  1. For Sale : Fuji 35 & 16mm 400ft. stock new & sealed. Stored in a temperature controlled environment. Purchased new in 2011 & 2012.
  2. I've always heard shooting color neg and pulling out all the color simply doesn't do what shooting black and white does. I plan to shoot a test of my own to see what I find on my own, but I'm interested in people's insight into this claim? This began with me trying to find as much Plus-X 7276 as I could for a short, because it's probably my favorite stuff full stop. but it's so old now that it's nearly impossible to find in large amounts, and like a lot of expired film, often comes without any guarantee of the quality of the storage. So I thought, why don't I just shoot 7203 with high contrast ratios and try to fake it? Do you think I'll even get in the same ballpark? 7276 is so shimmery and silky and punchy and grain free. Besides V3 color stocks being so low-con by design, are there any other reasons that make this not a great idea? Thanks!

  4. Hey all, I pretty much just want to get this film in front of strangers. Tell me what you think! I am an iterative type of person, wherein I will go into the next project with what I learned. Here is what I can tell you about this project: Shot in Portland, Oregon - Dec. 2023, Final cut: Feb 2024 I shot this film on an Eclair ACL 2 (and an ACL 1 for B-Roll) using Kodak 500T 16mm Film. I shot 900 feet of film, which comes to exactly 25 minutes and 32 seconds (at 24fps). I sent the film to "The Negative Space," by Nicki Coyle, to be processed and scanned in 4k. The filming was spaced out over 3 days - All of Vincent's lines were in one session; a week later, we shot all of the Dean's lines. The following Saturday, we shot the creepy basement scene. For sound, I used a TASCAM DR-40x with an Audio-Technica AT875R Microphone. The whole setup worked really great, with a wider angle microphone I think the sound of the camera would've been a problem, though you can still here the shutter in some moments, I tried to mask it with room tone added in post. I edited the project in Davinci Resolve with some visual effects in Blender, Photoshop, and After Effects. The Painting was made in Photoshop. I took pictures of DeAndre (Vincent). Similarly, I positioned him to "Not to be Reproduced" by René Magritte (ironic, I know). Then, using Generative Fill, I filtered the image with the prompt: "Abstract Oil Painting" to get the final look. I motion-tracked and often rotoscoped in the final PNG in After Effects, which is difficult when working with 16mm film. I learned a lot with this project from a directing and writing standpoint. My two biggest takeaways are: 1.) I cannot simultaneously operate a camera and direct the actors. I need to hire a Camera Operator next time! 2.) At least one whole page of dialogue didn't make the final cut. This was okay because the dialogue was motivated to have the same end. This means I could cut out a large portion of dialogue to make the interview part more succinct without losing any crucial story points since everything they discussed pointed to the Painting. It was nice to have different dialogue options to intercut, so it worked out in the end. Please let me know what you think!
  5. $22,000 $27,000 w/ Lens Hello, Bought an XTR Prod from Visual Products back in May. Did not get any use out of it with the strike. It was purchased and has sat in its case.

  7. Made a reel out of all the concert footage I shot in 2023. The super 8 footage was shot on a Beaulieu 4008 ZMII and the 16mm was shot on a Bolex H16. https://youtu.be/WgHjehnVAkA?si=BnNhBzU_E0mt8ZBW
  8. After seeing some old forum posts talking about creating a DIY video tap for older 16mm cameras, I thought I’d give it a shot. There’s an old thread about exactly the camera I’m using, an Eclair ACL, but the photo of the rig that they posted is no longer on the internet. So I put a super rough $20 thing together (plus an iPhone 8+). You can see it here: https://imgur.com/gallery/aNxfqXV Any suggestions? There are definitely some things that could be improved. It takes a while to set up since it doesn’t want to stay in place unless I use tape. It’d be nice to have a more rigid arm, but I’m not sure I could find one that’s the exact length and angle needed (that’s why I ended up with the “gooseneck”). And for actual shooting I’ll need to make sure that I’ve covered up all possible points where light can come in the viewfinder so it doesn’t cause light leaks.

