Just ordered 5 rolls, I’m back in Super 8!
Me too. Nice to have an online order system working. It's nice to talk the kind Kodak ladies when ordering but kind of a slow process.

Re: The Future of Film

Interesting take on film use skipping a generation...seems reasonable. Unfortunately a lot of knowledge in the industry may have been lost because of the "digital or bust" attitude. He doesn't mention how much of the move to digital was pushed by long time industry veterans that were looking for dig...

Re: New Universal 2K upgrade review

PS: For some reason, he says that the 16mm gate has audio. I dunno why he said that since it doesn't. Anyway, a nice review. He says it does 16mm "optical" which in theory it probably does...you'd just need to run a separate program to convert the scanned "audio" to actual sound, right? Like Tommy'...

Re: Any tutorial on how to capture color negative with RetroScan-HD Universal?

Sounds like something Roger could do. There's a YouTube video on how to do everything else, there should be one for the RetroScan. Much easier than reading manuals. :)

On the contrary, I don't miss sound cartridges at all. Having sound striped on film is so 1970s. ;) Much better to use an external digital recorder today.
I miss them for how terribly bad they sounded. It was like a telephone recording. Uniquely horrendous.

Maybe I'll have a go at making a new gear. Wonder if anyone has had success with moulding a fine tooth gear?
This Canon camera is way to complicatedly (big word here) designed! These bloody engineers should stick to drawing rockets!
Seems like that might be a good project for a 3D printer...

My Kodak rep is looking into it.
I love that.
I makes me sound important. :)

He was as curious as me on this one though. I would expect it to be a $5,000 minimum or so. That's a lot of Double Super 8.

Re: The State of Double Super 8

My Kodak rep is looking into it. If the Super 8 manufacturing process is as described it will just boil down to how much they want to sell to overcome the "inconvenience factor" of pulling it early from the process and spooling down to 100' loads.

Re: The State of Double Super 8

Good to know they at least Spectra can split it...that was my main concern. For a laugh I'll check with my Kodak rep and see what they would need for a special order or if they even have the machines to perf that. Would be nice to have some 50D negative or the Ektachrome when it comes out. Any DS8 u...

The State of Double Super 8

I've seen Fomapan R100 B&W available in 100' rolls of Double Super 8, are there currently any other fresh stocks available?

Also, who is processing that stock in North America?

Hoping it's not completely dead yet...thanks for any insight!

They're missing a window here for summer...that's the best time for reversal film sales. Bet we're at least 9 months away still.

Re: Where can you buy positive 16mm color film?

16mm Ektachrome 100D is an amazing film, especially seen as it was meant too be...projected.

I still love Kodachrome more for it's "pastel-like" un-natural color and longevity, but Ektachrome is beautiful, sharp and has extremely accurate color rendition. Can't wait for the re-release.

Re: Tripod Talk

Biggest and heaviest comment was really for 16 and 35mm. Super 8 can do fine on a light weight tripod but you may need to invest in a remote shutter trigger so you don't have to touch the camera.

Re: Tripod Talk

Biggest and heaviest tripod you can find. Makes all the difference in the world. Although, Super 8 Footage is almost synonymous with crazy handheld camera movements...it's kinda what you expect and part of the charm. I've found that handing off cameras to kids to shoot events is great when coupled w...
