  1. I don't think you can compare an 18K and a 175W Laser light in any way. I'd compare it more to a Leko as thats the intended use (focused light). Interestingly the unit does not seem that bright at 100% in a fairly dim scenario (Cinegear). And keep in mind once you bounce the light into a CRLS 2 or 3 (to really get the spread) you will lose most of your punch. Very curious to test the light in person but I'd keep expectations in check. This wont replace a 18K, M90, M40 or even M18.
  2. Stunning work - some really beautiful frames in there, Jarin! Curious to hear more about what you used for the Petzval sequences - really lovely look and wild falloff!!
  3. I blew it out before using - but might have to do a deeper clean. The odd thing is there wasn't anything noticeable. Thanks for the input though, really appreciate it!
  4. Now looking at it frame by frame that makes a lot more sense. Where does it come from and how can I minimize it? Thanks, Tim
  5. Hi everybody - I just started testing two Beaulieu 4008s - in one I shot a roll of 7266 Tri-X and in the other a roll of 7203. Both were developed and scanned at Cinelab in MA. The Tri-X came out pretty clean but the 7203 shows a lot of scratches. As this is my first dabble into shooting Super 8 and on top using those cameras for the first time, I was wondering where this is coming from. Given that one camera produced completely clean results and the other produced lots of scratches, I assume it would be an issue with the gate/feed or something else physically scratching the film. Is is possible that the film could get scratched during the scanning? Here is an example of what it looks like: Curious to hear your input so that I can get more out of the next roll 🙂 Thanks! Tim