  12. Hi I wonder if you can help me. I have the original Arriflex shoulder rig for my Arriflex SB 16mm camera, but it's missing the pistol grip that allows the camera to attach to it. Any ideas what I could use as an alternative? Those original pistol grips are very difficult to come by but maybe there's a modern equivalent I could use instead? Any suggestions much appreciated. Here's an example of the shoulder rig with pistol grip attached: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/325520570202?hash=item4bca89b75a:g:cAQAAOSweBlj22bg&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoJUg8RoNr0CWLuMmY%2BKA7vzslBLbAtGykJI7EZS%2FkMMivYiFf2TApXx6R1Lkwju61PtPmE1HkGS9INUxaDEBI96m9SHeLhH3hFz9husxVGOAVDEj6HrBxLFhxrxKjmGT5ULn62yjfQKaoLKezA%2FXbb2PoYUkiJRVmfqX7drl2m5jTcIajaFvdh9HKR3xcnMEn4NUrfFi8ktxfTHwLlNVgCU%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR7Lop-fNYQ
  13. There were a few threads on widescreen 16mm that had it individually brought up with links to defunct websites that supposedly had more information, but I want it for here, does anyone have any information on the 16mm anamorphic process known as tronchet scope, like what gear was involved? I know it was a system based on an anamorphic adapter placed in front of primes on a 16mm camera and that it was used on a few movies back in the day like Lucile Hadžihalilović's "La Bouche De Jean-Pierre" or "Jean Pierre's Mouth", Gaspar Noe's "Seul Contre Tous" or "I Stand Alone", and Carlos Reygadas's "Japòn". If anyone has any other information on this system please drop it here.
  14. Hi! I'm graduating high school this year, and I'm eager to learn as much as I can about shooting on 16 and 35mm because that is what I what to specialize in as a DP. Instead of studying film in university, I have decided to take the alternative route of technical skill based learning. Some of the information on these forums is outdated, so what are current running workshops, courses, artist residences, and programs that teach 16mm and analog cinematography? I have experience with teaching myself how to shoot 16mm on a Bolex through YouTube videos, but I would like better professional knowledge that goes more in depth than my online research ever could. I would like to know of any programs out there, whether they are academically or non-academically based.
  15. 275 feet for $1600+! Anything vintage L.A. / Bevery Hills / CA related can go for big $$. Same with films of vintage Times Square showing the porn industry back in the day. (1970s) A film student died and left a small outtake 16mm reel of vintage Times Square and it went for about $1400. Apparently, L.A. had a Beverycrest sign in the hills, along with Hollywoodland sign, that was later shortened to Hollywood. L.A. used to have tons of storybook roofs, fairytale roofs, textured roofs, 3D roofs, Hansel & Gretel roofs around town. They had lots of names for them. This is not a great example of the textured roof design, but it reminded me of them. These are what the roofs looked like. This one just off of the Miracle Mile in 2012, near where I grew up. They usually were built up with asphalt shingles. This one was out of wood. I guess people will be going to metal roofs once CA can bans all fossil fuels. Only problem is metal roofs use a rubber membrane underneath...and it is made from crude oil as well! Photo: DDTJR Well, some rich person or institution picked it up. It could also have gone to a stock footage company that sell it to you by the second. Point is, you and me will probably never see much, if any of it. I've closed down my film Archive more or less. Not having any luck raising $ to buy a half-ass scanner, so no use adding more fuel to the fire. But if something comes up that is cheap and would make a good addition to the film Archive, I will try to pick it up. IIn the last year I've only bought a handful of films. I bid on this one, but $88.93 didn't go far in bidding. Most 16mm home movies can be bought for $15 - $35...unless the film nuts get a hard-on for it, like this one. This is the most expensive home movie I've ever seen on eBay. <><><><> Publicity photo Wolfman Jack ~ 'American Graffiti' 1973 DDTJRAC Wolfman Jack Archive.
  16. I've got a few photography related 16mm films in the Archive. One is a fantastic 16mm salesman's reel on flash photography. (non-Kodak.) This one on paper looks interesting. Hopefully it has some of the paper coating production. It will be a long time before it ever gets scanned. You know the story with trying to get a scanner.

