  1. Thanks for the reply , Phil. What does it mean on these sites: https://dannybribiesca.com/aspectratio/ , and here: https://www.unravel.com.au/aspect-ratio-cheat-sheet and here: https://blog.chameleondg.com/post/111891072017/resolution-aspect-ratio-cheat-sheet where it gives the resolution of 1.85:1 as 2048 x 1107 ? This is where I'm still confused. -
  2. I hope some knowledgeable person here can help me settle something. I'm assisting a friend with setting up his animation project , which at first was going to be done at 16:9 HDTV aspect ratio at 1920 x 1080 , but he is now considering whether to work at 1.85:1 theatrical aspect ratio. I thought that 1.85:1 was 2048 x 1107 and that 16:9 was 2048 x 1152 because on several different websites I've found handy 'Aspect Ratio cheat sheets' posted which give those numbers, for example here : https://dannybribiesca.com/aspectratio/ , and here: https://www.unravel.com.au/aspect-ratio-che
  3. Hi, Phillipe - Pavan Deep made a video showing how to do it . It's on the Facebook 8mm & 16mm users group. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156659339657394&set=gm.10155647398975671&type=3&theater&ifg=1 and see this post: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10155998791637394&set=gm.10155104196645671&type=3&theater&ifg=1
  4. I've experimented with hand-cranking a Bolex . As mentioned the small crank makes it difficult . Fabricating a crank with a longer handle would help. But one other thing to keep in mind is that you need to mount the camera on a very STURDY tripod or you'll get a lot of unwanted "bounce" to the footage.
  5. I have a Bell & Howell 200 twin turret camera which I've had for some time , but until now has only been a nice looking 'paper weight'. (it's a 16mm 50'ft. magazine camera, not easy to get film for these cameras; the mags are designed to take 2-perf film.) But I've wanted to try it out . I didn't realize until recently there is an alternative method of loading these magazines that allows for the use of 1-perf film. The camera winds and runs , sounds smooth, no squealing, grinding or clunking, but of course it is unlikely to have been serviced in the last 50+ years ... so I'm won
  6. Thank you for that thorough summary of the processing options, Martin. (I must say, over the years I've copied and saved so many of your posts from this forum and other filmmaking forums. Let me take this opportunity to thank you for always being so willing to share your encyclopedic knowledge .)
  7. Yes, I have some of the slip-on series filter adapter rings that work. (although that still means I have to find old Series V or Series VI drop in filters , not the modern screw-on filters) . The 24mm adapter fits on some of the Kern lenses (but not the Kern Switar 5.5mm f/1.8, which has a wider rim ... I think I need to find one that is 25mm or 26mm to fit the Switar 5.5mm f/1.8 ). But I was just curious about whether anyone knows the exact thread size of the Bolex retainer ring shown in the set of photos above , to see if I can use a threaded step up ring that is 28mm (?) to 37mm .
  8. If you or anyone else needs the user manual for the Gossen Bolex light meter , it can be found here: https://www.butkus.org/chinon/flashes_meters/bolex/bolex_meter.htm
  9. Bumping this up to note that Alexandre Favre has a campaign going on now to raise funds to complete the film. https://wemakeit.com/projects/paillard-bolex-the-movie
  10. Here's another one to add to the original , long-ago , list : Metropolitan - directed by Whit Stillman, Cinematographer John Thomas. Super 16 . Arri .
  11. I have a Bolex lens (filter) question for you Bolex experts: On many of the Kern D-mount lenses (for the 8mm cameras) the thread size is 21mm . This takes a retaining ring and lens hood (Bolex catalog code: “ADUNI” ) . You screw in the retaining ring, then drop in a Series 4.5 filter , then screw on the lens hood to hold the filter in place. I have found the selection of Series 4.5 filters to be limited and hard to come by. I want to attach a step-up ring to be able to use more commonly found 37mm or 43mm filters. I have found a 21mm to 37mm step-up ring on eBay which I hope will fi
  12. Old topic, but could continue to be updated: "Black Swan" (2010) although I think some of Black Swan was shot digitally, not on film. "Beasts of the Southern Wild" (2012) "Moonrise Kingdom" (2012) "Fruitvale Station" (2013) “Carol” (2015) "Certain Women" (2016) “Jackie” (2016) "The Old Man and the Gun" (2018) "Mid-90's" (2018) I'm sure there are others , including feature-length documentaries . I was surprised on the original thread that no one mentioned the famous surfing documentary "The Endless Summer" (1966). And reaching further into the past , all the Walt Disney "T
  13. I did get a message from Cinelab regarding their processing of Fomapan R-100: "We use our own brew of B&W Reversal chemistry , but Steve runs the Foma separate from Tri-X at different time/temp settings. We all shoot the product and I would say 100 ISO would be ok ."
  14. True indeed. I'm hoping that is why Robert will see this post and comment .
