Re: Removing Orange Mask from Colour Negative Scans

Does this mean that when scanning with HD Moviestuff units, Sniper Pro HD for instance, you would be better off scanning the film as is, without adjusting the white balance to have something bluer? then adjust it in After FX or other software? How about Colorista II from the RedGiant Bullet Suite? W...

Do you think there will be an 8mm gate as well?

Re: Exposing Vision 3 50D in various cameras

So this is all pretty confusing now. Some people are saying it is notched as 40asa, some as 64, like the 64T. I am not talking about Velvia, or Pro8mm stocks, just Kodak Vision 50D. What is it notched as exactly? This is important for the higher-end Canon & Nizo cameras for instance that can recogni...

Exposing Vision 3 50D in various cameras

Hi I am confused about the conflicting info I have heard regarding exposing Vision 50D. 1- Am I correct in assuming that in most cameras (25/40_100/160asa cameras), I should leave the filter switch to the bulb setting? That way, the 50D stock (which doesn't require any filter for daylight as it is b...

Cleaning Murray viewer

Hi I have 2 Murray viewers, 1 x 8mm and 1 x 16mm Does anyone know how to clean the inside mirrors? I have managed to clean the prisms at the front, but accessing the inside mirrors seems rather tricky. I took that 4 screws out that are on the side, hoping the back cover (under the screen) would be t...

Re: For those who want R8 tri-X, COMMIT!

Is it a matter of ordering for 1000 altogether between a few people, or actually several people spending 1000 usd each?
I can purchase a few hundreds no problem

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

You're just contradicting yourself Comparing scanning resolution between HD and SD means that you do one scan in SD and one scan in HD. Then you compare them (HD scan scaled down to SD vs Sd scan _ SD scaled up to HD resolution vs HD scan). Whatever looks best is worth going for. But surely, you kno...

Re: 8mm Avisynth film restoring script

Fred said on another forum: To use my script you must remove the black borders, otherwise the autolevels will not work correctly. How does that work out with a Super8 file scanned in Full HD then. Even if you don't add the black mask at the end of the film, you will have some black on the left and s...

Re: 8mm Avisynth film restoring script

Using a Sniper HD, a lot of files output to 18fps, so progressive HD files (1080p25) with a few duplicate frames, can I use this script? Would it need to be adapted/Can it? For future films, I can also work from a numbered image sequence, with no duplicate frames but I would be interested in your po...

Re: 16mm processing

Is Soho still processing 16mm? I heard they had stopped printing, but lately heard they may have stopped processing 16mm> Is that true or just hearsay?

Re: Canon 514-XLS and 64T processing/exposure

Thanks Richard.
In case the filter had been switched to tungsten on this camera, what should be done instead by the way?

Canon 514-XLS and 64T processing/exposure

Hi My friend needs to send a roll of 64T shot with a 514 XL-S for processing. It was shot outdoors and the filter was set to daylight. There is conflicting information out there as regards the 514xl and Ektachrome 64T. Is the silent version built the same as the sound version? In which case, I would...

Re: Bolex P1 ZOOM REFLEX Daylight filter

ok thanks. So if say you were going to use an iphone app for metering, would you also need to compensate for the fact that you lose 1 fstop through the viewfinder/lens? I've heard this is the case with 16mm and super8 cameras if you meter separately, but not too sure why. Apparently, the effective s...
