your video standard asks for 29.97 frames per second
your super8s were recorded with ... 18? 15? 20?
The projector (=mechanics!) allows 16.123 to 22.789 frames per second, varying...
ok, let's say, you manage to project with constant 15fps...
your camera will notice a 'hot spot', or vignette: the screen is uneven lit, more bright in the middle....
due to projection and camera electronics, the colors look .... weird?
.... there are lots of services in the Yellow Pages, offering film-transfer

I have used a service called mymovietransfer.com and they did a good job for me.
You can buy telecine machines that will do this, but services like mymovietransfer will have much better equipment.

If your willing to convert manually and you have a DVD recorder you can simply connect your camcorder to your TV and record using your DVD player. This process can be time consuming and when you finish each DVD you must "finialize" on your DVD player menu to be able to play the DVD on another DVD player.

We offer 8mm to DVD transfers at a affordable price. I can help answer any questions you may have about the process.
I may receive some form of compensation, financial or otherwise, from my recommendation or link.
