Dust in the gate?

Hi,

If I had dust in the gate of my Bolex H16, would I see it by looking through the default prism viewfinder - using a lens with a wide open diaphragm please? Normally I use a dog-leg zoom, so would see nothing except what the lens sees.

Thanks

Re: processing labs in UK

Sorry to open an old thread. The No.w.here film lab is being bullied out of existence by current austerity measures :(

Re: Lomo tank processing

I developed a cartridge of Tri X with the Foma kit. It came out fine. I followed the Foma instructions regarding the timing of each process. Are you sure that Foma have stopped production of film or is it just a hiatus? Thanks, it was indeed a hiatus - within 12 hours I had an order on the way from...

Re: Lomo tank processing

Any heads-up on this? Fomapan b/w cine film is now suddenly off the shelves - I had no idea there was a problem - this came swifter than the demise of reversal colour film. So I am looking with desperation at some Tri-X but my only choice for home processing is the Foma kit - unless that has gone we...

Thanks, fingers crossed - mind you, I still have a 1 litre box ready for my last ektachrome, waiting to be multiple exposed ;)

Tetenal E6

This is bad news for people like me who develop using 1 litre of E6. The price for a litre is now quite steep - haven't even dared to look at what the price hike will be for over double the amount, which I can't use anyway :( https://www.silverprint.co.uk/tetenal-colortec-c41-and-e6-processing-kit-c...

They may well find themselves crying in their beer if Film Ferrania take off. No filming for me today however - you can depend on summer bank holiday weather for that :(

Re: 100 d kodak on ebay ?

Fortunately, these delays have cost them nothing -- renovation of the factory is paid for by the regional authorities That's true but they still have saleries to cover and inputs. Probably because of this they won't be back in the factory until September when everything should be ready for the prod...

Re: 100 d kodak on ebay ?

Ferrania - the question is 'when', then to worry about how much? Ferrania motion film was supposed to be hitting the shelves for retai this spring, we are now entering autumn. Any ideas please?

Thanks.

Re: Pan Cinor Lens filtering effect?

Results have been alright, if imperfect - it's taken ages because I moved home, but the last shoot trialled both the H16 and the Pan CInor. It's fine tuning now. Things keep going pear-shaped, I practiced with the cable release but out in the open I couldn't sort it, it kept falling off, so I manage...

Re: Pan Cinor Lens filtering effect?

Presumably this is the lens with dogleg finder ? Mine doesn't absorb more than about 0.8 of a stop. In fact if you look at the f2 mark it gives the T-stop as 2.66 (in red) ? Maybe there is something amiss with the iris blades, or is the aperture ring not lining up properly ? Thanks, you're right. I...
