Re: Re:

I do remember this thread. For those who followed it step by step, it was quite informative. Of course, I never wrote the summary :D I agree with you, for someone reading the thread as a whole, it looks like a jumble. I'll get back with you on your questions tomorrow. I'll write a summary this eveni...

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

Let's hope it is a regular standard C-mount with 17.526mm flange focal distance. oh, it undoubtedly will be a standard C-mount. creating a new form of C-mount lens would mean that only the two lenses they sell with the camera could be implemented, and their goal is to create a versatile unit. Their...

Re: Bolex H16 RX Light metering

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL I just love these conversations. I have always thought the f-stops on the RX lenses were actual f-stops not T-stops. One reason is that lenses from the same time period were marked as T-stops when the need arose. Like those of Taylor, Taylor and Hobson. So, I did not think Bolex on a...

Re: Bolex H16 RX Light metering

If it is of any help at all - Bolex has an exposure incident-reflective light meter which was made by Gossen for Bolex Reflex cameras. The Bolex manual specifically states: When using this light meter with Non-Reflex H8 and H16 cameras, adjust the ASA setting on the light meter by a factor of 1.3. F...

Re: New upload on Vimeo re: UP8 2.8 R8 Vision 3 50D color ne

This is my expectation. Ok. Remember the one with the woman and the crystal ball. I believe that was a B&W clip. My mistake. Compare the faces in both clips. The face looks sharper in the B&W clip. More definition to it. Hi Lunar, I disagree regarding the graininess and I believe it is a superior em...

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Why do you feel so? On the contrary I think it is time to remove the dust off many Super8 cameras. With negative Vision3 line of 200T and 50D all 40/160 cameras can be used now. Add to it 500T (which should be metered manually anyway if used at night) and we have a full line of stock. As for B&W, th...

Re: New upload on Vimeo re: UP8 2.8 R8 Vision 3 50D color ne

Why does it look grainy? Clips you uploaded before with Ektachrome 100D looked sharper. Am I imagining things? :) Also, what is this yellowish orangy vertical line that appears to the left? I have decided to upload a short test film in light of Kodak's two major announcements today regarding its dis...

Re: Kodak introduces Vision3 50D color negative in Super 8

The funny and nice and great thing is that this will resurrect and give new life to 40/160 Super8 cameras.
I like that.

Re: Announcing the new UltraPan8 Facebook web page

No, I wasn't referring to the focal length as such, but the discussion that took place around the use of mounts other than C mount, eg. bayonet mounts, ie. the argument that depicting such mounts was not a good path to the world domination of UltraPan8. Bayonet mounts are fine but my opinion was th...

Re: Announcing the new UltraPan8 Facebook web page

Only C-mount cameras are modded into UltraPan8. An H8-RX with its special C-mount OR an H16-RX with its C-mount. The final result of an UltraPan8 is a camera that uses 16mm RX lenses. So, no, they can not specify what mount they require. There is only one mount, so far, for an UltraPan8: C-Mount fo...

Re: Announcing the new UltraPan8 Facebook web page

Bolex 8mm cameras (C8, B8 etc.... and H8) use a D-mount. Except for the Bolex H8-RX which uses a special C-mount that is incompatible with other C-mounts. I told you that couple of times. But it takes someone else to convince you ;) 16mm RX format lenses in the focal length range of 8mm format lense...

I told you that couple of times. But it takes someone else to convince you ;) 16mm RX format lenses in the focal length range of 8mm format lenses. I even wrote the list. So I do not understand how you did not realize that. Hi Carl, Thanks for your draft Ultrapan8 page. If I may make a suggestion: I...
