Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

well I signed up for a colour reversal, not a b/w film, we have orwo in 8mm, so this p30 is just a smokescreen for failing to deliver an e6 emulsion. Not Happy!

Re: Ektachrome returns

''Kodak no longer has a regular-8 perforator of any kind, according to my contact there. We talked about it maybe 6 months ago. I believe they scrapped them when they closed the Windsor, CO facility. I tried to get them to buy Wittner's Buko perforator, but they had no interest'' Bit misleading, in ...

Re: No news from Ferrania is not good.

Kodak 100d, imo only looked ok on dull days, all other times, utter rubbish, skin colours were just terrible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0Z2lA82dtQ 64t footage from 2mins 15 secs...... Captured some time ago, t/k to mini dv via ranks mk3, so quality poor. 64t looks much sharper and more natura...

Re: No news from Ferrania is not good.

[quote], they are up against the benchmark of Ektachrome 100D. Up against a benchmark of Kodak 100d, pretty low standard then, 100d was the worst stock I've ever exposed in a super 8, 8mm and 16mm camera, un natural colours, blown out highlights and unsharp images, a dreadfully over rated stock. Som...

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

just wondering, is this Kodak's clever way of axing the format? Invest in a camera, this fails to boost super 8 film stock sales, thus green light for Kodak to axe super 8? Imo, a reversal film would drive up the super 8 sales an awful lot more than a new camera!

Re: 5 Years Since End of Kodachrome Processing

its hard to get any motivation these days, once you spent 26 years shooting k25/k40 any modern stock is a poor substitute, personally I hated 100d, soft, tended to blow out highlights, jammed in the camera, too over rated imo. Where have those 5 years gone? Seems like yesterday I fedex off the last ...

Re: Regular 8 Vision 3 50D and 250D

Who will be perfing the film? I once ran some 8mm wittner 50d (velvia) through the camera and the QC of the perf was dire.
So I would purchase stock, only if Kodak carry out the perfing.

Re: 16mm Reversal Services

I see on the Agfa site, they say Discontinued I wonder if that includes the 200d as well. Not that I would touch Agfa stock with a barge pole!

Re: Double Super 8 (DS8) situation

Having owned a Canon DS8 and currently a Bolex H8 DS8, the Bolex gives much sharper images with better contrast than the Canon (canon lens, 1960s zoom technology). As for colour stock, nothing at present, previous experience with wittner and gk ds8 50d was poor, very bad registration due to poor qua...

Re: Ferrania is a go!

After a diet of k25 then k40, 100d was a poor product (imo), 100d seems to be too over rated on this forum. The film lacked the bite and sharpness of kodachrome, even kodaks 64t gave a sharper image. I for one certainly don't miss 100d.
