I've just bought my first Single 8 camera, does anyone know where I could get it serviced in Europe?
Also trying to get hold of film stock but cannot get hold of retro8 in Japan.
Is there anywhere that sells the film or empty cartridges so I can load my own film?
Thanks

Tak is very busy answering emails from all over the world; since he's the only one who speaks English. The best way to get his attention is to send money to them via PayPal. I think a roll of film is around $38 with processing--add 5 for shipping. He'll respond when he sees the order come through. Don't know if anyone who services single 8 cameras. It may be cheaper just to buy buy cameras off ebay.
