hi, I've just bought my first video camera, a chinon 672 c for £12. I wondered if you knew whether the cartridges are still made for it, and if so where i can get them? I can't find them for sale anywhere, and I thought I might just be lookign in the wrong places, or missing something obvious. if anyone can help me with tips about thsi camera or starting out in general it'd be much appreciated.
if it's any, in the manual the picture shows a 'KODAPAK MOVIE CARTRIDGE' being loaded.
thanks,

Great camera, but it's not a video camera, it's a movie camera.

Film can be gotten all over the place, but the closest reputable dealer near you is likely the Widescreen Centre. Or you could contact Kodak directly, of course.

Hi,

You have realised what that thing's going to cost you to run, right?

Do you have a projector?

yes, sort of realise the cost involved. a housemate and myself are goign to split the cost of a projector (under $20 on ebay), hopefully we'll be able to find some old cartrdiges as well as it's goign to mostly be band visual stuff.
Thanks for the help, I'll let you know how it goes.

Don't bother with old film, you don't know its condition. Buy new film cartridges, they're cheap enough.

Otherwise you'll never know if the problems you have are film or camera.
