    Kodak

    makes good super8 film. Call any Kodak shop and see if they
    can refer you to where you can pick it up and who can process it.
    I think it's a lot more common than you'd believe.

    im glad you started this thread i have a question of my own. i got a camera(which dosnt work) off of e bay. when the camera came there was a half used roll of super 8 in there. i shot the other half in rhode island and took it to be developed. heres my problem, the chemicals used to develop are now obsolete, and have been since the late 80's. its KODACHROME 2 by kodak and i dont really kow what do. the guy who works at the developing company told me a story of when he had a roll of this stuff.

    he said after searching for about 3 months he avenually found a branch of kodak that would develope it. so he sent it in and the waiting began. it took them a year and a month to get it back to him, after he call them almost every month asking about it. when they sent it to him they told him this:the film is almost obsolete, so we have to make a special batch of chemicals for it. we waited until we have enough of the film to make a batch, which take a while because again, its almost obsolete.

    so im wondering, does anyone have a roll that we can send in together?or maybe a place that will develop it quicker? let me know

    it kind of looks like this:

    dont trust walmart.

    you only want kodak professionals foing the work.
    and besides... it's not like you've got a air date and
    need the turn around that quickly.

    would it be a wise investment to purchase a light meter so i can have an idea of what will come out and what will not?

    a light meter is a good investment because you
    can use it in all of your photographic projects.
    They take a little bit of work to learn but it's a great
    tool to have. I still think the best thing to do is just
    to shoot a roll of film as a test in all types of lighting
    and screen the results just to make sure the camera
    is working and that you'll get the results you want.

    even with the perfect exposure and a good light meter,
    a registration problem or a light leak or even a hair
    in the gate can send your project to poopsville.
