    Is regular old 8mm reversal film available?

    I was digging in the basement and found my Mom's old (bought the same year I was born) Kodak Brownie 8mm movie camera and had a thought to try it out. Does anybody sell regular old 8mm film? I see Freestyle has Super 8 and processing on their website, but that wouldn't work, would it?.

    DO NOT send your 8mm out through Walmart. I used walmart several times for 8mm processing, but the last roll I sent them, they cut the can open, exposed it, stuck it back in the can and then returned it with a "SERVICE NOT OFFERED" sticker.
    f/22 and be there.

    Just a few notes: KAHL no longer sells to the general public, he decided it wasn't worth his trouble. Fomapan R100 uses a different reversal process from standard cine reversal film, and not all labs can process it.

    Kodak makes this film; 7265 plus-x reversal (Cine-X B&W Regular-8 Reversal). They won't sell it to you. Need to get it from John Schwind or someone else.

    Unfortunatly Plux-X reversal is no more, they were selling Tri-X reversal.

    Whne the Plux-X WAS available, there was no problem for anyone to order it, as long as you ordered about 20 rolls at a time (400Ft each) The Tri-x has the same sort of Minimum. The reason being that they have to get the Regular 8 Dies out of storage and set up the machine - which no doubt will cause the wastage of a couple of thousand feet of film.
