rolls of Super8Sound Film
Tag # 000762
Just before I left Light
Work in February of 1998, someone donated a bunch of rolls
of Super8Sound film. Since I was going on another roadtrip
with Trey through the south, I bought a few rolls and started
my search for a Super8Sound Camera..
I was kicking myself b/c I have had 2 or three Sound cameras
in the past but since the film was no longer available I got
rid of them.
I couldn't find a camera for the film anywhere and I broke
down on the day before my trip and went to K&M camera on
23rd Street where I charged $189.00 on my new Household Mastercard,
( I had just quit my job, planned on making a ski
movie, and had about $600 in the bank)
Well, Trey and I drove through the South and I shot a few rolls
of film. While shooting I noticed a weird noise, so when I was
settled in Salt Lake City, I sent it back to K&M. After
looking at it they sent it back and said it was fine, So I shot
another roll and the noise came back. So the next time I was
in New York I brought the camera, and it still made the noise
as I shot a roll of film one block from the store.
When I went into the store however it wouldn't make the noise.
And the guy thought that I was crazy after already having sent
it back to me once.
So maybe I am crazy and this $327.32 camera is as good as the
day that I bought it... (I say $327 b/c I have been paying interest
on the camera for the last three years)
It is really clean and according the experts at K&M is
in prime working condition. I will include the letter from K&M
telling me how well it works. I will also include three rolls
of Super8Sound Film, 2 K40's and 1 160T.
Its a complete kit for any experimental filmmaker and the film
alone is very hard to come by.
(I can't take returns on any of my stuff, there are reasons
I am selling all this stuff!!!)
