New Super 8 film "Gitpu"

The title of my new Super 8 film "Gitpu" is Mi'kmaq for eagle.

My cousin Lorne's spiritual connection with nature did not prepare me for his passing, i.e.

Is Kodachrome still processed ANYWHERE in the world?

Gave up? Where have you been? It was no longer manufactured nor supported by Kodak. Very complex large expensive industrial process. Dwayne had no choice in the matter.

Re: Paul Cotto-Film Slicer

I appreciate the update. Pro perf machines are substantial heavy beasts. I have a hazy recollection his prototype was light weight.

A custom and heavy battery was temporarily built as per the cam power specs, 30v and 30a peak available if necessary. The cam drew approx 12-15 amp...
