Re: processing labs in UK

Until almost 12 months ago I used to have all of my 16mm B&W Negative film (7222) processed and printed at NO.W.HERE in East London, but they decided not to continue to undertake this work as a service. I understand that attempts were made to establish a group of users as a "cooperative" and I tried...

Re: 3d printed anamorphic bolex mount pics

This is an excellent anamorphic lens mount, the best I have seen for Bolex H type cameras. Can you inform me whether, and if so how it might be possible to purchase such a mount, but one which will take a Sankor 16D lens? This lens is larger than the Proskar lens shown in your pictures, I believe, i...

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Here is a test roll -- captured off the wall with my iPhone, so not great quality. So much better in projection. :) https://vimeo.com/61079295 All I can say is that notwithstanding the constraints you mention, it is excellent! I should imagine that the stock shot in daylight will be exactly what we...

Re: Kodak Negative Film

I dailes in West London have started processing negative Super 8. I've spoken to their general manager, John Thadcross (haven't tried them out yet) and he told me that they have only been processing Super 8 for a month having recently completed the modifications to their equipment but the Super 8 g...

Re: Tasma 16mm film

I am not sure whether this helps, but when looking into the possibility of trying Tasma 16mm film, I came across the following English language web page: http://tasma.ru/en/products/22. It seems that 16mm film is double perforated and so can be used in both older and newer cameras. It is not on dayl...

Re: Nizo Professional and Ektachrome 100D

I have a Nizo 561, but I believe that the exposure control system is common to the "Professional" and the "800" range of cameras. My understanding is that Ektachrome 100 cartridges supplied by Kodak are intended to automatically move the 85 filter out of the way. That being so you should leave the c...

Re: Self-processing B/W

Eastman Kodak 7222 is not a reversal stock. It is a negative stock - 250ASA (daylight) or 200ASA (Tungsten light). I use it in its 16mm form and quite like it. It produces fairly contrasty and grainy images. I think Kodak Tri-X (7266)(200ASA, daylight) is the reversal B & W stock available from Koda...

Re: arri 16 sb viewfinder problem

Matt. It does seem that it might be the lens positioning in the turret sockets which is out. Living in London, you are quite fortunate. Call Simon Challenor at http://www.moviecamerasupport.com. He is a very nice guy and an expert in Arri servicing, and he is based in West London within the M25. I a...

Re: arri 16 sb viewfinder problem

Not all Arri16S/B cameras have frame lines on the ground glass. I have a quite late S/B and there are no markings on the ground glass at all, not even a centre cross. What I see when I look through the viewfinder is the picture area with no frame lines. So it may well be the case that your particula...

Re: Digital Bolex

It is such a strange world in which we live, it seems to me. We have those who make and/or use video cameras who seek to emulate the qualities of film, and now we have those who wish to manufacture a video camera which resembles a film camera. Life could be easier for them if they just bought and us...

Re: Kodak

I too am not convinced that there is a crisis, though I am sure that we would all agree that the sooner it becomes clear that the future of Kodak is secure, the better. In the present world economic situation, share values are in very stormy waters and many have fallen by very considerable amounts. ...

Re: Ektachrome 100D help!

The Nizo 561, and I believe the 481, detects that the Ektachrome 100D cartridge does not have a filter notch and so removes the internal 85 filter automatically. If the exposure switch on the camera is set to "daylight", the camera will then read the film speed notching on the cartridge as 100ASA. T...

Re: Ektachrome 100D help!

I have a Nizo 561 Macro, but I suspect that there is no material difference on the exposure control system. There is some information on the web which suggests that when using daylight film one should set the exposure control to "tungsten" in order to remove the internal 85 filter. However, this is ...

Re: When was the last time you shot real movie film?

I shot some Fuji Eterna 250D (16mm) last week, and before that some Ektachrome 100D (also 16mm) within the last month. I used my Bolex SBM.
