  1. I use Nikkor AI-S lenses all the time via an Nikon F to Aaton adapter. All the lenses work flawlessly with no issues. I have never noticed any "ghosting", but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. With some modern Nikon lenses, the fit is very tight.
  2. Or 3 perf. All three choices will work. With 4 perf and 3 perf you are using the exact same image area. With 2 perf it is a little smaller for 2.35.
  3. What is your budget?? There are many options available. Here is one https://www.moviestuff.tv/moviestuff_universal_mark_ii_series.html
  4. Hi, I have recently read online that if I do not have identical GPUs in my Mac Pro 5.1, Davinci Resolve will only use the lesser of the two. I currently have a 8GB Radeon RX 580 for resolve and a NVidia GTX 640 4gb for my gui. Within my preferences, the GTX 640 says GUI only. Despite this, people have stated online that GUI only selected does not matter. My Radeon is not flashed, but I will pull the GTX and go it alone with the Radeon if it will be a boost in performance. Does anybody have a definitive answer?
  5. The film cartridge that you will use is a one time use cartridge only. As is all film. You send the film to a lab to be processed and scanned. They will send you the film back and a HDD/SSD or USB stick with your footage in a video or data format of your choosing. Some labs also will post the scanned files to a cloud for you to download via the internet.
  6. I think the issue lyes with the SSD's. I ended up reformatting them on my laptop. MacBook Pro, as FAT 32 and then insert them into the Gemini. It then in turn wants to reformat, which I allow and all is good. The problem has happened twice. The footage that it shoots when it starts to wild record, is all there and can be recovered if you don't reformat. The problem is more of a nuisance but I would welcome any other feedback if anyone else has experienced this.
  7. Yes, Resolve can. You can scale the image so it fills the frame. People may also put the footage through a Teranex. I have found that uncompressed 2k or 3k footage can upscale very nicely.
  8. Great work! Bummer about the cart. It does happen. I have had better luck using the Kodak branded carts.
  9. Hunts Photo and Video, at least the one in Melrose, carries 100 foot daylight spools of 16mm.
  10. This is true, however it is very easy and cheap to build a system that plays back 2k DPX in real time for finishing. UHD or 4k DCI is MUCH more demanding, but HD or 2k is no biggie.
  11. I sent the payment. If there are any other charges, let me know so I can pay those. Thanks again

  12. Yes they do. Some may change at longer foical length, but none come to mind. Have you been to www.super8wiki.com ? Check it out for specs on pretty much every super 8 camera ever made. Including the Logmar and new Kodak camera. I believe your cameras are a constant aperture throughout the entire zoom range. Wide open zoomed all the way out looks great. a lot like 16mm
  13. On Netflix, check out The Other Side of The Wind and then the companion resurrection documentary, They'll love me When I am Dead, for a great night/car/rain/sex scene. Gary Graver shot it poor man style with great results. The scene was shot over several years in different countries. You would never know. The doc has lots of behind the scenes stuff and shows Orson Welles brilliance in crafting the scene. Very low tech. Garden hoses, PA's moving lights, completely convincing.
