Re: Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Movie Reels to Digital MovieMa

It is about the same thing as discussed half a year ago.

These slide scanners with S8 are offered by the sea-container load at Alibaba.
Mind the prices there! Even at small quantities. And there are other such devices.

Re: Diversification at Bolex

It is just a curious other use of the name. Bolex for bowl cleaners isn't that odd. It is not the end of Bolex camera or such. In Europe brands are limited to their own markets. There are winechateau of Beaulieu. Boxing gloves and what more. And of course the camerabrand is still there although owne...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

Maybe I was able, I'm afraid of not being able to do so well in the dark, and then use a precarious cartridge (risk of breakage, film block, scratches, etc.). If there is someone who does interests me very much! Gabe: what Single 8 camera that you have? :) Preparing the housing can be done in dayli...

Re: Fomapan in Super 8 cartridges?

I have been splitting my own Fomapan DS8 30 meters into 4 x S8 15 meters for years :)

I was just curious what the offer is.

Re: Could use a little help processing film as reversal.

I would think 'time' is a better friend than a 'beater' :) Just give it some time to dissolve. Mechanical mixing will cause a lot of turbulence and even bubbles thus exposing the liquid to a lot more oxygen than when it would have been left alone a while. I would recommend to prepare the baths a day...

Re: No news from Ferrania is not good.

Seems your posts are only about complaining about Ferrania or other companies. Barely ever something useful to others is presented. BTW Kickstarter funding is risk bearing. It only leads to promiss and not to an entitlement. When Ferrania produces masterrolls it may prove an undertaking in itself to...

Re: Pro8 Fuji S8

Here is some discussion about ordering. It is unclear if processing is included outside Japan. Mr Tak is confident that EU or German consumer laws do not apply to his selling to EU. http://www.filmvorfuehrer.de/topic/24075-neuer-provia-in-s8/ I don't think anybody has taken receipt of delivery.

Re: Could use a little help processing film as reversal.

Nice! So you don't return the fluids to bottles for longer term storage but just use lids for your tubs? When I do the tub method I worry about the cracks around the bathroom door letting in a little light, or the shower curtain that seems to very slightly glow in the dark. Do you ever have problem...

Re: a rare processing tank

Interesting. Curious how the film must be fed in and how it does not appear to be held in the groove by anything other than the curl and gravity.

It is a bit bigger than it may appear from looking at the first images :)

Re: Fuji Provia at Pro8

Here is some info and sample footage:
https://vimeo.com/164822714

It looks nice enough.

Curious to spend such little effort and imagination on such important test images.
A tripod is too much trouble too?

Only $80 incl processing for a beta test roll.
That should make filmers flock :)

Re: Battery of Beaulieu 4008 ZM 2 NOW

You can do it yourself. Disassemble the old battery--this is by far the hardest part, you will need some sort of spanner tool. If you have the 250mAh version of the dead battery you can recell with six 2/3 size AAA NiMh, the 1000mAh can be recelled with full size AAA. Connect all cells in serial an...

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

It can't be that bad. Everybody would return it immediately.
Tak sent you a broken one, fallen form the top shelf.
