Just put a stripe and balance stripe in a silent cart - that's all I require!

Sacramento Filmmaking Article...

Found this in an old 2002 magazine...the article is online and kind of describes where I live rather well. The talk of the various settings is very true. However, the "aeroflex" camera had me wondering if this is a digital guy showing complete ignorance or some camera unknown to me...I am guessing t...

wow

That's a lot of money for some contrasty photography...perhaps if the images were better I might ooh and ahhh. But, knowing these cameras, I would rather shoot with my GAF805M.

Cheers,

Canon

Love my Canon 16MS Scoopic, yes sir. I traded in the Bolex EBM with the 12-120 ($2000) for the Canon ($1000)...a better trade from my perspective - Completely reliable and the most similar to shooting super 8...which in my book is akin to wanting luxury options in 16mm which I think the scoopic give...

what is super 8 in terms of resolution? I have heard various numbers but was curious...apologies if this has been asked many times before...

Cheers,

Amen...

I shoot home movies only. My regular day job allows me to buy cameras and film! :D I like that quote.,..basically descibes all my hobbies/interests. However, I find I like to shoot clips of street scenes (anything that looks old and dated/slummy/etc), time lapse things like the sky, reflections, an...

flash?

All this talk of the blue flash reminds me: I had a Sankyou LXL255 Macro camera as my first one...shot many a good roll on it. One roll came back with a FLASH every scene change. Could not figure it out while watching. Finally, I looked at the film and sure enough, every time I stopped the camera, t...

Shutter angle for Nikkorex 8?

Anyone know what the shutter opening is on a Nikkorex 8 camera? It is loaded with a fresh roll of 50ASA B&W and since the light meter is broken I want to set the aperture manually. I know I will probably have to guess at 150-180 degrees and just rely on the general Kodak pamphlets of the day to help...

one last thing...

Do you think it would be TOO MUCH TO ASK if Kodak simply offered any kind of digital transfer service with each roll of K40 - seems like a no brainer. Heck, charge double the other guys and I would still have it done by Kodak. Pretty please????? OK, back to Hockey Night in Canada - I love Direct TV!...

are you like this?

Of course, explaining myself comes with the territory of using super 8. However, each non-film camera I have purchased has been first and foremost considered as to how it will transfer my films! I got a Panasonic Palmcorder way back for...video editing of s8. Then, I got the JVC miniDV dvm80 for...s...

My 2 cents...

The Chinon 505XL would be a great first camera and perhaps the cheapest of the lot - very robust and well built. It may be a TANK but a nice tank for what it gives you. AVOID the Minolta camera you mentioned...the poor quality craftsmanship is on par with Kodak cameras - very cheap and light. The Ca...

1

So, if filming in a subway is illegal, is the movie "1" at NYC flicker an illegal film? I am thinking, hey, just grab a seat on skytrain/light rail/subway and set off the intervalometer for some real fun?? Am I wrong? Just a thought. BTW, I like that National Film Board of Canada ploy...wouldn't wor...
