Super-8 is a medium that was intended for reversal film. Color negative in S8
is usually quite ugly, and you probably could shoot 16mm for not much more
money, with better results. Underexposed S8 color negative can be truly
hideous, even when scanned on a great film scanner.
However, Tri-X reversal still exists, and can be quite beautiful. Consider B&W
-- it's cheaper and looks better.
