This is a higher ISO (speed) film than most BW 8mm films. A
ND (Neutral Density) filter is recommended if you wish to shoot in broad daylight.

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.
This film WILL NOT fit Super 8 cameras. Due to the age of vintage movie cameras, we do not accept returns on movie film.
