I am intrigued how they stick the magnetic strip evenly to the film. Obviously, it's a machine but how do they actually stick it on and it stays on. Technically you can cut your own tape at the right width but attaching it to the film is the tricky bit. Also getting the right bias tape to match your recording heads to get the best sound is time consuming as old sound camera's have limited adjustment on their circuits. There seems to be a renewed interest in 8mm striped film.

I will have to dig out some of my old camera's and see if there is any life in them. BTW just bought a batch of BH 200EE 16mm camera's as there is a market for this type with the new 'wave' of interest coming from film students who are looking for this type of camera. Problem is they use a 16mm film magazine which Kodak no longer produce. They have to be converted to S16mm!!! Hmmm. Could be more trouble than they are worth. But no pain, no gain.
