Re: Ektachrome stopping at 48 feet or so

I've had this problem occur several times with my Minolta D6. I believe the issue is 2 things. As stated above older cameras are not quite up to spec anymore, and also Ektachrome 100D seems to be a thicker film. I just bought a roll of 100D and before loading the film I may try spraying some silico...

Re: Ektachrome stopping at 48 feet or so

This seems to happen more and more and I would think the easiest answer is it's the camera. It's been 25+ years since any new cameras have been made so I would guess it's a camera issue. Old grease gets gummy, motors get hot and so on. I'm sure somebody knows just what causes it.

Re: Cool Kodak Super 8mm logo

Kodak themselves should make this into a tshirt. They need all the cash they can get.

Re: Bolex P1 ZOOM REFLEX Daylight filter

As far as the viewfinder you'll want your eye up against it or to have it covered when shooting so light does not leak in through it. Since it is a reflex camera light entering the eyepiece can effect exposure. I've never heard of allowing for it as far as separate metering goes. You might be thinki...

Re: Bolex P1 ZOOM REFLEX Daylight filter

Actually the Yashica 8E III had a built in daylight filter and ND filter. I would guess other might have as well but they certainly were not auto set by a notch like in super cameras you had to dial the Yashicas into place. They are right though about this camera it has no built in filter. This migh...

Re: The possible RETURN of KODAK EXR, KODAKCHROME and other

If true and if they pull it off I'll be very impressed. I have simply assumed they were too large to adapt and would just fade away.

Re: 100D Ektachrome in Sankyo CM 400 question

I usually look through the lens with a bright light. It will be dark with the cartridge in true but if my old eyes can see it then most people should be able to. :)

Re: 100D Ektachrome in Sankyo CM 400 question

http://www.super8data.com/database/cameras_list/cameras_sankyo/sankyo_cm400.htm I'm not POSITIVE but it looks like it is reading it correctly judging by the specs in this link. It claims it will read 100 ASA daylight which is what 100D is so if the orange filter is swinging out of the way then I thi...

Re: After a cable that resembles a VGA type

9 pin Dsub seems to look like it. I think that's what RCBASHER means. They seem to be called many things :?

Re: Telecine 5 blade projectors

I've been curious as to how to do DIY telecine, more just to check out non-crucial stuff that I shoot for practice. Obviously, more important projects will get a real telecine. But..... What are these Telecine 5 Blade projectors that I see on Ebay all the time? http://cgi.ebay.com/ELMO-16mm-TELECIN...

Holy $#%^ that looks incredible. It would be great if ALL old footage was transferred this way for news, documentaries etc.

Re: UK J of P: "Kodak phases out digital, keeps film alive.

I have no problem with the middle man. If not for him there would be no Dbl 8 for us. Kodak bailed on 8mm years ago so why let them have it back.

Re: developing b/w movie film using coffee and vitamin c

It does work but I think it takes more than just coffee and vitamin C. Actually just buying the B&W chemicals would be easier and they are not expensive. Getting it to be a positive image is more work though.

Re: anyone have any lomokino results?

I don't have one but I read abut it on their website and they were perfectly clear about what it can and can't do. Did anyone expect a camera made by Lomo that creates a 35mm "movie" to be built of any quality for daily shoots? I'm kind of surprised by all the hate for what is just a fun toy. Actual...

Re: Good Example Of What The RED Cams Dont Fix

I guess it all depends on what you're doing. I will say if you show up to a production shoot for a client with a cart of 100D and a GAF camera you'll likely be asked to leave. :lol:
