Super 8 Cameras FAQ

What is the Shipping Policy for Camera Purchases?

Most Pro8mm cameras are made to order. Canon cameras (814 & Rhonda CAM) may be in stock and available for immediate shipping, however please check with a sales associate if you need your camera to ship within a few business days. Our Classic Pro camera is made to order, and may take several weeks. Please call and speak to a sales associate if you have questions about turnaround time.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, Pro8mm has clients all over the world. Customers will be responsible for paying any applicable import duties and taxes. Charges may vary based on the contents of the order. Customers are advised to contact their local customs office for further information on current import regulations.

Can I pickup my order?

Yes. In store pickup is available at our Burbank, CA location and may be selected during checkout. A sales team member will contact you when your order is ready for pickup.

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.

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.

For more info on repairs see our Super 8 Camera Repairs collection.

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.
