Moviestuff Retro8 Pro Breaking the leader - unsteady footage

Hi Just trying to come to grips with my retro8. It's kind of doing my head in to be honest. The whole tension spring thing I find highly unpractical and not straightforward. The first few attempts a few weeks ago I had footage stability and registration issues with frames being skipped. Seemingly it...

Re: Non-Customer Sagas and other adventures....

God. Both the buyer and the seller are tools. For god's sake, what was your man expecting. You have been helpful enough in all fairness.

Re: Moviestuff Sniper - Transport issue

Thanks Roger. Sorted with a spare spring I had. As the end of the spring was broken off, there wouldn't be any way to reattach it even with pliers I guess. Where could I guess another replacement spring for the Gaf I took it out of? Anyone has a broken gaf somewhere? Or could I get this from another...

Moviestuff Sniper - Transport issue

Hi I just got an issue with my Sniper HD pro, but the same issue could be with a Workprinter or even a Cinemate I guess. After finishing converting a 50ft reel, as part of a batch, any new film I am feeding through is not transporting anymore. It is not budging and the advance claw keeps going, but ...

HTI Lamps - ok to turn on/off to test when buying?

Hi About to buy and collect a 16mm projector with a HTI lamp. Any precaution to take when transporting or using gear with these kind of lamps? Does one risk to damage the lamp or the projector when turning on, then off after 20/30sec? Then transport it in a car? I want to make sure I don't blow the ...

Re: How to repair weak takeup (GAF/Sniper)?

Definitely cleaning with some isopronol will help. Mine was a bit too harsh, so Roger had recommended lightly sanding down the white roller with some fine grit sandpaper. Maybe you could look at 3d printers and printing that part again, in case it isn't exactly as round anymore. I'm not even sure wh...

Re: Kodak Price Increases

They're such idiots. Seriously. If they had kept 100D and bothered doing a bit of PR and marketing, sales wouldn't be decreasing. Ektachrome had been selling better than any other recent stock, because people could shoot and project colour film. So many people I talk to don't even think super8 is st...

Re: Daan Muller has passed away

Sorry to hear this. What does this actually mean as regards the Filmfabriek film scanner business and its perennity? Was he the main/only technician / RD capable person there or is there a full team taking over without the business being negatively affected I was looking at the new Muller S HD scann...

Re: Ferrania is a go!

Fair enough. I actually love the grainy look of Tri-X myself. If you re-read my post, you will see there was no judgement passed on the Scotch Chrome. I was merely pointing out it would be a grainy stock. Now it is true that most people seem to fabour a fine grain colour reversal like the 100D. To b...

Interesting
and Ektachrome 64T was 11 (I think Tri-X is around 17)

So Scotch Chrome is very grainy indeed @13

Re: Ferrania is a go!

How about the production of empty cartridges?
Does Kodak not have the monopoly in that department?

Re: DIY Dual 8 Telecine HD Digitizer under $1000?

I agree. As usual, it appears people tend to disregard the human & time factor in the grand making of things.
Labour itself if you were to pay yourself $10 and hour on a first project would certainly go beyond the $1000.

Re: Removing Orange Mask from Colour Negative Scans

Great
Thanks a lot
I definitely would be happy to throw a few bobs towards some assistance with this process.
If I had some presets in Premiere Pro CS5.5, that I could save an easily reuse and tweak, it would save me a lot of time and hassle, on top of getting better results for neg film.
