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...

Runs like a dream thanks - if only I could calibrate the lens to the hand-held light meter i'd be in 7th heaven :)

Re: Pan Cinor Lens filtering effect?

Gonna do a test - burn some footage - should have done this ages ago but moving home has interrupted all sorts of projects. Found some old cine literature on Google Books which suggest that the more optics in a lens, the more light is gobbled up. By my results so far I guesstimate the Pan-Cinor is l...

Re: H16 pressure plate removal?

The locking pin is at the top, you pull the pin up and you can swing the gate backwards. At the bottom where it is hinged it has a little knurled knob you unscrew (might be chrome). Once that is unscrewed you should be able to pull the gate up off its hinge. If it doesn't come out easy you may have...

Re: H16 pressure plate removal?

Found this at 2:26 https://youtu.be/IKWLJHHy6YA Any do's or dont's please? One video had a guy puffing away at the open pressure plate to 'clear dust' right up into the optics one presumes?

Thanks,

When? Re: Ferrania production start-up

Waiting on the edge of my chair for news of this venture - they promised 'Spring 2015' for emulsion to hit the stores [vernal equinox has come & gone] so what's happening please? What's the situation with Ferrania 16mm?

Hi, Want to clean the pressure plate on my H16. Can see there is a locking pin but what happens afterwards please? There are so many warnings on the net about possible damage to the mechanism by incorrect procedures I thought I better as here first :-o Curiously, I couldn't find any youtube tutorial...

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...
