It's an excellent article on starting out! It summarizes most of the issues related to buying a camera. Not sure I'd get a 514XL, but that's just me. The advice is sound.
So, anyone on the internet who wants to know how to get started with Super 8... read this! It's a great take on getting started.
Thanks so much for the nice words and feedback.
You had me worried for a moment that things had got even more mangled in editorial but the article suggests the 514XL-S as a cheap quality camera that is easy to get hold of. It's a completely different camera to the 514XL although personally I also love the 514XL because it's small with some nice options but the 514XL-S is a more straightforward Canon Super 8 camera that doesn't get fought over like some of the other canon options. It's actually quite nice. You can read about it here:
