It doesn't matter as Super 8 negative cartridges are available from Pro8MM in Burbank and they use the same cartridge type.

I'll wait til they have one in S16. Super 8 was cool for a bit but at some point you have to move on.

It has been discussed here long before. Even with participation of the designer and manufacturer.

Hi Matthew et. al.,

 

I'll wait til they have one in S16. Super 8 was cool for a bit but at some point you have to move on.

 

We've earlier made a statement about our current platform being able to support also 16mm which is true however we are not planning to do a 16mm variant of our camera at present time nor in the foreseeable future (next couple of years) since there are already many good 16mm cameras available on the market.

 

A big drive for 16mm (except it being a larger format) is the use of reel material instead of the cartridge which allows longer filming time which I'd say is the major drawback to general super-8 and we'll be bringing out a special magazine option for our camera that holds 200ft reels to solve this.

 

Best regards

Lasse, Logmar
