Re: A few new experimental films

They all looked terrible to me. The emporer has no clothes on.

Re: Digital refuseniks

I have always been a great believer in old tech + new tech. I too use analogue cameras, I have quite a collection. Anyhow what got me going again is the ease of scanning the negatives. I was definitely not a fan of enlarging, especially spotting which is a doddle on even a basic photo programme. I e...

Splitting & perforating bulk film

Other than the well know companies I do not know if anyone else has fancied having a go. Anyhow here are some offerings from Ilford for 50'/100' rolls of varying width.

Re: Kodak Super XX Film Info Needed

Isn't this stuff the same as Tri-X but rated at 200asa. It is while since I used it but i just developed it to a negative and reversed after videoing it!

I just used a basic developer, probably Paterson or Ilford. Anyhow it worked. Bit grainy though.

Re: new digital camera better than 35mm film?!

Remember: Nothing is forever. :ymsigh: Anyone carrying a flag for analogue video? ;) Anyone carrying a flag for tape? ;;) I actually have a nice Canon digital tape camcorder. While 576 is not quite as good as 720 on our domestic TV there is very little difference. I am thinking of using this Canon a...

Re: new digital camera better than 35mm film?!

This is really the old audio analogue/digital debate taken to a new level with images. However, let us be brutally honest. Most people, me included, cannot tell the difference between a digital and an analogue audio, except the latter might have clicks and scratched. Same for analogue and digital im...

Re: new digital camera better than 35mm film?!

First time I have read an explanation of the difference between digital and film light gathering. I have not appreciated before the obvious fact that the digital sensors are always in the same position while the chemical sensors are randomly distributed. To emulate film then the sensors on a digital...

Ilford 8mm film

I mentioned that years ago I had used Ilford FP4 cut for double 8. Someone was curious having never heard of it. Well, I kept the tin, it came as a 30mm length. It still has the lable and hopefully I will post a picture here:

Re: what double 8 and double super 8 film do you wish existe

Can’t believe that Ilford sold FP 4 as Double-Eight stock It was in 1975, and might have been FP3. Last time Iooked I think I still had the tin with the lable. It was a 30m/100' reel. If I find it soon I will certain put up a picture. Most of my 8mm stuff is up in the roof, which is currentl...

Have you been to the pictures lately?

Instead of subscribing to one of the one line services we, SWMBO and I, have started going to the cinema again on a regular basis. Daytime senior rates make it worth it. OK, it is not all film. Intersellar was though, you could see the odd hair in the gate!!!! Projection of digital is I understand 2...

Re: what double 8 and double super 8 film do you wish existe

FP4, it did once, still have the tin, label and movie. Reversed OK.

I suppose if I ordered enough then they would make me a few reels? Just wonder if they still have the kit, they certainly still have the film.

I just need the right numbers!!!!!!

Re: Wards Color Film? Anyone Familiar?

In the UK the film branded for a big seller was usually Ferrania/3M. Not sure if 3M/Ferrania ever made super 8 though. I believe Boots, a large chemist/pharmacy chain had own brand film made by Agfa. Agfa were probably used by otheres as well. This continued into Super 8 days. Ilford were in the 8mm...
