  1. I'm planning on using this JC Backdrop (https://imgur.com/a/1ci63Ys) and I'm looking for advice on lighting the backing for both night and day scenes. The backing would never be seen directly, only through windows that have a layer of thin sheers covering them. I've seen images of entire walls full of tubes that are lighting these backdrops, but I don't have the ability to recreate this. I have lots of larger tungsten heads that I'm planning to use an array of (gelled with full CTB to daylight as the main light sources for the set will be HMIs). These units include 5ks, 2x 10ks, a Mini-B
  2. Thanks again Doug, I reached out to Duclos and they were able to provide me with some spare parts.
  3. I am looking for where I can buy the impossibly tiny screws that attach the focus gear ring to the housing of a S16 Zeiss Super Speed MKII 9.5mm. I'm not sure what size these screws are, but they are smaller than any screw that I currently have. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Thank you Dom, this was incredibly helpful. I had been using this article from Duclos lenses for our 35mm format super speeds, but I was struggling to find the comparable work written on the 16mm format lenses. https://thecinelens.com/2016/08/24/whats-in-a-name-a-guide-to-zeiss-super-speeds/
  5. Hi All, I'm going through the lens inventory at my university and I'm struggling to come up with information on these two 16mm film lenses. https://imgur.com/a/g4sceWU What I know is they are Zeiss lenses with a Distagon design and both cover S16. They appear to have originally had B-mounts and were retrofitted to PL. The lens listed "1" seems like a newer cine-designed lens while the other lens "2," appears to have had a cine-mod done. I believe that the first might just be a newer version of the other. I'm not sure if the Super Speed nomenclature carries over to the S16
