I recently was lucky enough to score a super8 camera from Freecycle. There's no way I'm going to have a chance to try it out before leaving for my summer project, but if for some reason any of you have some time up your sleeve and would like to play around with it I'd be more than happy to lend it. Feel a bit guilty having it sitting around unused.
Came with a mic and manual (and lovely plush royal blue-lined case, yummy!), apparently hasn't been used since the 1980s but worked fine then...Just let me know if you fancy camera-sitting.
