  1. Hi there- A c-mount's ffd is 17.52mm, a PL is 52mm, so even with the 8mm set-in described in the (somewhat misleading) ad, a c-mount lens would still be sitting way too far out from the film plane to get infinity focus. It would be fine for extreme macro shots of bugs, I guess...
  2. Hi There- I peeked at mine and don't even see 2 wires in there- just a light blue-insulated one the clamps in where your gray one is, there isn't a second (black-sheathed) wire in sight. Do you have the XLR power-in conversion on yours? maybe it's part of the ground?
  3. Hi There- Is the bicarbonate powder just baking soda or something else? Where do you get it? Agitation or just let it sit? I occasionally do slop tests of ECN in HC110 and would love to have an easier way to remove the rem-jet!
  4. Wow, 6 units for a $few!

    I spent years building an overhead servo motor tracking camera system, 5x20 ft travel with the film running down a 3" tube to the tabletop, a "Cunningham" US Army WWII 35mm pin registered cast soft magnizum movement, with lens it was not a lot bigger than your fist. Max shutter time on those movements was about 120degrees, but battles were foug...

  5. I've just listed a GOKO RM-8008 on the 'bay if anyone is interested. This is a rockin' cool Super-8 editor, probably the best one ever made. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260793863158#ht_761wt_1141 Thanks for taking a look.
  6. Hi- I've got a 25mm Cooke Speed Panchro up on the 'bay right now that was a great, sharp lens. The "General Scientific" lenses (I've got one of their teles) are also sharp and solidly built. All of those Eyemo lenses are so old that you pretty much have to look at each one on a case-by-case basis.
  7. Hi All- I just threw this up on the 'bay, it's a very nice Eyemo that has been converted to accept Mitchell 35mm mags, and has an AC motor with speeds of 12, 18, 24 and 48fps, and even better has a variable shutter, 0 to 160-degrees, set manually from an access hole in the front turret. http://cgi.ebay.com/EYEMO-35MM-Traid-Mitchell-conversion-VARIABLE-SHUTTER-/260741751980?pt=Film_Cameras&hash=item3cb56b64ac#ht_761wt_1141 It's quite a nice camera but I just haven't used it other than for a few tests, and it's time for some spring cleaning. PM me or post here (or ebay) if you have any questions about it. Thanks Patrick
  8. Hi- I've been using 2 FloLight panels for the last year and they are great- rugged and very versatile. I also carry a bunch of those little white rechargeable "home security" led lights from Costco ($20 for 2-pack) and other than a slight green spike they are also great. Stick a piece of velcro on the back and you can put them anywhere, they are quite bright and have two power level settings and last forever on a charge. A friend has a couple lowell blenders and sorry to say those things are awful. Cheaply made, flicker like crazy every time I've tried to use them, and the battery holder is a disaster. A good idea not well executed.
  9. Just needling :) But I'm a person who really enjoys messing with this organic stuff while it's still around to be messed with. Digital isn't nearly as satisfying in that way.
  10. Just out of random curiosity, what happens to all of that remjet sludge; just down the drain or is it managed differently?
  11. Yes you wouldn't want to actually have fun experimenting or just messing with stuff to see if anything interesting results.
  12. Hi- I do this every so often for quick slop tests, usually to check focus of an old lens or some other simple camera test. I've been souping the color neg clips in HC110 (dilution H) @68 for 9:30 and they form a decent, though grainy image that just needs a bit of contrast oomph in photoshop. The rem jet is horrible to deal with, it gets all over everything, and I don't make a huge effort to wipe it all off the film so it leaves interesting streaks and skid marks.
  13. well then I must be the only person to ever shoot 1.85 with S35...
