  1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/284100888591 *** Zeiss Superspeed MKI Distagon Kit: 1 - Zeiss Superspeed MKI 9.5mm T1.3 1 - Zeiss Superspeed MKI 12mm T1.3 1 - Zeiss Superspeed MKI 16mm T1.3 1 - Zeiss Superspeed MKI 25mm T1.3* + TOP OF THE LINE Polar Pro Defender lens caps for each. (These are the "Rolls-Royces of lens caps"—nothing comes even close to keeping your lenses more safe and secure). *Please note that the 25mm lens has light scuffing that culminates in the center of the front element (see pictures 10 and 11).
  2. Is this package (particularly the camera) still for sale?
  3. Sorry guys. I'm a newbie here. Couldn't figure out for the life of me how to embed a video. I don't have the buttons for posting media for some reason. I also don't have a delete button, otherwise I would've deleted the failed post above. I am quite confused...
  4. <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/258354917"width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> Tyler Burns - "Knock On Wood/Frankenthaler" Shot this 9.5 minute double music video/short film on Kodak 16mm MPF (50D, 250D, 500T) with an Aaton XTR Prod and Zeiss Primes MKI over the course of almost 3 years in Oregon. Development by Fotokem (Burbank, CA) Telecine by Lightpress (Seattle, WA) Love to hear what y'all think. http://aleceagon.com http://instagram.com/aleceagon
  5. Hi there, Is this an A-Cam dii? Is it still for sale? Would you consider selling just the body? If so, I'd be very interested. Thank you, -Alec
  6. Hey Everyone, My brother and I are aspiring photographers/"filmmakers" doing everything we can to shoot our projects in the style of classic cinema. We had the privilege of shooting this music video for the Portland band "Charbonneau" on Kodak 250D 16mm stock with the Aaton XTR Prod and a Zeiss MK I S16 lens set. We spent almost two months doing principle 35mm still photography around some interesting parts of the city. We hoped that the principle would lend itself to a "photographic" style in the video. We'd love to hear some hard critiques if you have them. Don't hold back
  7. Hey everyone, I'm fortunate to currently own an immaculate set of set of 4 Zeiss MKI prims (9.5, 12, 16, 25mm). For my next project however, I will be doing mostly static portraits so I am in the market either for super-16 telephoto primes (ballpark 50-100mm) or a zoom lens. I have hunted high and low and it has been rather difficult to find any S16 telephoto primes in the upper tier (Zeiss, Schiender, Cooke) that are fore sale individually. I am really hoping to spend no more than 5000. In this range... *Would it by advantageous for me to be in market for a zoom lens instead
  8. Okay very good to hear. I'm hoping. Thanks a lot Tim.
  9. Hey everyone, Kind of freaking out here. I was in a huge hurry yesterday (stupid) and took some exposed film out of the freezer (shot over the last week) and took each can out of its double zip lock bag and pack them in bubble wrapping in a Fedex box. I noticed that condensation built up on the outside of each of the four canisters (obviously since they hadn't acclimated to room temp in the bags). Now each exposed roll was in a black plastic bag inside its canister, each of which was sealed around the edge with electrical tape---I am hoping that that kept any condensation from entering

  11. ya that will be important for sure. thanks
  12. Hey Everyone, I am shooting a super 16mm project on Kodak Black and White Double-X 7222 stock. I just ordered a set of 4x4 polyester color filters for my mattebox so I could play with contrast and what not (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/162548-REG/LEE_Filters_GSBW_4x4_Black_White.html). Questions: 1. Is there reason why polyester filters as opposed to glass would not be optimal for shooting on motion picture film? 2. Anything I should be aware of/other cautionary tips on shooting B&W with color filters? Thanks! -Alec

  14. Hey everyone, UPDATE: So I just tested it on a well kept S8mm projector and the bouncing is native on the film... Couple of questions: - Does this discovery point toward a "film claw/pick up" issue? - Anyone know a good place to have a Nizo 801 Macro serviced or looked at (preferably west coast USA)? Thanks! -alec
