Don't neglect standard 8 as an option as well. Frame size is a little bit smaller, but some extremely good cameras and lenses were made for the format, such as the Bolex H8 Reflex with three-lens turret. It is actually 16mm stock (though it is perfed differently) that is run through the camera once in each direction, each time exposing only half the film's width. During processing, it is slit down the middle and the two halves are spliced at the ends. This is all my family ever shot, and all I have ever shot as well (for 8mm, anyhow). As I mentioned, I just got the camera in which I am going to try Super 8 for the first time.
