Fomapan R - Double 8mm Movie Film - 33ft
Foma's specialist B&W movie film: the R range is built to be developed in positive chemicals, so it will be ready for projection straight from the lab! Fine grain, 100-speed, and with excellent gradation for distinguishing shades of grey.
Note: to be used with 'regular' 8mm cameras that take 33ft/10m spool and and not Super 8 cameras. You will need to flip the roll of film halfway through shooting to expose the full length of emulsion.

A very nice double 8 film stock 100 iso make for easy exposers and the film has a very nice contrast with lots of detail and not a lot of grain and of course it a reverse stock so it can be projected wich is alway nice the stills are from a 2k lab scan
There's not much std 8mm film available these days, and most is from small runs hand rolled. This is factory made by those lovely people at Foma Bohemia in the Czech republic. Medium contrast, fine grain and high speed for cine film. I've used this with a simple Russian Quarz M from the 50s and a mid 60s Chinon Master which has power zoom and auto exposure. The film ran smooth in both cameras and produced lovely film. The blacks are not inky black, this is similar in look to the current Kodak Tri-X. Just about usable in bright sunlight, better for overcast days or possibly indoors. Can't beat the price and processing isn't toooo costly either. Also possible to process yourself if you have the correct tank.
Please note my samples are still images from a compressed scan. The film looks better in motion especially on a projector.
I had never shot with 8mm film before and was excited to do so.
I wanted to try and save myself a bit of money and found myself drawn to this film.
Results were absolutely fine.

I was searching for some 8mm stock for my vintage cine camera and came across Analogue Wonderland after doing a quick search online . Have never used them before but would def recommend . Reasonable price and very, very fast turnaround and delivery . Thank you !!
I can’t give you an review of how the film looks because it’s still in my camera waiting to be processed. But it’s exactly what I required for the job
