One stupid question about shooting on Super 8
Posted 23 July 2005 - 05:37 AM
Do I have to keep my eye close to the viewfinder when shooting to prevent light getting in on the film or is it safe even if the viewfinder isn´t covered (which I really hope, regarding the pictures we would like to shoot)?
Hoping for answers and thank you!

I think I´ll just throw a rag over my head while shooting so I don´t have to keep my eye close to the eyepiece all of the time That should work.

Although you ARE supposed to have the vf covered somehow, honestly, I've back off many, many times, and never noticed anything wrong with my footage, so I don't think it's going to be the difference between having beautiful footage and ruined footage.
Best idea: SHOOT TESTS and see for yourself.
