wondering if anyone has ever found a working model of one of these frame enlarger and actually used it:


Also besides, the wolverine titan scanner being sold, can someone please suggest other means of "blowing up" 8mm and super 8mm frames? I'm not looking to scan a whole reel, just individual frames.

I used to use something called a "Cinelarger" that was sold back in the 1970s with pretty good results. I remember that you loaded a roll of 120 film in it, and clipped the section of super 8 film with the frame you wanted to capture over an aperture at the top. Then you exposed the 120 film using a flood lamp for a few seconds...

the cinelarger uses 120 film, not 35mm. post edited [Wink]

I remember ones that were a lens for a 35mm SLR. You'd mount the lens, move the film through the 8mm gate, look through the viewfinder and shoot the frame you chose.

I also remember a cheapy that was a single piece plastic camera that used 126 film. I saw it advertised at a photo shop in Manhattan, but never quite got around to buying one when I was running around over there.(-teenager: broke!).

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

The Wolverine mod currently underway, has allowed me to pull out some amazing still images, tiff or jpg.

For B&W prints I used to make contact negatives on positive film and make prints with a photographic enlarger. At one time I used a "toy" projector (10w editor lamp) to project on still and take a time exposure for colour prints.

A decent DSLR/Mirrorless camera with macro(and extensions) should do the trick as well. May try this out tonight. [Wink]

If you have scanner that can scan slides and negatives, this dealer 3-D prints custom film holders for odd film formats, including 8mm and super 8.
