Re: Questions about F-Stops

Still photography filters often seem to use the confusing system which is only in full f-stops of 2,4,8, etc. Each doubling is a halving of the amount of light (one stop). So a ND4 is the equivalent in cine filters of a ND6, two stops less light. That doesn't answer your question. But if your light ...

Re: My first naturist Super 8 film

Reminds me of the ads in old super 8 magazines advertising "naturist" films.
Nice work.

Re: Sending Film to Andec for processing

I tried that. The email bounced back from info@andecfilm.de which was listed on the website.

But service@andecfilm.de hasn't bounce yet. :-|

Re: Sending Film to Andec for processing

Yes I think you're right, but that page doesn't have any info about processing.
I would guess it's just for purchasing stock.

Sending Film to Andec for processing

I'd like to send a bunch of carts off to Andec for processing but can't find any useful information on their website?
Do they have an order form on their website or do you just send your film with a note with your details on it?

Re: OT: Cast your vote for the cover of my book!

No, these are finished pieces. I am purposely going with an iconic representation which, ironically, requires more effort than a mere illustration because you want to give a sense of what the story feels like without being didactic. The last thing that I would ever want is a detailed rendering for ...

Re: OT: Cast your vote for the cover of my book!

I agree 4 and 1. But I also think 2 isn't bad either. Without wanting to sound rude... :oops: surely you can do better. Are there design criteria involved in the printing which are limiting you to this design? They just don't excite me or look like the effort has been put in? Are these just rough mo...

Best value Negative processing and transfer?

Seems like things have changed quite a bit since I last shot negative a couple of years ago.

I think I used cinelab then and probably wouldn't use them this time (it took them three months to process and transfer).

So who's the best and cheapest at the moment?

Re: Is it dead here or just me??

I haven't shot s8 since last summer (jan/feb 2009), just bought a canon 7d, which to be honest just makes me want to shoot more s8.

everything these days is so crisp and hd not to mention shallow dof.

Re: 100ft reloads from 400ft

If you're using a local film lab they will probably break your 400' loads into 100' daylight rolls for you if you ask nicely. Otherwise you need a good set of rewinds and some split reels and a darkroom.

Re: Organic Film Effect

How many similar answers will it take to convince you. :roll: This effect can be done on any format just open the camera door and let light hit the film. With super 8 just take the cartridge out of the camera and you'll get something like this effect. This is a very common post effect, art beats (an...

Re: The state of Negative Film Processing in North America.

Understand that I have been utilizing a spot meter for B/W Plus-X, Ektachrome, K40 for many years. My exposures tend to be on the "dark side" ...my preference...but usually tack on. And sharp. My main digital transfer house, i.e. Frame Discrete can testify to that. ... And yes I shot some bracketed...
