Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

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...

Re: Beaulieu Service

Bernie is great, especially with any 16mm camera, but if you want your Beaulieu serviced, it really is worth the time and cost of sending it to Bjorn. Me made two of my 4008's better than new. I really mean that. I could tell a major difference in the actual sound of the motor running and the actual...

Re: Best setup for a Super 8 Sync Sound Production in 2018?

If you're talking actual SYNC, there is no currently working system out there for that...like the system Pro8mm invented back in the 70's. BUT, you can manually sync up Super 8 and audio pretty easily these days. Clapper is a great way, or just have someone stand in front of the camera and clap thei...

Re: Canon 814 super8 - Battery Corrosion - doesn't work. Repair $ cost?

I have a couple of those 814 Autozoom cameras. Built like tanks and heavy as one too. Good solid camera but limited on film speed options. it shoots in 24fps. which other speed is it lacking? I'm not gonna be doing any slow-mo shooting I believe it's 12, 24 & 36. Slow motion is fun with film. Beaul...

Re: kodak

The scanner looks like a rebrand of something off allibaba or some chinese manufacturer. Theres an interesting article in the ny times on kodaks bitcoin, they actually are just rebranding someone else's technology. come on kodak, do something original, like your own an super 8/8mm scanner.

Re: Kodak Super8 revival - Media coverage

So the new Kodak camera requires you to manually enter in the film stock using the LCD screen and data wheel?

I guess using the notches would require more mechanical elements than they wanted to deal with. I hope they will keep the notches for all the legacy cameras...I'm sure they will...

Re: 16mm

Guess I've had a couple overachieving ones. Not quote a whole roll but more than 40ft in my experience. Big difference between that one and the Russian K3 that I seemed to be always winding.

Re: Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Movie Reels to Digital MovieMaker

Good to hear from someone who's actually used one and it's basically what I would have expected. Just barely good enough to see what you have maybe but not to actually do much with.

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

So the price is a little tough considering a really good Super 8 camera & lens can be had for $500 or less, BUT...a good DSL can be in the $2500 range pretty easily and considering the work and tech going into it, its not unreasonable. Where they can redeem themselves is on the processing and transf...
