Re: Scratches on Newly Developed Film

David,

Thank you for the Film-Tech link and I will look into Reel Image. I think I have come across that outfit before. In any event, I will give Film Guard a try.

Re: Scratches on Newly Developed Film

Did you clean the film gate? Could be this simple solution I hope. Jean No, I should have. Unfortunately the Bauer C50 XL does not have a side door with easy access to the gate. Film loads from the rear. I suppose I could find a bulb type blower brush with a really long neck, remove brush, and then...

Scratches on Newly Developed Film

Just tested a Bauer C50 XL I picked up dirt cheap. Shot Kodachrome and just let the camera roll on auto exposure. Got the film back from Dwayne's today and the exposure and focus was excellent, no jitter, no breathing, basically rock steady. There was, however, some thin black scratches that ran thr...

Re: my velvia test to watch....

Wow, the color rendition of your Velvia footage is gorgeous.

I gather the reliablity of Wittner Super 8 Velvia cartridges is superior to Velvia loaded cartridges by U.S. based suppliers.

Re: A message to our moderator to keep the board on topic....

I checked in this A.M. just to see if any new threads on film shooting had evolved since my last visit. Instead I lost an hour to this and said controversial thread. Now that was entertainment! (and some good food for thought too).

Re: Greenhouse Effect - experimental short film shot on super 8

Thanks for sharing your experimental film. Some very nice but unsettling imagery. What camera did you use?

Nice wheels Rog. Makes me long for the 63 Chevy Impala I had in high school.

I'm smoking a cigar here in New England in celebration of the new fathers in Norway and Australia. Congratulations fellows.

Re: Buying carts in NYC

I agree with Stephen, just buy direct from Kodak. But if you're in the vicinity of B&H, by all means check it out. I love that store and the staff has always been helpful to me as I searched for various odd photo accessories.

Re: Nikon Coolscan Thoughts

I have had a Coolscan V ED for about four years now and I love it. Mostly because I have thousands of old B&W negatives and Color Slides and Negatives from more than three decades of film shooting. The Digital ICE and other software works very well for the color slides and negatives. Digital Ice was...

Another P.O.V.

If you desire a wide range of prime lenses for your camera, may I suggest any 35mm camera that uses the old Pentax/Practica screw mount. There are lots of screw mount lenses to be found at very reasonable prices from SMC Takumars, to Soligors to Vivitars to Mamiya / Sekor lenses. I have found the Ta...

Archival Quality

As much as I like the idea, we no longer have Kodachrome, the film stock with the greatest archival value. Who knows how 64T will hold up in the years to come. I haven't begun much yet to digitize and restore my Super 8 films from the 1970's. But I have made a good dent on all my 35mm slides. Let me...

Wow! That was great.

Would love to hear details about the lighting and shooting of that film.

Very impressive.
