Regular 8 vs Super 8

Another thing about Super 8, of course, is that the pressure plate is built into the cartridge and is plastic. With a quality Regular 8 camera and decent lenses you can get a sharper image (I haven't tried those insertable metal Super 8 plate doohickeys, or professional Super 8 cameras). The smaller size doesn't matter all that much if you are transferring to video.

Super 8 has a much wider variety of film stocks available right now, though.
