Thanks.. I somewhat suspected that no one did this anymore.
As far as the splices they are edit splices not just reels connected together. Will it look werid to project super 8 film with cement edit splices?
What are the pros and cons of cement vs tape splices??

Adding mag strip to super 8mm??

I recently shot and edited a short super 8mm film. All my splices are made with tape. I wanted to get the tape splices replaced with cement splices. Have the footage transferred to digital (preferred uncompressed onto hard drive) and also if possible I wanted to have a mag sound strip added as well....

If you are going to get the footage transfered to video you should go with the vision 200T. If not you can push the 64T one or two stops to make up for the lack of light. I shot a few that I had pushed two stops and they still came out quite well.

Difference between 8-bit and 10-bit with Black and White

I understand the difference between 8-bit and 10-bit uncompressed video. But was curious as to if their was really a difference with this when shooting in black and white. It seems that working with just a Grey scale it wouldn't make much difference, but I could be wrong. My computer is to slow to e...

I'd stick to reversal film for now. If you shot negative film you'll have to get it transfered to video to see what you shot, which of course cost money.

When I was in the Army we would often get told or hear rumors we would be going here or there on a certain date, but things would often change. Even if you had written orders, they could often change or be canceled altogether. This led to a saying that went something like ‘you can’t gua...

How hard is it to get the sound strip to apply to the film with this?

Do they still make it new or would you have to spend time searching ebay for some??

It is possible that I might have not gone around the lower sprocket, in fact after the suggestion that it was probably because of losing the film loop from improper loading, I was thinking about that. I have a daylight spool with leader on it that I use to practice loading. I just loaded that into t...

Test Roll - Camera Problem

I shot a test roll with a 16mm Camera and it did not come out to well. The camera takes an okay picture for about 4 frames and then it is all blurry for about 3 frames then okay again. The camera was on a tripod, when this footage was shot. It seems to do it less once the camera has been running for...

which said the demise kodachrome 40 was partly due to velvia stock
On wikipedia it says the kodachrome 25 (35mm still picture film) was discontinued partly due to velvia.
