Re: Vision 3 50D Double-Perforated - Sample Film

I love the convenience of those mag cameras. But when I moved I had to get rid of some things and that was one of them. I also figured with the decline of double perf 16mm film and the difficulty of loading the mags, if you don't want to pay exorbitantly for someone to do it for you, it just was not...

Re: No news from Ferrania is not good.

My concern is not the cost of film renew, it is the offensive ( and harmful) fumes that I don't want to deal with. Black and White is great but it will never replace color film. I realize that Polyester film stocks have issues, But this would be a great alternative to Kodachrome's archival qualities.

Re: No news from Ferrania is not good.

The sad fact is that Kodachrome was the most archivable acetate film stock. Kodak was very short sighted on doing away with Kodachrome. Kodachrome was not perfect by any means but any other acetate film stock will be high maintenance. You will have to use caustic chemicals ( plug your nose) to preve...

Re: Kodak Digital Team accepting reservations for new S8 cam

We did have the Swedish Ikonoskop camera: http://www.retrothing.com/2005/09/an_affordable_s.html Unfortunately, the Ikonoscope was stripped down in terms of features. With 16mm, you could have automated laps dissolves like many Super 8 cameras have and you will not be limited to time due a convolut...

Re: Kodak Digital Team accepting reservations for new S8 cam

That's a great idea because there are very few, if any 16mm cameras that have any of the mechanical features of some of the better super 8 cameras. . Yeah, in the context of filmmaking cameras, Super 8 cameras are essentially high tech toys. Why not apply that technology on a more professional level?

Re: Kodak Digital Team accepting reservations for new S8 cam

As fine as our Super 8 cameras are with all of their automated features, it would be great to have Kodak and inevitably other manufacturers come out with cameras of the same concept in 16mm. Super 8 cameras have proved to be marvels of engineering and convenience for film makers. But with all of the...

Too bad that it does not have a slow motion feature on it.

Re: Wonderful consumer scanner for Super-8 from the East

Maybe a machinist can replace the plastic looking gate with polished metal one for better handling of the film.
