Re: Process EM-26

As far as I can tell, EM-26 is very similar (if not identical) to E6 with the addition of a step whereby the remjet (removable jet-black antihalation) layer is removed. This would gunk up a regular E6 processing lab. I've done Ektachrome 160 super 8 in E6 chemistry myself with professional results. ...

Re: Kodak awakens, new S8 camera announced at CES '16

There was a pre-production model preview a few months ago. it is highly unusual for such a product to actually be delivered according to the original timescale. Looking at all the available info (and not rumours/requests) there will be more than one version of the camera. The initial release is hope...

Re: Process times for various B&W 8mm films ???

I should add...I have access to dichromate bleach. Thanks for the link, will have a look later. I am guessing that the Tri-X will need a first development in the same ballpark as 135 negative development of similar stock? I don't know about the Svema material in the "Quarzchrome" cartridge or how to...

Process times for various B&W 8mm films ???

It has been over a decade since I did any reversal film processing. I have a Lomo tank for 8mm and super 8 film. I am still regularly processing still film in 35mm and 120 formats and always have Ilford ID-11, a stop bath and a fixer in the house - currently Tetenal Superfix but sometimes other bran...

Re: The sound of Eumig projector 810 807

I used to own an 820HQS, and there was always some sort of hum or hiss from the loudspeaker when it was running, even with silent film. With the volume turned up you could hear it...and even with a silent film you'd hear "bumps" . With sound film, even if the soundtrack is blank (unrecorded) you sho...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

I definitely hope to purchase some Ferrania P30. I love silver-rich B&W films, I've been using Adox Silvermax and Fomapan 100 a fair bit in 135. The test images from the first hand rolled Ferrania films look beautiful.

Re: New Wittner Webshop (english!)

The site looks good. Easy to navigate, the English is easy to understand and some prices (especially filmstock) are currently reduced.

A round of applause :)

Re: Ektachrome returns

I've seen a message somewhere, probably APUG, where a spokesman for Ferrania wish Kodak the best of luck and reckon that this won't affect Ferrania's plans. As for which I will buy, price will play a big part in that decision. But I am an amateur. I may well end up buying Ferrania super 8 if there's...

Re: kahl film in UK

I am aware that all "distance selling" whether online, by phone or old fashioned mail order....carries a 14 day cooling off period during which the order can be cancelled. I am aware that people can order, then send stuff back. That goes, even if they pay by bank transfer or cheque. I would have tho...

Re: Ektachrome returns

Judging by the graphics on Kodak Alaris' website, and the word going around the still shooting sites.....the smart money is on a 100ISO product for super 8 being reintroduced to offer when the new Kodak camera is made available towards the end of this year. Kodak Alaris (the consumer film arm of EK)...

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

Back then 3D printing was a pipe dream...however I understand that even in 2017 printed gears are often not accurate enough. I didn't take the camera apart as the consensus on this forum was that it wasn't worthwhile. I had paid peanuts for the camera, got a couple of decent films out of it, and had...

Fantastic news. Really fantastic.

I'm sure it will come at a price, but this is excellent news....even if the details are sketchy.

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

With a silent cartridge, the capstan won't run but the main drive and claw should. HOWEVER....there is an issue with these Ektasound cameras. I used to own one around 17 years ago. It ran for a couple of films and then stopped, there i a nylon or plastic gear which really doesn't last. And once it b...

Re: kahl film in UK

Egglab appears to be a creative consultancy, with no reference to film or Kahl on their site. I wonder if it's a typo on Kahl's site? I did once buy from Kahl years ago, by bank draft I think. I bought some 50ASA daylight colour reversal super 8 film from them which was pretty good. But the process ...

Re: Any of you guys have your own water distiller?

Whether it is worth it depends on if your water usage is metered and how much your electricity costs...and your own views on usage of resources.

My personal view is that it's not worth it unless you're using industrial or educational quantities of distilled water.
