The taking films have antistatic layers incorporated, No comparison of blank leader to dedicated camera stocks.

After all, this "stuff" of dreams is mankind's most original medium, and dates back to 1895. ~ Steven Spielberg

 

Wrong, it dates back to 1887 as the invention of Hannibal Goodwin, celluloïd film, 1888 as first used in a chronophotographic camera by Louis Augustin Le Prince in Leeds, England, 1893 as conceived with a perforation by William Kennedy Laurie Dickson that got later standardised, and 1894 as first projected by Jean LeRoy in Manhattan, New York City. The Lumière screenings of December 1895 were only the first in Europe.

 

Not to forget Georges Emile Joseph Démény with his beater movement in 1893, Charles Moisson with his perforating mechanism for the Lumière family in 1894, the Dickson-Casler-Marvin perforating mechanism for the AMC also in 1894, and Eugène Augustin Lauste’s invention of the film loop for Major Latham in 1895. William Green designed flickerless projection for John Prestwich in 1896 after earlier unfruitful attempts.


In Topic: Are 200ft Super 8Rolls gone forever???

With reference to the Double-8mm thread at the time I should suggest to look into that format. You have the Fairchild Cinephonic cameras that take 50-ft. rolls, the French GIC 8 accepts 50 feet, too. 2 minutes 46 seconds at speed 24. Paillard-Bolex H-8 cameras accomodate 100-ft. rolls, so 8,000 frames for a take of 5 minutes 33 seconds. 400-ft. magazines were adapted to H cameras and still can be. An H-8 with mag. would offer 22 minutes 13 seconds running time at 24 fps. Half-thick film like Gigabit film 40 (not available since years) would double that to 44 minutes 26 seconds. Crazy enough
