  1. On Instagram Shtrihfilm seems to be now a vocal supporter of Russian invasion, Z's and all...
  2. Sure, I can see those. And as you say, one has to look for it, it isn't really distracting at all in my opinion. But then again, if you are going to shoot 400T after having kept that in the freezer for 7-9 years, your expectations must not be that high to begin with 😉 which is exactly why I don't pixel.. err... grain peep my Fuji scans. If I want something pristine (and have the budget for that), fresh film it is.
  3. Back in 2013 I bought about 12 x 400ft Fuji (Eterna 64D, 250D, Vivid 250D, 400T). During the years I stored all of it in the freezer and took out of freezer only when I was about to shoot something. I really haven't seen any issues. I'll probably shoot the last roll, 64D, this summer.
  4. Looking for the dome attachment to Spectra P-251 analog light meter 🙂
  5. I think some people on Photrio would probably know the answer to this question: https://www.photrio.com/forum/
  6. Following the discussion on Facebook, there are several people who have indicated that they would be willing to buy two of them just to get it into production. They are professionals who use super-8 for their own work and seem very committed. But who knows how big share of those who backed away are professionals and how many "prosumers".
  7. Just out of curiosity, in what price range would you estimate a clone of Eclair ACL would go these days? https://eclaircameras.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/eclair-acl-parcat.pdf
  8. I have now tested every iteration of Eclair ACL viewfinders there are: The early small Angenieux, the small Kinoptik that came next, the orientable Angenieux and the orientable Kinoptik. Nothing. My Geiger counter doesn't detect alpha particles, but as evidenced by the Switar that had slightly radioactive elements in it, there would be beta particles as well if the viewfinder lenses had radioactivity. I really wonder where this rumor came originally from, but it doesn't seem to be based on any reality.
  9. He has an ACL of mine for S16 conversion currently so rest assured, he hasn't retired yet! 😉
  10. Les has quite much work but is also very difficult to reach with email. I recommend you call him and ask how long queue he has. Unfortunately I'm not aware of any other machine shops offering PL (or other) adapters for ACL - however, if Les doesn't have time you should ask if companies such as Visual Products or Du-All have any in their inventory.
  11. I'm in Europe so I have had film prints made by both "Color by DeJonghe" and Andec - I think you'll get good service at Fotokem too if they have the service available :)
  12. It won't look bad, but it will look quite warm. If you have a digital camera, set it to daylight setting and take photos with tungsten lights to see how it'll look approximately. How about you buy some Vision3 200T and have a one-light work print made from it? I have been shooting 16mm home movies on negative and went that route -- works great and looks great on projector!
