    [Super8] Vision3 50D

    Hello All,

    Has anyone shot 50D in Super8?

    Was the cartridge notched? I have an Elmo Super 103 which has the typical ASA sensitivity (25/40, 40/64, 64/100, 100/160). If 50D is recognised as 40ASA it would be ideal as the recently discontinued 100D was too fast in bright sun.

    Is 50D notched as a 40ASA film?

    Thanks!
    Steve.

    Basically one could

    -) notch a virgin cassette
    -) broaden a notch in a notched assette
    -) tighten a notch in a notched cassette

    I have come to understand that it is notched as 40D from testimonies made on other forums.

    Thanks kuparikettu. Reading between the lines on cinematography.com I had guessed as much.

    Expensive game now - I use to pay £12 for process paid Kodachrome 40, now I'm looking at £60 for a roll of 50D + processing + telecine.

    Hi Umut,

    It's a rich man's game and I'm not a rich man. I'm thinking about this mostly out of curiosity as I've never shot neg film in a cine camera. I am a very low level user these days - one roll per year at best. I know there's Velvia being cut down but that's not good for people shooting and there's rumours of a new Agfa film but that may be 200ASA - too fast for my camera. Back in the early '90s I found my father's Kodachrome movies from the '70s and he had footage of me learning to walk. This year I shot our boy doing the same on 100D. In years to come he may find that reel and hold it up to the light. He won't see much of interest if it had been neg film. This is probably the end of the road for Super 8 and me but I might splurge $100 for another 200 seconds of magic.
    Steve.

    What a about a "fast" reversal film and a grey-filter in front of the lens?

    Sadly my camera is non-TTL and has no exposure control.

    I myself am hoping that my friend starts to offer super-8 to 16mm blowups. Then I could have the best of both worlds: negs and prints!

    Is it cheap? Certainly not. But I'd say this was never a cheap hobby to begin with. Considering that it isn't really that surprising that my grandparents never owned an 8mm film camera, they only borrowed one from their friends. There is only about 30 minutes worth of film of my father's childhood and youth. That's about 2 minutes per year...

    And many couldn't afford even that much.
