Re: Seized Filter Holder/Adapter

Maybe the adapter never fit onto the hood in the first place? Maybe one has a diameter in millimeters (115mm), while the other one is in inches (4.5 inches = only 114.3mm)? Or they have got a different pitch?

Re: Seized Filter Holder/Adapter

Did you find out the reason for the adapter getting stuck? Sand/dust? Some damage? Or just some „sugar water“ (lemonade, coke,…) that got spilled across the hood?

Re: Seized Filter Holder/Adapter

Okay. Then what about putting the thing in the freezer: in the cold, everything (except for water) shrinks - but at a different rate, depending on the material: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN9y81l3uu4 When cold doesn’t work, then try heat (from a hair dryer) on the holder/adapter only. This way,...

Re: Seized Filter Holder/Adapter

Hi! Did you try any of these tools to remove filters or to open jars? https://www.big-photo.de/b.i.g.-flexible-filterklemme?c=619 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1693777-REG/b_w_1096776_filter_wrench_82mm.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/replacement_for/1358027-REG/benro_ftu1_filter_wrench...

Re: Nikon R8/10 question

Hi! No clue about the R8/R10, but on some Nikon-still-cameras, there’s a small plastic ring that is slipped above the rubber-eyecup where it is „connected“ to the camera’s viewfinder. It secures the eyecup so that it’s not only hold by the tension of the rubber, but also by this small ring. Hence, y...

„Fix Focus“ and anamorphics

Hi! What’s the impact of an anamorphic attachment on the „depth of field“-charts? Most of my attachments force me use „dual focus“ = to set both the camera‘s lens and the anamorphic attachment to the same distance. This takes a lot of time, sometimes too long, e.g. when you want to film a passing tr...

Re: Good to be back!

Hi! I would also be very happy to switch back from Fakebook to this forum - if there would be more traffic. (Fakebook was fun for a while, now it’s mainly only about advertising, spreading fake news and only little about the hobby. Not to mention that it’s nearly impossible to find postings older th...

Re: Home Scanners - Braun NovoScan

Hi! Great shots of trains that I sometimes didn’t know of. I wonder whether they’re all still in operation. Also thanks for the proof that these Chinese film scanners (from Winait, but sold under at least ten other brand names) can produce something useful. ;-) BTW: Did you spend much time in post -...

Re: Were regular 8mm film synchronizers ever made?

Hi!

As for counting frames or seconds: There have been various sync-sound-systems that are format-independent and simply count perforation holes (via signals from the projector/viewer or via a photoelectric sensor, e.g. the Gebuhr-system:
