Understanding Super 8 Film Types

There are only a few film types for a super-8 camera and if you are using film, you do have to be cautious with your settings and lighting. 

Indoor Films

Choose from options such as 200T or 500T for capturing warm, indoor lighting. These films provide versatility and richness in color, perfect for intimate moments indoors.

Outdoor Films

Opt for 50D or 250D for outdoor settings, offering crispness and clarity in natural light. These films beautifully capture the vibrancy of outdoor scenes, adding depth and dimension to your footage.


250 is warmer in the colors, outside/inside usage  
200T is slightly blue outside and indoors, most versatile 
500T is inside only aka dancing indoors for a low-light evening setting

The “D” stands for Daylight 

Since these cameras don’t have a white balance, the D is the white balance. 

3 Tips for Incorporating Super-8 Film into Your Day

ONE | Communication is Key

Coordinate with your photographer/videographer to outline must-have moments for Super-8 coverage. Discuss your vision and preferences to ensure a seamless integration of film into your wedding day.

TWO | Consider a Second Photographer

If budget allows, enlist a second photographer to assist with Super-8 filming. This ensures comprehensive coverage of both photos and film, capturing every aspect of your special day.

THREE | Music Selection

Collaborate with your videographer to choose the perfect soundtrack for your highlight film. Whether you prefer a romantic ballad or an upbeat melody, the right music enhances the emotional impact of your footage.

Incorporating Super-8 Highlight Film into your wedding day elevates your memories to a cinematic level, preserving the essence of your love story timelessly and nostalgically.
