A New Line of 8mm Film for Regular 8 Motion Picture Cameras!
Analog photography resource the Film Photography Project is bringing back another lost and forgotten film format with its new line of color negative and BW reversal Regular 8mm Motion Picture Film!
The CINE8 8mm film line (also known as regular 8 or double 8) consists of new 8mm film stock that is perforated, then hand-cut and hand-rolled in our Film Prep room before being packaged on individual 25 ft camera daylight spools, resulting in in 4 minutes and 10 seconds of footage in most early cameras that shoot 16 fps (or 2 minutes and 47 seconds for those vintage cameras that can shoot industry standard 24 fps).
How to shoot Regular 8mm film?
On the first pass through the camera, only half the width of the film is exposed. Once you’ve completed the first pass, simply open the camera, flip and swap the spools, thread the film, close the camera and shoot the other half of the roll. It is important to note that the CINE 8 film spools drop easily into all regular 8 motion picture film cameras that take 25 ft spools but is not intended for 8mm cameras that take cartridges or Super 8 cameras.
