  1. The future of film isn't just in the hands of the manufacturer of the recording medium. Half of the the celluloid budget goes to getting film processed and scanned. And that's with a friendly price. Kodak will continue to exist as a company for a while. Will they abandon their film division? Maybe. Like someone pointed out it's poorly managed, they stopped caring about smaller projects making a lot of filmmakers feel like poop when reaching out because they're no Chris Nolan or Tarantino. Kodak is so slow to adapt that it's probable they'll have plenty of film for you to purchase and no lab that's close enough or affordable enough for you to take the film you shot using their product to the finish line. A lot of small LA based shoots still ship to a lab in Mass. because it's cheaper than some L.A. labs including transportation and associated risks. So Kodak will survive COVID. Will the small labs too? Not sure. It'll all depend on local orders to restrict business, the timing of that state by state, etc. We might as well end up with just Kodak and Fotokem, a couple mobile labs, all for big bucks productions and the story stops here. 5 DPs a year shooting over the length of Sunset Boulevard on a production week and the rest buying film grain packages to overlay on their dailies until they realize the highlights are gone anyways and the skin tone isn't quite there yet. 😘
  2. I second Bruce. No need for IR correction on film. Opt for a piece of actual glass tinted in the mass, like a tiffen, schneider, century etc.
  3. Most of it is listed on eBay as individual items, but should anyone be interested in buying bundles, please reach out with an offer. The package was serviced last in Spring 2019 and the IVS this January. I'm passionate about 16 and I've taken great care of all of the items listed below. It's taken me many years to get all of these parts together at a decent price. Batteries and chargers being the trickiest and it all works really well now.

  9. Hi there, I'm selling a Lentequip QC-X4 charger with all the cables and one Lentequip 4.0Ah NiMH battery (the kind that has an extra 3-pin for unregulated power). The charger is in good working condition and behaves as it should with both Lente and non Lente packs. The battery was purchased a little over a year ago and used mildly. Recently reconditionned with a deep discharge / charge cycle. I'm also considering selling my 0.5A Quad Charger with all the cables and 4x 1.5Ah NiCd batteries housed in the original ARRI NCL1.2/24 battery shells. Re-celled last year, and recently reconditioned as well. DM me for offers.

  11. Talked to Alan Rencher today, seems like they're thinking of manufacturing an all included adapter piece sometime next year so they wouldn't require a Lentequip back anymore.
  12. Also, I just came across this company. http://www.avc-gmbh.de/AVCE/html/srpacke.htm It's basically what Lentequip does, except they don't have a quad charger. I don't know how the prices compare. I just found a 0.5A NiCd charger that's not a movie product but has a reasonable spec sheet here in California. I'll swap the barrel connector for a 4-pin XLR so I can use the charging cables I have already and we'll see where that goes. If anyone has feedback on the charging current issue, that would still be helpful. I'm trying to figure out if that's what the problem is, or if it's that maybe the cells I ended up with in the re-cell job I ordered earlier this year were bad. They're 1.5Ah cells and the charging current of the Lentequip charger I have is 2 or 3 amps (1.3C-2C charging current). The battery pack manufacturer says that fast charging is just a bad idea all in all and that the charger is unsuitable for these capacities, the charger manufacturer tells me his charger can charge low capacity cells no problem 😕
  13. Yep, totally, but in less than a year they're already on V2 of the design, it's not advertised on their website yet. The lentequip battery they'll need to make their adapter work costs as much as the adapter, so you're talking spending $1000 for a product that is not yet fully matured. I'm waiting till they figure out a way to have it all in one.
  14. Hey all, I'm chiming in as I'm myself looking for a charger. I'm currently using the Lentequip and it seems to be frying my 1.5ah cells. The charging current is 2amps or 3amps depending on the pin configuration. Someone recommended me the PAG charger, but when I look at the specs of the AR304 it appears the charging current is 4amps which is even higher than the Lentequip. Does anyone have an opinion on the charging current? I have a 4Ah Lentequip NiMH battery that charges fine on the Lente charger and 4 1.5Ah NiCd "ARRI original recelled" batteries that I'm not able to charge safely as I stand. I feel like for those batteries a charging of 500mA would be ideal but I can't seem to find anything like that. I'm thinking of purchasing one of the original ARRI NCL chargers but they take 7 hours to charge ... I'm curious to know if anyone has had any issues with the PAG charger on the lower capacity ARRI NiCd cells (1.2Ah - 1.5Ah). Thanks for your time, Toto.
  15. Hi and thanks for your response, I did the measurements with an attached empty mag. The measurements would be different with actual film in there and thank you for asking for clarification. I might find expired film and redo the tests then, I'll update this post when I do so.