  19. I've been a commercial photographer for 25 years, started DP and directing a decade ago, broadcast and streaming commercials, documentary and docu-series working with Arri Alexa, Amira, Red, Sony. A friend picked up this SR2 in Iraq in 2003 from a Brit filmmaker, my friend was there for NatGeo filming. He has a terminal illness and gave me the Arri SR2 w/Angenieux 10-150 and an additional high speed magazine. The SR2 is serial # 63831. I'm planning on filming with it and getting it set up (it needs a new cell or replacement battery - the casing is there but empty inside, just 2 wires). Ideal would be to convert to a V-Mount if possible. And down the road convert to Ultra16 (DeMarco/Aranofsky). I'm curious it has a High Speed magazine, How do I tell if the camera is a High Speed version (10-150fps)? If not can I use the high speed magazine as a standard mag? iPhone snaps attached.
  20. 16mm film in early stages of vinegar syndrome. Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive This post is about various tests I've done over the last 5 years looking to halt the progression of and reverse the degradation of film suffering from Vinegar Syndrome. Vinegar Syndrome (VS) is a big problem with acetate cine' film. Maybe 15% to 20% of my cine' film Archive suffers from it in some form. Heat makes acetate film off-gas acetic acid + no ventilation in the sealed film can, for the acetic acid gas to escape = VS. The films then start to shrink and buckle. They become brittle, emulsion can flake off and in extreme cases solidify into a blob. If you want to allow for ventilation with film storage, get vented film cans. The only surefire way to halt the progression of VS is to vacuum seal the film and freeze it subzero. Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. Screenshot Google image search: D.D. Teoli Jr. Chest freezers are an economical way to buy freezer space. You can get a 5 cubic foot model for about $180. Or for $800 you can buy one big enough to hold 3 or 4 human bodies. 16mm humidor film can Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive Back in the day, they had humidor film cans. They had an absorbent material in the center to add water or chemicals to. Originally, they were made for water humidity. Later on, film users used various chemicals to try and preserve the film, such as camphor or from the smell of it, some type of naphthalene. Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive Vaporate - Peerless Film Treatment was a commercial treatment done to film to protect it from deterioration due to handling. I've only seen one example of Vaporate. That sample showed no deterioration from VS. But, being I've only seen one sample of Vaporate, there was not enough confirmation to draw any conclusions.

Teoli Jr. The tests I ran for Vitafilm & Film Renew covered 5 years using Kodachrome and B&W stock suffering from VS. Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. Here were some of the tests I conducted on 16mm films. All aging was done in a tape sealed film can to maximize absorption and slow the evaporation process. Some films were reverse wound during the soaking and aging process, others were not. Reverse winding didn't make a whole lot of difference once it was returned to normal wind. A few of the tests were not aged and just wiped down after treatment. Most of the testing was done with black and white film stock, although I did test a number of Kodachrome reels suffering from VS to see if there was any difference in results. List of Tests: Generous application of Vitafilm or Film Renew and aged 1 month. Soaked 1 hour in Vitafilm or Film Renew and wiped down. Soaked 1 day in Vitafilm or Film Renew and wiped down. Soaked 1 day in Vitafilm or Film Renew, drip dried and aged 1 month. Soaked 3 days in Vitafilm or Film Renew, drip dried and aged 2 months. Soaked 1 week in Vitafilm or Film Renew, drip dried and aged 3 months. Soaked 1 month in Vitafilm or Film Renew, drip dried and aged 6 months. Soaked 3 months in Vitafilm or Film Renew, drip dried and aged 2 years. Soaked 6 months in Vitafilm, drip dried and aged 4 years. Then it was soaked again for 2 days and aged another year for a total of 5 years aging. (Vitafilm tested only.) Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. Irrespective of color or black and white film stock, none of the treatments I did fixed the film shrinking and warping. They may have halted the VS decay, but I can't attest to that one way or another, since it will take a few decades to determine if that is the case. The vinegar smell was replaced by a chemical smell and no further deterioration was noticed after the treatment. That is all I can say. Below are the results of the multi-soak 5-year test with Vitafilm. Before treatment Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. Same film as above after soaking in Vitafilm for 6 months. It was drip dried and aged 4 years. Then it was soaked again for 2 days and aged another year for a total of 5 years aging. Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. A-D test strips give you an objective method to test for VS. Photo: NYC Department of Records & Information Services Photo used under auspices of Fair Use. Background shows dirt on just a few feet of film using Film Renew as a cleaning agent. Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. Irrespective of whether there is any halting of the VS from Film Renew or Vitafilm treatments; they both are excellent cleaners and lubricators for film. There is no comparison with the cleaning action you get with slow drying Film Renew compared to a fast-drying cleaner like Edwal that leaves a lot of the dirt behind. Fast drying cleaners evaporate before they get all the dirt. They also do not offer any lubrication if you are projecting a film. I cannot attest to the long-term archival effects of using film cleaners. That will have to be revisited a few decades from now. Photo: D.D. Teoli Jr. <><><><> Camera Store - Glendale, CA Daniel D.

