I am new here and know nothing about real film. I got some Chinese 8.75mm film reels from a friend and I would like to try editing them. I don't know if I can use the splicers for 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm. Or can the viewers for the dual 8mm be used to view the 8.75mm film ? I know my questions seem stupid but I am really eager to edit these films. Maybe I can digitalize these films and then edit them on computer, are there any suitable scanner for this format? If I can, I would prefer editing it manuelly, it's a great chance for me to learn about film. Thanks a lot !

Unfortunately that odd 8.75 seems too dimensionally different than Super8. [Frown] The perforation shape seems identical,but that's it.

Might need its own set of equipments to handle it.

Just a lone collector from a faraway land...
