batteries??

single 9v batteries are no good for s8 cams. That's why there's no single s8 cam out there that use them. Use 6x AAs instead. What model camera is it? Be careful you're not sending 9v direct to the auto iris meter as anything over 1.2-5 volts will destroy it. Some cams separate and distribute power ...

Saw Rescue Dawn at my local cinema (which is thriving BTW) in digital projection (2k or 4k I'm not sure?) and it was like watching a movie on a blotchy LCD screen (highlights especially). Sur...

Has anyone tried something similar? What were your results like? Place your strip of film on a light box and simply use (I use a sony cyber shot) a digital camera set on macro mode. Results are beautiful. I also use a wide angle lens but it's not necessary really. But you must be in macro mode thou...

will these batteries be okay for use in it? yes Richard but even better still buy Eneloop Nimh batts... they hold charge for up to a year just sitting on the shelf minding their own business.
