How are Pro8mm cameras different from other Super 8 cameras?
Pro8mm’s cameras are rebuilt original Super 8 cameras. They are artfully re-crafted by our in-house team of technicians with decades of experience. 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.
Can I order Super 8mm film with my Rental?
Yes! Choose from any of our Super 8mm Film Packages under Buy Film. All Super 8 film options work with our 3 rental models. Choose a film that best suits your lighting conditions. For more info on film stock choices, visit Buy Film.
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 strip are no longer manufactured and therefore it is no longer possible to record sound directly onto the film using a super 8 camera. Our Classic Pro rentals are currently the only cameras we offer that can record sound using Crystal Sync. Using a separate audio recorder, the motors in these cameras are crystal-controlled to ensure consistency in the filming speed, so they remain in perfect synchronization with a sound recorder.
Can I extend the length of my camera rental?
If you need to keep your rental for longer, please call the office so we can check the availability. Some cameras are rented by other clients and will need to be returned on the date you selected. But if available, we are happy to extend your rental for the dates required.
