Unlike modern equipment such as Go Pro’s or iPhones which can be dropped and still function, analog movie equipment must be properly cared for and shielded from excessive bumps and bangs which will damage the equipment. So once you settle on your choice of camera, the first most important accessory is the case.
The main purpose of the case is impact protection. Unlike your modern devices like your cell phone which you can regularly drop and rarely has an impact on its function, if you drop a Super 8 camera there is a very good chance it will not longer function properly. For this reason we recommend a case for impact protection when shipping, storing or transporting your camera.
Pro8mms custom fitted case is the perfect accessory and housing for any Super 8 camera. It has a hard plastic case with pick n pluck foam for easy interior customization for camera, film and accessories. (CAMERA SOLD SEPARATELY)

We repair all aspects of the camera, including internal-structures, body, battery systems and more, so you are getting the very best camera with characteristics that surpass the original factory specifications.
What camera models can you repair?
Pro8mm works on select Beaulieu and Canon camera models. We currently repair the Beaulieu 4008 series, Classic Pro, Canon 814 Auto Zoom, Canon 514xl, Canon 310xl, Pro814, RhondaCam and RhondaCam Deluxe.
What type of film does a max8 camera take?
Max8 cameras can shoot with any normal super 8 cartridge. This includes both pro8 and super 8 film stocks. The modification is in the camera, not the film. The advantage of shooting on max 8 is that you get 20% more image on the frame because it utilizes the area once reserved for the audio track.
Do the cameras record sound?
Super 8 film stocks with the magnetic sound stripe are no longer manufactured and therefore it is no longer possible to record sound directly onto the film using a super 8 sound camera. However, it is possible to record sync sound on a separate audio recorder while shooting with a crystal-sync super 8 camera. The motors in these cameras are crystal-controlled to ensure consistency in the filming speed, so they remain in perfect synchronization with the sound recorder.