  22. Hi Guys, I own a Krasnogorsk K-3, I purely use it for fun, not professionally. I've put about three rolls through it at this stage, and although I'm happy with the quality of the footage, I notice a large dust build up on all the the footage, as well as some continuous straight scratching on the right side of the film. Have been quoted £400 to have the camera professionally cleaned and serviced, but it's not worth that so I'm not really willing to fork out that much just for a camera that I use for fun. Was wondering if anyone here has experience of cleaning this camera themselves? And if they could give any advice to potentially fixing this at home? I gave the camera a good blow with compressed air, and a little brush the last time I put a roll through it, but still got the recurring issues. Any other help would be massively appreciated! I have attached some images for reference. Best, Jack
  23. Hello all! A few weeks ago, I put my first test roll through my new Bolex EBM camera. Unfortunately, it turned out the shutter and claw system were completely out of sync. I took it upon myself to do the repair as I couldn't not afford to send it for a general overhaul and fix abroad. I've spent many weeks going through the repair manual and reading plenty of helpful posts on this forum, to understand how the system operates before I even try to disassemble it. I got the right tools and after some time, I think I've managed to perfect it. Here are links to some slow mo footage of film passing through the system: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/1zNsxUi_lp0 (the first second when the film is passing through the gate, you can see the film move as the shutter is open, but that's only as the film is not yet engaged with the sprockets and claws, once it engages, it seems to properly stabilise). https://www.youtube.com/shorts/jiuQj3iaar8 I was wondering does this now seem to be properly in sync? Obviously I'll have to have another test roll shot and developed before any conclusions but I was wondering what's your opinion just by looking at the footage above. Many Thanks!
  24. Look at this 16mm print of Taxi Driver that sold on eBay. With shipping and sales tax, it is about $420 for a faded red print. Film collectors would rather project a faded print than watch a restored version on Blu-ray or 4K. Now, I got lots of faded red films. But usually they cost $5 - $20. And the only reason I have them is there are no other options, and they are rare. But I'm talking about short subject films, not feature films that are available on disc. I'm thinking if this was a pristine, grade A color 16mm print it would be $2,000 - $2,500...but just guessing. Full rundown: https://archive.org/search?query=taxi+driver+teoli On the Blu-ray bonus features, Martin Scorsese talked about having to desaturate the blood at the end of Taxi Driver to avoid an X rating. He never did fix it and come out with an uncensored version. Maybe he is waiting until 50th anniversary in 2026. <><><><> Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection Daniel D.

Quite a unique collection of items that include: - 3 400ft magazines (two functioning - one untested) - 1 1000ft coax magazine - Blimp for prime lenses - Minilock for crystal sync (untested - motor in the camera is different) - Two motors (untested, one is 42v for use with power supply) - Camera top handle - Multitude of filters (can provide more details by email) - Plenty of magazine cores for the 400ft plastic cores - Remote control for camera - 4-pin XLR to D-tap for power - Original box - Power supply for 42v motor - Periscope viewfinder for when operating with a shoulder rig Most recently used for a short film that was shot in 2022 and 2023, no issues at all with the camera. Very stable gate, great image. I can ship to UK and maybe EU but collection in London is preferred. This is the eBay link for the camera: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/374789398236 There are some pictures on the eBay listing too. Happy to receive offers through eBay or directly on here if you prefer. Sad to see this one go because I really love shooting on the 16BL, but I'm selling it to finance my next short film!
