    There are a few of us fiddling around, and a few doing more serious work, with small gauge cine cameras. There are a few dispersed threads on 8mm, S8, and 16mm film shooting and processing, and a social group at--

    http://www.apug.org/forums/groups/ac...ser-group.html

    The social group can be a little more flexible about topics like telecine and digital editing than we generally are in the regular forums.

    How do you prepare the cartridge (slicing up the film, insertion etc.)?

    There are some reusable S8 cartridges that were in the Soviet Union. Sometimes they come up on eBay.

    I think the biggest problem with slicing up other film is going to be perforation. There are companies that slice down and repackage film, so maybe they could do it.

    This looks fantastic. Hard to believe it's S8 and the sync is great. APX25 was such an amazing film.

    on the first clip the mother of all clips...at the end 12mins in.
    shot of the guy leaning against the car pulling back to reveal the women that was agfa apx 25 as well.
    had about 10 rolls made using the old russian cartridges.
    i remember being in the telecine suite,when the apx 25 stuff came up everyone gasped,at full resolution on an 8000 dollar sony monitor it looked amazing. even with a super 8 size frame it had a seriously fine grain.
    i pleaded with agfa to give me 400ft and 1000ft rolls of 35mm but the company was not interested as they were in financial trouble.
    i now wish,i had got some made into 16mm as this film was beautiful.

    May I ask how you cut down the film, and how you managed to get the sprocket holes in correctly? It does look gorgeous.

    I shoot a fair bit of Super 8 and process most of it myself (Both color and black and white, but haven't tried negative stocks yet.) Depending on what's needed I take out the Canon 814Xl-s, Beaulieu 4008ZMII, or a Nizo S800 (Why can't more cameras have the ability to open op the shutter fully? It's capable of some amazing results..)

    I would actually advice doing color reversal first, as it's quite a bit easier compared to B&W reversal, considering there's no re-exposing needed in color development. Temperature is always the key, though. And loading correctly can be quite tricky.. Good luck!

    i got super 8 sound/PRO 8 california to do a load of stocks,but i had big problems with dirt and unstable images. and bad customer service.
    i spent a fortune.i then found a batch of russian cartridges that you could open,and found an old geezer in a film lab near notting hill london.
    the lab was a motion picture lab and they had big old slitter perf machine.
    he did all the work for 5 pounds a roll.
    the lab has now gone and i do not know what happened to the machine.
    the film had excellent stability.
    the stocks i had made into super 8 were.

    That is probably a good idea, but I'd still need a physical mechanism / contraption to develop the film. An altered Jobo reel might be preferable from my point of view.
