As you may have noticed this site has undergone some rebuilds. Besides the URL change to www.super8aid.net (update your bookmarks!) it is now Typo3-powered and some of the advantages of a Content Management System will be introduced in the months ahead. I thought about adding a Forum for hardware and technical discussions, Polls and a Mailinglist for announcing changes and additions. The manuals will soon be available again.

Let me know if you have any suggestions, articles, manuals or comments. For spam reduction and for easier identification of mailings concerning this site I am using a new eMail adress: anvalin[at]super8aid.net. Please use this adress for your future mailings.

home : disclaimer

As this non-commercial site features scans of original manuals I'd like to drop a line about copyright here: I do respect the rights of the manufacturer of the devices and the publishers of the manuals. If you are the copyright owner of the manuals I am providing online for free and wish I cease and desist please contact me and I'll no longer offer your specific manual for download. But be aware that the online publishing of these manuals help the community of Super 8 fans worldwide to maintain the functionality of their cameras, projectors, splicers, viewers and other gear since many of the rare devices that are available nowadays are purchased on a more or less private market and often come without the leaflets originally provided with them. Anyway, If you unlike or like the idea of having the documentation of your high-quality cinematic products offered for free, please notify me via eMail.
