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, the processor slits it down the middle resulting in two lengths of 8mm film (double 8mm), single perforated on each side making for (1) 50 foot roll once spliced together.
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.
