I dug into the archive for a film I shot on Super 8 over 20 years ago - Man I feel old!
Just transfered it over this evening, edited it and exported on Movieplus X3, I'll be interested to see how Vimeo compress this.
Most of my super 8 was shot on Agfa Moviechrome 40, purely because it was significantly cheaper than Kodachrome. With hindsight I wish I'd shot more on Kodachrome though this film is in much better condition than a lot of Agfa film I've seen (quite a lot gets a blistered, speckled look).
Interspersed with this is some footage (mostly interiors) shot on Ektachrome 160G - I think the 'G' stood for 'General' meaning you could shoot in most light conditions, though the external shots are quite murky, the film is quite impressive for the interiors, where normal super 8 would have really struggled.
The camera used was my first sound camera (though this film is silent) a chinon AF312XLS - a terrific little camera, capable of lap dissolves. This camera turned a lot of heads with my film maker friends who had previously seen some awful results from earlier Chinons.
Previously Chinon had produced cameras that had mouth-watering specs but rarely delivered. Eventually they turned things around by reducing the overall specs and making more modest zoom lens and getting the quality right. This was shot on a 3x zoom which makes modern camcorder super zoom lenses seem like a luxury!
History lesson over, I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane or worse still recognise yourself.
