  1. Yes I don't need 20 rolls for this shoot. I def need just 3 to 4 max 400ft. rolls. For the fire explosion effect for the demo trailer I'll only have two take chances to shoot it with this camera. I'm going to buy one roll to do a camera test which would be good like you said to get use to loading and also see how it works for the camera test. I just bought a really nice lens for the camera off Ebay. Thats the good thing is there is plenty of C-Mounts on Ebay. Thanks for the film stock tips and I'll post a link once I get through the process of doing the camera test. The funny part is even if I had to buy 20 rolls I still would be under in the budget price I got for the Phantom set up with lens and all the extra cost to have one the day this effect scene would be shot. My friend gave me the so called "FRIEND RATE" and it still added up to just over 5 grand. Camera, Lens, Camera extras, Insurance for the camera, the assistant to help him etc. So right now I'm winning by owning the NAC 16 which I got for under 400 bucks and have a nice pair of O'Conner sticks with head. I also own some of the other equipment, it basically comes down to buying the film stock and getting processing etc done. But once again thanks for the tips and I'm so looking forward to shooting this and seeing the results and being able to share them.
  2. Hello , I wasn't able to fix my post and there is no edit option for me so my post sounds a little messed up. I have a Trailer I'm looking to shoot and have a limited budget but can pay. I'm working on Super 16mm and I also am going to use the 16MM High speed which I own for some slow mo shots. I'll be back in touch.
  3. Nicholas, Thank you for the information on the camera. I was able to understand some things I had in my list of questions about the camera. I have a enough in the budget for the demo being shot to get the film stock. I'm going to purchase my film stock for the whole project very soon. I have a explosion of fire in the background for the opening sequence of the trailer or teaser demo and I really wanted to capture some of it with the camera. Some of the info links you provided really helps me out more cause I was speaking to a rep at NAC and they just had no info on the camera and now knowing Photo-Sonics can provide some info if needed will be a major help if I run into a issue. I'm planning on shooting the demo trailer soon and I'll def keep a update on it. I really love film and i've been working slowly to get back to shooting it more cause I've shot a bunch of digital films and it really isn't the same with results on visual. I mean sure it looks good with good glass but still feels flat to me when I see the end results after post. I really want to support film and push more people to go with film over digital with certain films or projects. Last summer we shot a short film, we used a RED Epic and the DP had a old handheld 35mm Eyemo I believe, the director used a bunch of the 35mm footage cause it looked better and the detail was so much more. I support film and I'm going to do everything I can to work back on it and with it. Thanks for the help and will keep you posted on the results. Best Wolfgang
  4. Hello, I just bought a NAC 16mm High Speed Camera. I got it for a bargain price and the camera is in mint shape and everything functions. I was wondering if anyone has used this camera before? I'm looking to use it for a 16mm demo I'm making for the opening scene. I want to shoot some slow motion of the opening scene to add into the super 16mm footage. I also have searched and even contacted NAC and they have nothing to offer on maintenance on the camera. I noticed there is a oil hole and I'm only looking to go up to 500 fps or maybe 1000 fps the highest. Any other info on this camera would be great to know or if anyone knows anything about the camera besides the small info online and in the owners manual which has nothing to offer. Thanks
  5. Hello , I'm looking to work with a DP or Cinematographer that works on film in Los Angeles for free to learn more in the field. I have been working in the film industry for 11 years. I started in NYC and been living in Los Angeles for the last 3. I'm looking to learn more on film and get more experience. I have worked on digital a lot, RED, ARRI ALEXIA, Blackmagic, Canon 5D and 7D, Sony and worked on super 16mm in the past. I was lucky enough to work on 35mm twice in NYC 8 years ago. I want to learn more and get more back into film and looking to meet new people with that experience. Thanks and I really love reading the blogs on here and love making films. Experienced in loading, building, and AC work, also operating.
