These stickers are really only for display. Nobody working in the processing of post is giving a sheit and it will be scanned anyway when things are set to be scanned. It would be something if that could be prevented just by using a sticker. All contrabande shippers would do the same.

Re: Iscomorphot S8 / 2x

Are all projection lenses like these also suitable for filming?

I have one but there is little to go about unless one can film your own beach scenes.
Make one wonder if it would work for a MINOX 8x11 too :)

Or is it more common to watch El Cid in cinemascope from super-8?

Re: The State of Double Super 8

Posted tests by Pro8mm are on Vision materials... Listed prices aren't that bad considering it is all in :) S8 filming has become terribly expensive :( Curious enough people want to shoot those films in untested flea-market finds with the price of a filter or a lenscover :) Let's see what comes of i...

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Traditionally reversal film has been more expensive than negative film. Negative film is a simpler film. Reversal film is effectively a negative and positive film layered on top of each other. Although Tri-X is a reversal film being black and white means it only has 2 active layers compared to nega...

Re: Gauge Film - times slots?

What a millennial bureaucrat. What could possibly be the problem to process film when they come in when the chemistry is still good? Or are we to believe that all is done in one day after the deadline?

Re: The State of Double Super 8

Dennis Toeppen placed a special order with Kodak for unperforated 16mm V3 and Tri-X in 2015. At that time a minimum order was about $28000. He posted several times regarding the subject. He had the unperforated film perforated and packaged by Wittner. He was selling 25ft for about $45.00 That was t...

Re: Yet another DIY film scanner project (again.)

What software do you use to cut the frames from the exposed image and how do you bring these into one playable file?

Re: The State of Double Super 8

It is new. Its state of maintenance cannot be determined from the photo :)

Do they still use it as it all has been simplified and the product range has been thinned out?

Re: Beaulieu Service

The 7008 pro II is a modified camera from Pro8mm. It didn't come from Beaulieu like that.
Unfortunately pro8mm is known for its pro pricing :)

Aren't the Foma kits 6x300ml?

To test what the minimum quantity is, just pour in water until the reel is completely under. Drain it and measure it.

The same for two spirals in one go.
8x300ml :)

Re: Where can you buy positive 16mm color film?

Where is Ferrania? I sent several $100 as kickstarter. No news in several months. Very quiet! I doubt color reversal will be forth coming. Kodak has been promising color reversal for several years. The latest was color in early summer. Well summer is just around the corner and no sign of color Ekta...

Re: sony wmd6c Gebuhrmultisyn

Oh, really, it costs so much! It must be a great quality! I use a Philips cassette recorder (I also like sound of audiocassette) connected to the Fujica ZC1000 with the cable that produced the Fuji itself. The recorder starts and stops with the release button of the camera, but the lip sync is a di...

Re: Reloading single-8 carts with super-8

If Charles still has the original files he could just share them with filmshooting or filmkorn who likely will host it for the love of it. How difficult could it be to have the files put on a USB stick or to have them uploaded to dropbox or something :) Rather than have other people spend their time...
