Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Wittner transfered the domainname when it was abandonded. It is a misstatement to think or declare that the content went along. Your friend lost the super8data because he didn't keep a copy on a computer under his control when he abandonded the account of the hosting provider. Wittner is not to bla...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Is that just a matter of putting the batteries in backwards? How do I revert the P2 motor? I guess I'll need to buy a really trashed out one, the only P2 I own has never been used since purchased. Got it last month. Actually I'd need to find a source of bulk S8. I like the stuff from Retro-8 but it...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Apart from abandoning the super8data website the little **** also seems to have deleted his videos. Some contributor. If I remember rightly, super8data didn't have any videos uploaded, just info and pictures. The video of the single-8 recharger machine was made by the man who built it and is not re...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Is this machine something I can buy somewhere, or find plans for, online? I need this in my life! Thanks This machine was made as a unique model. The author is not building this kind of instruments anymore. You can make something similar if you buy a Fujica P2 and adjust the motor to run in backwar...

Re: The return of Ektachrome 100D - CES 2017

Not exactly 100D. They'll be reformulating Ektachrome, so expect -with a bit of luck- a better film stock ;)

Re: Fomopan R100

Our home developer was called ALMA-345, that is a simple five-components formula, a Phenidone-hydroquinone recipe. Would you mind sharing the recipe? Looks quite interesting! (On a private message, if you prefer) Phenidone based developers always gave me inferior results to Metol, so I'm very curio...

Re: how to clean the camera gate of single 8 camera

The only thing I do is to get a lens cleaning cloth and pass it inside the gate several times, pressing the gate with the fingers.
I don't know if there's a better way to do it without removing the gate.

Re: Samples from In My Image 4k scan - down to HD

I'd definitely vote to keep it in 4:3. Not only is that the aspect ratio you filmed in, it will look the best and there is nothing wrong with 4:3 even for filming today. +1 Your film has been shot for 4:3, so 4:3 is the only possible answer. Years ago, widescreen films got visually mutilated with P...

Re: Fomapan redux

So what are the inconsistencies you get between films? Is the film speed a little more or less than the 100 asa it's supposed to be? I've filmed then watched 3 of them so far and have not noticed a difference between them yet. Differences in batches are noticiable if you process the film on a regul...

Re: Fomapan redux

Yes, John. Everybody who have processed this film knows about the problems between different batches.
By the way, Dr5 are just relocating their business in another place.

Re: Fomapan redux

Avortex would this soup also work with Agfa scala 200x film developng ? No, that soup is too weak. Scala, and his new incarnation as Adox Pan-X (or Adox Silvermax in 35mm), is a much harder film to process. You need a very powerful formula or use a silver halide solvent on the first developer. The ...

Re: Hand crank for Fujica ZC 1000

Gabe, you don't need the hand crack to rewind with the Fujica ZC1000. This is the unique model with an external hand crack, but it's conceived to run the camera like in the "silent era" or making long exposures. For rewinding, just put the motor on "R" position and the camera will run in backwards a...
