What is Max 8?

Max 8 is a widescreen Super 8 film format with increased resolution for beautiful HD picture quality. This process involves widening the film gate to allow maximum use of the film’s negative space, recollimation of the lens and optics to center the image, and the addition of 16×9 frame lines in the eyepiece to aid in framing for the HD aspect ratio. Max 8 footage must be transferred on a Max 8 equipped scanner for the full quality.

What is Crystal Sync?

Crystal Sync allows you to sync your Classic Pro 8 Super 8 Camera with sound. A crystal-controlled module is built in the camera to keep the motor running at exactly 24 fps (NTSC) or 25 fps (PAL) for sync sound with a separate recorder. This is great for situations where sound and picture must remain in perfect sync, such as music videos or dialogs.
