Kodak Super 8mm movie help

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Mr. Conductor, May 10, 2005.

  1. Last week, while visiting my mother in Connecticut, she gave me an old but
    working Kodak super 8mm movie projector and all of the old films that go
    back to when I was a baby. there were close to 200 4 inch film reels. She
    also gave me a bag of older ones, ones my grandfather had taken, some dating
    back to the early 1920s! Some are even from WW II, when he was a reporter
    for the war effort. We took em home and me, the wife and kids had a great
    time watching all the films. Remarkably, they all are in excellent
    condition, even the older ones. Here is what I need help with:
    In the box of films my mom gave us, there are 16 undeveloped but used
    cartridges of movie film. I took them to a local camera shop and the guy
    there looked at them like they were something from outer space, and told me
    I will never find anyone who can develop them for me. I have a feeling that
    these may be some of the missing footage my dad shot of my wedding back in
    1985 and some movies I shot of friends in high school. I am willing to pay
    whatever the cost to have them developed. Does anyone know where I can send
    them to get them developed? I live in Fulton, New York, which is 38 miles
    north west of Syracuse. I would prefer somewhere local, but if I have to
    mail em out, it is ok. Any help would be appriciated. The cartridges are
    square, black, have a yellow and red kodak label and measure 2 3/4" X 2 3/4
    "and are about an inch thick. I am also looking for an 8 inch take up reel
    and spare bulbs for the projector, which is a Kodak M50 Instamatic super 8
    movie priojector. Parts are hard to find, even on ebay. So if anyone knows
    of a parts place, let me know.

    A year ago ... when researching a similar situation ... I found that there
    are a lot of resources available "on the web."

    However ... the situation with Kodachrome is a bit difficult (at present).
    According to what I've heard, Kodak has quit processing the stock, and the
    only remaining lab(s) are

    415 S. 32nd St.
    (or by mail to P.O. Box 274 )
    Parsons KS 67357 USA

    And a lab in Europe (Swiss, I think)

    Some of the other links I came up with are

    Eventually, you will probably want to transfer these images to video or DVD
    .... keep your eye on eBay ( a Regular-8 TeleCine recently was auctioned for
    roughly $200 ... IIRC), or see
