Re: I'm Back

[quote="Nigel"]I haven't seen "Sherlock". However, the cinematography may be terrible regardless of what camera they used to shoot with. Maybe it's in the broadcast or whatever it was mastered on and used by PBS to broadcast. Certain shots, e.g. fast moving or sped up shots and low light shots get a...

Re: I'm Back

off topic, but not really,

Anyone know what they are using to shoot the Masterpiece Mystery program "Sherlock"?

I love the series but the cinematography looks dreadful (IMO).

Re: E100VS discontinued...What does this mean for E100D?

So is this the end of all still photography Ektachrome film?

The discontinuation notice lists all the films as professional.

I have shot 35mm Elite Ektachrome before but it was not a professional graded film. I didn't think Elite came in professional and consumer grade but now I am not so certain.

Carl and Bart, thank you for your ideas / feedback. I like them both and I could certainly attempt a combination of the two.

How might I achieve this SFX?

I am working on a short black and white film. I am using Super 8 Tri-X. The script calls for a quick fixed cutaway shot of a tabletop. On the tabletop sits a shotgun shell sitting upright. The casing of this shell needs to show as a sort of ghostly glowing shade of blue, maybe even a pulsing blue. T...

Re: Exposing Tri-X Correctly

I shoot mostly Tri-X. I also use an external light meter most of the time. If I'm shooting with tungsten lighting, I set the meter to 160. When I shoot in daylight I set the meter to 200... unless I am using a ND filter over the lens, then I make the appropriate adjustment to the meter. So far, it's...

Kodak did very well indeed yesterday and no one has comments on this... Please update all your pesimistic moods & news! :o Who says Kodak did very well yesterday?

Re: super 8 beginner... some questions

Based on a You Tube video about this camera, it appears it has no automatic exposure. Instead the operator manually sets the exposure using an f-stop ring on the lens. This means you can use any Super 8 Cartridge film but you would have to either estimate the exposure (not advisable) or use an exter...

Re: GodDammit.... The End Is Not Near.. Light Meter App....

You have to have the 3Gs or 4 model iPhone. It doesn't work on my iPhone 3G as that model does not have a video camera.

Oh well... I was planning to upgrade to the 4 soon, tho' I'd like to wait until the 5 comes out in hope that Apple will steeply discount the 4.

Re: The end is near.

The last time I checked the B&H Photo website (this morning), there was still plenty of choice in 35 mm (still) film stocks. Mostly Kodak and Fuji but Ilford and Agfa too, among others. And Dwayne's still processes all sorts of different film stocks. I too lament the loss of local retail photo shops...
