This is a link post Vlogging with an 8mm film camera I made this!
This is how a fleeting idea ends up taking weeks of your life.

This is a normal post It's the future.
I'm going to distribute my podcast on wax cylinders dropped from a hot air balloon.

This is a normal post was interesting how badly the film coped with him walking

This is a normal post True
Yes, I suspect it was less the walking, and more the light adjustment that caused the problem, but it flickered badly so had to cut away

This is a normal post FYI, if you need to pick up rolls of 8mm reversal film
https://www.gaugefilm.co.uk/store/c9/8mm_Reversal.html

These guys now have the new(!) Kodak Ektachrome in stock for the same £70 with processing.
They also offer a digital scan with optional enhancements too.

The Ektachrome has a nicer colour cast than the Wittner rebranded Agfa stock.

This is a normal post The film was actually from gaugefilm
I used 'Agfa Aviphot Chrome 200D' and had a digital scan as you suggested. Much better quality than the VHS transfer of my parents 8mm reels in the 80's which were obviously SD quality... well worse than that.

The difference being you needed someone else to film you in the 70's. If they were interested.

This is a normal post Ha, yes
And then it feels more obvious that you want to be the star of the show

This is a normal post love a bit of A-team-style building
it's interesting as a lot of our photos and film from that era have washed-out colours because of the film, it tends to affect your memories, as if reality was also that way instead of being just as crisp as our eyeballs are now. So your film looks like you've invented a time machine

This is a normal post Absolutely
I shot a test reel with my nephews, and it was very hard to imagine that these were modern day kids. The Isle of Wight looks much the same as it did in the 70's which adds to the illusion

This is a normal post Nostaligic
How quickly things date - in the time it took you to get the film developed and edit it Bogies has been demolished and is just a hole in the ground now and a couple of the high street shops arenít there any more.

Now thereís a problem you donít get with modern vlogging!

Looks exactly like shots from the cache of 8mm film we found when clearing out my Grandad's house - if you didn't look at the car number plates in yours it could be exactly the same age!
