Hi! I have 3 Super 8 cameras, Canon 310xl, Canon Auto Zoom 814 and Canon 512xl and all in working condition. I also have a Chinon 330 Sound projector, which is also working flawlessly.
I recently decided to start using the cameras and I bought negative Kodak Vision 200T not knowing anything about the formats. The 3 min cassette was shot with 1 minute in each cameras and I noticed from the digital scans some differences with brightness - this is where I think the "nothches" and how the camera reads the cartridge is related. And of course, I found out that negative is not watchable with projector the hard way
So color reversal film is what I need and have to shoot. How does my cameras recognize following film types:
Ektachrome 100D (I think some of my cameras read this correctly as 100D)
Wittner 200D (not any of my cameras support 200D?)
And when do I have to use the tungsten/daylight switch that is in all of cameras.
Sorry for the noob-questions, but I really want to use the same cameras my grandfather did and want to keep shooting Super 8 for years to come, as I have so many good and working cameras. And also share the same feeling with my children I had as a child when we watched the old super 8 reels of my father when he was a young man
Thank you for all of your answers!!!
