Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Traditionally reversal film has been more expensive than negative film. Negative film is a simpler film. Reversal film is effectively a negative and positive film layered on top of each other. Although Tri-X is a reversal film being black and white means it only has 2 active layers compared to nega...

Re: Gauge Film - times slots?

What a millennial bureaucrat. What could possibly be the problem to process film when they come in when the chemistry is still good? Or are we to believe that all is done in one day after the deadline?

Re: The State of Double Super 8

Dennis Toeppen placed a special order with Kodak for unperforated 16mm V3 and Tri-X in 2015. At that time a minimum order was about $28000. He posted several times regarding the subject. He had the unperforated film perforated and packaged by Wittner. He was selling 25ft for about $45.00 That was t...

Re: Yet another DIY film scanner project (again.)

What software do you use to cut the frames from the exposed image and how do you bring these into one playable file?

Re: The State of Double Super 8

It is new. Its state of maintenance cannot be determined from the photo :)

Do they still use it as it all has been simplified and the product range has been thinned out?

Re: Beaulieu Service

The 7008 pro II is a modified camera from Pro8mm. It didn't come from Beaulieu like that.
Unfortunately pro8mm is known for its pro pricing :)

Aren't the Foma kits 6x300ml?

To test what the minimum quantity is, just pour in water until the reel is completely under. Drain it and measure it.

The same for two spirals in one go.
8x300ml :)

Re: Where can you buy positive 16mm color film?

Where is Ferrania? I sent several $100 as kickstarter. No news in several months. Very quiet! I doubt color reversal will be forth coming. Kodak has been promising color reversal for several years. The latest was color in early summer. Well summer is just around the corner and no sign of color Ekta...

Re: sony wmd6c Gebuhrmultisyn

Oh, really, it costs so much! It must be a great quality! I use a Philips cassette recorder (I also like sound of audiocassette) connected to the Fujica ZC1000 with the cable that produced the Fuji itself. The recorder starts and stops with the release button of the camera, but the lip sync is a di...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

If Charles still has the original files he could just share them with filmshooting or filmkorn who likely will host it for the love of it. How difficult could it be to have the files put on a USB stick or to have them uploaded to dropbox or something :) Rather than have other people spend their time...

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...

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.
