hello every one, I'm pretty new to 8mm having come across a super 8 camera a Nizo s30. Does any one have any experience of the camera? Essentially i want to do some shooting on it but cant find a user manual in English (as its a German camera) and not sure what film is compatible.

Please be patient with me until i get my head round this, any piratical advice for using this camera?

Hi John!

Any film should work as long as you set the exposure manually (using a meter.) The auto exposure will only work with film speeds of 25/40 daylight or 100/160 artificial. Looks like a nice camera. I have a Nizo S80.

Welcome to the forum!
