WSJ Article about True Grit Cinematographer

There was a very good article in today's Wall Street Journal titled, "How to Shoot a Horse: A Cinematographer's Secrets. You can find the whole article online, however, the end of the article contained this somewhat depressing news about and statements by cinematographer Roger Deakins. "True Grit" w...

Re: Ektachrome 160 same as Tri-X B&W?

With Type G film, you did not need any color temp correction filter. You just shot it in daylight or indoors (with tungsten lighting) without worrying about a filter. I remember I did not like the Type G stock very much. I preferred the 160 Type A (filter needed in daylight conditions) for the rare ...

Film Equipment Repair Info & Inquiry

We see lots of inquiries about where to get Super 8 cameras serviced (I've used Du-All) but if anyone cares, I've used the following repair outfits with good results for other equipment: -- Kodak M90 Projector: Fargo Enterprises, Vacaville CA -- Bell & Howell 482 & 464a Projectors, Sanford Camera Re...

Agreed. Perhaps a Romero-esque "Zombie" film is this camera's best and highest use.

Re: Checklist: S8 B&W Reversal Labs U.S. & Canada

Thank you for the feedback. Over the holiday weekend I shot three test rolls of Tri-X and my last remaining roll of Plus-X. I think I will send two rolls to Yale and two to Alpha-Cine and see how that works out. In the past I have used Cine-Lab in MA and A-1 in NY, which is no longer in business. As...

Checklist: S8 B&W Reversal Labs U.S. & Canada

To the best of my abilities, I am attempting to familiarize myself with Tri-X, to understand this stock's capabilities before starting principle photography on an upcoming project. Sticking to the U.S. and Canada only, I think the following list of labs are the only ones that process Super 8 Tri-X. ...

Re: Any one get a transfer from Cinelab?

Tom, Sorry to hear about your bad results from Cinelab. I am assuming it was Super 8 you sent to them, but you do not specifically state that. As Tri-X is now our only Super 8 B&W reversal option (practical option if you discount non Kodak brands... at least, for those of us in the U.S.), I'd love t...

Re: Any one get a transfer from Cinelab?

I can't speak for telecine work, as I have never had any performed by Cinelab. But Cinelab has always developed and returned my B&W reversal Super 8 film in about the same amount of time as it takes Dwaynes for color reversal. I've had nothing but good results from Cinelab for B&W Super 8 reversal.....

Re: Jumping picture

I had a similar issue recently. But I am convinced the jitter or vertical motion blur was caused by the camera. The jitter was intermittent but consistent and then got worse toward the end the roll. I tested out an old Bauer C5 XL with a roll of Kodachrome from a batch that has run fine through my C...

Re: Dwayne`s

In general, my orders with Dwayne's have been uneventful. But last autumn I sent in several Super 8 rolls for developing and transfer. I did not hear from them (paypal payment request) for over a week. And then, on the same day I planned to follow up, the finished order appeared in my mailbox. I had...

Re: Second Sample - 100D

I was using my Canon 1014 XLS at the New York Renn Faire last summer. The mature folk (40+) who noticed used words to the effect of 'old school'. The young'uns (30-) mostly asked "what kind of camera is that?" and once educated they thought it was very cool. Thanks for the 2nd reel Art... love that ...
