Hi there, i was wondering could help me identify this cartridge i bought from a local charity store. It appears to be either greek or russian.

 

Also hopefully someone can tell me wether it's been exposed or not? The film exposed at the side appears to be at what i think is the end of the real, it will only move if pushed upwards or the spindle on the side is moved clockwise in the direction of the arrow. Am i right in thinking this means it has been exposed?

Looks like SVEMA film made in Ukraine.

Thanks, it is SVEMA! Can anyone tell me anymore about the film? Is it black and white? What is the ASA?

 

I was thinking about possibly doing a double exposure, is this even possible? I'm new to 8mm i have quite a bit of experience with still film though.

svema, bw, 50 asa. I love it! I have used almost 20 of those in the past. the widescreen shop in UK uses to sell them. Develop as tri-x, it should work. when it is totally exposed, there will be some hieroglyphs (cyrilic :-)  ) written on the film, like the 'exposed' of kodak.

If it is exposed you will see the end of the film.
