  1. I see that kind of lines in footage that comes out of a telecine, but never from a scanner. First. Are you sure that your films runs a scanner and not a telecine?
  2. Hi!! Here is my small black and white stock ready to be shoot. 5600 ft!! As you can see it's a mixed stock, all expired. I've already shot RAR2496, Regiscope and Tri-X with good results. Don't know what could happen with Perutz, Orwo, Svema, Dupont, Tasma or with the oldest one Agfa Wolfen Ultra rapid. You think its crazy to ask the lab 1 stop push with this old stocks? Have you ever use any of this stocks? Any suggestion? Bests!! Andrés
  3. Seems that you don't have the RED codec updated in your mac/pc. Something like that happens to me and downloading the last driver was the solution. Hope it helps!
  4. Send to Film rescue international. I sent time ago a roll like the one you describe and they rescue some images, do not send to other lab than fri!!
  5. As far as I know Kodak RAR 16mm film is a B&W infrared film supposed for aerial photography. Bests!!
  6. Bill, thanks for your lines! I had one diva light on the side, just because the "Minutera" camera needs for exposure. I think about festivals, but the true is that I shot just for the joy of doing it, to have some fun shooting super 8, that I love and wanna keep doing it. Bests!!
  7. Hi guys, I want to share with you my last documentary short, shot on tri-x super 8. MINUTERA Minutera is a reflection about photography, about what we lost. vimeo.com/k3films/minutera Enjoy!
  8. Hi! Ask Olex about this camera, he knows everything about soviet film cameras https://sites.google.com/site/olexserviceskonvas/home
  9. Give a try to Neat: http://www.neatvideo.com/download.html Its for digital video but I tested it with iflm and works good to. Bests!
  10. Hi! Im collecting stock for a new project that will be B&W. Most of the stock I have is 16mm color. Im not a DP by the way. When im start shooting B&W super8 I remember using a yellow filter to "add constrast". Because the final result will be B&W I need to consider some camera filetring? To have better results when turning color to B&W. Because of the low budget the stock will be transfered directly to HD Pro Res, no grading at that step. Bests! Andrés
  11. I was doing some research trying to date the can. Jörg says that could be 1954-64. Wikipedia says the following, interesting part of history brings thta can. On 20 April 1945, following the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, the plant was taken over by US forces and important patents and other documents regarding the Agfacolor process were confiscated and handed over to Western competitors, such as Kodak and Ilford. As the plant was located in what was to become the Soviet zone of occupied Germany, the US forces then handed it over to the Soviet military administration, which dismantled large parts of the plant and moved it, with key German staff, to the Soviet Union, where it formed the basis for the Soviet colour film industry. In 1953 the plant became the property of East Germany, and in a trade agreement settlement, the East German company, VEB Film- und Chemiefaserwerk Agfa Wolfen, was given the right to sell its products under the Agfa brand in Eastern Europe, while the newly re-established Agfa in West German Leverkusen had the right to the name in the rest of the world. As the trade agreement seriously hampered the East German company's abilities to sell in the West, the ORWO trademark (for Original Wolfen) was introduced in 1964. ORWO branded 35mm colour slide film became available in the United Kingdom in the 1970s through magazine advertisements for mail order suppliers. It was a cheaper alternative to the mainstream brands available at the time. Following the merger of East Germany and West Germany, the company was privatised in 1990. After two bankruptcies, a new company, FilmoTec GmbH, was formed in 1998, which continues to manufacture a reduced range of former ORWO products, specialising in cine film. Some products are re-branded and sold by Maco. The cellulose triacetate base manufacturing plant of ORWO was sold to Island Pyrochemical Industries, Mineola, NY. The new company, located in the Chemiepark, Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany, produces high quality TAC (triacetyl cellulose, aka cellulose triacetate) for the LCD polarizer market and the polarized sunglasses market.
