  1. Hello Aaron, Can I ask who did your conversion and at what price? Thanks! Roy
  2. Hi, As it says, looking to purchase 35mm Arri III, four perf, PL mount. With CE base, a couple of magazines, no video assist needed. Already in contact with Visual Products, looking for other resellers. Thanks! Roy in Montreal
  3. Thank you, Dom. Thank you, Joel. I'm heading into my work space later this afternoon and will take a closer look. My hunch is they are f-stops. As they are Soviet made, I am not sure if I can easily find the t-stop online. I'll check. Am I correct in recalling that t-stops are generally marked in red, while f-stops are marked in white? And if so, did the Soviet artisans making these lenses follow that convention? Thank you, again! Roy
  4. Hi, I have the famous NAS 35 Lomo anamorphic two-piece set. I have the 50 and 75 spherical with a square anamorphic block. The f-stops are indicated on the spherical lens. I want to shoot with the spherical lenses without the square front, but I am wondering if the f-stop markings take into account the loss of light due to all the glass on the square block. Thus, shooting without the square front would make the f-stop markings inaccurate. Does that make sense? Does anyone have any insight. I can shoot a test. most likely the best idea. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or experience. I had the lenses serviced by Bernie at Super16 and would like to use them. Thanks! Roy
  5. The lab I contacted about ORWO TF12d noted that Orwo is notoriously slow to deliver or respond. It could take months, they said, to get an order. The lab known to have used ST9 in the past no longer uses it. I am now seeking an ST9 supplier. If anyone has a suggestion, I am all ears! Many thanks! Roy
  6. Super! I was planning to use a caffenol recipe. Thank you so much for your input and suggestions! Really helps.
  7. Ah, good to know! Clever! What ASA did you rate that ST9 at for shooting? Scanning and timing is a real art form. Given the ridiculous possibilities of digital imaging tools, there must be a setting that can help reduce that highlight pumping. I have tried many things in the processing and exposure to help avoid it without much luck. Thank you for your suggestions! Roy
  8. Thanks! I emailed them this afternoon!
  9. Super, Aapo! I think I have seen that ST9 link. There is a watermark in the bottom right corner. I suspect that is Agfas method of discouraging people from shooting. I think I recognize the Morse tank process on that footage, the pumping in the highlights. I'll try Frank's suggestion as well for the ORWO TF12d. The great thing about the 2374 was I could rate it at 80 ASA and shoot easily outside with it. The ST9 is most likely rated at 6 or 8 ASA. Any guess on what the ASA might fall at with ORWO TF12d ?
  10. Thank you, Charles. I considered Orwo, but I can't get anyone to return my calls or emails at the North American coordinates. I spoke to Niagara and they confirmed that communication with Orwo is spotty. Thank you for the lesson in edge printing. I thought it was just a spiteful action on Kodak's part to dissuade people from using it as camera stock. 🙂
