Tungsten vs Daylight notch break through - I was wrong!

I have been contemplating the nature of the camera's interaction with filter notches. This discussion was taking place on another thread titled 'Okay, Let's try This One Again...need help with 100D'. Thought I would start a new thread to say I WAS WRONG and explain what I have worked out. If filter ...

YES, it would be real easy to notch a cartridge correctly for 100D, but that is not the case with pro8 100D Yes, it sounds like the carts currently (or previously) on offer are notched the same as 64t - ie, for 64asa with filter notch. But my concern here is that it is not clear how 100d SHOULD be ...

Yes your quite right, its not the length of the notch that is measured, it is the distance from the centre to the nearest slot edge. Of course that makes the slot length a corollary to that distance and camera's 'detect' the asa by reading from the top notch edge down to the edge nearest the centre ...

160t and 100d is the exact same notch so as long as your camera has a filter notch reader it will work. this means that it's more compatible than 64t, go figure. assuming the carts are correctly notched of course. neither kodak nor pro8 seems to know how to do this, alas. /matt I am afraid this is ...

Use a clapper board and ... a DAT tape recorder or a minidisk recorder or a video camera with manual audio controll or an old cassette recorder ... probably in that order of preference. You probably won't need a crystal controlled camera if your takes aren't too long, or you a prepared to jiggle a l...

So you need to what speed their current cartridges are notched for, and you need to determine the film speeds your camera can identify. For the first part, ask proa8mm or buy a cart and measure the notch. Then look up the measurement on the SMPTE cart notching table (or post the measurement here). F...

Some people call the 2x50' super8/16/35 tank a 100' tank. The tank that holds 100' continuous 16mm or 35mm is the most expensive. Olex rarely has them, and he sells them (or at least he told me) for $250US!!!!! Try one of the other Ukranian camera dealers. Try asking for one on this site: http://www...

Yes, I've got 4 Lomo tanks. I think they're great! Find out about the different models of tank available before you commit to buy one. If you are doing super8, you really need the Model 1 (version 1 or version2). It (they) do 2x50' of super8 or 16mm. They can be identified by having only one hose. T...

Film Lubrication

I lubricate all my home processed films with a film lubricant I picked up somewhere. Trouble is I am getting low. Urbanski film sell various kinds including an eccolube (I think) and Film Renew. There is also a product called Film Guard. I am really looking for a lube that will make more of a differ...

elmo 1012sxl - exposure compensation dial?

I don't know this camera but one has been offered to me for sale. I know it is a 40/160 camera. According to the super8wiki it has an exposure +/- feature, but according to the owner it does not. Anyone know? Obviously, if it did, it would be possible to adjust it for 64asa auto exposure.

Or when using the potasium dichromate bleach you use sodium sulfite. If processing the Foma stock, you need to use a long clearing itme (5min or so) with a strong clearing bath (say 25g/litre).

The lower the asa the less of an issue. I have had John Schwind send me a lot of stock from California to Australia with no problems and just using Unites States Postal Service.

Yes yes. I do this very thing with a K3 and Fomapan! This stock needs a stronger and longer clearing bath than the Kodak stocks.
