Digital cameras, gimbals and drones have changed mountain-bike videos forever. But it all started with film. The distinct pre-digital look, the limited amount of storage—don’t miss that shot!—and the attention to detail from the trail to the editing room. Super 8 film was one of the first steps in bringing video-making capabilities to the masses. Before that there was 16-millimeter film that had to be threaded into the camera with care. The Super 8 came in a cartridge ready to go. Put it in the camera and record. Give the power to the people. The digital revolution might have made processing faster and easier than ever, but the Super 8 was first. And clearly, it can still produce quality shred edits.
