Re: When was the last time you shot real movie film?

16mm in March but I did just order some S8 from Kodak a few days ago.

Re: Nizo S8 Compact iPhone App

...there are several 8mm/Super 8 apps already. I can't even express how many ways this is just plain wrong . Not your info, but the phenomenon of "8mm/Super 8 apps." WTF?! :? Fun game/puzzle, or whatever kind of waste of time it is, on the site, though. Tim I see your point but I think it shows jus...

Re: Jonny Quest complete!

Thanks everyone! While I will miss working on the project in my spare time, I won't miss working on the project in my spare time, if that makes any sense. A whole episode? I've considered it but would need a real budget and a team of animators that are better than me, that's for sure! Roger Better ...

I'll check it out when it lands but there are several 8mm/Super 8 apps already. This is the first "camera" specific one though. :D

Re: My new UltraPan8 film

Any chance you could put together a little "how you did it" video? Looks really nice.

Re: Jonny Quest complete!

Very, very cool and we all appreciate being allowed in on the process. I must ask though are you done? Is it out of your system or might you be considering the making of an episode? :D

Re: What do I need if I want to scan film like this?

Did you scan these or shoot them with a digital camera? They look good, better than my attempts for sure!

Re: What do I need if I want to scan film like this?

Scanning negs in my flatbed seems like it will work but the results are awful. I set it to scan negatives which turns off the interior light and allows me to use the light box on top of the scanner glass shinning down into the scanner. Results were still crappy. A person really needs to full on inve...

Re: What do I need if I want to scan film like this?

If you have a decent digital still camera with a macro option you might be able to pull this off with that. Just a thought.

Re: Shot some Plus-X at the beach

I love my P1 Bolex and yours looks like it works well. Hard to beat a camera that needs no batteries for anything.

Re: Crystal Sync question about Zoom H4n or even Marantz PMD

I wish I could help but my comment can give this a bump. I'm sure somebody here knows the answer. The last time I shot crystal sync it was with a CP16 and a reel to reel Nagra back in 1990 or so.

If it's Ektachrome, make sure it's 64T or 100D. Older Ektachromes are almost as unprocessable as Kodachrome.
Good point.

If it's Kodachrome don't bother shooting it but if it's ektachrome or black and white you might go for it.

Re: Kodak XL342, any hopes?

Since it only cost a dollar you might open it up and take a look. The screaming dork in me always wanted one of these when I was a kid because they reminded my of Luke Skywalkers "binoculars" from the 77 Star Wars film. :D

Re: Kodak XL342, any hopes?

Sounds like either the switch has failed in in ON setting or more likely that the switch was left in the continuous run position at some point. I don't have one of these but while it's running see if sliding the switch forward/backward/left/right makes it do anything. Some cameras would go into cont...
