Here's the original thread: http://www.filmvorfuehrer.de/topic/1691 ... ilmformat/
I can't read German, but why do you think this wouldn't be worth the cost of scanning?

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Hey grainy, you've obviously never seen a quality 8mm to 16mm if you believe the digital version looks better. I normally would ignore such a statement, but trying to kill time during an upload. For those interested , digital does look good if properly scanned, see Brian Fryes new film, "Our Nixon"...

Interesting! I found the bottom screen less contrasty (and better). I guess I like it a bit lighter?

Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

. I was going to shoot 24fps for a possible future blowup, leaning away from that now.. Mitch Hi Mitch - IMHO I'd shoot 18 fps and not worry about a blowup. Most theaters take digital projection nowadays so you're not limiting your "pro" angle by doing that, and in my experience, digitally-projecte...

I love how the avichrome looks. This is great news. I wonder about its avilability in the USA?

mix n' match super 8 and super 16

hi folks, like others here, I got the last few carts of super 8 100d, these from my local lab. What I'm thinking of doing is using the 100d in a montage to open a film I'm shooting this summer, intercutting the 100d with vision3 250... but the vision3 would be shot in super 16. These would be outdoo...

Plus what a horse's ass to make a comment like that. First off, it's rude, and second, it's beside the point. My honda accord gets better milage than a '57 chevy, but you don't hear anyone talking about the '57s milage, do you?

Urban outfitters selling super 8 camera and film

From Pro-8. Say what you like about them, they're getting it out there! I've been hoping for years that Lomography would find a super8 option but now I wonder if they're either waiting to see how pro8 does, or letting them worry about s8 and focusing on more still cameras. Anyway -- the point is, to...

Re: Here's my film on underwater hockey...

great film Jesse - I agree with everyone here about the "good things", love the color/bw mix. Subject matter is inherently interesting, the addition of women to the mix keeps it lively as well. The underwater photography is just excellent. I found myself holding my breath at points. Maybe because I'...

Re: A Straight 8 Reject

Rejection sucks, hell I just got one today myself. The thing is, people that program festivals are generally not creative or they would make their own films. So what do they have to work with? Some have good taste, and others just plow along on their ability to organize and boss others around, and o...

Re: new toys using real film ?

Interesting! I wonder if the cartridges they talk about are actually available too. There was something like this in the USA for years (in the 1970s at least), I remember a star-wars version, which I think was a 30 second trunchated version of the entire film. Depending on how fast you hand-cranked ...

Re: 16mm scan test

Hi Carl - why would you not scan at the highest possible rate, besides to save on storage?
Also, your cow scan looks GREAT!!!

Re: Cool Kodak Super 8mm logo

Are any new 'film' cameras being made? Nikon Canon all have stopped making new 35mm film cameras. If the market can't support 35mm cameras, how can anyone think that S8 cameras would have a market that will support a new camera. --J.S. I pretty sure Nikon still makes the F6 in small batches, and of...
