This Bolex H-9 camera sold for $567.46. Does anyone make 9.5mm film anymore? I don't know much about 9.5mm film but as rare as that camera may be it seems like a lot of money for a camera that you can't use. I thought the value of the old Bolex cameras was the fact that you can still shoot film with them or the value of the lenses on it. This one only has one C-mount lens so I don't think they paid that much the lens.

YES, YES, YES!
H9s are very rare but many other 9.5mm cameras in great working order are still available and there is a VERY active 9.5mm Group in the UK. Both black and white and colour reversal film and processing is freely available in UK, France and probably other parts of Europe. Great Gauge... frame area almost the same as 16mm and was THE Amateur Gauge in Europe. More so than 8mm until Kodachrome was introduced (although Kodachrome did appear for a while in 9.5mm). Super 8 overtook it but it has never really gone away.

That is very true Martin,Tony Reypert of Buckingham Films, does
a splendid job of "modernising" Elf 16mm projectors to 9.5mm
with the added bonus of a good amplifier.Good news for the
9.5 brigade.

Thanks for the information Martin. So who makes the film? is someone slitting and re-perforating Kodak film?

Fuji, for one.
Here's a web page giving some further information.
http://www.pathefilm.freeserve.co.uk/lists/filmlista.htm
Lots of information on this page, including on Group 9.5... read it well and navigate around all his other pages. His site is very informative. There are other UK suppliers as well.
I'm not into 9.5 any more: in fact, I'm not even into shooting real film, as I'm a pensioner with limited means. I enjoy the technology of "Home Movie"equipment these days...repair, modification etc.

Another ridicuolus price for a Derann print:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/INDEPENDENCE-DAY-Derann-Super-8mm-Release-full-feature-/140832768364?pt=US_Film&hash=item20ca49816c
And as a extra insult: "auction endprice not includes shipping".

Just look at the end statement: "not a bargain, but an investment for life only a few prints made, this chance never comes back".

Well, good luck getting that price!!

Funny, under the "Shipping and Payments" tab, the seller says "Will arrange for local pickup only (no shipping)."

ID4 was one of my least favorite movies of all time to pay money to see in a theater. Can't imagine even paying $150 to own a print, let alone $1,500... and of course, nobody else will either.

Being a fairly new collector, maybe there is something about this item I don't know. Assuming this is just 8mm film like we collect, it has be the most expensive film per unit length.

There are enough Disneyland geeks around that this might actually sell for this price or something close to it. I've heard they're a pretty rabid bunch. Or at least dedicated.

Now this is a slight oddity:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/8mm-14-Super-8mm-Fairchild-Moviepak-Seventy-20-Type-Medical-Films-/290779216781?pt=US_Film&hash=item43b3cabb8d

It's not the usual Technicolor cartridges, but according to the vendor: Fairchild “Moviepak Seventy 20” Type Cartridge motion picture film system.
And it looks to me as they have magnetic sound.
Has anyone seen these before?
What kind of projector was used?

And here is yet another oddity:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cine-films-1970s-30-home-movies-with-copyright-/221127491260?pt=UK_Collectables_Photographs_MJ&hash=item337c39bebc

And in the description it's written: We sell many cameras and accessories each week so buy with confidence.
Well if you acctually do that and still can't see that the items in no way are "cine-films" then I have absolutely NO confidence in this seller.
(I hope it's not anyone on this forum thats put this up for sale)

Don't you just hate it when this happens? I bought the "Empire Strikes back" trailer recently but it was too faded for my liking so sold this film to a guy for $10 (at a small loss) and he's immediately relisted it for 99 quid! Anyway, good luck to him.There are insane Star Wars collectors out there who would have no idea that Paul F. and CHC often stock this for 10 pounds.

I love how the seller list this sealed film as "no fading".
Plus somebody is bidding on this overpriced SILENT film.

1955 ORIGINAL TOM AND JERRY SUPER 8 MM

Ha! Ha!
And that will be the excuse: "The listing doesn't say, FILM not faded"

A couple unintentionally funny ebay listings from jokers who think they've won the lottery:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VICTOR-16MM-Sound-PROJECTOR-65-25-Antique-/280703382820?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D4350708 680027775046%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D280703382820%26

(You'll notice the speaker is missing too. If you have to ask, dahling, you can't afford it.)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281041324328?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619

As far as I know, Sandra Smith at Modern Sound Pictures still has a stack of prints of this she'd love to sell at about 8 bucks a piece. She doesn't know what she's missing...

Have a merry and a happy!
