Back in October when I visited New York City in addition to a plethora of still photography cameras I also took along a super 8 camera, and while in NYC picked up two cartridges of Super8 film, Kodak E100D, and shot them around the city. Once again the footage was out of focus, which I soon found out was due to the camera not my operation of it. Which is a good thing over all. Again I’m rather pleased with how it all turned out.
Now the camera, it sadly lost it’s life after getting hit by a subway (after I had pulled the second cartridge out) so it won’t be bothering me anymore and I’ve already replaced it with a much nicer unit, again a Eumig, a 300/XL with a big bright split screen focus viewfinder. I also picked up the last two caridges of E100D (as Kodak has discontinued this line) from West Camera and plan on shooting it again this summer (maybe Chicago?). I am also looking forward to working with Kodak’s new Super8 stock the Vision3 50T!
A city this big cannot be covered in just one week, so I gave it two. Also because I did not actually have a post ready for Week 41 since I was still in the US and did not have the film for that week processed, I probably could have done it, but I don’t know any labs in NY/NJ that could do it for me, so I waited until I got back to Canada. I went through so much film over the course of my time down there, most of which has yet to be scanned, so I worked hard to get at least these photos scanned and uploaded just for you my faithful followers!
Less than ten weeks left in the project, and the book is already starting to take shape. (By shape, I mean I have an idea of how I want it to work, just have to make that a reality.)
