Super 8 is caged in cassettes - Double Super 8 films are 16mm wide and are not packaged in cassettes but on 10m spools. The films run through the camera twice - as known from the standard 8-based double 8 - and is then cut lengthwise in the middle after film development and thus separated into two film strips of Super 8 format.
Of course you can also run the film more often through the camera and get double or multiple exposures!
Double 8 and Double Super 8 films are still freshly made by the Czech company FOMA.
I have different cameras which we can test and film with! You can take one home on Saturday ... on Sunday we will develop all the films together!
CAFFENOL consists of instant coffee, vitamin C powder and washing soda. All three you can easily buy at at Aldi, Lidl, Rossmann etc. Better buy the cheapest coffees, it's all about the caffeic acid in it: bad for the stomach, essential for developing! The soup can be flushed into the toilet after one-time use.
Coffee contains phenols, the small sisters of Hydrochinone, the main ingredient of many black-and-white developers.
Phenols are found in various plants and foods: coffee, tea, red wine, potatoes, black currant, mushrooms, vanilla, whiskey, tree bark, various flower blossoms ...
