    Some cameras can take 100 foot loads. You'd have to seperate it, I'm not sure where you'd get the reels. You'd only need one at a time though.

    The Bolex H-8 cameras use the same body as the H-16, so a 100ft reel fits in there. I'm lucky to have collected some 25, 50 and 100ft original Bolex spools. Unlike 120 still film and 16mm film, with regular-8 movie film the take-up spool is always 'yours.'

    The run-time of an H-8 Bolex with a 100ft reel inside is similar to an H-16 with the big 400ft magazine on top.
