16mm/8mm ghost footage??

For some reason I feel like there’s something inherently supernatural about film, and I’m wondering if anyone has any footage of “ghost” or strange phenomenon caught on film?

And if so do you have a link? Or description of the footage?

In my above post the first number should be 1232, not 1231. I mis-typed and can no longer edit the post.

Re: 7232 16mm film info

Are you sure its not 1231? There is no data sheet for 7232. If it is 1232, then it is Super-XX on a nitrate base not an acetate base and the film needs to be handled carefully as over time it can degrade and spontaneously catch fire. It could also be 7222 the venerable XX which has been around sinc...

7232 16mm film info

So I have several 50ft reels of Kodaks 7232 film, which expired sometime around 1952/1953... I shot some last night on my Bolex. I had the fstop set for compete darkness even though my room was fairly bright. Developed it as a negative in d-19 and fixer, and could barely see any images. Anyone have ...

Successful hand processed film

In case anyone wanted to know how this whole wild endeavor turned out. I need to thank my local camera store for telling me that anyone who knows how to cook can do reversal processing as it’s all about mixing correctly and temperature.

Re: Best method for “bucket processing”?

I just bought a bolex h16 reflex and have some 7266 film arriving. I plan on buying a Lomo tank, but in the meantime I’m losing patience and I want to shoot and develop as soon as possible. If anyone has any experience in “bucket processing” and knows the best way to get the best picture in these c...

7266 16mm home processing

Planning on developing my first roll this week. But I’m having trouble with the dilutions. The reversal bleach I have no problem with. I’m using d-19 as my first developer, anx Kodak powdered fixer, and dektol as my second developer. I have 1 gallon buckets that I plan to use. How many grams of each...

Re: reversal bleach

I'd be more concerned about technique of diluting the sulphuric acid. If you add the acid too quickly to the water, you can cause it to spit back or even to boil. OK so hopefully you're wearing eye protection but still conc. sulphuric is nasty stuff if you spill it. Your container can also heat up ...

Re: R9 bleach

Yes indeed if its 48 or whatever percent just use twice as much. If it were 20% use 5 times as much. Battery acid is usually about this strength. You are quite correct. Of course instead of sulphuric acid you can use 65 grams per ltre of sodium bisulphate. This is available from swimming pool soda ...

Re: Bolex H16 Rex prism

A lens cleaning kit will take care of this problem and is something you should have for any camera or projector. By the way, a none reflex camera almost always gives a better image and it would probably be relatively easy to convert one of these to one. Convert it by removing the prism? You think i...

After you find a tech to CLA your camera you'll know the answer, if any, to your first two questions.

Syncing pre-recorded sound while shooting at 12fps

Would I have to slow down the audio? And if so how much would I have to slow it down so that the actors can sync their mouths while I record them at 12fps?

I want to project this while I sync the sound using a laptop...

Bolex h16 camera rattling squeaky noise

I just took my bolex for its first test yesterday and noticed every other few seconds I’d hear a subtle squeaky noise. I’m pretty sure it needs lubrication,

but how long does the camera have? And how will the test footage look?

And also does anyone in the Los Angeles county lube up bolexes?

I have done this many times, when cleaning, to clean off any smudges that I've made I use acetone liquid.
