The return of the small format magazine - in a modern way
The Super 8 Web Portal is intended to bring together current filmmakers and newcomers, to present both old and new film projects and to offer a massive online archive of more than 1,000 curated small format films. Active filmmakers and gear collectors alike will find the information they need, with the world’s largest online archive of 3,900 cameras and 3,500 projectors. We just started a crowdfunding campaign to realize this idea: https://www.kickstar...er-8-web-portal

Film9 is a powerful application for "restoring" computer video footage that has been transferred from film, typically Super8, but any film type can be restored with Film9. There is an English version, and tutorials about how to use the program. Visit the link below, and download the Film9 zip file.
There is a lot of information about how to use the program, and although much is in French, simply use Bing translator to read the pages.
