Re: Latest announcement from Wittner

Things from Kodak will indeed likely always be perforated. Like their DS8 rolls. Unless you buy unperforated Portra in 35mm surveillance or 70mm schoolfilm :) Ok, stock that came from Kodak reformated in S8 by Wittner (Chrome 100D ) is DS8, but this is history today. The rest of the stocks (Orwo/Fi...

Re: Latest announcement from Wittner

Wittner really is commited to small gauge film! The issue of course is obtaining unperforated 16mm stock to start from. That is very difficult. I doubt, for instance, whether it is possible for Wittner or anyone else to secure unperforated 16mm Vision 50d ... We have to be modest about what we can e...

No, no problem. As long as the labs that currently process E6 don't have to close their E6 lines due to lack of volume given the end of Ektachrome.

Re: All Negative: Missing Link

Tobin do a little transfer machine that is pretty cheap. You no doubt know about that.
So what is the difference between that and the type of device you are suggesting?

Re: Will Kodak release its formula & machine to a small comp

kodak use the same coating machine for all their motion picture stocks, and they are down to one coating machine in the world. This machine is HUGE (which is the problem). They do have the ability to coat emulsion in their R and D division on a small machine, but this isn't (at this stage) for comme...

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Here you go. http://crossprocessing.info/images/image_negativ_film.jpg Also, Rollei/AGFA's "Crossbird" is just color neg film labeled as E6. Forde Motion Picture Lab use to offer cross-processing, so I wonder if Alpha Cine does as well. On another note why couldn't you just under-rate your film fou...

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

It also looks like the end of colour at all in standard 8mm ... unless someone is prepared to buy the MOQ of double perf 16mm colour neg from Kodak. 20 x 400' rolls. That is a lot. It wouldn't all have to be made into standard 8 however.

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Another horrible thought is that in the absense of Ektachrome, how long will E6 chemistry itself be available? Even if ORWO comes to the rescue, the number of labs processing E6 mp film will collapse (and very quickly). I hope ORWO can save us fans of colour reversal, however I suspect the end of E6...

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Hi Ric, well, yes, you can do it. It is low contrast and golden in colour. I rather like it. It is very much an 'effect' rather than a substitute for reversal film. It is also something you would have to do yourself. You would be hard pressed to find a lab that will do this for you. The reversal pro...

I believe the fuji reversal still film stocks are still available and in production. Fuji ceased motion picture stock, not still film.

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Terrible news. The 50d is a nice stock, but no colour neg stock will replace colour reversal for price. This is going to hit super 8 very hard. Lets hope ORWO do indeed consider making one of their old colour emulsions again. As for processing colour neg in reversal chemistry, yes, it is possible. B...

Re: 16mm Developing Tank Centre Fogging

Swapping the fluids through the hose may seem a bit slow option at first. But when you measure the needed time it is pretty quick. Especially when you measure to get a height difference and make gravity pull the soup in or out :) I.e. hold up the hose with the funnel when pouring in and hold up the...

Re: 16mm Developing Tank Centre Fogging

Hi Kevin, the cup should definitely be 'up' and you should use the spacer. The problem I thinkn is that the cup is translucent. I think you are thinking in the right direction when you consider a light proof cup liner. You could even do a lot with black tape. Livo - what AJ says about the little dra...

Re: Super8 Fujicolor250D negative film processing

Hi Rob, I have to agree with Aj's coments about splices. It is essential you tell a lab about this. Even better would be not to do it. The issue is that regular tape splices aren't nearly strong enough or hot water resistant enough to be secure when going through a continuous film processor. If they...
