16mm Transfer Grading, Pay or Play?

Grading, do I pay for professional "Grade" together with the 16mm film transfer which costs almost as much as the transfer, or do the grading with software after the scan on the pro res files? Apologies for not searching the forum or Google prior to posting this.

Re: The 16mm to HD, 4K or 2k Question

Thanks again, I would rather trust your personal experiences than a half hour of google searches (which I did btw). At this stage for archival purposes, since we have the films, I'm suggesting a 2k scan, and keep the films in storage another five years or so and scan again when the 4K transfer price...

The 16mm to HD, 4K or 2k Question

Greetings, been away, now I'm back with a query for the congregation: Do I use a broadcast quality scan, or a mom & pop shop - ebay scanner shop, or purchase a HD, a 4K, or 2K machine and kit? I got the budget and 60,000ft of 16mm in cans to scan, something like fifty 1200' reels of corporate and ch...

See Through Single 8 Film Cartridge

I found this see through Single 8 film cartridge in a Fijifilm Z800 I bought at a local car boot sale. Why is it "See Through"? It's got FUJI FILM branded black tape with a length of film in it too. I have been looking for a re loadable single 8 film cartridge. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3728/945...

Re: Building a frame accurate home transfer system

Bolex is arty, the GAF is just a plastic box. Stick with your design, beauty in life is good. Using a B&W camera and three combined exposures per frame reminds me of High Dynamic Range processing with digital SLR's. Also there's the challenge to drive three captures per frame, with Red, Green, and B...

Re: Building a frame accurate home transfer system

Can you upload some close up photos of your projector? I'm upgrading an old GAF 2688Z projector by putting in a 2 Watt LED bulb. Some time ago, I had help from the kind users of this forum to upgrade the GAF projector to frame by frame telecine device. I fixed a micro switch next to the film advance...

It was a while ago at a film developing workshop. We used hand washing liquid, not dishwasher. Just bought a box of Borax substitute today.

Re: 8mm in C41 chemistry?

Had some 16mm film cut so I could use and test my ebay camera finds. I've shot a bunch of Super 8, Single 8, and Double Super 8 and a bit of Regular 8. Mostly personal and home telecine stuff like this on my youtube playlist. Most of the youtube stuff is reversal film and DIY telecine, except for th...

Re: 8mm in C41 chemistry?

Good question. I didn't say what films to send. Most 16mm 2R film stock is OK. Don't need to find unperferated film stock. I sent him some 2R film for his 2R -> 8mm machine ( my nomenclature). I don't know if Mr. Nowill has got a 1R -> 8mm Perferator working. Note the film stock can labels have 1R o...
