Even the off topic area seems still not remotely far enough to talk about 8mm film, but I guess many of you have ample experience with the format, which then does justify my asking here.
For a shoot I want to have this typical 8mm kodachrome kinda look. And what would be a better option to 'emulate' this, then using the actual stuff, right?
I've seen cameras on offer for very little and the film costs are well within reach, so no problems there. I just would like to know if there's very significant things to look for when buying an 8mm camera? I mean: the intended look may have all the 'shoddy' effects of a seventies home movie, but it would be nice if the camera performs the way a good quality 8mm camera should.
That said, I'm thinking about bidding on a never used Chinon 805S camera, which is in mint condition. I've researched some archives but I can't make out whether this is a decent cam and what I should offer for it.
