  1. Hi Pablo, nice to hear about my old camera :) Besides this Canon zoom, I have got for sale only Zeiss 10-100mm T2, which is not that long as you might need, but it is a cheap lens (1200) 2X TC for this Zeiss zoom (Mutar) is also not hard to find. If you want something really long - Optex has made some Super16 zooms (as conversion from B4) with long end around 210mm, try google it.
  2. I have got for sale Canon 7-63mm T2.6 zoom lens for Super16 features: - PL mount - covers Super16 - 95mm front diameter - close focus 0,6m - sharp even wide open - weight 2.0 kg included: 100% condition Chrosziel zoom damper lens support ring metal shipping case Lens is located in Bratislava, Slovakia, Europe PRICE: 2800 € GALLERY: https://goo.gl/photos/j9baS4to55we48TY9
  3. I have got for sale Canon 7-63mm T2.6 It´s wider brother of that Canon, with better-controlled breathing, and closer minimum focus distance. PM me, if you are interested. I´m from Slovakia, Europe. https://goo.gl/photos/j9baS4to55we48TY9
  4. Hi guys, do you know, if it is OK to send 35mm film to lab without a film core ? I have used Arri SRs, so all my 16mm work had no cores, but I wonder, if it is the same for 35mm stuff. Because there are only a few magazine types with collapsible core. The last I remember is 400ft for Arri 35-3. Thanks.
  5. In first 34 seconds, I would say, you´ve got short loop in loading - that is the thing Aatons don´t like - so jitter is caused by that. But the rest, from 35 till end, is really out of sync shutter. And I don´t understand how can be that done. Shutter and pull-down claw are mechanically connected with main axle from motor, so you can´t move them out of sync by yourself. Maybe try to shoot another short test, with a little bit bigger loop, and you will see.
  6. Hi, I´m using set of Sony Cine Alta 4k primes on Arriflex 435 with great results. They are T2 lenses in whole range and extremely sharp wide open, so pairing with lower sensitivity film stock is very nice.
  7. Now, in digital days, it´s maybe good to start with cheap Canon 5D mk.II and three fix-focal lenses and a set of ND´s. You can buy it for 1000 dollars, and start to shoot. Shoot, edit, project and hear the critics. Then repeat. And then, if you want to move to shooting on film, one or two years later, you can buy cheap 16mm camera and start to learn that craft. Digital is great for beginners, but I would stay away from iPhone (however it is a great tool), but something like 5D with manual control over everything, is import for understanding and developing your skills as filmmaker. Even if you would like to be director, you should understand basic technical and visual principles.
  8. Hi, a small film lab Bonton in Zlín, Czech Republic is still doing negative / positive development in 35/16 and also contact printing. They dont have good website, but they work on daily basys. For example - every wednesday they are developing ECN2 films 😉 They offer Arrilaser, but no scanning service. http://www.bonton.cz/film-laboratories.html
  9. I keep my film always at -18 degrees Celsius. I've been told by the most expert for film postproduction in our country, that in those temperatures, the aging of emulsion is so slow, almost negligible. When I want to use it, I simply put stock from fridge to refrigerator for one day (when I have time ahead), or in emergency situations I just put in on a desk (+20 degrees Celsius) for a 2 hours a then load the magazine. I have done this procedure many times and never have any issues with frozen gelatin or whatsoever. I have stored exposed stock in refrigerator for a couple of weeks (6-8) and scanned image has been great! No lack of contrast, or anything. Also old stock is fully usable, just overexpose it a bit. I use to rate fresh new stock 1/2 EV slower (for better saturation), 2-4 years old stock 1 EV slower, and even older stock about 1 and 1/2 EV slower. Film stock can easily handle overexposure. I've seen accidentally overexposed whole roll of fresh stock by 2 EV stops (wrong rating in exposure meter), and nobody in scanning room can see the difference from other rolls of project. Nothing was blown away. So don't be afraid of older stock, just rate is slower and give it a lot of light.
  10. Hi there, I have got one D21 too and I love this little camera! Optical viewfinder with Arriglow is absolutely fantastic thing. You can even follow focus with it easily. What I like is how good white balance system works - camera is in changing temperature (like from -5 to +25 Celsius), there is infrared polution, sun is changing - you just hit 5600k and it still looks, as it should look like! Although, we all know it is not just fixed at 5600k, but it is constantly shifting a little bit. I don't know how it's done WB in Alexa, but on RED's and Blackmagic's cameras it definitely don't works like that. The dynamic range (10 stops) and ASA 200 is a little drawback in 2017. And with sensitivity, for day exterior I rate it as 200, but for interior I use 125 or 100 rating for better noise floor. Have anyone used anamorphic viewfinder with the camera ? I'm trying to buy one for years, but that thing is no-one selling. I don't know, if it's the same viewfinder as for 535 (Arri AVF-1), or it is some special piece ? Also I can't attach optical videoassit from my 435, there is some small missing piece to connect video camera (attached to the viewfinder system), to the side unit (Arri IVS-1), could someone help me with these ?
