  1. Rest In Power, Bernie. He made laugh every time that I spoke with him on the phone. His wisdom and candor lives on, beyond his passing.
  2. The processing issue may be lab dependant. 2 weeks ago, I processed FUJI 160T VIVID 35mm at Kodak Lab Atlanta with no issues.
  3. Now that's more like it, bubba. 😉
  4. Yes. To rid the lenses of any minute mold growth, take them outside on a sunny day at 12 noon. Place them on the ground with the front element facing the sky. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Reverse the lens so the rear element faces the sky for 15 minutes. This helps, but careful, dry storage is the best for keeping mold out. Contact Bernie at www.super16inc.com or cinemaengineering.com to have the camera bodies and magazines serviced.
  5. Hang on there, bubba. My list membership goes back to 2004. https://flic.kr/p/2kUHj1V
  6. Check out konvas.org, join the list serv. This is 20 years of Konvas/Kinor information in that group. It's run by Adam Frey. He is very helpful, can answer many Konvas questions for you.
  7. 3/8" to 1/4" Tripod Thread Adapter is what you need to use Konvas/Kinor cameras with standard tripods and camera baseplates.
  8. Dennis, Thanks for sharing this useful bit of information. I shoot with my film cameras in national parks and have been approached about permits by park personnel. This new court ruling should alleviate most of the unnecessary pestering.
  9. Wooden Camera Zip Box Mattebox Fits lenses with a 90-95mm front diameter. Never used. $52.00 shipping included for domestic U.S. addresses.
  10. The first theatrical application of this technique that I remember, us from the movie 'THE SCORE'(2001) directed by Frank Oz and photographed by Rob Hahn. There is an American Cinematographer issue from the summer 2001 covering the production. Hahn's motivation was the shadowy world of thievery the main characters occupied. The small mirror technique is used throughout the film, but is most obvious in the scene at the indoor swimming pool. https://flic.kr/p/2ka1Qfy https://flic.kr/p/2ka2d7W
  11. FUJI Eterna 35mm Panavision Primo Anamorphic Lenses https://vimeo.com/karandirects/hardhat 2perf 35mm KODAK 5219 https://vimeo.com/128531300 16mm KODAK high speed cameras NASA launch footage https://vimeo.com/4366695
  12. @Joshua Go for it. Take the leap. @Matthew Dude, you've got moxie. Grandpops would be proud. Those month-to-month joints have oodles of characters and stories around them. We now occupy an alterverse from the world we occupied a year ago. Build your 'FIELD OF DREAMS', while slanging beer and peanuts at the Dodgers games. Ya dig? People still need crews, the world is still thirsty for originality. Carry on.
  13. Stephen, I hand picked a few from the SHOT ON FILM channel that really shine: A Man of Enterprise (shot on Kodak 7285 Ektachrome 16mm) : The Peninsula Shanghai (shot on FUJI 400T) HURRY UP AND WAIT (5219 3perf): IN YOUR HANDS(35mm and Super 8mm):
  14. Stephen, There is a channel on Vimeo with nearly 1500 clips shot on film. 2perf 35mm , anamorphic, 65mm, Super 8mm and 16mm. The latest clip features a short documentary about Jean-Pierre Beauviala. The channel is SHOT ON FILM https://vimeo.com/channels/149193 Enjoy!
  15. That really is shocking that there isn't a decent IMAX venue open or a 70mm print screening within 700 miles of Los Angeles. I have tickets for the 70mm show in Atlanta and I'm excited. The projectionist is the same guy that operated the 70mm platter for THE HATEFUL EIGHT. He's also a skilled telecine operator/colorist and 35mm print collector, so the 70mm print is in good hands.
