  1. Does anyone have any further info on this lens and the question at hand? Thank you.
  2. Are there any cameras you know of that would happen to accept 400ft magazines?
  3. Thank you for the info. I was thinking of trying to nab a converted Bolex H16, and I think that’s what I’ll go with.
  4. Not too sure if you would have a good idea, but what would you say the best one for film registration would be? An obvious choice would be the Arri, but I've heard the Pathe model from the 80s was another top contender.
  5. I’m aware that there are modified Bolex H16’s going around as well as the professional Pathe DS8 camera. But in terms of ergonomic performance, modernity and ease of use, as well as quality of film registration, which would you guys consider to be the best model out there on the market? P.S. I’m also aware of Pro8mm’s prototype Ultra Double Super 8 camera, but I’m talking about options currently available on the market.
  6. I've always been a fan of deeper depth of field on smaller format cameras, so I planned with that exact notion in mind. Adds more detail and draws attention away from the grain in an effective way in my opinion.
  7. I'd love to hear the pros, cons, and overall differences between these two 1.5x anamorphic projection lenses and people's experiences using them.
  8. I'm used to shooting with 400ft magazines on smaller student productions and never having to change the magazine mid-shoot. However, I may be using the Krasnagorsk-3 soon, which only accepts 100ft reels. Is there a safe and reliable way to swap out the film reels reels, store them, and replace them with new rolls mid-shoot?

  11. Incredibly helpful, thank you Adam. On a different note, which lenses did you use for those test shots of Autumn/Fall?
  12. What I would highly recommend you do is buy a decent 16mm camera which has the option of at the very least attaching a 400ft magazine and simply buying a crystal sync or arriflex SR3 motor and installing it in the camera in place of the old motor. Truth is that you don't really need any of the $8,000-$15,000 16mm cameras out there if you just buy a 400ft mag, replace the motor, and buy a blimp to silence the camera noise. Literally saved me thousands of dollars in camera buying.
  13. It's actually quite funny you'd say that. An acquaintance of mine who pushed me in the direction of shooting 500T in daylight w/no filter quite literally told me "I would recommend shooting on Tungsten and correcting it back to Daylight in post. I've been finding that it really helps give me that vintage look with cool blues but warm skin tones". So in your professional experience, would you strongly disagree with this statement?
  14. Since I may actually have to end up going the Eclair route regardless of preference, would you happen to have any more of an understanding/any information regarding the rudimentary optical differences between the Distagons and Kinetals?
