  1. I think this is looking a bit better! https://www.facebook.com/KodakMotionPictureFilm/videos/1273261012795891/
  2. Has anyone tried to build a new one? It looks pretty simple. I bet you could do it with an Arduino pretty easily. Plus, then you could program it to do all sorts of crazy / accurate things. Interesting thought...
  3. Sure, why not? Better if someone gets some use out of it. Let me know if you're interested.
  4. Doesn't the Müller scanner use a laser to register the perfs? That should still work, right? On the other end, I've converted a projector into a scanner, which has it's own issues, but processing density certainly isnt one of them. I've got a bunch of super 8 stuff I scanned on youtube and all of it was hand-processed as negative.
  5. I've actually got a Nikon to ACL adapter, so they did make them. I'd keep an eye on ebay, a decent looking ACL kit just sold today for like $550. If the sensor sizes are the same, you should get very similar results, so if it works on the BMPCC, I can't think of a reason it wouldn't on a super16 ACL, other than lens mounting or possibly backfocus issues.
  6. It might not help, but here's some super16 I shot that's tri-x processed as a negative. This stuff was hand-processed in D76 and scanned on a homemade scanner, so it's a pretty dirty and uneven, and a lab won't be using D76, so I'm not sure if it's even that helpful. But here it is:
  7. I agree. I've been looking for one of the eclair ergonomic grips for mine. I've got some sort of aftermarket ergonomic grip, but it's just not quite at the right angle to be comfortable. But he's asking $300 for one. That's nuts. I payed $800 for the whole camera!
  8. Look what just came up on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/192122951485
  9. In their podcast, they talk about how they are actively looking into bringing back Kodakchrome, and other legacy film stocks. Wow. https://soundcloud.com/the-kodakery/discussing-the-new-kodak-super-8-camera-live-from-kodak-studios-at-ces (at about 24:10)
  10. Yeah, that's about 4x what I was expecting the price to be. It's a crystal sync super 8 camera, so that's great, but they also mentioned only 4 film speeds, 18, 24, 25, and 36. So no time lapse or long exposure, even though the hardware should be capable of it. Also it also seems like they may have removed the on-board camera microphone, (they seemed to make a point of saying that you could record to the sd card if you plugged in an external mic). Not a huge deal, but still. Definitely going to need to see some more footage and find out a lot more details. I was planning on pre-ordering at $500, but I can't really see spending $2000 on a super 8 camera. Still love it though, and I love the efforts Kodak is making.
  11. Oh, wow that's interesting. I just always assumed they cut everything from the same sheets. Learn something every day.
  12. I had more or less dismantled my scanner a while back (it had been fairly unreliable and I needed the parts for something else) and I've been (slowly) repairing and reworking the whole setup. Including rewriting a some code to work with newer versions of pydc1394 and opencv. I also upgraded the vision camera to a Allied Vision Guppy GF-503c, so I'll be able scan over 2k now. I also got an ISG LW-5-S-1394, which is another 2.5k camera, but I'm unable to get images off of it. So maybe I'll look at that as well (although the Guppy has a slower frame rate, but works fine, so maybe I won't. We'll see). Hopefully I'll be able to make the scanner more reliable with this rewrite. I'll post some stuff when/if I get everything working.
  13. Okay, so I'm sure it's just a mistake on the part of the packaging designers, but take a look at this packaging prototype: What do you think? Probably nothing, right? (http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_and_identity_for_kodad_by_work_order.php)
  14. Overcranking? You'd eat through your film a lot quicker, but you would get some nice slow motion shots out of it. (I'm not saying this is a good idea, but it is an option.) Also, you could intentionally overexpose a stop and pull process the film. Your lens may also stop down smaller than f/16.
