example interior scene near window in the summer, bright is fstop 4) I was wondering, what is the ISO of the film in the 40s when this camera was made?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm away from my revere-16mm-camera with its two scales. Hence I can only guess that its b&w-scale was for 25ASA, while its colour-scale was for 16ASA...

I've got a Revere model 81 (Ranger) with a similar exposure guide printed on the door - eg "open shade on a bright day" is marked f 4.

 

It mentions that the guide is for "all colour film and any film rated 10 ASA or Weston 8".

 

Model 81 came out in 1949, while your model 88 came out in 1940.
