  1. At least an English brochure is available online: http://issuu.com/filmmaker8.com/docs/beaulieu_1008_xl_-_brochure
  2. As you're in the USA: http://www.craigcamera.com/ib_b.htm (Even though the founder has died some years ago, his widow is still selling the remaining manuals.)
  3. You might want to take a look at this thread: http://www.filmshooting.com/scripts/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=24780 Other than this: Most video-editing-tools allow colour-correction by selecting a pixel that was supposed to be white. This works for me (in most of the cases). But I still have to increase contrast and luminance after this.
  4. Hi, you might want to take a look at this list (even though some links might be dead and some of the labs might have been closed): http://super8wiki.com/index.php/Category:FAQ#Where_to_Find_Equipment.2C_Processing_and.2For_Telecine Nearly all labs are now offering worldwide services. There are labs in Australia (e.g. Nanolab), Japan (e.g. Retro8) and Southern/Northern/Central America that might be cheaper and faster than dealing with labs in Europe (e.g. Andec). Kodak also has got a list of labs, too (even though it's less complete): http://motion.kodak.com/motion/Support/Laboratories_Directory/index.htm Jörg
  5. You'll have to ask the owner of the webpage yourself. ;-) The owner is "Friedemann Wachsmuth". He's also a member of this forum: http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showuser=47833 AFAIK some of his films on Vimeo are processed by himself in his tank: https://vimeo.com/peaceman/videos/
  6. 2K. There are also a few companies that can do "traditional" blow-ups from Super8 to 35mm (=no need for getting a transfer), e.g.: http://www.studiogamma.be/gonflage_en.php http://www.andecfilm.de/en/e_start.htm

  8. Hi, there are normally two problems with older projectors: Rubber belts have deteriorated. They now either turn to glue, break into small pieces or are too slippery to operate correctly. The take-up arm's friction clutch has deteriorated (as it's made of cork in some projectors). Hence the reel doesn't move even though the belts, motors, ... perform correctly. The second problem is more a related to 16mm or larger. This is because the reels aren't that heavy for standard8/super8 and hence some (or even most) standard8/super8-projectors don't even have a friction clutch. Therefore I can't tell whether the second problem could occur with your projector. ;-) BTW: Are you sure that all knobs, triggers, dials etc. are at the correct position? Some of the projectors do have a "film removal from path"- or "threading"-mode where some functions might be set to "idle"... ;-) Good luck, Jörg
  9. Hi, I've dealt with Blue Cine Tech at least three times over the last and never had any problem. Maybe they're just on summer-vacation and forgot to state it on their webpage? Jörg
  10. Unfortunately that survey is completely useless as they've mixed cine and still without any sense. E.g.: As I'm shooting 135, Super8, DS8 and Single8: Which format should I use for the costs?! And how does ferrania know which format I'm using for the prices? (Not to mention that none of the four formats comes in rolls...)
  11. Please forget that link. I meant to post another link: http://www.leefilters.com/index.php/camera/system Unfortunately I can't edit my post any more. :-( (There are more rotatable filter-holders from Lee and other companies. So there must be one that's suited for your filter. But I haven't found any motorised versions...)
  12. What about this one? http://www.owis.eu/en/products/motorized-positioning-systems/produktgruppe/filterraeder/produkt/8/productview/Main/
  13. Why is the loading-advice in French? Was the whole film "Made in France"?
  14. Hi, with the dawn of the 200ASA-reversal-films, I'm thinking about getting myself a ND-filter. But I'm stuck: Should I use a variable ND-filter? Or one with a fixed factor? Is a cheap no-name Chinese filter (<20€) good enough for "8mm type S"? Or shall I get myself a more expensive filter? AFAIK cheapest: http://www.pearl.de/a-NC1946-1304.shtml Cheap, but at least from a well-known brand: http://www.fotokoch.de/Hoya-Graufilter-ND-4-HMC-E-55_32792.html AFAIK most expensive: http://www.fotoimpex.de/shop/kameras-zubehoer/heliopan-filter-grau-nd-06-serie-vi.html So what are you using? And what would you recommend? Jörg
  15. The result of Film9 looks great! Could you please also upload the original mp4?
