  1. It felt normal, but I'm just going to try and get it all serviced. Seems to be very overdue
  2. I'm guessing its likely some sort of mechanical issue with the pressure plate on the magazine in question, I loaded the magazines myself on the footage i just sent off - they seem fairly idiot proof as far as getting the correct loop size goes so I really doubt it's that... we'll see what happens
  3. Hey Simon, I ran some more film through the camera yesterday and sent it to the lab. Used the same two magazines that I did on the first test, I'm just very curious to see what happens. Was never ran through a counter or synch roller. My other roll of footage from a separate mag looked fine - same shots / subject distance / lens etc
  4. a couple grabs that are bigger than 5 pixels 😅 https://imgur.com/a/Q7mIaaj clip of overscan - and yeah, the 250D on stage... it was some free film
  5. Hey thanks for the replies! I didn't see any notifications for these so I'm just now seeing this. Excuse the low res uploads, I'm still figuring out the ropes to posting here Cutting a clip now to upload I don't own the camera but when I got the footage back I asked the owner when the last time it's been serviced and the response was a shrug - which is a problem. I've been testing some old, good but neglected cameras recently - they're essentially free for me to use, so... I guess you can say I've been hoping for the best? It's worked out maybe half the time. Had two magazines - One was fine. The problem footage is all on a single magazine. There was also a diagonal stripe light leak about every 6-10 seconds on that roll so from what you guys are saying about the pressure plate on the magazine I feel like all my problems could becoming from this single magazine, hopefully. Hey Robert, these tests are mainly for my eyes so I'm not worried about rescanning - I just shot some charts today with the same setup and both magazines that I loaded myself to see if I get the same problem. Thanks everyone Kyle
  6. I'd like to add that no filtration was used*
  7. I've been testing some old cameras lately and and shot a couple test rolls through an SR3 - one roll turned out fine. The other one had a weird, ghosted image that I can't quite figure out and I'm guessing someone here will know what this is immediately. (disclaimer: I'm a digital guy and relative noob to film) I've uploaded some grabs.
  8. Thanks Robert, I'll be doing that in a week or two.
  9. Thanks for quick the responses. I'm definitely still going to test, I guess I just wanted to know a little more what to expect with something that old. I'm way too exposure paranoid on fresh stock / even digital to gamble it on a gig or important shoot... Any scanners I should stay away from as far as low DR or having trouble with higher densities? I haven't shot much celluloid since school, its been quite a while, but have been getting back into it fairly recently. I've gotten 2K transfers from an HD Spirit on my last three shoots as they were pretty cost efficient, no issues but I was pretty much going box rating / a third of a stop over. No situation like this
  10. Hey everyone, I've been "lurking" on these forums for years and finally got around to creating an account, so this is my first post. I recently stumbled upon about 3000 ft of recans and a couple short ends of 5213 and 5219 that have been sitting in a freezer for ten years. Considering it's been frozen, came from a trusted source and hasn't been sitting in a sweaty closet (in SC) for that amount of time, how much would you want to overexpose it to get a healthy negative? I'm guessing one stop at the very minimum, but I've never dealt with any film quite that old and these experiments can get expensive, so any advice would be appreciated 🙂
