  1. Poor you. I hope crying like a baby helps you getting jobs. And you don‘t seem to understand that this project requires a camerawomen. Not sure what’s so difficult to grasp.
  2. You‘re a trip, man. So one cannot even ask around for names and reels of female cinematographers without you shouting „discrimination!“? there‘s a reason I‘m looking for a camerawomen specifically. I should have included that information in my initial post. I just incorrectly assumed that you‘d be intelligent enough to consider that aspect instead of complaining from the get-go.
  3. if you wanna have a chat about gender equality/opportunities, then go open your own thread. this was posted in the jobs/reels section. what’s the point in these sub categories if one just posts whatever/wherever? I guess I wrongly assumed that people would be more helpful on here. being lectured instead really helps, thanks!
  4. thanks for hijacking my request everyone. seriously, you guys need to take it elsewhere! All I was asking for were some names of cameraWOMEN, because the project I‘m working on asks for it (for reasons I at this point no longer feel to share here except with the camerawomen themselves). So if you can think of anyone I‘d be happy for any names/links, otherwise don‘t post. Thank you.
  5. Looking for a LA-based female cinematographer comfortable shooting on 16mm. Let me know if you could think of anyone. Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone, looking for suggestions on where to scan S8mm film, preferably in LA or Europe. Thanks for your help!
  7. I'm selling the following Kodak Vision3 16mm films. All films are brand new, unexposed and always stored cold. (1x) - 100ft Vision3 500T (2x) - 100ft Vision3 250D (1x) - 100ft Vision3 50D - label is teared open, but like the others the film is new, unexposed and stored cold. $40/roll, price is firm. Pickup in Los Angeles, shipping within US only.
  8. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a possible solution for the following scenario: I have three subjects that I'd like to be tracked individually by three "cinema" cameras (Alexa, Red, etc.). I'm looking for a "mechanical" feel in tracking the subjects, eg. without camera operators. I have found a few automated tracking system/mounts such as Pixio (https://shop.movensee.com/en/), but they are more geared toward consumer- and action-cameras. I was wondering if there are similar systems for larger cameras? Thanks in advance, curious to hear your thoughts.
  9. Selling an excellent condition Bolex SBM Super 16 camera (13x viewfinder) plus a Bayonet to C-mount adapter. It was just serviced by Du-All Camera in NYC and upgraded to Super 16 by the Bolex factory in Switzerland. Everything is super clean and has been professionally maintained. Fully tested, camera works beautifully. Asking price: $4999 OBO For images, head over to ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/283637470936?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Ships from Los Angeles. Private sale.
  10. Hi everyone, beginner question: I recently got a Bolex SBM. Can I change lenses while the film is loaded already? Or would I expose the film? thanks, Alex
  11. Hi there, does anyone know which 8mm camera model this is? thanks for your help!
  12. amateur (and slightly off-topic) question: how does the 50D compare to the 250D in terms of grain? I haven't been able to find any direct comparisons with regard to grain structure. Just wondering how much grainier 250D is. Shot some rolls of 250D outside in broad daylight with a ND9 filter, and wondering, since this project is ongoing, if I should keep going or switch to 50D - would the difference be noticeable?
