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: Tripod Talk

I rather like this string idea, might give it a go ! Yes I can see your point about the fact there's no stabilisation as in video cams. On the other hand I kind of like the handheld effect particularly in grabbing closeups of faces and so on. Although definition isn't going to be optimum at 1/30 se...

Re: Tripod Talk

For a compact discrete camera stabilizer filmers could try using the string method. It involves a length of string, (determined by your height and camera), with one end attached to a small metal plate and the other end to a screw that fits the tripod socket. To use this device one stands on the met...

Re: Tripod Talk

I thought it would be good to raise the subject of the use of tripods in films especially to those new to film making. People in the past often related home movies to the shaky images that were shown to friends and family during those memorable, (or otherwise) movie nights. If the audience were luc...

Re: ZC1000 focus isue

thanks Silverdream, I think the prism sounds like the most likely culprit, I've seen other cameras with pull down/shutter sync problems and there tends to be vertical motion blur or strobing effects on the footage nikonr10, I'd describe the focusing on this camera as imprecise. a couple of years ag...

Re: ZC1000 focus isue

I have a ZC1000 that seems incapable of focusing accurately, no matter how much care and attention I take on setting the focus on a subject the film always comes back from the lab showing the focus always significantly behind/further away from what I was aiming at! I'm trying to figure out what mig...

Re: Eumig 8mm projector sprockets?

Hi, After a home-move I find I am with Standard 8 sprockets for my Eumig Mark S 807D projector but the Super 8 sprockets have disappeared. Up the river without a paddle. Are there interchangeable sprockets for this Eumig series please - such as the 800, 802 and 810D Eumigs? If I can't find Super8 s...

Re: Eumig 610D circuitry

Hi all, I just found a really nicely preserved Eumig 610D variable speed projector, unfortunately for me it's the European voltage model. There's a solder point where I can easily set the transformer primary between 220/230/240/250 volts but there doesn't appear to be any 110/120v taps. I was just ...

I'm not even going to touch this other than generally discouraging it.
Just don't severely disable or kill yourself. Wear proper PPE which includes a respirator with the proper filtration.

Re: R9 bleach

I’m using filmlabs r9 bleach recipe. I have all the necessary equipment and I already signed the safety precaution forms to buy the chemicals. Only one question: the sulphuric acid I need to buy has to be 96%, but photographers formulary only sells 48%... does that mean that I double the amount of ...
