  1. Hi Sarah, Welcome to the forum ! What flavour would you like ? Try contacting ON8MIL in London..... https://www.on8mil.com/product-category/8mm-film-packages/standard-8/ Best wishes, John S 😁
  2. Without stating the obvious, you haven't got a light yellow filter on your lens have you ? There won't be any filters in the viewfinder, but bear in mind this is a cheapo camera so I'd imagine the viewfinder optics may not be coated. I had a K3 many years ago and remember the viewfinder image looked on the warm side compared with a Bolex. John S
  3. I remember seeing this post recently ( click on the link's picture to see more photos ) ....... John S 😊
  4. Hi Martin, Many thanks for the information and suggestions. As it happens, I did run a clip test recently and results were light blue and flat contrast - though exposures looked almost 'normal'. I agree, pulling maybe half a stop would improve things but don't want to get into adjusting 1st & col devs just for the odd roll going through on it's own. I did leave the room for a minute, and you'll be happy to hear, didn't get any magenta cast ! .... haa haa haa. After talking to the client, I processed the rest of his roll ( all was ok like the clip test ) which he'll have scanned, so should be able to 'fix up' images to some extent in post. My main worry was, would VNF-1 films change control of my E-6 line...... it's good to hear it won't from the occasional roll. All the best wishes and thanks again, John S
  5. Thanks Dirk, Just sent an email. Best wishes, John S
  6. Hi All, I get the occasional request to process old Ektachromes ( VNF-1 ) which I've always declined. I know results can be poor, so does anyone know if processing a 'minimal' amount of VNF-1 film through an E-6 line will have a sensitometric effect ? Many thanks, John S :wacko:
  7. Hi Dirk, I'm trying to contact you but sending an email bounces back 'undeliverable'. Can you contact me please or give an alternative email address. Many thanks, John S
  8. I've noticed Dirk's website DeJonghe Film Postproduction has been down for the last few days. Anyone know if there's a problem ? John S
  9. I wouldn't have thought it will be too long now Philip ..... a few months perhaps ? I heard 120 ( medium format stills film ) is due out in April. John S :rolleyes:
  10. If you're starting to get out-of-phase pictures, I reckon something's getting loose in the camera's mech. John S
  11. Hi all, I recently had four super 8mm Ektachromes in for processing ( one new 100D 7294 and three 7285 ) with very tight film stuck, unable to run properly ..... and always coming to a halt when trying. The problem it seems is too much pressure from the pressure plate spring. If you push the plate down, you can easily pull film out of the gate - as soon as you release it, it's very tight ( so doesn't seem to be the feed roll ). I've occasionally had this before and wonder if anyone else has experienced this ? I'm also wondering if Kodak's had a bad batch of springs ! John S :(
  12. Super 8mm cartridges are wound emulsion in ( both feed and take up sides ). John S
  13. Yes, Arri made a 'collapsible' two inch core ( bottom of picture ) for take-up, and one inch core adaptors ( top of picture ) for take-off - film on cores ( and take-up using cores ). You have to make sure you remove ( and preferably replace ) the collapsible core before the film went off to the lab otherwise you'd never see it again ! Image taken from Arri SR3 manual John S B)
  14. Contact your nearest lab Tim ! If they expect to receive your films for processing, they'll usually supply cores and cans for free. 16mm 2" cores are used for 400ft camera rolls, whereas 3" and 4" are used for editing and processed rolls and prints. 100ft lengths are normally supplied on 'daylight loading' spools.
