above: How to know if your camera can take Cine 8 film? Open your camera compartment. You will see one empty spool (the take-up Spool). Need a camera take-up spool? Grab one from The FPP!
How does this film work?
Regular 8 film is actually 16mm in width (on a 25 ft 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, the film is then ready for scanning.
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.
Terms – With the rare exception of a film product recall, user issues with film are a by-product of the deterioration of parts in the vintage cameras used to shoot the film. Even functioning and previously tested vintage cameras may experience motor film transport issues, film breakage, light leaks, over-and-under-exposure, and emulsion scratches. We feel it is important to bring your attention to these risks as we do not accept returns, offer replacement film or refunds on movie film.
