Decided to do a tribute to an old cine camera I own...

In these days when cameras are ubiquitous, and digital is the format of common use, it's hard for the "young'n's" to comprehend a time when if you wanted to make your own "movie", you had to first buy film, then expose it, then process it, and finally project it.

While looking for film for this old Revere 40 8mm mag cine recently, I came across a forum where someone was asking how to transfer their 8mm film to DVD. One bright young individual proffered the advise of "if you still own the camera, just hook up the RCA jacks to your computer's video capture system and then you can burn it to DVD."

Obviously, something lost in translation. ;)

man I love shooting film... did a short on super 8 a few years ago. I have a collection of cameras and super 8 is one of my favorite things to shoot... my transfer methods are not very eloquent... it involves a projector, a poster board and a digital camera :)

we used to watch the 8mm of my mom and her brothers growing up. Was always fun to make them run backwards or go back up the big slide
