  1. Sorry to jump in but there's a good thread on Alberto's service here http://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=011844 Minimum price only €30 for up to 300m, so about 3c/foot.
  2. It's a bit inelegant, but a lot of S8 cameras have the bush on the end of the grip, so it's manageable. Otherwise it wouldn't be too difficult to make up a battery holder with 6 AAs and solder on a lead and connector if you're handy with a soldering iron. Something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1Pcs-6-AA-Battery-9V-Diy-Clip-Holder-Box-Case-With-Wire-Leads-Black-DE/232034783705?hash=item360659d1d9:g:fegAAOSw~gRVnNSt Looks like that 9V connector is a bit unusual, though.
  3. Not before next Wednesday, anyway.
  4. Your starting point is that the emulsion side of unexposed b/w stock is usually greyish or blue-grey. Colour stock is usually some variation on buff, dull yellow or brown.
  5. Tape and Sharpie or chinagraph? I did it for 1.66 once on a 16BL. With a removable GG it would be even easier.
  6. It's the first result on Google, so, yes. He put the information there.
  7. The FD's flange focal depth is shorter than the Arri's, so you can't do it without a correction lens. (42 vs. 52mm).
  8. Not on a set, surely? Not a lot of traffic in the City at night either.
  9. There was some location work in Hatton Garden dressed as NY, and a bit in W1 and EC2, but at night. Most of the NY scenes were on the Pinewood set.
  10. Probably me being strange. I see it now..
  11. Posted October 20, 2010 I know, I know, it happens to me too after a second glass of Sanatogen.
  12. There's no comparison. LTO-8 tapes hold 30TB and read at 750MBps. They're a million times faster than cassettes at least.
  13. In the UK this sort of nonsense ended in the 70s or 80s. It's utterly childish for a camera operator to be told not to touch a camera.
