Re: Lomo tank processing

Hi I suspect you are loading the spiral with the film's emulsion facing in. You need to wind with the emulsion out. Otherwise the edge of the film in the track touches the track on its emulsion side and trends to miss the chemistry. In 16mm that isn't usually a problem (unless you are doing super 16...

Re: Any advice please

With reversal film a camera gate hair looks similar to a telecine gate hair - black. With neg a hair in the camera will be white on the film but black in the transfer. A hair in the Telecinie gate will end up white in the transfer. This film was neg. The hairs appear dark. Ergo they are camera gate ...

Re: Any advice please

Hi That film was shot using colour negative. As such it is clear the hair is a camera gate hair not a projector (Telecine) gate hair. They need to clean the camera gate. Open the film door and, with the aid of a bright light, clean the film gate (which is the little square hole where the light comes...

Re: 16mm film sources

But unfortunately kodak effectively don't sell any 16mm double perf (2R) stocks any more. orwo and foma are prepared to make it. But you have to deal with the factories directly and buy a quantity. Better to try to change your camera...Or invest another $20 on a different one.

Re: Will this film work?

The internal filter in a super 8 camera is orange (85) to warm up daylight to be like tungsten light (of course in colour temperature terms daylight is a higher temperature than tungsten, also filtering itself doesn't change the frequency of light it just subtracts some frequencies...). So with 200t...

Re: Will this film work?

Hi johnny
It will be absolutely fine in your camera. The difference between 160 and 200 is just one third of a stop which is nothing for colour neg. Many people rate it at 100 deliberately to make a darker.negative.
Enjoy!

Re: Safety when using Foma R100 kit

There is no need for fearing any photochemical stuff or wearing masks or respirators (!). Gloves might be handy though. Except when dealing with potassium dichromate or potassium permanganate... Or do it outside. You should also use a respirator with paraphenylalameindiamine type developing agents ...

Re: Safety when using Foma R100 kit

Here is the thing: The bleach powder is carcinogenic (can cause cancer). You must avoid breathing the dust. So, when handling the powder, wear a mask. Better still, mix the bleach outside and be up wind of the container as your pour it. Mixing the bleach also involves handling the sulphuric acid. I ...

Re: New GK reloadable super8 cartridge

Actually, looking at the other picture - of the hand holding the assembly - I think it's the entire plastic assembly that has a spring under it. That V shaped plate: C Yes, that's correct. The 'spring' is actually part of the pressure plate. Makes it even less fiddly to load as there is no separate...

Re: Krasnagorsk k-3 dust?

Take the pressure plate out (with a K3, it just pulls out, its not connected at all).
Now in bright light, simply take a wooden stick (like a tooth pick) and clean off any dust you can see. Its a very easy task. It should be done often.

Re: What's brighter a 15v 150 watt EFR bulb or 30v 80 watt E

Wattage is power. Brightness comes down to power (wattage) rather than voltage. So go for more wattage (power) if you want greater brightnes. Bearing in mind of course that halogens are brighter than straigjt tungsten.

Personally I'm very excited about ferrania. We need to be realistic however about just how complex colour film is. It takes a long time and a lot of resources to do r and d on any film stock, let alone colour. we.have to be extremely thankful.for whatever they do manage to produce. they can't just d...

Re: Ferrania is a go!

Sound film! Great idea.
Sadly there will never be another super 8 film as good as 100d. Probably never as good as 64t.
