  1. Hi Dave -- thanks for your response. You're right, there isn't a c-mount version of the Duplikin -- I miswrote. What I have is an M42 mount. I'm hoping I can adapt it to the Nikon (without any insurmountable focusing issues) with something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/M42-Lens-F-Mount-Adapt...5QQcmdZViewItem
  2. I have a Century Optics Duplikin II that I was hoping to mount to a Nikon D100. Unfortunately, there are no f-mount to c-mount adapters. Does anyone know how I might be able to make this happen? Thanks, luisa
  3. I'm working on a 16mm project, finishing on print, and trying to explore my options for adding color tone to my prin. The project focuses on the human form so I'm hoping to attain an organic feeling with the color toning. I have a good grasp on going through this process with my B&W footage but am wondering what my options are for color footage. I've considered using various inks or dyes and then sending the film through the optical printer, which is an option, but I'm also wondering what I can do with the timer at the lab. Any suggestions? Or any references for work where this has been done? Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the replies, Rob. I'm sure the Spirit would be out of my budget and I'm planning to finish on film (print TBD at Cinelab). I'll have to talk to Rob T., then (especially easy since I'm an Emerson student). Thanks to everyone else, as well. BB Optics turned out to be a great referral for me.
  5. It was suggested to me that if I rephotograph my exposed, processed Super-8 color negative film onto interpositive stock (using an optical printer), I could have a print made of the film. Is this is accurate?
  6. Sounds like the best way to go is optical printing. I have access to a great optical printer, am meticulous about keeping it clean and have never had any problems with dirt and dust. Higher contrast might be an issue (and might deter me from rephotographing the footage) but grain is quite welcome in the project I'm working on. I do have a question about your suggestion of using internegative. I've done 16mm blow-ups of Super-8 footage on the optical printer using 7212 and it looked great. What is the benefit of using internegative? Also, in answer to a previous question of yours, I'm not not using B&W negative film by choice -- the reversal is something I decided I might like to use in a project after I'd already shot it. Thanks.
  7. Exactly, I'd like to intercut the footage into a 16mm color neg project to be printed in 16mm. Username change on it's way.
  8. Wondering what my options are to get 16mm B&W reversal onto color stock. Is there something I can have done at the lab or should I optically print the footage to color stock? And in that event, what happens to contrast? Thanks for the help.
