Re: Multiple Choice

I’ve heard it from several different sources that UV light kills the mold. I do the same thing every now and then but I don’t use a sieve.

Re: Paillard Bolex - help??

A lot of the value you have could be in the lenses. I would search eBay sold listings for your lenses, especially the Switars. Of course condition is important, haze, mold, separation and scratches are quite detrimental to the value.

Re: Film storage

I think some people prefer cardboard boxes because they let more air circulate around the film to help prevent VS.

Re: Film storage

I have a few storage books that are made of thin plastic. They look like books but when you open it they have holes that the 50' reels press into, they are quite cheap construction. Otherwise you can just stack them in a cardboard box. Most of the time I consolidate film onto larger reels leaving a ...

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

This is the latest on Ektachrome. It looks like 2018 now but it sounds like they are making progress.

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

This is a shot I took with the Ferrania P30 Alpha that they recently made available to the Kickstarter backers. Shot with a Leica IIIa and developed in Rodinal 1:50. It's nice but still needs a little work. There were some scratches on the base and the slitting and perforation seemed a bit rough. Ca...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

interesting quote from Dave with Ferrania over on Apug. In fact, because "regular" 8mm film is infinitely easier to produce, it's likely that we will produce a small batch to release alongside Super 8 - just to see how it goes. We have already had a conversation about this as a future prospect becau...

Re: 16mm footage of Apollo 11's engines

Thanks for sharing that Scot, I'm sure I have seen it before but it has been a very long time. My father worked on the Saturn V project in the 1960's as an engineer on a Boeing contract with NASA. I visited the facility where he worked several years ago near New Orleans while I was working on the Hu...

Re: P1 vs P3

I prefer not having the power zoom. I have the P1 and P2, the P2 is the lower end of the three P models. Like sciolist said the only difference between the P1 and P3 is the power zoom, they both have the same lens and the rest of the functions are the same. The P2 has a SOM Berthiot Pan Cinor 9-30mm...
