  1. Unfortunately there are not Beaulieu labels on it. I have the temptation to leave it at home and to take a small battery pack which I have made by myself and is shown below. What do you think?
  2. Dear all, I am sorry for keeping posting many questions in these days... I own a Beaulieu R16 with the handgrip which you can see in the following photo. You should know that I have a sort of constant paranoia against airport security check. Does anyone has bad experience with these kind of accessories? I have fear that they can be worried about it, cannot understand what is it, increase the X-ray dose and damage the films which I will transport in the same bag. Or that they will not allow me to keep it and therefore will not be able to run the camera. Do you have any suggestion for me? No worries?
  3. I was considering: ZOOM H1n TASCAM Dr-05X both with the dead cat. Which one is the best one? More than this I cannot afford...
  4. Dear all, thanks a lot for your hints.
  5. Dear all, I have a stupid question. During my next reportage, which I will shoot on 16 mm film, I would like to record some environmental sound/voices I don´t have any intention to synchronize anything, just to record some sounds which I will then integrate in the digitalization of the film. I am looking for a portable, easy to use, not expensive, digital small-audio recorder. I am totally confused by the thousands of models available. I was, for example, finding an OLYMPUS WS-852, or something similar. Do you have any experience with these devices? Thank you
  6. Dear Bob, thank you for your comment! Actually, the music could not be too much "happy". Children are smiling, but many of them are living in terrible conditions (no food, drugs, sexual abuse, destroyed families, etc..). Therefore I was thinking that an happier music could have given a wrong message.
  7. Dear all, it is my pleasure for me to present you my first short movie, filmed in the Nairobi´s slums, in January 2019. I do that with a lot of humility from my side, since I am doing that on a forum with high quality content like this. The film is dedicated to Nairobi´s kids and it is a denounce of the terrible life conditions in these Ghettos. I have worked with a Super 8 camera, using Tri-x film, which has been self developed and scanned by Van Eck in Nederland. I hope that you can appreciate it!
  8. As usual, thank you very much for all the information and your replies!
  9. Dear all, a friend of mine offered to give me 400ft of 16 mm film stock. I must spool it down to 100ft spools to use it in my camera. I have a darkroom equipped with the winders you can find below: I was thinking that a single "passage from the larger spool to the smaller would be sufficient. But now, thinking about it, I think that this is not correct. I am totally confused how shall I do that and since I don´t want to waste meterial, I am asking you. Can you suggest me a tutorial?
  10. Hi all, I have just tried the Kodak Eastman 7222. I have taken a short footage and started the developing tests. I get very nice results with the usual D76.
  11. red label: D76, 1:1 12 minutes yellow label: D76, 1:1 10,5 minutes
  12. Here I am! I think the camera is working! red label: D76, 1:1 12 minutes yellow label: D76, 1:1 10,5 minutes
  13. Hi Simon, macht nicht! 😀 I have under-estimated the problem to load the camera properly. I will do that! And keep all posted! I just need to wait to receive the Eastman 7222 in 16 mm, ordered from Wittner. I hope to make a test this week already!
  14. HI Mark, I apologize, I had only some meters of test film with double sprockets. Nice to hear that this is not a problem: I was also thinking that a camera with single sprockets is just "blind" to the second sprocket. In principle I could have used the 15 meters I have processed yesterday, but I want to keep them "for the record"...
  15. Dear Dom, thank you for your hint. I have taken the test film (unfortunately this is doubly perforated, while the camera takes single perforation film) and I have drawn a curve with a red pen. I waited until the ink was perfectly dry, loaded the camera, set to the minimum speed. I removed the lens and took a small video as you suggested. I think that you should go at the end of the video to see better. Furthermore, this is a test at lowest speed: and at circa 25 frame per second:
