Re: Scoopic Eyecup

Probably impossible to find original eyecup for scoopic. Buy bolex, arri, beaulieu, etc. eyecup and glue it to the rotating eyepiece.

Re: Is DSLR the terminator for super 8 and 16mm?

We already have digital magazine for Arri SR3 (http://www.pstechnik.de/en/digitalfilm-16sr-magazine.php), but super 8 cameras are usually quite cheap, so there's not much point in digital super 8 cassette. As I've explained, my investment in cameras, lenses, and accessories for Super 8 isn't insign...

Re: Is DSLR the terminator for super 8 and 16mm?

I'm sure it's feasible, but I struggle to see what the hell the point would be??? If I got a DSLR system, besides the camera body, I'd have to buy lenses, a rod support bracket, a matte box, and other paraphernalia to replace my current system. Little of what I have now could be adapted for use wit...

Re: Light Meter

Sekonic L-208 Twinmaster is great, especially when travelling, as it is small, simple and cheap.

Re: Beaulieu R16 battery/power question...pics

Re: How to remove lens from Beaulieu R16 Automatic?

It should come off by just turning it counter clockwise, no buttons.

Re: Ektachrome 100D Colors Look Great!

I have always just tapped and shaked a bit the carts, never any problems. Once I forgot to do that and that has been the only time any cart has jammed (it was ektachrome 64t).

Re: fisheye lens options

For super 8 cameras with interchangeable lenses, there is a 1.9mm fisheye lens available. It was mentioned in "The Book of Movie Photography" - an English publication from the early 80s. I can't remember which company produced this lens but it was a German sounding name that began with a 'K.' I hav...

Did you tap the carts before shooting? Super 8, even with all it's problems is still better than standard 8mm.

Re: Questions about F-Stops

Shanec8mm, if your lightmeter reads f16 behind ND4 filter then correct aperture without the filter is f32. Bakanosaru, ND4 is not same as ND6, but ND4 is the same as ND.6. The so called "cine ND filters" are also in the same scale, they are just named after their optical density: ND.3, ND.6, ND.9, e...

Re: My SF film - UPDATE -

Yes, REALLY impressive. Those spaceships and the cockpit look incredible. But why 8mm and not 16mm? Just for the looks?

Re: RED vs Film (Color Comparison) Youtube)

It is interesting how everytime a new invention comes to replace the older one, people start using the new even though it sucks. RED cameras are technically impressive, all the specs look good on paper, but there's just something missing. People often say that if movie has interesting plot and chara...

Re: Question about ND Filter and UV Filter

UV filters are ok to be used as lens caps, but I would always take it off before shooting. Only the really expensive ones are any worth, and if you have nice lens you really don't need UV filter. Of course photography shops recommend these, because they get more profit from selling filters than the ...
