4.) The ZC1000 is a very substantial camera with great qualities and interchangable lenses. 5.)Japanese quality control. I've been to Japan during my stint in the Navy in 1984. I saw the disc camera film of poorly shot photos from the crew members which came back with after processing in Japan and the quality was startling. 6.) Optional sound stripe gluded on during processing.
The only two negatives are the cost of film is $16-$18 vs. $11 kodachrome. Processing is $10 vs. $5-10 kodachrome. So there is a slight difference. And of course the wait. 4-6 weeks.
I'm going to give it an honest try. My results with Foma B&W film with a purring like a kitten Canon Double super-8 camera was dissapointing. My Nikon R-10 produced a more stable picture than the Canon. I encourage those how are sick and tired of complaining about your results to give Fuji a try. ( This is an unpaid commercial)

kodak has now admitted that su8 homemovie makers / prjoectonists (red those shooting reversal) are not part of kodaks su8 business equation anymore so the switch to si8 is quite simple to me. also the si8 prices overe here are pretty low at the moment so that is no probl either.
last but not least: poststriping of soundtracks on the film done along with processing is a huge advantage for us who projects our films.

Heck, you can screw a Canon zoom on a Fujica z1000 and all your fantasies will have come true.

in europe there was nothing to touch k40 with its reasonsable allthough still expensive price includung a faboulous logistic system for processing in swizz. no one cound touch that.
now that kodak liquidated the k40 the switch is simple n easy. they even took the 125t away from me.
btw do i see a slight contradiction here? why would i need the best 8mm option available for my family home movies while the "pros" are more than satisfied with a second rate trouble mared 8mm system?
