Well done! Be very careful when using a viewer - these things can work o.k., but can also make a lot of scratches. Use them sparingly. Break you film into scenes (or other short lengths) - about 2 minutes. Watch a scene through and write down a few words for each shot - eg. wide shot getting out of ...

If it is like the bauer cameras I have, there is a little hatch on the top of the camera at the lens end that lifts up to reveal a little thumb wheel. The green part of the wheel is auto exposure, the red sections are manual apeture. The apeture should be indicated inside the viewfinder. You probabl...

Wittner Kinotecknik sell batteries for the 4008. I don't know about recelling. New battery from them costs 169Euro.

Top tank is definitely only a 10m tank. Not good for super8. The 10 meter tanks have 2 hoses, the 15m tanks only 1 - helps tell them apart.

Yes, most important that you get a 50' not a 30' Lomo (15m not 10m) for super8. Don't be discouraged! It is easy and a pleasure to do!

Yes. Very quiet camera. And quite a light camera to use. Not pin registered. The one I used was very stable and reliable over a number of shoots. Eyepiece rotates 360 degrees (though viewfinder image also rotates when doing so). Usually a less expensive crystal sych camera. Buy it if you are going t...

Kahl b/w stocks are all ORWO stocks. Their Kahl 24 is ORWO UN54. This stock is 200asa as reversal, or 100 as a neg. It is designed as a universal stock. It has a gamma of .6 when developed as a neg and 1.1 as reversal (this I understand is on the low side for a reversal film). I would not be surpris...

An advantage (and also a dis-advantage!) of these cameras over the Scoopic (Canon Zoom) or the elmo trifilmmatic is that it takes smaller loads. I have a Canon DS8, but the Quarz gets a lot of use because I can shoot 30' of film and develope it and have a look at my techniques, etc. And also change ...

Yes, I love these quarz cameras! The point of the 'VKL/OTKL' dial your are talking about is that by disengaging the claw it is possible to rewind the film for double exposure etc. Note that when doing this on these cameras, use the little winder supplied (if you have it) or a screw driver in the win...

Melbourne University. But don't tell anyone! Its just a JK printer. Actually for straight copying you can make your own with a bellows unit with macro lens and a projector that has an inching knob. I havn't made a diy printer yet but I indend to - I live near Ballarat (Daylesford) so Melb uni is not...

Get a LOMO 50' tank (15m not the 10m tank). That, and an e6 kit and bottles, thermometers, perhaps a water jacket (ie a tub to put the tank in with warm water in it) is all you need. Oh, and a drying rack of some kind. The e6 process is not hard and its great to open the tank and have colour film in...

which 16mm stock for making optical prints from s8 reversal?

I have made a few 16mm prints of super8 (k40) films using the old 7399 reversal print stock and a Jk optical printer. This stock is not around new anymore and the stock in my fridge has magenta fogging due to age. I want to now use colour neg for duplicating - the question is, should I use a low asa...

camera recomendations for a diy telecine?

I am looking for a suitable camera for a diy telecine. I would rather buy a stand alone camera than a dv camcorder. I know that such cameras designed for title work etc exist, but I am too far out of the loop to spot a bargain. Any thoughts?
