Hi all, thanks for the responses (makes me feel somewhat better, knowing my camera isn't at fault). I myself cannot advance the film by hand and the motor of my camera started making a whirrrrrrrrrr..... ing sound so I quickly turned it off whilst mid film. Its not good though, my Nizo motor didn't enjoy it at all. Expensive and risky really. Especially when these cameras are 150 +, and the stock isn't cheap either. Surely this kind of stuff shouldn't happen?

I have a Nizo, a few years ago I took a roll of 5285 (35mm) and had Pro8mm cut it down, yielded I think 17 s8 rolls. This was before kodak released the s8 stock. About 50% of the rolls got so tight the cartridge couldn't even be advanced by hand. This was unfortunate because I lost maybe 20-25% on average for these rolls, plus there would be scratch because of tension. Haven't figured out why, would like to - but I don't think it would have anything to do with the Nizo, do you?

By the way, Phil V and the whole crew at Pro8 were great about it. We had several discussions about the why & Phil went so far as to offer processing help and a free roll - I didn't ask at all, he offered, so I think this was A+ on Phil's part and have much respect for Pro 8 as a result.

I'm curious to hear if any other Nizo's have this
 relationship kink with this fine looking stock.

Has any one had problems with this new film stock? My Nizo has trouble pulling the film through. However it seems to pull older film through without a problem?
ThanksKevin
