Re: Any of you guys have your own water distiller?

Thank you :)

Another option could be to collect rainwater, filter it for particles or leaves and on with it :)

Re: Any of you guys have your own water distiller?

I have distilled water myself right now at the house if I would just get in the car and drive home. doesn't matter if it is 2am Why post the question then? BTW You can't win anything with machine and paying for the wasted energy. 5 liter containers are already so low in price. Otherwise try barrels...

Re: Should I shoot with a Regular 8 Sankyo 8-CM camera?

If it seems to run fine that is as good as it gets without using actual film. Test its running with some old film if you have that. See if it is powerful enough and doesn't stall or lock. Best to use Fomapan Reversal. Depending were you are get it from local supply or www.fomafoto.com Processing bes...

Re: Kodak rumors - new film stocks and hardware

Wasn't stabilty the main advantage of the Logmar design which is the basis for the Kodak cameras?

Re: Anyone here own a Leicina Special?...

[possibly there are even more cameras with the little ramps :) I know the R8 an dR10 do have them. So does the Nikon 8x Super Zoom and the Minolta D10. Clearly Japanese designers and engineers then already had a clear understanding and insight of the working and troubles of super-8 cartridges. This...

It certainly looks beautiful!

Good specifications and I am glad it has 'haptic touch' :)

Re: Anyone here own a Leicina Special?...

Considering OP, the camera doesn't have a registration pin or anything else 'special' in its gate design. I think there were a number of posts in the past on this forum by Santo arguing that the construction of the Leicina gate was such that minimal friction would affect the film passing through th...

Re: Hand crank for Fujica ZC 1000

The crank is a shared accessoirie with the Z800 (if I remember correctly).
Its mainly used is with expertimental work or stop motion/animation.

The main concern is to have a lenscover on when doing transport, one way or the other :) As with other reversing cameras like Beaulieu 6008 and Nikon R10

Re: Fomapan redux

Let us cite the Internet. The world is flat, nobody went to the moon and JFK wasn't murdered by Lee Harvey Oswald. Other fun findings from the Internet, supposedly Nikon wasn't capable of setting the exposure system on the F90s propeply and the autofocus on the F100 was off too. People at home coul...

Re: Fomapan redux

Thanks for your nice words, André. It's not normal to process several rolls of the same film on the same soup at the same time and get very different results. In fact, I'm not the only one detecting big inconsistencies and defects between Fomapan R100 batches. You can find plenty online (take a ...

Re: Fomapan redux

Yes, David. Lab work is important. But I've processed two rolls of Fomapan on the same soup at the same time and results were quite different between the two. Being a Fomapan lover myself, I always thought that it would be preferable to raise the prices a bit and make a quality controlled product. ...
