  1. So i recently have been planning a new set of lenses to have and I came to the conclusion of investing primarily m42 35mm lenses and using them on various cameras via adapters. The three cameras and their mounts i'm using them on are a Nikon full frame F-mount camera, a Bealieu 4008 II super 8 that uses c-mount, and a Krasnogorsk-3 super-16 that uses m42 lenses. So the first thing is that I'm sure the Nikon will handle the m42 lenses fairly well with the right adapter, however I've been told there may be issues about trying to adapt them to a super 8 camera such as the Bealieu. Anyone h
  2. I seem to have found a solution to this. I'm finding that many of the old M42-mount Pentax Takumar lenses seem to have this particular lens flare, which is good news for me as i intend to use M42 lenses for my super 8, 16mm and dslr cameras. http://tesselator.gpmod.com/Images/_Image_By_Lens/SMC_Takumar_28mm_F3.5/_1030504.jpg
  3. So there's this particular type of lens flare that I've been meaning to try to recreate without having to use post-production editing (all in camera).

You may have seen it from some movies mostly in the 70's and 80's. To give you an idea, I've myself have seen it in Dirty Harry (1971), Magnum Force (1973), Aliens (1986
  4. Found a pdf article on Pro8mm's beaulieu max 8 cameras that provides a photo of the widened film gate. Seems the bottom area perpendicular to the vertical edges of the opening is cut out. link here: http://www.pro8mm.com/pdf/return_of_legend_beaulieu.pdf
  5. Hello all, this is my first post upon joining these forums. So basically I'm a bit of a DIY tinkerer whose interests in video film have skyrocketed (after buying and selling a couple I've settle on a Beaulieu 4008 TM II Super 8 and a Krasnogorsk K3 Super 16mm. However, I've recognized a new format for Super 8 called Max 8 (basically widescreen variant of Super * which is normally 1.33 near square format) and the beaulieu is a great camera for this, despite some modification must be done. I am aware that the company Pro8mm does conversions like that, but looking at the price tag I think
