You indeed
purchased a Regular 8 (R8) camera. As you probably now realize, it takes 16mm
film with sprocket holes specific for use in 8mm cameras. You shoot the roll of
25ft film which exposes half the frame, turn the film over and shoot another
25ft. After processing the film is split and spliced
Although I
haven't tried this, I'm told you can still project this film with a standard
16mm projector if you don't have it split after processing. You would basically
see two frames simultaneously on the screen which may be of interest to you as a
technique. Keep in mind that one frame would be right side up, while the other
would be upside down due to the way the film goes through the camera. If you
want both frames right side up you would have to shoot the last 25ft with the
camera upside down.
If you didn't
pay much for the camera and it works you might want to keep it or this

Hello everyone,

I kinda of screwed up when
  i bought this camera, Quarz 2x8S-1M FILM MOVIE CAMERA.

Quarz 2x8S-1M
The camera and it's zoom lens was manufactured at
  KRASNOGORSK factory in Moscow, USSR.

 Technical data
  Type: movie film, film type: standard 16mm film, frame size: 4x5.5mm, 12, 18,
  24, 36 frames/sec preset, internal light meter, single frame shooting, spring
  drive motor, intershangeable lenses.

Lens: Jupiter-24M

Let me say first that i know nothing about 16mm camera's and
  was super excited to find this one which seemed quite compact and a good
  reasonable price. i purchased it from from ebay. before purchasing it did show
  it to a friend who knows about camera's and he too assumed it was 16mm but its
  NOT!! it takes 16mm but its actually an 8mm?!?! goddess help me!
  anyone know if it takes any kind of 16mm film??

i feel like an idiot
i have not received it and i did speak with the seller about this
the ad was a bit misleading but ultimately it was my fault. so know
  i have a camera that i did not want??



  How fun is this? IMing
  with Windows Live Messenger just got better.
