“The first new Super 8, expected to arrive in a limited-edition version in the fall of 2016, was conceived with help from the industrial designer Yves Behar. It is likely to cost between $400 to $750, Mr. Clarke estimated. Processing the film should cost $50 to $75 a cartridge, he said. Mr. Clarke expects in 2017 a lower-cost version aimed at a broader audience.”
I do know that the Super 16 format is still alive as well. Bolex still makes the cameras but at a higher price. I was lucky to find a used one on eBay for the price of FCP X, in very good condition. Now if only that film scanner was not expensive that would be great.
I just wonder if the Super 8 movie, not seen it yet, had anything to do with this resurgence. Who knows, maybe 8 Track will be brought back to life. Stranger things have happened.
