I was sent this link by a friend in Australia, it concerns an Italian immigrant who filmed his new home in Standard 8, so he could show his mother back in Italy. He lived in Darwin, and in 1974, the city was hit by a cyclone and changed forever. After his death his son got out the films and projector and decided to make digital copies. His films created a lot of interest, and copies will now be going into the National Archives in Australia. The quality of the standard 8 is much better than I obtained with two Super 8 cameras.
