Well its just over 4 years since I last shot some Super8 film at the old cinema that I finally got round to getting the last roll developed the other week. The results were quite good and now intend to mount an old 35mm Scope lens in front of the camera and shoot some Scope...so that's my next wee film project, anyway here are a couple of quick photos of that last roll of film when it came back last week

Great idea Graham! I did that many years ago when I shot super 8, and you will not be disappointed! The only thing I would caution, (unless you have already figured out the problem), is setting up that scope lense on your super 8 camera as, unless it's put on just right, you might get the outer edges of the lense on all corners of your scope image.

I found that it worked just fine if I zoomed in just a little, but it did limit the kinds of shots I could do.

By the way, I found that Ektachrome 64T tended to give me a slightly purplish "tinge" to the overall color spectrum. Have you run into that?

Sounds Good, Graham!

My old friend Tim Christian shot 'scope Super-8.

He was also a boater and found when he shot 'scope from the deck of his boat the effect on screen was kind of nauseating!

Super-8 is very friendly to hand held shooting, but when you go 'scope it's better to go with a tripod.

My experience with 64T is the color was great, it was the grain that was a little too much.

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I agree Osi it does look a bit that way, not as good as old Kodak film that's for sure. However film still has that certain look. There is a chap on Facebook who has shown amazing results using Super8 in Scope.

Steve without a doubt this this is a tripod job and will have be carefully thought out with the camera on manual and at least one stop more to allow for the loss of light through the scope lens. I have one reel left of 64T so will use that one reel only and see how it works out The film wont be any more than three and a half minutes long. I have a good idea how to mount the Scope lens its going to be heavy [Roll Eyes] [Smile]

I must say, though, those photos of some of what you have shot have really nice color and very sharp! I look forward to seeing how you do with you're scope photography. I'll have to dig mine out, as I shot a few reels at that park with "Old faithful", (I forget the name of the park at the moment).

Oh yeah, there's something to watch out for. I forgot just how much more you capture when you film in scope. I was shooting Old faithful going off, and this jerk kept on wandering into the shot from the left, he look back, get out of range (as I yelled at him) and then ... later on, he'd re-appear, farther away, but yet, in the picture again! GRRRR!
