New, Yeah New Kodak Super 8mm Camera.

Recommended Posts

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

This is what well-shot and well-scanned Super 8 film looks like:

 

You need 3 ingredients:

- A top-of-the line Super 8 camera with precision film transport and a sharp lens, like a Beaulieu, Canon 1040/840xl or Nikon R10. Today, these can be bought cheap. Paid 25 Euro for my 840xl.
- Kodak Vision 50D stock for the kind of fine-grain, high-resolution footage you see above. Easily reaches the quality that 16mm had in 1970s and 80s.
- A competent scanning service - the operator counts as least as much as the machine. The above examples are from Ochoypico in Spain who are known for their high quality. 

Failing those ingredients (by filming with a cheapo consumer Super 8 camera on grainy and ugly-color stock like Agfa 200D which is currently the only color reversal stock on the market, and having some low-quality scan on a Reflecta or similar), you get results that look like webcam footage.

Man this looks like absolute crap, it’s really completely unusable - leaves look a strange thick green colour not a thin yellow-green, skin has multiple hues rather than the ‘correct’’ green or orange plastic colour, there’s a deep Dof which is so non-cinematic because all of their faces are completely in focus, and where are the in-camera sharpening and NR artefacts that real Camera’s have???
