There is a discussion going on in another forum regarding the image quality of the two gauges, and I would agree from what few home movies I have seen, that Standard 8 was superior to Super 8. Someone said that maybe this was down to the lenses, as Standard 8 cameras never had a zoom lens. On a visit to York in 1975 I picked up a Standard 8 camera for £11. I don't remember the name, it was very heavy and had a zoom lens of no more than 3x magnification. I bought it so that I could try my hand at single shot trickery. The camera had a fault, if it was wound up too much the single shot facility slipped resulting in several frames being taken. I only shot the one roll and either sold it or gave it away some years later. I remember thinking the colour rendition was better too, maybe the inbuilt orange filter was of a different shade.
