    I have shot standard 8mm with Kodaks, Nizos, and 16mm on a Bolex, but just got a Minolta Super 8 camera as well. Should be fun while it lasts!

    Have you used the Ektachrome 64T or did you shoot Kodachrome?

    Hello,

    None of the above!

    I shot Plus-X, Tri-X, Ektachrome 100D, F64D (the only Fuji film I have used), 250D, 200T, and 500T!

    I can get all this stock and get it processed locally for reasonable rates with same-day turnaround. Not true for Kodachrome. I also prefer the color response and contrast of Ektachrome and the color neg. varieties I tried. Kodachrome does have its "look", but I prefer these other films.

    I do have one roll of Kodachrome 25 standard 8 sitting here. It expired in 1979. I'll shoot it some time and see what happens.

    Has Kodachrome 64 been discontinued as a motion film?

    My main use of motion picture films has been:

    1. shooting performances; mainly for friends (this is where the Tri-X, 200T, and 500T were used - then scanned and AVID)
    2. "experimental" projects that are far closer to still photo work than film work (mostly Plus-X and Ektachrome 100D - usually a mix of in-camera editing and manual splicing, and projected)
    3. required school projects (F64D, 250D, 200T, and Plus-X - then scanned and AVID)

    Does anyone here process their own Super8 film?

    I've seen the Lomo tanks on eBay but they seem to have limited availability.

    I have not processed my own Super8 film but am interested in doing so. B&W reversal to begin with.

    Tom.
