  1. Hey guys! Glad to hear such interest. It is a projection anamorphic that screws onto the front of my Meteor 17-69 lens on the K3. It is called the Widescreen Supa60, it is quite a rare scope. There's not much info about it online, actually. It has some Interesting characteristics and blue flares similar to LOMO anas ! I am also using the Rapido FVD-16A single focus diopter screwed on the front of the anamorphic. (Both Meteor lens, and Anamorphic lens are at infinity, the anamorphic was calibrated by a lens tech to ensure optimal sharpness) I'm viewing a squeezed image in the viewfinder, but with 1.5x you can sort of tell the focus actually, it's not too tricky. As for the scratched. I'm not so sure it'd be the anamorphic cause it never caused me problems on digital.
  2. Hey everyone! Here's a video of some 16mm film I shot recently Picked up a K3 off Ebay for pretty dirt cheap, looked like it was never even used before. I loaded some 7222 stock into it and paired it with my 1.5x anamorphic. Shot some stuff just to test if it worked. It looks pretty solid but I'm getting consistent scratching on my footage. (and I knew I didn't clean the gate before shooting, so that's the lint in the corners) Any ideas as to why my footage is scratched? I still have the loop formers in the K3 and I've heard mixed things about it scratching footage (some say yes, others no). Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers!

  4. Hey Bob can you send your email address i will buy some of your 100' rolls
  5. I'd like to know as well! I'm Toronto based!
  6. Hello! I just bought a K3 a month or so ago. I'm wondering if anywhere or anyone mods the lens mount to some like PL anymore. I've seen a few people floating around with different mounts on this camera and the M42 mount is kind of hindering when it comes to wider FOVs. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  7. Thank you Adrian for the insight and the advice! Going to run a test to get some results.
  8. Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy a Super16mm camera package. Something like Arri SR3 or SR2. Looking to spend around $3200. Anyone selling or have any leads?
  9. Hello everyone, I'm shooting a film in a month and a bit all on S16 with 250D film stock. We are shooting a scene in a department store that has all fluorescent lighting (photo below). We don't have the budget to replace all the tubes in the store and I was thinking of shooting it mostly with the natural fluorescent light for the wides but adding more fill and shape in the closeups. A possible question that would raise when I'm doing this is the flicker. Will there be flicker? Would checking flicker from a DSLR in video mode be a suitable way of testing for flicker or would I need to play with the shutter in this instance and run some actual tests from the lab. Looking forward to your responses. Thanks, Marc
  10. Thanks! The night exteriors I took a sort of Gordon Willis "Manhattan" approach and pushed the film 2 and a half stops for all the night exteriors. I was very surprised with the results.
  11. Thank you! Also a big thank you to everyone who responded to help! Great feedback from everyone!
  12. It was not actually done at Niagara because of the reviews I heard from people I know personally. This test was done at a lab in Maryland. My next test I plan to run one roll through NCL though, because I question the accuracy of some of the reviews I've gotten, and I'd like to test it myself because a lab in the city you live in is after all convenient. If you have a review about the place or other film labs closer to the city I'd love to get your feedback.
  13. Hello, I recently shot some Super16mm BW tests with Double-X 7222 film for the first time. I shot with an Arri SR3 and an Angenieux zoom. I have these weird lines on the side of the image after I got a telecine back that started out minimal and kinda got rampant as we got to the end of roll. I have uploaded a short video of the problems where they appear most prevalent. I have also attached some images below as well. Can someone help me what may have gone wrong? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlpqNcql0v8&feature=youtu.be
