Re: Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

VideoFred,
I have looked into having the gear 3D printed but it is too fine detailed for most peoples printers. Then there is the cost of file creation which is too high for a one off. Therefore I will continue to look for a broken 814 camera. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Hmm... 7294 was a colour negative film from 1983 till 1986. I suppose Kodak couldn't come up with some new numbers? This could be confusing for future film stock searches or references. Anyway, it's great news Ektachrome is back! :ymparty: It seems that Kodak is going to a lot of effort to make sure...

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

ncollingwood, Those are interesting images. Looks sharp but I was expecting false colours. Is this the image one would expect if one projected it or have corrections been made in the telecine transfer? Since the neg is rated at a lower ASA during shooting, hense overexposed, is it then pulled in pro...

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

I'm not sure why some think the sound was terrible. I had good results. Maybe it's dependent on the microphone quality. The beauty of sound cartridges was being able to capture synchronized picture and sound when people talked. You don't need super high fidelity for speech, just a good microphone so...

Re: New Kodak Super 8 Camera Preview

Any news on the new Kodak Super8 camera? Is it ever going to happen? In my opinion they missed their timeslot. Too much delay, all the media fuzz has gone, no hype, just more delays and another price jump. What do you think? The camera is way too expensive and it's huge. I don't know if Kodak inves...

Andreas Wideroe,
It's no problem if Kodak release the film in winter for me. I'm on the other side of the world and will it will be summer. :ymapplause:
So Kodak, don't be shy. Let us show the world what 100D looks like under the bright Australian sun.

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

aj, Sorry for my misinformation about the film layers and thankyou for correcting me. It has been a long time since I read about how film is made and for some reason I made a mistake. I may have been thinking of the negative to print process and the illustrations used to explain it. As you say, one ...

Re: Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

Will2, This is a very fine toothed plastic gear. It's 18mm diameter, 1mm thick, with 40 teeth of 1 mm tooth depth and helical cut. One would need a very high resolution 3D printer I think. Was going to try epoxy casting but I've got my doubts about how long the gear would last. Maybe I should try a ...

Re: Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

Since it seems no one has a scrap Canon 814 or 1014 available for parts I am thinking of scraping my Canon 1014.
If you need a part let me know which part you want and if I get enough different parts wanted I won't bother to repair my camera.

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Traditionally reversal film has been more expensive than negative film. Negative film is a simpler film. Reversal film is effectively a negative and positive film layered on top of each other. Although Tri-X is a reversal film being black and white means it only has 2 active layers compared to negat...

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Just wondering about pricing of this elusive new Ektachrome 100D. How much would you like to pay? I've heard some people thinking that this reversal film should be cheaper than their negative. Wishful thinking in my opinion. I think it will be dearer than Vision stock. I'll predict US $35 per Super ...

Re: Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

Maybe I'll have a go at making a new gear. Wonder if anyone has had success with moulding a fine tooth gear?
This Canon camera is way to complicatedly (big word here) designed! These bloody engineers should stick to drawing rockets!

Re: Where can you buy positive 16mm color film?

That's interesing information chaps. It's confirmed my suspicions that Super 8 is not all that much better than Standard 8. I think the Kodachrome 25 daylight was available in Super 8 cartridges at one time and it would have been amazing. The thing is these days film has to compete with video so the...

Re: Where can you buy positive 16mm color film?

K25 was an exceptionally sharp film. I remember seeing my fathers K25 Standard 8 films and they seemed sharper than his later K40 Super 8 films. He used good cameras for both formats.
Cineandy, did you also use K40 in your 16mm camera and if so how did it compare to the K25?

Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

Is there anyone out there that has a Canon 814 or 1014 that's being wrecked for spares? The silent models. I need one of the plastic gears that drives the frame and footage counter. This is from the model with the two circular dials. Unfortunately mine has a broken tooth. I was thinking maybe I coul...
