Re: Eco friendly bleach

So long story short: if I develop my 7266 16mm film in d-19, can I use an eco friendly bleach? Or is eco friendly bleach only good for caffenol based developers? (Note: The recipe is not mine) Bleach: 1L hydrogen peroxide 9% 28ml acetic acid glacial I don’t want to use the sulphuric acid/dichromate...

Re: Best method for “bucket processing”?

As Nikonr10 said, have you done classical black and white developing before? If you have experience with hand processing black and white, you know how temperamental chemistry can be. I have over twenty years experience hand developing still black and white film and I wouldn't touch a bucket process...

Re: Best method for “bucket processing”?

I just bought a bolex h16 reflex and have some 7266 film arriving. I plan on buying a Lomo tank, but in the meantime I’m losing patience and I want to shoot and develop as soon as possible. If anyone has any experience in “bucket processing” and knows the best way to get the best picture in these c...

Re: Process times for various B&W 8mm films ???

That time came from my days developing prints. The Kodak fixer package lists 5-10 minuets. Now I time how long film takes to clear and double it. I hadn't yet learned that old fixer takes longer to do the job. Thats still a long even for prints ? even if you were to go the two bath old fixer / then...

I no longer fix 10 minuets. I test a clip to see how long it takes to clear then double it. 68f/20c.
Reversal in RO9 is 1:25 at 18 min
Why would you want to fix for 10 min thats a long time for a film , or is it a weak soup ?

Re: Canon 814 super8 - Battery Corrosion - doesn't work. Repair $ cost?

I am you sure you will find a better deal on ebay ? thing is it better to go buy one from a dealer were you test & play check touch etc . Still 129$ is not cheap for hit & miss . :-? All the other ones in the $100 range that are "untested" are cosmetically banged up.. scratched.. discolouration, cr...

Hey guys. first post. For those who are familiar with the 814. About to buy one from my local craigslist for $129. the camera looks mint, literally brand new, and all the accessories included, with the case... however the craigslist ad says "Doesn't work due to corrosion in the battery case". My qu...

Re: New Nikon R10 owner with some questions..

Hi all, im new to this forum. I recently acquired an R10 in pretty decent condition. The previous owner did not know anything besides "it used to work and now it doesnt". So i decided to take a chance anyhow. The film motor does not seem to work. I have put fresh alkaline batteries and am able to g...

Re: Super 8 on Globe Trekker?

The silver boxy camera used on Globe Trekker is a BRAUN NIZO 801 MACRO Super 8. About $250 on ebay as of early 2018. Very cool looking camera but, really, why waste money on old technology when new technology can duplicate the retro super 8 film look! Why join a Small gauge film forum if you can do...

Re: Nikon R10 power zoom non-functional

Are you referring to the "Power Zoom Speed Control"? Yes, I checked that. And yes, fresh batteries (I resurrected my R8 from a horribly corroded battery holder...) As I said, the film transport motor works fine, which indicates the camera is getting power. The R10 uses the battery pack for both met...

Re: Nikon R10 power zoom non-functional

Hi All, I scored a Nikon R10 this past week. Its meter, film drive mechanism, and battery check appear to work well, but the power zoom is not functioning (in either T or W direction). I also have a Nikon R8 Super, and I'm assuming would work the same as on the R8, but it does not. Does anyone have...

Re: Leicina Special Repair

I was wondering if there’s any updates to the repair of your Leicina. I have one that was working yesterday afternoon but after loading it into my car for a couple hours in cold weather, it just stopped working. Was wondering if the cold weather froze up something in the motor? Or maybe got bumped ...
