Over 60 million Super 8 film cameras were made between 1965 and 1985. Home movies, music videos and feature films have all been shot with Super 8. Traditionally, these were reversal films used in projectors. But now, 8mm users are scanning, editing and sharing their photos on computers and the web.
No digital plug in can replicate the amazing quality or archival value of true film. If you want to achieve the look of film, why not shoot the real thing! The Rhonda CAM is the world's most personal point-and-shoot Super 8 film camera. Rebuilt to surpass original factory specifications, this American restoration film camera's features include a custom skin appearance, shooting at 18fps, a compact size and simplistic features and functions.
