Yes, but the obscure Double Super 8 format (which Kodak ceased making 
film for a few years back, I think) would require a 16mm-wide sprocket 
with Super-8 teeth, and that's not going to be an easy thing to locate.  
Not hard to make (call LaVezzi) but I can't imagine that anyone would do 
this for one client with an unstable supply of rawstock.

DS8 is pretty dead!
