Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

This machine was made as a unique model. The author is not building this kind of instruments anymore. You can make something similar if you buy a Fujica P2 and adjust the motor to run in backwards . It's really a great help when recharging Single-8 cartridges :) Is that just a matter of putting the...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Apart from abandoning the super8data website the little **** also seems to have deleted his videos. Some contributor. If I remember rightly, super8data didn't have any videos uploaded, just info and pictures. The video of the single-8 recharger machine was made by the man who built it and is not re...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

It was nothing. Just a board with a few pins to hold reels. For winding a Fuji single-8 was used :) Just held onto the board and the cartridge in, film was fed in with the door open. Apart from abandoning the super8data website the little **** also seems to have deleted his videos. Some contributor.

Re: Fomapan DS8mm 100ft rolls USA

ONe would assume that any factory would glad to supply film by the pallet-load. Was it only the paperwork or is this air-lifting the troublemaker? I.e it might work better if things were shipped per sea-container. Spending a few months on transfertime would be that bad when there is a steady flow.

Re: Another Pass the cart project?

It were better mentioned in the generic forum. These theme fora get very little attention. One might wonder how many real S8 filmers still keep track of the forum here. I didn't participate in the original projects. I noticed in the reports there were many sloppy/lazy bum participants who took forev...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

I never used BW from Ferrania. Old dudes who did use it never seem to cease on this silverrich BW material. Elsewhere this rich emulsion is a de-luxe edition. See what it looks like. It gives Ferrania an opportunity to operate the machines and gain hours in experience while making some money hopeful...

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

I'm thinking about getting one once I learn how to cut my own gears. Cut or print? There is a firm here who has specialised on 3D printing gears for ciné equipment :) Of course fixing your own is far more educational but when in a hurry... Oh yeah, who's that? Been trying to find pictures of a d...

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

Super-8 Sound cameras can take and run silent cartridges without trouble. The recoding head and capstan-drive are then uncovered and unused. No trouble there. The capstan doesn't rotate to save on the batteries. There are no sound cartridges avaible for some 25 years. :( Only expired ones which coul...

Re: kahl film in UK

For some reason Kalhl doesn't favour selling outside Germany.

Enquiry with http://www.egglab.co.uk/contact/ doesn't bring anything?

Seems like a creative company who might possibly have taken up a side-business of reselling film.
It is odd to keep it secret though :)
