    Thanks for the offer Diane. I'm in the early exploratory phase right now and haven't committed myself to doing it. I'll keep you in mind though. Thanks!

    The Bolex H8s modified for Super 8 have the advantage of the larger image, without the disadvantages of the plastic cartridge. They need "Double Super 8" film, though.

    I am looking to get into 8mm. My work has several Nizos in right now. We just sold a Heliomatic 8 Focovario, and we have four others with fixed lenses. We got 12 cameras to sell on consignment, and we have already sold eight of them, including a Dekko, two Zeisses (one straight 8 and one super 8), and a Fairchild in addition to the Nizos. I don't know if I should snap up one of the remaining Nizos, however, given that they are straight 8 and not super 8. I would actually prefer to shoot straight 8, since I really find the older cameras to be much more fun, but I have to research film and processing availability first. I would like to shoot Plus-X, Tri-X, 64T, 500T, and Fuji F64D (if it is available in 8mm). The only straight 8 film Freestyle has is Foma 100R.

    I have to disagree with a cine forum being hybrid in nature. If film needs to be scanned to share it then thats no different to scanning a print to share in the APUG Gallery.

    If some footage is very basically edited digitally then thats no different to cropping or resizing for the APUG gallery.

    Lets face it, the film industry needs people burning film and the amount of tri-x passing through a super8 per minute is shocking

    Add the Cine forum or at least start a social group with forums enabled. (I need the excuse to get my nizo out of the box!!)

    An analogue cine social group sounds like a good idea. I'll start it.
