Japanese publishers are always surprising me when they pack items for their buyers. It happens a lot in vinyls collecting scene making Japanese pressing have always been sought after by the world collectors.

Now, I have just found this type of different packing in super 8mm films.

Japan is really a nearly "unknown for us collectors unless, of course, you are resident over there and know just what is available on super 8! It appears, from what I have seen, that they had super 8 optical as well as scope films long before it was ever adopted anywhere else ...

Can Jason, perhaps, verify that? [Smile]

Yes, Osi they did have Super 8 optical films here quite early.
Even before Super 8, Toei was selling the Toei Talkie 8M that could play standard 8 magnetic and optical films. I have a few optical Regular 8 educational films that were made for elementary and junior high schools here in Japan by Toei.

As far as Super 8 films, I would definitely say that optical Super 8 films are more prevalent that magnetic films here in Japan.

Toei,Fujifilm, and Daiei Film all released features in Scope with optical soundtracks in the 1970s.
