  1. I am working on the film looping installation but I found loading on the looper is pretty hard to get 'balanced'. As I understood, ideally looping system has to reel and unreel film more or less same amount film so it won't stuck or become large film donut? I load the film with spacer on inner circle and remove it later, so whole film roll could rotate smoothly on the looper plate and it could release. It runs well for a while without any problem but after certain moment you can see the whole film circle is getting smaller or bigger which lead the looper stuck with film or make the f
  2. After I tried many times, back to old post I should ask... Doug, I've tried to do what you described and I still couldn't understand why you emphasised extra frame. Doesn't it actually make more potential probelms? I did bipack while those round guide is locked, so two film moves altogether always. Also I have a trouble that sometimes negative seems slip while exposing it so end up making vertically shaken images on print stock. It doesn't happen always so I am not sure if it relates with this extra frame matter. I don't know if anybody would check but I post in case..
  3. Of course it might be dependent measurement, I want to hear others experiences. While making some experiment, I made some print stock with Orwo pf2(black and white), which I understand polyester stock. Indeed I am very impressed its durableness in general also after I glued some parts with superglue. So I wonder how much polyester base stable physically and chemically and to make some experiment if there are any feasible way to manipulating film more chemically rather than physical method such as tinting, destroying emulsion layer..so on. It seem I need to play with negative (acetate) the
  4. Its late but thank you very much for the answers. I appreciate it. I think I didn't really understand the answers as I was new to film(still) but I can see now, and what does it means better. Thanks.
  5. Hi, I've worked mainly 7222 with self processing(D76/Dektol), now I wonder what type of film can be used for print stock. I've read from the list of motion film, Kodak 7202/7203 is used for BW print stock. But when I check from resellers 7202 is colour negative film. So I am bit confused now, is anyone could recommend suitable print stock for projection? What I want to try here exactly is, I want to make positive duplicate from my negative which is possible to project. I guess slower film(lower ISO) would fit for duplication and control the contrast, it seems really hard to find p
  6. Dear Jean-Louis and Dom Jaeger Thank you, it was exactly what you said. I've sorted it out well!!
  7. Hello, I am a kind of newbie in 16mm film world, I know it would be very primitive question. Please excuse me. I've worked with Kodak 7222 few times which is black and white negative film. As I want to make positive print from it for projection, I need to get proper one for purpose. One person mentioned about Kodak 3302 or Orwo pf2, Though it seems no problem to get 7222, unfortunately so far I couldn't find any of suppliers for final print stock. It seems US is quite active in general about this analog film technique, but I am based in Sweden now. I might contact directly
  8. Hi Richard, Thank you very much! I have bolex so i can try it. I haven't thought about it at all, brilliant! Just in case, as I understood I have to put the my negative with print stock together. Doesn't it make bolex jamming? Or is there any special method to reel the film on the roll? Thanks again!
  9. Dear Jean-Louis Thank you for reply, now everything seems clear. Just one more question before I start to dismantle it. I think I know what you mean 4 screws on top. Because it is rex5 model, it has magazine instrumdnt on top side and i wonder if I have to dismantle it first, or it is possible that I can dismantle viewfinder top plate only. I was considering to disassemble it but was afraid if it is way too complicated for me. All best YJ
  10. Sorry for repeating. I think this is more proper to be here. - Hello, Recently I bought the bolex H16 rex5. But I am not sure if the viewfinder is okay. From its appearance it is 10x viewfinder. Hope I can get some advices from seniors here. First of all it has lever on the side but I can see the image very well when it is vertical position! And the horizontal position, it become very dark. But still I can see the image and specially bottom 30% parts become really dark. When I remove the lens and rotate turret, from the front side I can recognize lights through the prism gla
  11. Hi I have been working only with dark room photography but film processing is quite new. Recently I have been interested in 16mm b/w hand processingd but still I am stuck on primitive level. I am using kodak 7222 negative films now. And I am wondering how I can produce positive film from negative edition. I guess there should be professional duplication machine in the lab. But is it also possible to duplicate(negative to positive or vice versa) by hand processing? I am working alone as it is my hobby so I have no contacts from professional people. It would be appreciated someone l
