Re: Thoughts on Modern Cameras

Of course , what would throw a wrench into video, would be a new technology that could produce CHEAP film. Super 8 today cost about $12. a minute.....think if that could come down to $2. a minute or even cheaper.

Re: Does film cement keep forever?

I recently made about 40 splices with a bottle of film cement first opened in the early 70s. After numerous projections, only 2 or 3 broke apart and had to re-spliced ( and perhaps that was due to not using enough to begin with).

Re: film cleaner?

I am not familiar with this product. But the 2 most popular products are FILM RENEW and FILM GUARD. I also read of an enthusiast who claims that Armour ALL protective wipes make an excellent film cleaning product.

16mm film cost?

How much does it cost to shoot 100ft of 16mm film with processing? Neg & Reversal about the same? I assume some labs offer video transfer as well? Thanks for any information.

Eumig P8

The claw in my projector has receded inward, and I want to adjust the claw so that it will engage the film again. If you remove the back cover of this projector there appears to be a silver shield covering the entire drive shaft...has anyone ever removed this? My concern seems that it appears to als...

Re: Posted Some New BW & C (2011) S8 Clips On The Tube

Can you explain the film transfer to video...how was it done. Great detail. Here is a Hollywood tip for shooting models...film in varying degrees of slow motion for more realistic rendition.

The vast majority of 8mm cameras were roll loading, although there a few cameras that took a magazine. Bell & Howell even introduced their own self loading magazine to make the 25 ft flip over almost a...
