  1. Hi everyone, looking for suggestions on where to scan S8mm film, preferably in LA or Europe. Thanks for your help!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Hi there, does anyone know which 8mm camera model this is? thanks for your help!
  7. 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?
  8. I'm working on a long-term "conceptual art" film that is to be shot in several sequences over the span of 6 months in Los Angeles. I'm not really able to schedule the various shoots within a few successive days since the film is an ongoing process, with various non-actors, adding new people, new setups as the film progresses. My budget unfortunately isn't big enough to rent a 35mm over and over again. Therefore, I am looking for an LA-based DP who owns his own 35mm camera and whom I could hire for the entire project, scheduling these small, one-day shoots to fit his schedule. Really curious to see if somebody's interested or knows someone who might. Happy to share more details about the project if someone's interested. cheers.
  9. Looking to purchase empty cans for 800ft and 1200ft 16mm film. Seems difficult to get, I'd appreciate any leads or offers!
  10. Hi everyone, looking for advice on lenses that would have a similar look and feel to those of Optar Illumina S16 lenses. It's an ongoing project (shot over several years) and have been shooting on Optars for most of it, but I can't seem to find them in the Los Angeles area anymore. Because of that, I'm looking for alternatives. Preferably in the range of 8mm to 12mm. Thanks for your help! :)
  11. For an upcoming project I'd like to do the following two conversions to a super8 camera: - 1) rotate the image 90° so I'll be shooting a vertical image in fact. Obviously, the easiest way would be to attach a handle and just hold the camera at a 90° angle. Just wondering if that could negatively influence the movement/advancement of the film? - 2) since the final output will be in 2.35, I'm wondering what the best way would be to correctly frame for that aspect ratio? Any easy way to attach a mask? Thanks for your time and help, it's much appreciated (and needed) ;)
  12. Looking to purchase a Bolex EBM / EL or a Canon Scoopic. Must be in fully functional condition, preferably tested and in good overall shape. Let me know if you have one for sale or know of any. Thanks, Alex
