The Advantages of Super 8 Film

There are no advantages of Super 8mm film.

Sorry, just kidding. Read this.


  1. Nice article! Though it's written in 1998, it's still accurate. Unfortunately, there have been some changes on the fillmstock market, f.e. Kodachrome is discontinued (sniff). But there are lots of alternatives.
    And you can easily process/develop films at home. On my site are instructions for those interested: www.super8camera.com

  2. Thanks Harmjan,

    If things keep heading in a digital way, we may all be processing at home. Or at your home. Keep a tank (35mm wide) set aside for me!


  3. Spielberg and Abrams did an utterly superb job keeping the suspense alive throughout the movie. But then it took an extremely wimpy nosedive toward the end. The movie turned from a brilliant, alien thriller to a lukewarm, Saturday afternoon television movie good for the kids! End Result: Forgetable. But, only because of the lame ending.
