  1. Wonderful to see in its day - I think nowadays we might consider calling that "overlit". Very John Ford. I hope David Mullen doesn't see that (also kidding!)
  2. You mean '19 repackaged as still film? I don't see why not in principle, but there's always a minimum charge, and you may not want to pay for 120m to get 1.5m processed. They may not be used to the handling either. No reason for a MP lab to have a cassette opener.
  3. More than likely it has! The German military must have been the major customer, you see Arris in German military photographs all the time. Quite a historical item. Hope you got a bargain.
  4. You see it occasionally, and yes, you do notice, not in a film I could name- it's impossible to put ourselves in the place of a general audience, we can't ignore it. Minimise it if you can- maybe something can be done with tone curves or contrast in the grade. Perhaps you can show the cut to a non- film friend and ask them if anything looks "odd" without priming them to look for problems. I do it with my OH for stills sometimes- she's intelligent enough to tell if something looks "wrong" even if she can't say what it is.
  5. Yes. Then the filter is engaged. Reversal films have much less latitude so need to be exposed accurately. Negative can be overexposed somewhat- in fact it may be preferable as it can suppress grain. The best option is manual exposure and an external meter.
  6. Have I missed something? That would draw 9A. OP is in France. The mains voltage is 230. OP, you can run a 2K blonde and an 800W redhead (sorry, I'm old-fashioned) off the same domestic circuit with room to spare. You could even plug them into the same twin socket outlet (2800/230=12.2A) if you had to. There is a bit of voltage drop in a long cable but not much in the sort of cable runs you are likely to have indoors.
  7. I would only consider dismantling a lens if it had fungus- tracks like the roots of a plant or lightning bolts. They often come off with IPA. Otherwise, just as Dom says. But never ordinary tissue. If it has sat for years it will probably just be dusty unless a coating has failed and clouded over, but I think that's rare.
  8. I'll ask again. Can't you just try the one you have?
  9. Well can't you just try it? On mine the button appears to be quite deep, and when I try the cable release it extends forward- the release actually screws into the button- so it needs a long extension.
  10. I've had mine for decades. I merely suggest it as something to check. I'm not referring to any specific product. The K3 doesn't have a stop-stop function- you'd need a locking type release if you don't want to hold the button in while shooting. They're on ebay.
  11. Zinc-air batteries do have a very limited life, yes. I believe there are adapters that take a much cheaper 1.5V battery and reduce it down to 1.35. This sort of thing https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-KANTO-camera-MR-9-mercury-battery-adapter-SR43-1-55v-conversion-1-35v-JAPAN/323976304794?_trkparms=aid%3D1110009%26algo%3DSPLICE.COMPLISTINGS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200220094952%26meid%3D910a9a01234049f7886d7ca96569e0d3%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D130646083632%26itm%3D323976304794%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3Ddefault&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
  12. In stock here apparently, if a little pricey. https://www.camleyphotographic.com/shop/wein-cell-1-35v-mercury-replacement-camera-battery-px625-px13-weincell-030-2/ same price on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wein-Cell-EPX-PX625-PX13-MRB625-mercury-replacement-battery-1-35v-New-UK-Seller/192808176455?epid=21031290312&hash=item2ce4434b47:g:QjIAAOSwREReYgoM UK but they'll post to Canada..
  13. Cable releases have a threaded end which screws into the start button. You then twist or press a ring to lock and unlock the release. That still needs two hands unless you're quite dexterous, but I seem to remember back in the day that there was a version that locked automatically, then released when you pressed it again. I don't know how you'd find one now. BTW I've just tried my K3 and it needs a very long travel on the cable release rod. Mine won't trigger it.
  14. Oh I dont' know............doesn't "Tokyo Dogs" sound like one you'd have been proud to get an ".In Loving Memory of......." in the credits? Or "Ninja Shadow Warriors"? I bet the sound recordist's wallet had its own transport on that one.

    Read on- for 24 it says 12V is sufficient. OP may not need any more.
