Re: At a bit of a loss

Hi cinecymru - - - and others, I contacted Gauge Film about this very subject, as they only do Super 8 at the moment. However, Kevin Timmins of Gauge Film is starting 16mm film sales and processing as of this July in both B & W and colour! He's also looking into providing the same service for standa...

Re: At a bit of a loss

Hi, Fancy your remembering those previous posts, - yes, I still have those cameras, as well as the Sankyo Auto 5X for standard 8, and the Krasnogorsk 3 for 16mm. I can't wait to start shooting again! I still have some Fomapan std.8 in my film freezer, and am looking forward to using those up as well...

Re: At a bit of a loss

Simon,

Just to say that I have checked out Gauge Film, and they certainly seem to be the 'bees knees' for Super 8.

Thanks again.

Re: At a bit of a loss

Hi Will2,

Yes, the reason is because I project all my films. I'll certainly give your suggestion some thought - might be a more expensive route, though.

Cheers,

At a bit of a loss

Hi everyone, In my retirement, I am returning to film shooting, but am now unaware of the reversal film available. I have Standard (Regular)8; Super 8 and 16mm cine cameras all in perfect working order, and would like your recommendations for both monochrome reversal and colour reversal film for all...

Re: Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

Not a question of being put off, Jamie, but I would naturally prefer to use the correct type of film - makes sense after all. I can use 100D in my Standard 8 and 16mm cameras anyway, so I do have a 'fall-back' position. Interesting to hear you are a Sussex man! I was born in Southgate, Middlesex - n...

Re: Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

OK. Point taken Jamie.

Think I'll definitely stick with the Wittner as you suggest, or the Cinevia. Nothing beats doing things correctly!

Re: Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

Hi. Thanks for your input 'Muckymuck'.

It's interesting to note about using 100D in bright sunlight - I'll go down that route if I get stuck for Cinevia. Both my Bauers only read the 40 and 160 films.

Cheers,

Re: Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

Small world, Jamie! When my wife and I got married in 1970, our first home was in Roffey!!!! We then moved to Basingstoke in Hampshire for business reasons, but have been back in West Sussex for the last 30 years. Anyway, have been pursuing this Super 8 scenario consistently, and think that my best ...

Re: Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

Hi Jamie, Well! What can I say? What a wealth of knowledge you have. Thank you so much for your explanations - most helpful. I can now go forward once again with renewed enthusiasm. If all else fails, I can revert to my Sankyo Auto 5X for standard 8 (uses any film), and my 16mm Krasnogorsk 3 (again,...

Will my camera shoot 100D ok?

I have a Bauer S 609 XL and an S 409 XL, both of which work extremely well with 64T, Plus-X and Tri-X........with no adjustments whatsoever (I can't understand this either). 8O My question is: will these cameras successfully shoot Ektachrome 100D colour reversal film automatically, without the need ...

Re: Which film to use

Continuing this theme for just a moment longer, I have discovered some Standard 8 filmstock in my film freezer. They are: Cinechrome, requiring K14 processing, Cine-X, requiring D94A processing, and Fomapan R Trouble is, I can't remember if K14 is the same process as Kodachrome was. :?: Therefore I ...
