simple: the transparencies leave no room for interpretation about hw thr image should look like, while a color neg has not such simple 1:1 mapping of colors - lot is open to "interpretation". For publishing business, a light table with transparencies allows fast and simple judgement about the pics, ...

HA! I take advantage of this thread to ask a question I'm having since I first saw such devices: WHAT are those gazillion of wheels good for that make the film take such a funny zig-zag way from spool to spool? It looks absolutely cool, but whats the purpose? Anyone clue me in, or has a good link? S...

Ah, the good old days...y'know, the crusades ! Mitch The crusades went by sailing ship and on foot or horse. They didn't seize or force any oil-deals :) The crusades do point to religion itself being the problem however... The crusades were a good organized form of robbery, the search-and-destroy w...

just to get back to the airport topic, it seems that the days are gone when we could take a silly pic through the airplane's window, let alone with a weird looking super8 camera. I am however looking forward to the days we're only allowed to board in underwear. A flight to ibiza then must be awful l...

That dialouges were truly an all-time low, as were the lifeless ch...

I bought a couple of mailers at ebay, they must be some 30 years old judging by the logo and font. Kodak has always accepted them. I have a cart of pocket 110 kodchrome, I am very curious how it will turn out! But I have somehow intimidated by the idea that I'm burning the last existing 110 cart on ...

interesting discussion, I'm following it with much interest since I did some shooting in such a place recently. Anticipating difficulties I picked a time when really nobody was there, was well prepared and filmed the needed shots quickly without to much of a ruckus. No harm done to anybody, but I wa...

Do you have a light meter to compare? Just take some readings against a something like a wall (so you can rule out errors - like camera meters sky and your light meter the pavement). If both read the same, then the camera should be OK. Hint: you have to set the light meter to the same ISO and shutte...

since you ask, i guess you're not ready to disassemble your camera. If it's just dirt, i'd try to blow it off with canned air from both sides. I presume you already figured out how to access the filter, since you noticed the dirt. Remember that it's two filters, a clear one and the orange one, and b...

it's fairly easy compared to the 4008, since you can use standard cells. These even exist longer cells that have more power and fit perfectly in the holder. The battery is opened from the contact side, unlike the first impression suggests (one might think that at the other end the cap might screw of...
