Those XL series Camare as are known as having the "chesse" gears which are made of a plastic that breaks down to something soft but Brittle over time. Probably was chosen to make the camera quieter when it was new. There are many good used super 8 cameras on the market, but the available films have changed over time.

Many mail order dealers sell the Ektachrome 100D Super 8 cartridges. B&H is just one that I know of. Processing is standard E-6 and can be done at Dyanes if you don't have a local dealer who can arrange it.

The other super 8 films are Tri-x B&W reversal and several Eastman colour negative films. The colour negative film is almost always scanned to video. The Tri-x will probably need to go to a movie lab.
