  1. Yeah, I kind of realised as I was typing. BUT, the good thing is that they do it per cartridge now, so - although it may cost more overall - you don't need to send in like a minimum amount.
  2. This is a good point, and certainly something to consider. If this proves to be the case in the test roll, we're simply going to have to storyboard around such things - keep the light constant. There are moments in our short script where someone turns out a light, so these moments will definitely have to be reworked if the exposure's just going to re-gauge itself. I know what you're thinking, just buy another camera. But things ain't so easy to source down here in Mexico, and we're on a budget of around zero. Plus, the constraints of the medium are a challenge I'd like to overcome. This way when I get a budget I'll be more resourceful.
  3. Thanks for this find, David, but what this fellow suggests is not how I understand what the instruction manual says. You can set exposure before you film by lightly depressing the trigger (and this, by the way, is very difficult without accidentally triggering the shutter), but it doesn't lock the exposure, it's still free to change while filming. I'm not entirely sure that the exposure's still working correctly in my camera - as it seems reluctant to move in some situations! I hope I'm wrong. A test cartridge will clear it up I suppose...
  4. Hi everyone. I'm pretty new to shooting on film. I recently bagged myself a Yashica Super-60E and want to produce some footage on it. I need some exposure advice. Now, if my knowledge of exposing non-digital wasn't limited enough, this camera is auto-exposure. It has three "brightness control" settings (Spotlight, Normal & Backlight), which the manual claims can push the camera around one-stop in either direction. There's an in-view meter, which will roll to red if under-exposed, or otherwise will usually sit somewhere between f4 and f2.8 levels. The manual also claims that it's impossible to over-expose... could that be true? So - now assume you're talking to an idiot (you are) - what tips and advice can you fine people offer to get the best exposure results from my footage? Thanks a lot in advance for any input and your patience with a novice.
  5. Cinelab have just improved their rates, just a little bit. They do $20 process + $15 1k / $20 1080p / $30 2k. Well, actually it used to be $18 a cart. but the scan side of things has come down from what I remember - they were wanting like a $150 minimum scan I think. PS, please tell me where you get cartridges at $25! From ebay I get B&W at $26+p&p, but that's the cheapest I've found. Colour seems to be generally like $5 more...
