  1. Orwo Studios in Baton Rouge advertises that they have a 35mm lab to process and print. At least it's listed under their services page https://www.orwo.studio/#5 I don't know any details about them, nor do I know anyone that has personal experience with them, but could be something worth looking into.
  2. It's been great, I love using it. With the weight and how it's shaped/configured, handheld use took some time to get used to. It's got a good, bright viewfinder. I've used a Bolex before in the past, it's much better than what that had. That's one of the things I like about it, there's a lot of different lenses available. I have two Angenieux zooms (12-120, 12-240).
  3. It's always exciting to shoot the first roll through a camera, I've never used an NPR though. I've been experimenting with that some with my 16s. I've been surprised how little camera noise I've gotten from it. From what I've done, it seems like the angle of the microphone relative to the camera is the key factor. If it's at the appropriate angle, it seems to cut the camera noise it picks up.
  4. Thanks for sharing! I love watching old commercials. I've been noticing some popping up occasionally on facebook where someone has been showing them there.
  5. If you're looking for low cost lights, you can pick up cheap tungstens on ebay. I picked up a few Lowel tugstens on there for cheap back in the spring, they seem to work well enough for low budget stuff.
  6. Interestingly some researchers from Stanford University are arguing that the risk of dying from CV isn't much different that the risk of dying in an accident for those under 65. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.05.20054361v2.full.pdf " Therefore, for the majority of countries around the world and for the majority of states and cities in the USA, the risk of death from COVID-19 this season for people <65 years old may have been even smaller than the risk of dying from a car accident during daily commute. "
  7. Have you tried opening the film gate open and turning it,and seeing if the registration pin moves? On mine, when it's not loaded, nothing else on the inside moves. Also you can use it to move the shutter a bit if it's blocking the viewfinder, so that should be moving too. I picked one up in February and love it.
  8. Would something like the presstape for the old Kodak splicers work? https://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPER-8-S8-MM-PRESSTAPES-SPLICING-TAPE-MOVIE-FILM-SPLICE-NEW-KODAK-PRESSTAPE/273769459405?hash=item3fbdee6ecd:g:i5oAAOSwXoJcah1N
  9. I know this doesn't really have anything to do with the topic, but I love those cell phone people images.
  10. Probably the only way to get to a mass market would be for them to use the cameras as a loss leader, i.e. sell the cameras at a loss and make it up with film sales. The big question is, would enough people buy the camera and enough film for it to be profitable? This is a particular concern given the ongoing shocks due to such a large portion of the economy being shut down (things like a super 8 camera and film are "extras" that people will probably cut out before cutting other expenses). Kodak still isn't in the greatest financial shape, but they have improved things (e.g. lowered long te
  11. Whitehouse sells a parts kit with the belts in it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Parts-Kit-for-Cinema-Products-Cameras-types-CP16-CP16R/293134025591?hash=item4440264377:g:1hsAAOSwV~1Zldnr
  12. No problem at all! Yeah, it is very useful and informative. Just glad to see others who are enthusiastic about film!
  13. You can tell about single perf film by serial number. Serial numbers above 76471 take single perf film. Bolexcollector.com details the different models and gives a lot of information about them, if you want to see how they differ.Bolexcollector
