If you really want to split hairs and nitpick at the most exotic 8mm
format get yourself a Single-8 camera... A similar shooting format to
a std-8 camera with a "real" pressure plate and some stocks similar to
that sacred unnamed emulsion and after soup a super-8 post path.....
no quadrants in 16mm though ;-(
