Re: I Made My Own "New" Super 8 Camera >>>

P.S. If your recorder does not have an separate input and the recorder is strapped to the camera, the recorder will pick up the camera motor sound starting and stopping and you can use that sound to sync your picture to the sound.

Re: I Made My Own "New" Super 8 Camera >>>

I congratulate your enthusiasm with the process but this has been tried by many before you had your epiphany and syncing up is not easy. I doubt Spectra will be be enthusiastic about syncing up the voice and will present you with an eye watering high bill to do the sync. Also I doubt the Ektachrome ...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

If Film Ferrania could be persuaded to sell their BW in bulk spools 400ft/122M or larger, there are a number of ways to have the film slit and perforated by second parties to various 16mm products. Unfortunately it would add to the cost but it would give Film Ferrania exposure to the small gauge mar...

Re: Ektachrome returns

It will be interesting to see if the film is sold with processing or without processing included. I am sure that Dwayne's, Spectra and Pro-8 would prefer without processing.

Re: Ektachrome returns

Silverhalide is correct. There is no chance the "new" Kodak will produce Ektachrome in reg 8 or DS8. It will be interesting to see if they produce it as 16mm or 35mm. If 35mm, Edward Nowill in UK can slit and perf as reg 8 but you will be paying big bucks. And if they produce as 16mm for $20,000 the...

kahl film in UK

I recently inquired to Kahl Film with regard to their color reversal films. Mr Kahl responded that since three years they have given the rights to Kahl film to a firm in London(UK) for Europe and North America. Does anyone have any idea what firm this might be? Who in UK is selling Kahl Film exclusi...

wolverine film scanner from B&H

B&H in NYC is pushing a Wolverine S8 / 8mm film scanner for $299.00. Anyone have experience with this scanner? Spec's look good.

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

Color reversal better than we have now? There is no color reversal being produced at this time for small gauge. 35mm maybe but no 16mm or 8mm. So, that being said-- anything is better than nothing. Realizing that 16mm is easier to produce than S8 in a cartridge, I hope Ferrania will send out the sam...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

Actually I recently sent Nowill 35mm film which he slit to 16mm unperforated and then perforated to Double 8mm(Reg 8) . He can indeed perforate unperforated film to D8.---

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

If I recall from previous discussions, S8 starts life as DS8 and then slit to 8mm. It is also possible that wide rolls are perforated with multiple s8 perforations then slit to 8mm. But I don't think the film is slit to 8mm then perforated. If Ferrania could furnished unperforated 16mm or 35mm, Cust...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

DS8 would be a very important addition because there are several labs that can slit film and load into Kodak cartridges but can not perforate the film. The question is can Ferrania perforate to DS8? Another thought would be to offer your film as unperforated stock for companies that can perforate to...

I believe the first use of super 8 VNF was for surveillance cameras.

Re: Which of these 3 cameras is best for low light?

One of the best low light cameras is the Canon 310XL with the f/1.0 lens. There is a manual focus and an auto focus version. I have used the AF310XLS and could take wedding films in poorly lit missions with good results. The Kodachrome was amazing that it could be used with so little light. J.S.

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

I contributed to the Kickstarter campaign and was promised "gifts". I selected super 8 and 16mm. 16mm is straight forward but I am thinking about how will the super 8 "gift" be supplied; in a camera ready cartridge or on a spool that will have to be loaded by me into a cartridge? While it would be n...
