Pan Cinor Lens filtering effect?

Hi, Been using a Pan Cinor zoom lens (17mm-85mm) on a Bolex H16 and metering it with a handheld light meter, a Lunasix https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3229/2799995173_5319b01b11.jpg Film I've been using is (fast running out) 7285 Ektachrome (asa100) http://www.yalefilmandvideo.com/img/7285%20VI.JPG . ...

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

Always thought Empire State was a sort of pun on the concept of the 'movie' - a medium which defines itself by capturing movement, and so you mount a movie camera on a tripod and film something that is static. So conceptual art, yes. I haven't sat through it.

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

At the end of the day a film image is more interesting than a digital video image because there is more going on, the film image isn't static, even when viewing something like Warhol's 'Empire State' where very little happens, the surface of the filmic image seems alive and moving, it is a 'movie', ...

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

There are many aspects of 'film' that digital media (or even analogue video) miss. For me it's several things, the atmosphere of film, the surface quality of a print (which deteriorates over time) and the sheer magic which is photographic emulsion. You can't do that digitally. Can't do it because vi...

Re: E6 Times?

Found the thread, was courtesy of Richard down under ;) if using tetenal chemistry, 1 litre can process 5 rolls. Each roll will have different first dev, second dev and blix times. The tetenal booklet that comes with the film will provide enough info to work out these times. They will be something l...

Thanks, well I thought timings were pretty critical - especially for colour technology?

E6 Times?

Hi, Have posted this in the past but can't find the thread :-o so am re-posting the question, just to be on the safe side. I have two 50' lots of 16mm Kodak Ektachrome 7285 (asa100) to develop. The last advice I had was First Developer time: 6',15" with second processing time at 6',20" and so forth....

if you are videoing onto the film gate you shouldn't need a very bright light source, that would also give your transfer 'hot spots'.

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

Thanks!! The bellows front element controls the focus, and the sliding baseplate that the camera is mounted to effects the zoom. I used to have a two directional setup for a while that the whole rail system was attached to, which allowed control towards and away from the film plane (zoom) as well a...

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

Looks nice :) like the bellows on the cam, does that function as a zoom here? The Eiki has a roomy lamphouse which must be a boon ;)

Re: DIY Flm Scanning

Frame-by-frame capture? Folks do that, the Edwardian Turner film experiment was finally realised by way of single frame imagery set in motion on a computer. It's a great shame they didn't attempt the experiment in real time however, we may never know if Turner's experiment had a hope of working on t...

Re: Foma 100 filming in 90 degrees of heat?

Here at length is the footage. If anything it's slightly under exposed. I wonder why this is? Is it that the colossal zoom lens on the K-3 eats up light up compared with my hand-held light meter which just meters raw, ambient luminance?
