    Grain is determined by the asa of the film stock. 50D has the least amount of grain; while 500 has the most. Reversal film stocks also tend to be grainier. Image steadiness is most affected by film speed. Films shot at high speed for slow motion will be the steadiest..

    Well, there is no longer any film being manufactured with mag-stripe. The adhering process was too environmentally hazardous and was banned in the early 90’s. There are expired Super8mm stocks for sale on eBay. You can get pretty good results with Ektachrome, but stay away from Kodachrome because it can only be processed as B/W. Remember to open the iris one f-stop for every decade of expiration. The alternative is to shoot new color reversal film and have it mag-striped after processing. You may be able to have two stripes put on it for stereo recording with certain stereo projectors.(El
  3. I’ve seen some rods on eBay with a wedge designed specifically for Beaulieu’s.
  4. Oh yeah. That’s it. The moderator is Adrian Cousins. I have learned a ton from these guys.
  5. I would join the FB group: “Home Movie Processing”. The moderator and others are international experts at this. They process color, B/W, negative, reversal, cross process and alternative processing in natural home ingredients. I myself have developed B/W negative in Caffenol: Ground coffee and vitamin C powder. They can answer all your questions.
  6. Well, there is no B/W on spools for reloading. Pro8mm just started selling Super8mm Ektachrome 100D and Vision3 50D on 200 foot daylight spools. It is about $150 for the 50D and $175 for the Ektachrome.
  7. Very interesting and informative article. It looks as though you can buy these stocks in the U.S. through “The Film Photography Project.” I shoot D8mm; full width; in my modified Bolex Ultrapan8mm widescreen camera.
  8. Have you considered Doublesuper8mm? Pro8mm has been getting bulk orders from Kodak. The Bolex, Canon and some other cameras are really well made and seem to be selling for around $600-$700. The advantage in buying/processing 100 foot rolls is you get 200 feet of Super8mm film for much, much less than you would four Super8mm carts. These cameras also have real metal film pressure plates and some have c mount lens brackets. Some of the Russian cameras can be quite good and can be purchased very cheaply.
  9. So, you like experimentation? Have I got the camera for you!!! Have you ever heard of Ultra-pan8? The format uses the entire width of Reg8mm film to shoot a widescreen image that is around 2.8-1. That’s right: Wider than CinemaScope. The UP8 camera is a hybrid between a Bolex Reg8mm reflex and a Bolex 16mm reflex. It has a Reg8mm frame pulldown; but a 16mm image width. Canadian Nick Kovats initiated the format. Canadian Jean-Louis Seguin(The Bolex master) does the conversions. You can find him via his Facebook page. I have camera #5 and my friend; a Hollywood animator; just sent in h
  10. Well, a neutral density filter is useful when you think you have too much light and don’t want to overexpose the film. 50D has at least 2 f-stops of exposure latitude either way; but you may need a bright, sunny day for proper exposure with this stock. Reversal films; such as Ektachrome, Plus-X or Tr-X have less exposure latitude. Usually around 1/2 an f-stop. A ND filter could be really useful here; but you could also shoot in slow motion to get a faster shutter speed. Another reason to use ND filters is to open the aperture wider for shallow depth of field. There are varying degrees o
  11. Well, he needs spools with round holes; so the solution is to buy them on eBay. Lots of em.
  12. Also there are daylight spools; with round spindle holes; on eBay.
  13. I just looked at a Bolex H-8 online and they do have round camera spindles. A friend of mine borrowed my Bolex UltraPan 8 Camera; so I can't look at it. The daylight spool that I shot that 2x8mm Cinechrome does have square holes.
  14. Well, I have a specially modified Bolex that shoots a 2.8-1 image on 2x8mm film; it's not split and I show it on a specially modified 2.8-1 16mm projector. I get my unsplit 2x8mm film back from the lab on the original daylight spool; which is a 100 foot 2x8mm daylight spool. It does have square spindle holes in the spool. I don't know why yours has round spindles/holes.
  15. There is a 25ft regular8mm spool on eBay for $7.95. I really don’t think there is a difference between 100 foot 16mm and regular8mm daylight spools. I shot regular 8mm reversal and did not have it split; had it returned on a 16mm spool and was able to project it on a 16mm projector. I’m thinking they’re the same spool.
