Re: Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Movie Reels to Digital MovieMa

I have yet to actually see the Wolverine in person but it doesn't appear to be very heavy duty, actually kind of chintzy. So even though the results are flawed to a degree by our standards, they're still better than I would expect. The only other unit in the consumer price range to speak of is Movie...

Re: Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Movie Reels to Digital MovieMa

I think the results from this machine look fairly decent for what it is... perfect for regular folks who just to watch their old home movies.. Really? I think the compression and artifacting on that is shockingly brutal. I've seen film-to-VHS-to-digital transfers with more sharpness and detail. If ...

I think the results from this machine look fairly decent for what it is... perfect for regular folks who just to watch their old home movies. One thing I have learned about the home movie market is that most people wanting their movies transferred do not have the skills or knowledge to navigate the ...

Re: RetroScan Universal 16mm Optical Trck Tests

Yes I love it, opens up a whole new realm of scanning. Here's a film I scanned for my local water dept from 1959, with a Variable Density Track. Also did two more for them, one from 74 and 84. The 84 reel has a nice stereo track. Here's a link to their youtube

Re: Identifying 16mm sound (6 track optical???)

Apparently it's a Maurer soundtrack http://www.paulivester.com/films/filmstock/guide.htm There's quite a variety of sound tracks out there, as I've learned using AEO Light for about 6 months now. It will scan that 6 track just fine, I've even used it on a Variable Density Track, which freaked me ou...

Re: RetroScan Universal Operating Question

If I ever get intermittent flicker, it's only on certain films that are always older. I attribute it to artifacts or heavy wear around the perfs. Dialing down the sensor can help.

Re: New Customer Universal demo!

Next to my 1972 Schwinn Stingray "Lemon Peeler", the Universal is the coolest thing I own. Anything juicy in the pipeline Roger? Software or hardware updates? I downloaded the new optical audio app and it works really well. Opens up a while new area of harvesting archives, I'll try to share some arc...

Re: Angenieux 8-64mm with new Kodak Camera

[quoteThe problem is that the rear lens element extends past the c-mount threads when approaching infinity focus ][/quote] You're right it does. Oh well, still looks good on my shelf for $14. I have a Rex 4 with a set of RX Switar primes, unfortunately none of those will work either. Ideally I want ...

Re: Angenieux 8-64mm with new Kodak Camera

The Super8 lenses made for C-mount (for either Beaulieu or Pathé cameras) use the standard C-mount focal distance... so yes the lens should work, so you probably won't need to get it collimated (another plus with the new Kodak camera is that it employs a video screen, so no diopter to throw off ...

Angenieux 8-64mm with new Kodak Camera

I just bought a nice 8-64mm P. Angenieux 8-64mm 1.9 zoom for the new Kodak S8 camera when it comes out. It's made for super 8, but does anyone know if it will need to be re-collimated? Given that there won't be a beam splitter on the new camera?

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

Here, I'd like to know how much WANTS to make perforations. There are machines, has the same Ferrania or by Wittner or Color City, but... they want to do? The fact that the P30 is presented only as a photographic material worries me. They are going to release it first as a still film with MP to fol...

Re: New filmscanner from Germany

Without the work station, it costs around 55,000 Euros which is pretty darn good if your a post house, but not priced for an individual. It's kind of a tease because it looks like something an individual film maker or small production company would have, small and stylish. I know it sounds crazy now...

Re: New filmscanner from Germany

Cool! Looks like a mini Kinetta ($200K). Looks like the real deal based on the specs, but at what cost. If it's not priced for individuals yet, it's really nothing new.
