Re: Posted Some New BW & C (2011) S8 Clips On The Tube

Have a look at this one ( http://vimeo.com/7812803 ) - it has scraps of original footage.

Re: How could I possibly be outbid on eBay?

Yes, I go to the local bric-a-brac auction quite regularly. There are amazing bargains, but usually all mixed up with rubbish. Rubbish to one being prized object to another. This week there's a boxed Pathescope 9.5mm projector, with a Ferguson radio, lot 162. I'm after the two boxes of soldier's des...

Re: How could I possibly be outbid on eBay?

Sniping software stinks - it really does - and is against the spirit of a free and fair auction sale. In my opinion. It's not difficult to tell that someone has used it, on one of your sales, as the winning bid has been made only two or three seconds before the item closes. It's always courtesy to c...

Thank you - I have exactly the same stock (albeit in short ends).

Re: Timelapse Paris at night

Crossing the Seine at dawn, with a fixed exposure, is clever. It could be copied with the Tyne, over the Redheugh Bridge, and it might even look better. The trolley would need to be a mobility scotter, for authenticity and camouflage.

Re: Moviscop 16 or 8mm editing viewer?

Yes, they made both gauges and they are separate and different. The 8mm one goes for about fifteen quid, on eBay, while the 16mm goes for maybe thirty - more sometimes if they're in superb condition. They share a varnished baseplate, and winders, and the wood is drilled with different screwholes for...

Re: Eumig P8 Power Cable/ Chord

I scrapped a Eumig P8 recently and will list the lens, together with the power lead, on eBay in a week's time, for ten days. It'll not be expensive and you can plug into my ebay stuff now by searching for a 'vintage eumig spool'. I doubt there'll be two on there ...

Re: Light Meter

On this meter just put a dot of nail varnish or a tiny triangle of masking tape on the top ring, where 1/50 sec should be. That'll get you started at least, if you're filming at 24fps. It's a good meter but keep an eye on the voltage coming from the battery. As it runs down it tends to ever-expose, ...

Re: Reminder: Dec 30 Last Day for Kodachrome process

I got my dispatch email yesterday. Now it look as if I'm not the very last, but almost the last, to have my 8mm Kodachrome processed at Dwayne's. Which is fitting, perhaps, as I exclusively shot on Kodachrome (except for a couple of spools of VNF about five years ago). I'm going to migrate to 16mm a...

Re: Reminder: Dec 30 Last Day for Kodachrome process

I'm still in hiatus. I paid the PayPal request on the 17th January but never got the usual dispatch email. An enquiry through Dwayne's website javascript form hasn't produced a response. Will just wait and see a little longer.

Re: H16 rack over?

If you gently warm both the camera and the oilcan - say to about 20C - then the oil will run further into the mechanism - all things being equal. That octameter also comes apart with just four (I think) setscrews holding it together. The inside of the glass on both ends tends to have become 'clarted...
