I was just watching the official video of "Pictures of You" by The Cure and noticed Robert Smith brandishing what appeared to be a Beaulieu 5008 a few times in the video. Little things like this make me happy.

Yup.  23 years ago that video inspired me to pick up my first camera.  It was a similar Super-8 camera I found in my folks basement.

why does anyone worry about grain? I love it. Just watched Sydney Lumet on PBS, he certainly didn't worry about it and did alright in his career.
