Re: Ektachrome 100D Sample

Thanks Art,

I'm certain you will be conducting all sorts of additional tests on 100D. Where did you obtain it? Does the Manhattan Kodak office stock 100D yet?

Re: Your Favorite Lab for Tri-X and Plus-X

Per roll of B&W Super 8 reversal, Yale charges $14, Cinelab charges $15, and Spectra charges $16. Alphacine did not list a price on their site. These are all competitive prices as far as I'm concerned. What's important to me is consistent results with as few blemishes/scratches imparted to the film ...

Your Favorite Lab for Tri-X and Plus-X

I've been shooting a number of Super-8 B&W reversal film tests for an upcoming project. To date I have been using only Cinelab for processing. I am satisfied with Cinelab but I'd like to hear other recommendations (U.S. based labs) and why.

Thanks

Re: Workprinter XP to Sniper (Kinda)

I second that Tom. Art's work is great. Your conversion info/writeup is fantastic too. I have a Workprinter XP (non RGB) and you have me seriously considering it. I'm not sure I trust my skills to pull it off by I'm sure I can get some mechanically inclined friends to help. I can run my WP on either...

Re: Bauer 715 XL questions.

Is there a method to disable the internal meter to lock off the specific f/stop chosen? On my Bauers (C-5XL, C-50XL), as long as the wheel is green side up (notch vertical) then you are in auto exposure. But once you turn the wheel and you see the red side of it, you are manually setting the F-Stop...

Re: Bauer 715 XL questions.

Most Bauer Super 8 cameras have a little door on the top end just forward of the on/off switch and zoom controls. Lift the little door up. You will find a green/red colored wheel. This wheel controls the aperture. To see your F-Stop settings, turn the camera on and look in the viewfinder. You should...

And that is its beauty... all it takes is a light source to view the image. No computers, no codecs, no VCR's or DVD decks, just a lowly light bulb if you have electricity, the sky if you don't.

Re: Is the end near?

This thread reminds me of the scene in Monty Python & The Holy Grail... where the old codger is being carried out to the tumbrel full of corpses but he protests all the way..."I'm not dead yet." Super 8 is clearly not dead yet. So just keep on shooting and don't fret it (too much) until that day com...

Re: Getting rid of Pro8mm outdated film

Art,

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

With that many rolls, it may be worthwhile to send a test roll or two to Pro 8 for developing. See what happens. Just a thought.

Re: Canon 1014 Counter Problem

Tom, I enjoyed the song and the video. Nice intercutting between the film and video footage. I have no idea what may be causing your counter problems... other than the 1014E is an old camera... things are bound to go wrong. I recently had my 1014E worked on by Du-All in New York City. I did this mor...

Re: EXAMPLES OF 64T SHOT IN A 40/160 BAUER SUPER 8 CAMERA

Nice looking footage. I have a couple of Bauers myself (C5XL and C50XL), that are also only rated for 40 and 160. I plan on shooting some 64T with no exposure correction and just see how it looks. Some reports indicate that 64T really benefits from the slight overexposure.... but if not, your footag...

Re: New testpictures: Canon 1014 and E64T

Beautiful stills, Fred. Will you post a telecine? I have the exact same camera (just refurbished by Du-all) and planned to shoot 64T last weekend, but Hurricane Bill mucked up my plans. Looks like Tropical Storm Danny is going to upset my filming plans this weekend as well. WRT flickering, I just go...

Mitch, who makes that camera? (make, model).

I will take your ID caution under advisement.
