  1. Thank you all for the complements! Sorry for the delay, just got off a month long show (grateful to be working a job this long during covid). I'll check into the lens mount, I'm guessing it was the cartridge and pressure plate acting up, but looking into the lens isn't a bad suggestion either. I'm about to shoot some more with it soon and would like to make sure it's working properly.
  2. Yeah, it makes the most sense, considering the camera seems to be running perfectly, and the other two rolls didn't have issues. On a positive note, the other footage came back nice, haha.
  3. Hi everyone, Did some shooting a few weeks back, three rolls of 7219, all from Pro8mm. First two rolls worked great, but the moment I loaded up the third roll, the problems began. As I started rolling with my Beaulieu 6008s, I kept getting an error light after a few seconds of "rolling". After some trial and error with the sharpie trick, I figured out the cartridge was jammed. I tried multiple times the slap trick to loosen the film, to no avail. Eventually, I watched a Pro8mm video that suggested pulling some of the film out gently, then rolling it back into the cartridge. Th
  4. Hi Martin, Amazing. Thank you so much for the detailed response. I forgot to mention when I was metering, I was using my external light meter, rather than the one in-camera. Some of those scenes I was getting a 2 or 1.4 for my key, so I was already wide open, but wasn't aware I was nearly a stop different in camera because the shutter! I'm treating my Super8 shooting as a way to practice with film during the pandemic, so shooting at 24fps is my go-to. Regarding fading, I'm not currently interested in using that, though the feature is cool! I'll give the 1/60 shutter a chance next we
  5. Hi there, Just started getting into Super8 during the pandemic and bought myself a Beaulieu 6008s. Shot and got back my first roll, and was overall happy with it. Here's some stills for fun: https://imgur.com/a/w7vM3Ft Upon re-reading the manual, I noticed the "Normal" setting at 24fps for the shutter angle is 1/96, as opposed to the LowLight mode which is 1/60. Any reason why 1/96 is considered normal? I was wondering why my footage looked a little darker than I was metering (luckily I was trying to shoot a stop over when I could). Seems like for 24fps it'd be much more n
  6. Hey there, Just throwing it out there, but have you could maybe rent a MOVi gimbal, and operate it at slower speeds in the back of a pickup truck? The Alexa might be pretty heavy to do that with though, so maybe if you have a smaller B-cam you can use it for that shot. Just a guess.
