Re: Irving Higdon (IJM) Passes On

I remember him telling me he could repair any projector....so I sent him my projector and then he called me back and said it was unrepairable and I owed him a $30. inspection fee plus return shipping.

Re: Bolex P1 question

The focus ring should turn smooth and freely. It does on mine.

Re: Bolex 'B' & 'P' Regular 8 cameras - no loops?

I have owned a number of standard 8mm cameras....even the cheapest ones costing less than 1/10th of the price of P1 have all produced perfectly steady pictures (back in the 60 and 70s). I have never experienced jerk as you describe.

Re: Bolex 'B' & 'P' Regular 8 cameras - no loops?

I haven't used my P1 since the 80's but virtually all the footage from then is rock steady.

Re: rewinding super 8mm

My guess, 16mm. It wasn't like they were on a budget.

Re: Double 8mm roll...actual length?

I remember around 63'
- 64 that Bell & Howell sold double 8mm roll film cameras that came with a re-loadable magazine which made the mid-run flip easy to do....just flip the magazine....I never realized that users got some extra film with this method. Anyone use one of these?

Double 8mm roll...actual length?

The 25 ft rolls of double 8mm camera film....what is the actual length of this film? In other words, how much extra footage is there over the 25 ft for threading and fogging protection?

Re: Agfa stock degradation

I have agfachrome standard 8mm from 1970 stored on the same reel with Kodachrome. The Agfachrome looks just like the day I shot it. It sounds like your Agfa was processed on a day with bad chemistry/poor stabilization. Lab quality could differ day to day.

Re: Advantages, if any, to working in Regular 8mm

Its more fun to shoot regular 8mm,...has more a professional 16mm ambience about it.

Re: Great Ektachrome Super 8 Video

Maybe I belong to a different age, I could of really enjoyed this commercial if they could of held a few shots for more than 2 seconds. Of course, it does an nuance that could only be captured with super 8.
