Is Kodachrome still processed ANYWHERE in the world?

Gave up? Where have you been? It was no longer manufactured nor supported by Kodak. Very complex large expensive industrial process. Dwayne had no choice in the matter.

Re: Paul Cotto-Film Slicer

I appreciate the update. Pro perf machines are substantial heavy beasts. I have a hazy recollection his prototype was light weight.

The connector was custom built by a renowned motion control expert.

Re: 16mm footage of Apollo 11's engines

No. Your assumptions are incorrect. Think about it. There is no instantaneous 500fps. It has to safely ramp up to speed and was designed in this manner. A custom and heavy battery was temporarily built as per the cam power specs, 30v and 30a peak available if necessary. The cam drew approx 12-15 amp...

Re: 16mm footage of Apollo 11's engines

I strongly suspect that this was shot with Photo-Sonics 1-PL 2 perf pulldown/ twin pin rego 500fps camera. The reflex version was called the Action Master 500. Here it is in action in 2017. First clip is 500fps load test at 30v approx 15 amps. 2nd clip is actual shooting speed used at 200fps, ie htt...

No Will. Not referring to outside scans. I was referring to the Logmar's internal process.

Re: Kodak awakens, new S8 camera announced at CES '16

Logmar may have implemented the same audio design as their original Beta canera. Each camera start/stop is synchronized to a sequential stamped audio file with a unique file file number. However, it never worked in the original Logmar camera. Coupled with the camera's digital servo motor/sprocket wh...

I was only aware of it's existence as a pr...
