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:

Electronic viewfinder the cheap way

Hi! Attaching an iPhone 7 to a Meopta A8L2 Supra with a cheap Chinese „camera adapter“ (4,99€ including shipping)? Works! Unfortunately, the Meopta‘s viewfinder is "too slippery" and "nearly too tiny". That's because its diameter is close to the lower end of the adapter's capabilities (see the attac...

Replacement eyecup for the Elmo Super 103T

Hi! My Elmo Super 103T came with the optional eyecup holder. But the rubber eyecup itself was missing. But guess what: the cheap Chinese replacements for the Nikon DK-19 are perfectly fitting onto the holder. And they only cost 3,51€ including shipping! You only have the remove a semi-circle of rubb...

Re: Iscomorphot S8 / 2x

Hi! Theoretically, you could use all anamorphic lenses for both filming and projecting. However, not all anamorphics are equally suited (minimum distance for focusing, bulkiness, weight, form factor, ...). E.g. this Iscomorphot isn’t the best for filming. If you would like to have a 2x anamorphic le...
