An introduction: Hi!! I'm Elie in Mansfield, Ohio. I'm not a filmmaker, but I have an interest in very old cameras. I recently came upon a number of old double 8 and 16mm cameras and a few super 8's, and, in addition to the working with old still film cameras, I thought I'd try and learn to use some of the 8 and 16 cameras. I'm experimenting with the 8's already, and I want to get the 16 working for a family vacation in a couple months.
My question: I was disheartened to see the 16's, which require the Kodak 16 magazine, work with double perf film only. I'd been trying to see if there is some way to modify a magazine 16 to work with single perf only. Google and any other searches keep bringing me back here. I found some posts of people modifying cameras, but no one has mentioned modifying the magazines yet. Has anyone been able to successfully modify a Magazine 16 canister to work with modern 16mm films? Will it work? How are the results? Can you share the instructions?
Thanks in advance!
