Re: Do There Exist 1-perf 16mm Projectors?

I knew split reels existed, but I didn't know what they were called, so thanks for clarifying that, Will. Looks like a split reel is the way to go if I'm trying to project film returned on a core. Out of curiosity, about how much would a 400' 16mm split reel cost, and are there any manufacturers or ...

Do There Exist 1-perf 16mm Projectors?

Hi everyone. I realize this isn't technically a super 8 question, but nonetheless I thought someone might be able to help. Do there exist 1-perf 16mm projectors, or were most of the 16mm projectors back in the day 2-perf from the factory? I'd like to shoot some 16mm B/W reversal and just project it ...

Returning to S8 After 3 Years...Best Labs & Transfer Houses?

Hi everyone. Well, after being away from the S8 hobby for a few years I'm finally getting the itch to pull out the 7008PRO and start filming again. I've been trying to catch up on all of the S8-related news that I've missed out on over the last few years, and it looks like the biggest news (for me, ...

Let's Ask Dwayne's To Do Us a Favor...

With K-14 processing coming to an end in just a few days, I thought it would be really cool if the folks at Dwayne's would put together a video or photo sequence of the complex K-14 processing sequence and post it on their website. As it's essentially lights out for Kodachrome and the K-14 process a...

It makes more sense to send the film directly to Dwayne's, rather than trying to slip it through the back door at Wal-Mart. Dwayne's needs our support to ensure that they continue processing Kodachrome and offering low-cost E6 processing into the foreseeable future. Getting them to do cut-priced de...

It all depends on the particular git that forwards it that day. Well, evidently this is, in fact, the case. As a brief follow-up to my original message, I dropped off my E64 for processing again at Wal-Mart, and this time it returned processed...no problems. I guess the lesson is that if it is retu...

Anyone Processed 64T Through Wal-Mart Recently?

Hi all. Just curious if anyone has processed E64 through Wal-Mart recently. A couple of months ago, I had a couple of E64 rolls processed through Wal-Mart (through Dwayne's) without any problem - it came back processed about a week and a half after I dropped it off, and I was on my way, paying only ...

Suggestions for a Decent, Readily Available S8 Projector?

Hi all. Just curious if anyone might be able to recommend a decent quality, relatively inexpensive variety of S8 projector that's relatively inexpensive and readily available on eBay. I currently have an older B&H projector, but I've started having problems with the film transport, and the picture o...

OT: Question re. Theater Projection & Projectionists

I don't go to the movies all that often, as there's very little in the way of new movies that interests me these days, but as an avid fan of The Simpsons, I did make it a point to see The Simpsons Movie yesterday. I've noticed that most, if not all theaters these days use a single film projector as ...

Good thoughts, Mitch. Actually, I do already have a Pelican case for my camera for normal storage and transportation. And yes, I do store the camera with the lens removed from the camera body, and with a rear cap for the lens and a c-mount port cover for the camera body. However, I'd still like to p...

Soft, Compact Case for Beaulieu 7008PRO...Any Suggestions?

Hi all. I'd like to get a softshell case for my Beaulieu 7008PRO, so I thought I'd see if any other Beaulieu owners might be able to offer some suggestions. Ideally, I'd like a softshell case that is durable and of good quality, but also compact enough to be something that I can easily carry around ...

Educate yourself about walmart and you might just "figure it out."

Just thought I'd mention that I dropped off a roll of 64T at Wal-Mart about 9 days ago and picked it up this afternoon. As with the K40 processing, the cost is only $4.88 / roll. It's great to know that inexpensive processing is once again available through Wal-Mart / Dwayne's, especially for the ne...
