devon post: 8mm home movies!

I found this awesome Kodak 8mm movie camera at a garage sale and bought it for two bucks!

this is the type of camera that made those classic home movies that played on projectors. it uses double 8 film which you can still buy! so i did and made my own home movie. i bought my film at
http://www.dwaynesphoto.com/ . i also has it processed there double 8 film is actually 16mm film but you run it through the camera twice exposing one side at a time then they cut it in half in processing. here is the processed film compared to the original film you get

i don't have a projector yet but i had the film converted to a digital file so i could see it in the meantime this is also good cause i can show you

Devon,

This is so cool. I'll have to have you come take movies of my family someday. That would be the most fun.
