Which super-8 camera to buy?

Canon, Nizo, Beaulieu, Elmo... What is the best super-8 camera? Well of course the one you have with you! No kidding, it's all about what you do with it and want to film. But of course there are some very good high-end cameras, a lot of decent cameras, and a whole bunch that might be better avoided. I say, definitely avoid the Nizo Integral cameras, I never had a single one that actually worked. If you a nice budget and you don't want to film with an external sound recorder, I recommend a Nizo 481, 561 or 801. Others will choose hoewever a Canon 518 or his bigger brother the 1014XL-S.

First of all: what do you want to do with your camera, film indoors or mainly outdoors? Sport events, fast camera work or will it be on a tripod a lot?

If you want to process your own films, look out for a movie developing tank.
