How to load a Super 8 cartridge


Error message

Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in _resp_img_replace() (line 376 of /var/aegir/platforms/drupal_7b/sites/all/modules/resp_img/resp_img.module).

When I realised that Super 8 film was hard to find and very expensive I thought that I had to find some alternative solution. I heard of someone using Double Super 8, cutting and loading in the Super 8 carts. That was almost scaring me but I wanted to try. After a lot of experiments and tests in the light I finally started to do in the darkness. I gradually improved my technique with some tip. Especially the tip of the "cylinder" that helped me to load film in the reverse way and the tip of the piece of paper that I used to block the film. In this video I talk about them. Hopefully it can help.
