Re: Fomapan DS8mm 100ft rolls USA

ONe would assume that any factory would glad to supply film by the pallet-load. Was it only the paperwork or is this air-lifting the troublemaker? I.e it might work better if things were shipped per sea-container. Spending a few months on transfertime would be that bad when there is a steady flow.

Re: Another Pass the cart project?

It were better mentioned in the generic forum. These theme fora get very little attention. One might wonder how many real S8 filmers still keep track of the forum here. I didn't participate in the original projects. I noticed in the reports there were many sloppy/lazy bum participants who took forev...

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

I never used BW from Ferrania. Old dudes who did use it never seem to cease on this silverrich BW material. Elsewhere this rich emulsion is a de-luxe edition. See what it looks like. It gives Ferrania an opportunity to operate the machines and gain hours in experience while making some money hopeful...

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

I'm thinking about getting one once I learn how to cut my own gears. Cut or print? There is a firm here who has specialised on 3D printing gears for ciné equipment :) Of course fixing your own is far more educational but when in a hurry... Oh yeah, who's that? Been trying to find pictures of a d...

Re: Kodak Ektasound 140 and silent Super 8 film

Super-8 Sound cameras can take and run silent cartridges without trouble. The recoding head and capstan-drive are then uncovered and unused. No trouble there. The capstan doesn't rotate to save on the batteries. There are no sound cartridges avaible for some 25 years. :( Only expired ones which coul...

Re: kahl film in UK

For some reason Kalhl doesn't favour selling outside Germany.

Enquiry with http://www.egglab.co.uk/contact/ doesn't bring anything?

Seems like a creative company who might possibly have taken up a side-business of reselling film.
It is odd to keep it secret though :)

Thank you :)

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

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...
