This film is standard 8mm high speed color negative film, also know as regular 8 film format or double 8. Perfect for indoor shooting or street cinematography. Negative film is not for projecting in a vintage projector but for scanning to a digital file. This film is for LOW LIGHT shooting. You will need a 85 (orange) filter + ND (Neutral Density) filters if you wish to shoot in broad daylight.

How does this film work?
Regular 8 film is actually 16mm in width when you receive it (on a 25ft daylight camera spool). On the first pass though the camera, the film is exposed only along half of its width. When the first pass is complete, you open the camera and flip / swap the spools. The same film is exposed along its other edge. After the film is developed, both sides of the film is scanned to create an approx. 4 minute file (per roll).
How do I load my camera?
Each camera is slightly different but check out this video where Michael Raso loads a Revere 8 Model 88.
The Fine Print - Due to the age of vintage movie cameras, we do not accept returns on movie film. Some of the specific risks inherent to shooting film in vintage cameras - even functioning and previously tested vintage cameras - include light leaks, overexposure, underexposure and emulsion scratches. We feel it is especially important we bring this to your attention prior to the purchase of film as we do not accept returns on still or motion picture film.
