Re: Misaligned film transfer

I assume you know how to adjust the framing on the projector - using the frameing knob? Just thought we should start with the most obious thing.

Re: Agfa stock degradation

Yes, that is a standard result from old Agfachrome.
As john says, longevity was a fantastic feature of kodachrome dyes. Old ektachrome also fades, though IMHO not as badly as Agfa. New Ektachrome apparently has far superior dyes to the older versions. Sill it won't last as long as kodachrome.

Re: Super 8 in a Standard 8/Regular 8 projector

unfortunately it won't transport the film.
Also, the sprocket being in the middle of the edge of the frame rather than between frames would also stuff things up. Basically it doesn't work.

Re: Fuji stops manufacturing films?

Velvia and Astia of course not being motion picture films, but 'still' films.
RDS is the only MP stock they will continue with.

Other people having problems with Filmshooting.com?

At least fromy my perspective in Australia, I find that Filmshooting.com is only 'up' and available 1 time in 4 that I try to access it. Are other people having this problem? This is not just on the same computer, but also on other computers, and on my phone, etc..

Re: Exposure compensation old Fujichrome R25/RT200

IMHO there is no rule of thumb for such a situation. There is a very good chance that your film will come out completely clear with no image at all. On the other hand, you may get something between an extremely washed out image and a very washed out image. Being reversal film, I don't think you can ...

Re: duplicating standard 8 film prints.

Regarding this topic, one curious thing is that Kodak have 3383 colour print stock perforated .1500 for standard 8 in their catalogue. That is wierd, given their reluctance to keep things in their catalogue. Unfortunately the modern style of digital to film printers have never been made for 16mm, on...

Re: Tasma 16mm film

I have tried a number of times over the last few years to find out about tasma film. The closest I got was when I had a contact in the Ukraine email them. The answer they received was that the only motion picture film they had available was in 35mm. But if you do find a way, let me know as I would g...

Re: Self-processing B/W

Hi Mark, Kodak D11 is a high contrast developer. It is not what you want for negative processing, and is probably too contrasty even for reversal processing. The standard bw neg developer (available in a bag) is D76. You can also get Kodak HC 110. Either of these is fine for neg. Something like D11 ...

Re: Self-processing B/W

hello MrJ, you do realise that bucket processing will give you all sorts of scratches and marks? Many people quite like that, and it is the classic (modern) 'hand processed' look. Yes, there are more processing steps with the reversal process. In general, however, and putting bucket processing to on...

Re: Standard 8 Splicer

Hi Kein, I use a roll-tape splicer made by CIR but badged Farena or something. These are handy, but not really necessary for the volume of Standard 8 film you might get. Just use a Kodak universal tab splicer. These splices are dirt cheap and very effective. The splicing tabs (available from Urbansk...

Re: Filming in 70mm.

Filmed in beautiful 70mm (well, 65mm as 70 is not a camera format (except in the USSR))

I wonder if they will make even one 70mm print.
