Re: My film "I Felt Your Pulse" updated with UltraPan8 foota

Let's not let off the hook the PR firm, that sick bunch of slime that think up ways to lie about someone so that the evil dirt bag can skate. Is there a lower form of making a living? The UltraPan8 looks fantastic. If I get up the nerve I might mod my DS-8mm Rex4 Bolex, provided I can still get stoc...

Re: My film "I Felt Your Pulse" updated with UltraPan8 foota

Thanks for sharing, a great job on such a sad incident. If anyone wants to know what Mr. Bryant is: http://cassiopaea.com/cassiopaea/psychopath_2.htm We here in the US are being over run with this type especially in our political, judicial, and corporate venues. Why? No one stops them. Don't expect ...

Re: New super 8 b&w stock by Adox ?

Adox makes some very beautiful B+W film for still cameras. I hope they make their 25 ASA stock available In DS-8mm and R-8mm, that would be sweet.

Re: Sound striped 16mm film

The only film I have seen with mag sound is a combination sound print that has the optical track on half of the sound track space and mag stripe on the other half. This was for multi (two) language prints. I have one of "The Big Sleep" remake with Robert Mitchum. The mag track is Japanese. Kodak mad...

Re: Skylight Filter + Tri-X

The skylight filter has no effect on Black and White film or color film. It supposedly reduces haze in the sky, but it is not that noticeable. It is used as a protector for the front of your lens. Always have it on. B+W the manufacturer makes top quality filters so you should have a good one.

Re: Fuji Professional 64T Super 8 - Sample

Your film will project a more pleasing image than any transfer will. Unless you have lots of money for a high end transfer, there are limits to the dynamic range of a video transfer that can't compete with the film original. It is about choices and compromises. You should be able to get a pretty dec...

Re: Share your Collection/Tools of Choice

Cameratech I am glad you mentioned the Elgeet lenses. A "sleeper" of a lens manufacturer. I cherish the D and C mount Elgeet lenses I have and they all produce great images. One of the best values out there because they usually go for much less than other lenses of comparable quality. R-8mm is a bla...

Re: Building a 16mm transfer unit

One look inside should scare you off, let alone the old worm gear problem. What you need is a B+H JAN. Why? Manual thread, super gentile on film. Incredibly easy to remove pressure plate and gate for easy cleaning. Terrific registration with 3 claw pull down. Frame adjustment moves claw (film) inste...

Re: OT but who cares. Jonny Quest Interview!

A full episode would be so cool! Well done Roger, would love to see more. Maybe a promo for theater chains (Johnny Quest goes to see a movie - saves the day buying tickets on-line) type of thing?

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

To be accurate, John was not a "middleman" in R-8mm film sales. He was an entrepreneur in the best sense. He literally saved R-8mm. Kodak as the manufacturer was not selling R-8mm film, to anybody until John took it upon himself to become the provider of R-8mm film to those who still wanted to shoot...

Re: Scorsese's Hugo

Back in the silent days at least two camera negatives were shot side by side for quality and money saving reasons. Instead of shipping prints world-wide, one edited camera original was sent overseas where prints were then struck and distributed. At the time the drop in quality from print generations...

Re: The strength of film

So you can't transfer S-8mm on the Spirit? Thanks for the info Will. I find my transfers more pleasing than the harsh but sharp grainy images of your link, and for a fraction of the cost but that is just my preferences. There are compromises and choices to be made and it is only up to the individual...

Re: The strength of film

I love R-8mm, but DS-8mm has more image area, can be enlarged to Max 8 width for better HD transfers, there are lots of Canon and Bolex DS-8mm cameras out there that WORK and can be maintained, tons of Bolex H8 cameras can be modified to DS-8mm etc. Sure R-8mm has great cameras out there, but as thi...
