Re: Nizo Light Meter

Hi Jeremy. The manual seems to imply that one can set the exposure manually, and I had the impression that this could be done either because there was a wish to set it manually or because the electronic exposure system was not working for some reason. So, I thought, that the exposure setting could b...

Re: Nizo Light Meter

Jeremy. The exposure batteries are required to vary the iris aperture automatically. I believe that if there are no exposure batteries and the exposure meter and automatic iris setting are not functioning, exposure may still be set manually. I think, therefore, that if what you are doing is setting ...

Re: How do I use lap dissolve on a Nizo S 560?

I have a manual in English for the 801, 561 and the 481, and I suspect that what it says about "Automatic dissolves" will apply to your camera. It says: "20. Automatic dissolves As you near the end of a show, press the R button on the camera. The automatic dissolve mechanism will fade out the scene ...

Re: Is DSLR the terminator for super 8 and 16mm?

I have been following this exchange of views with interest, and I wonder whether there is a fundamental weakness in the judging of film -v- video in the way in which it seems to be judged. Based on my own experiences as an interested amateur rather a professional, it seems that "film" has been one s...

Re: New Super-8 Cartridge Notch Tools available

I have a Nizo 561M. The speed of film stock is detected by means of a slide. The further the slide is able to enter the ASA notch on the cartridge, so the ASA is detected. There is a filter notch detector and because Ektachrome 100D has no filter notch, this detector ordinarily removes the internal ...

Re: New Super-8 Cartridge Notch Tools available

First of all, may I say how impressive is the work you have undertaken to produce this new Super8 cartridge notch tool. The new tool makes easy reading of what can be a most confusing subject. Well done! You invited comments, and I am wondering whether it might be worth mentioning specifically that ...

Re: nizo 561macro and ektachrome 100d

Earlier this year, before Kodak marketed Ektachrome 100D, I decided to try 100D in the form sold by Wittner (marketed as Wittnerchrome 100D). Then when Kodak started marketing the stock I got some packs and had some processed with very pleasing results, but not taken with a Nizo. Just recently I use...

Re: nd filter question

Yes, it is very helpful.thanks.when talking about the Nizo camera online i noticed people preferred to put either an nd3 or nd6 filter on the front, to reduce the automatic light reading of the camera concerning iso measuring. According to you that would be -1.5 f and -2.? am i correct? Partly corr...

Re: nd filter question

Hi. There are two ways in which you can specify an ND filter. The two are simply different ways of describing the same thing. An 0.3 ND filter is a filter which reduces the light reaching the film by 1 F.stop. This is the same as an ND2 filter. An 0.6 ND filter reduces the light reaching the film by...
