Re: Canon Autozoom 814 electronic not working?

Yes, the battery cover is necessary to complete the electrical connection between the batteries.

Re: Regular 8mm Black & White Print

I have had self slit film jamming in some of my projectors before which I finally put down to the film slitter I was using, the same as what you have in the video. I measured and compared some of my self slit film and it turned out the variations in width were intolerable, up to 0.75 mm difference i...

Re: Who's Left Shooting 16mm?

I am using S8, R8, DS8 and 16mm, a few reels per year. My 16mm cameras are a Krasnogorsk 3, a Bell & Howell 240 and a Victor III with a Dallmeyer f2.9 lens from 1933 and it still works well with 2R film. The Bell & Howell is the lightest and easiest to use with a long run time. Alongside its f1.9 20...

Re: UN54 R8 developing tips wanted

I use Amaloco 6006 paper developer 1+4, it is the same as Kodak's multigrade paper developer.
First development 12 minutes and second development 6 minutes using the first developer again.

Re: Home scanning

Yes, on feeling the beginning of the film it is definitely warped a little bit. Something must have happened as you say. I am using a 7watt led behind a piece of milk glass for illumination mounted in a holder that imitates the shape of a normal modern projector lamp. I can also use it in my 16mm pr...

Re: Home scanning

Yes, it looks the same on the screen when projected at normal speed. I have a nice Eumig P8 projector just for regular 8mm films.
The main difference I see in the scan is slightly blown out highlights. I scan with the "intelligent contrast control" on the video camera to try and compensate a bit.

Re: Home scanning

Interesting idea. The film is on a 200ft spool with a 50mm. diameter core.
I'll have to see if I have any larger core spools tomorrow.
Next week on vimeo, I'll put up another scan of a film that is in a better condition, just to compare.

Re: Home scanning

No, I believe the focus affect is from the original, I lock the video camera focus on manual after focusing and the film gate is good. I set the film in the gate by hand, not by automatic feed.

Home scanning

This is my first upload to Vimeo https://vimeo.com/192605934 . I scan with a HD video camera with a reversed 60mm Componon enlarging lens attached, hung upside down filming directly from the film gate of a stripped down Eumig R2000 table projector. I run the projector at 3 fps., camera set to 1080p ...

Re: New FILM9 software fails

My curiosity awakened, I tried to start up my Film9 2.01 and it asked me (in French) if I would like to update to Film9 2.02. I had no problem with the new install. I am running windows 8.1.

Re: Quarz 1x8S-2, No aperture indicator

I also have a Quarz 1x8S-2 and yes, the apertures are indicated in the viewfinder. I am sorry but I have no idea what can be wrong with your camera. I have bought several Russian cameras in the past, Fed, Quarz, Kiev, Krasnogorsk, Horizon, Zenit etc. and most were very good to excellent. A couple di...
