I took the picture at the Museum of this monster. This hovercraft used to run between Dover and Calais.

Kodak Super 8 movie camera.
Kodak has announced that it will be making a brand new super 8 movie camera.
It will incorporate a flip out LCD monitor.
The lens will be C-Mount. This will make the camera be able to accept interchangeable c mount lenses. This is a big thing to film makers.
It will have an audio record input.
The Kodak super 8 movie camera will use the same cartridge system of old.
Larger film gate almost 11 percent.
Estimated price will be between $2,500 to $3000 US dollars.
This price is very high for a super 8 camera. I would suggest that for this type of money you go the 16mm route.
8mm film lengths on reels.
The original Super 8 and Standard 8 cine films which came in a plastic cassette and were 50ft long reels.

50ft reel 3 Inch diameter reel.
200ft reel 5 inch diameter reel.
400ft reel 7 Inch diameter reel.

Sometimes on the larger reels there is ruler marks on the side of the reel showing feet and another showing meters. This tends to be more common on the 400ft reels.
