  1. Yes, 16mm 5 blade on ebay $700 +/-. Shoot with a video cam off the screen. If you have old shrunk film in bad shape, with broken sprockets, etc then you need sprocketless scanner. I keep buying lotto tickets for big time scanner, but no cooperation from lotto. Here is one example of poor man's transfer.
  2. OK, thanks, will study it up. Still trying to learn the ropes. With still photos I always work in TIFF and then when done I may convert to jpeg.
  3. OP..what are you scanning? Color neg with orange mask? If so, any flatbed scanner turns it into a unmasked positive. How did you get a drum scanner? Pretty rare and $$. Lets see an image of what your scanner produces.
  4. Something is better than nothing. Still works, so am happy about that. Thanks for the forum!
  5. I had a film on a DVD I converted to MP4 with Movavi. It came out as 156mb. I imported the 156mb file to Movie Maker and added a title. When I export as MP4 the 156mb ends up as a 634mb file. Why?? Title is only a few mb and is not the issue. I am working with plain MP4, nothing HD. Thanks
  6. Some of the printed material in my archive stinks like hell. The 'green' printers use vegetable based soy ink and it goes rancid. The printed material smells rancid. Crude oil based ink does not.
  7. You don't see many people using this cam nowadays Manhattan Marriage Bureau - December 2018 (Candid)
  8. Here is a little movie I made on the 'Girls of Instagram.' Really, it should be called the 'Thick Girls of Instagram.' (That is what the kids call the chubb dubs...THICK.) At night I will watch a little TV to relax and fire up my tablet to see what the fat girls of IG are doing. Good relaxation for the ADD mind. I wrote to a few of the girls to make some respectful suggestions to improve their photography and thanked them for their photos. The few ranting replies I got from them were terrible. Jesus, what nasty dispositions the girls have nowadays...just despicable. You would think they are man-hating lesbian separatists. So I gave up giving any advice. (BTW, if you want to improve your candid photography shoot your TV screen while watching TV. Great practice for timing and for learning to 'be at one' with your cam.) Last night I gave the IG thicks a look while watching TV and thought, some of these girls should be archived. So I took out a little Sony P&S and made a video of my tablet. A trend with some of the girls nowadays is to get injections in their butt to give it a 'shelf' look. Kinda adult content...but you can't get too adult with IG ...funny, with all this #METOO stuff, the girls require lots of attention. Some of the IG girls look to have lives that revolve around taking selfies and seeing how many likes they can get for their big butts.
  9. You have to color grade for different venues. Same with prints. Some papers requires different files for printing. Also a file for the monitor / internet viewing may be different from the print file. Here is an example of what I'm talking about with prints. https://danielteolijr.wordpress.com/2017/07/30/papers-and-printers-matter/ Just make a custom grading for YT.

  11. I got an old film from the 70s. A lot of the film was in short pieces. They were marked with tape and coded like this... What does this mean? Just a temp edit? Why is 14/16 together and not in order of 14 /15 / 16? Film is about firemen of that era.
  12. I've seen maybe 70% of them. The last few movies on the list do not appeal to me, so am slacking on them. Just ordered Ship Of Fools from the library. No blu-ray, just regular dvd, but that is OK. I tried Days Of Heaven a few years ago. I had heard it had beautiful cinematography. But it seemed boring, so gave up on it after 10 - 15 minutes. I got ADD. Either a movie holds my attention or not.
  13. Why? They are so cheap I thought they would retire regular dvd players and not blu-ray.

  16. I wanted to buy a Negro Green Book to scan and put up on the Internet Archive. Could not find any originals, just facsimiles. I can see why... https://catalogue.swanngalleries.com/asp/fullCatalogue.asp?salelot=2377+++++516+&refno=++702336&saletype

  19. OP, you have to test the lenses at the stops you are going to use. Some lenses have to be closed down to get the edges doable. Others work pretty good wide open. Just depends. If a lens is adapted, that can make a big difference. Do some tests and pixel peep the edges. As far as your inquiry about using over size lenses to hit the sweet spot? Makes sense. We did it with enlarging to get the center of the lens. If you do test the lenses, send in some photos of the tests.
  20. Long, but good video on copyright and fair use. It came from another discussion on whether it was OK to show a laptop in an educational, non commercial movie showing snips of various websites and whether the view of those websites violated copyright infringement. Are you underground? Own no real estate? No steady hi-powered job? Just got the clothes on your back, a few bucks in your wallet, smartphone, a vid cam, laptop and old car? You are probably judgement proof and can do as you like more or less. They wont get anything from you but practice. Especially if you work within what is generally accepted understandings of what fair use is and not intentionally breaking copyright for selling pirated items. Many times the lawyers will go after cases just to try to extract blackmail money even though it would probably decided as 'fair use' in court. But who wants to go to court? So people pay small $$ to settle irritation cases. ...but I'm no lawyer.

  22. The Future of Art Fairs Is in a Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard A couple of snips.. https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-future-art-fairs-hotel-hollywood-boulevard As the art industry scrambles to find new fair models that let mid-tier galleries participate without driving them to bankruptcy with booth fees and travel costs, three prominent figures in the Los Angeles art scene—collector Dean Valentine and dealers Alberto and Mills Morán—proposed a radical idea. They would return to the hotel fair model, a throwback to the Gramercy International Art Fair held at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. in the 1990s, where booth prices could be kept low due minimal infrastructure-building costs. For dealers who are really hard-up for cash, they could always sleep in their booth—there’s an option to keep the bed in the room... ...And the cost for the hotel fair would be much lower. Booths at Frieze start at $8,277.50 for the smallest booth, a paltry 215 square feet. For a large booth, mega-galleries have to pay more than $75,000. Meanwhile, a gallery at Felix LA can get a booth for just $4,000, and the most expensive booth, at $10,000, is a small uptick from the low barrier at Frieze—but that fee gets you all 1,200 square feet of the hotel’s over-the-top Roosevelt Suite, more than five times the size of a small booth at Frieze. Fair Use Photo Gallery 56 in hotel / show room with art display (Photo blocked by forum) Who would have thought galleries pay so much $$ for a booth at shows? They should boycott the greedy bastards that promote the shows. Oh wait...I guess they want to make $$. I forgot, everyone does not do as an underground'er like me would do. Fascinating article...
  23. Isn't that something. You shoot the project and can't see your work. Sad. Were you prepared for the bugs or was it a learn on the job thing?
  24. What is your main computer...Desktop or Laptop? I have an old desktop, but am thinking about going with laptop/s only. The laptops seem as durable as desktop when not abused. But maybe I've been lucky.
