  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?
  16. Nope, you'll have to set the switch to "bulb" (=no filter). (Theoretically you don't have to do this as the Vision3 50D is correctly notched as "daylight balanced". Hence the camera should automatically disable the filter. But as disabling an already disabled filter doesn't hurt and as it's difficult to check whether the camera's automatism still works correctly....)
  17. Another source: http://www.silverprint.co.uk/ProductByGroup.asp?PrGrp=29

  19. Mr. Wachsmuth has tested developing Vision3 as reversal (in Super8): http://www.filmkorn.org/kodak-vision-zum-positiv-entwickeln/
  20. The only problems that I would expect might be caused by the cartridge itself: Some of Kodak's Vision1/2 200T-stuff wasn't notched correctly. (Correct notch would be 160T, but was 160D or 100D on some cartridges.) AFAIK Vision3 200T is notched correctly.
  21. Hi! I don't know that camera. Hence only a general answer: Most cameras run without a film (but please only test 18fps or slower and only for a few seconds!) And their light-meter should also react (even though it heavily depends on the camera whether it assumes the highest or the lowest possible ASA). And in many cameras the motor-zoom (if any) also works without film. However there are some cameras with motor zoom, where the motor only works while shooting (and in some cases even only when a film-cartridge has been inserted). There are also several cameras that detect the presence of a cartridge and that block a few up to nearly all functions without a cart. However in at least 90% of all cameras at least the light-meter is working without a film. Jörg
  22. One of Wittner's devices: http://www.wittner-kinotechnik.de/neu/grafiken/2008/hfc-ir-3_g.jpg
  23. Thanks. GK's devices (which are using unperforated 35mm-film) are shown in this PDF: http://www.gkfilm.de/de/8_berichte/Cine_8-16_14_-_GK-Film.pdf
  24. I suppose that Kodak still has got one of them. :blink: Filmotec offers to perforate 35mm-film as 35-8 mm Type S, 5R (1-3-5-7-0). Foma still offers and perforates their own DS8-film (that can be easily turned into S8). Not sure whether Pro8mm, Spectra, Retro8 and Kahl can perforate film on their own. However at least GK and Wittner have got perforators and splitters. Not sure if there are any other perforators... .
  25. Why do they call it "4K" when its maximum video-resolution is only 3840×2160?
