  1. Hi all, I'll be shooting on the Arri 3C for the first time next week. I've done a little bit of filming on an Arri SRT2 and some 8mm - but no 35mm - and would love to hear some tips and tricks from other DPs who've worked with this camera, as there seems to be fairly little info available online. We'll be shooting mostly indoors (stock has already been chosen by the DP, I am working as the 2nd unit DP). From the sounds of it, it's a fairly clunky camera to use handheld - which is what I think we will be using it for mostly (shooting children). I have an experienced 1st AC, so, I am more interested in operating, or exposure quirks. Thanks!
  2. I know there are many Krasnogorsk haters on this forum but I wanted to share this awesome project by Russian DP Max Ivanov. It's been 2 years in the works and so much effort has been put into this with a ton of custom machined parts and boards. Here are the specs as shared on the Instagram page for the project: - Camera works with 7-12V batteries (it has a 2-pin lemo connector for power input) - Swiss 100 watt BLDC Motor. (BLDC motors have longer service life and were installed on the Aaton A Minima, XTR Prod, Arri 416.) - Motor controlled and stabilized by a microcontroller - Sync is accurate to 0.001fps at 25fps. (between 0.01-0.001 at other framerates) - Framerates: 1-50 fps - Video tap is based on GoPro internals which allows to record the tap feed in-camera. (Max said he will be adding a cable clamp / adapter since it uses the unreliable micro-hdmi connection from the gopro internals) - Optical viewfinder can be used at the same time as the video tap - Wi-Fi control which allows to set framerate and run/stop wirelessly via your phone - Electronic footage counter. (Maintains footage count after being powered off and has a reset button) - Super 16 gate with ground glass adjustment mechanism. FFD can now be easily tuned and will be precisely set on every model. Max will also be selling a set of tools for calibrating the FFD on this camera so you will be able to calibrate it yourself (I can already hear some of you complaining about how nobody should attempt to do this on their own unless they're a trained technician) - Super 16 viewfinder with correct markings - PL Mount Obviously not a camera for every situation, like narrative projects or basically anything with dialogue. However, I think it's perfect for more abstract projects like music videos or fashion films, especially when you need to move fast and do dynamic handheld stuff. I have one preordered and am super excited to test it out once it's ready! (I think the current eta is March/April)
  3. We have a Brand New Never Installed Arri 235 -2 Perf Movement for sale (2 Perf Movement Only). Price- $18,500

  6. Hi there, I recently bought an Arriflex 2C and it came with an extra handgrip motor. Model CRA-6A from Cinema Products which can either work at 24 or 25 fps. It didn't come with a battery nor a power cable and I'm trying to build one myself. It states that it's a 16-24 V & 2 Amp motor but i can't identify what kind is this input power port. It looks like a downsized version of a 3 pin XLR but I could be wrong. Any ideas on what could it be? I don't know if it's readable in the picture but each pin is marked with a letter: A, B and C. I have guessed that "A" stands for the hot pin, "B" for the cold and "C" for ground. But again I could be wrong and I don't want to apply power without being 100% sure since I could fry the motor. Any help is highly welcomed! I'll update if I find additional info on this. Fran Moreno

  14. Hello all, I'm looking for someone who could still make a film magazine barney. Lee at Cup Camera made a beautiful ARRIMAG 120 one for me about three years ago but I'm not sure he's still in business. Anyone know how to contact him or any other possible sources. Thanks a bunch!

  15. They said the parts were 50K Euros alone. There are some smart people out there. Too bad the scanner companies can't make a decent still film scanner for $1500 that does a better job than what they got now, which is only half-ass for res. They should at least make a flatbed scanner that could duplicate the old drum scanners in IQ. And with all those brains you would figure the person would do other things with their time than scan people's negs. I guess the same thing could be said about me. While I don't have the brains, at old age I've cut back on my still photo work due to health problems, to concentrate working on archival material done by other people. Well, at least he gets paid for it! https://www.photrio.com/forum/threads/scan-of-grain-texture-at-11000ppi.202522/ I didn't know what ppi was...so looked it up. PPI (Pixels Per Inch) refers display resolution, or, how many individual pixels are displayed in one inch of a digital image. DPI (Dots Per Inch) refers to printer resolution, or, the number of dots of ink on a printed image. I looked up dpi for printers and this is what I found... The maximum DPI of a printer is restricted by the hardware it's using. For instance, while inkjet printers can have a resolution ranging from 300 to 720 DPI, laser printers can go anywhere from 600 to 2,400 DPI. So, I wonder if those thousands of ppi the author claimed would be lost in the relatively low-res printers we got? <><><><> Successful Homemaking 1948 DDTJRAC Daniel D.

  16. From most of the sources I have read, it was always written than overexposing film (thicker negative) would lead to increased latitude in the highlights and underexposing film (thinner negative) would lead to increased latitude in the shadows (the opposite is true for digital which makes sense). However, I am currently reading Glen Kennels excellent book on "color and mastering for digital cinema" and am now a bit confused if what I have read regarding overexposing = more highlight detail and vice versa is true. Perhaps I must be misunderstanding something. 1) Now in this book he mentions that to obtain more details in the shadows, you would want to overexpose to obtain a heavy negative and then print down to extend the range into the shadows. This would lead to deeper blacks as he shows in a diagram, but as he also mentions, is that can uncover "details that might otherwise have been lost". As well as to underexpose the negative to assure that all the highlight information is obtained in the negative. Perhaps I am confusing underexposing to ensure that all the highlight details are captured and overexposing to obtain a larger range of details in the highlights as the same thing, when in reality they are different. However, it seems like it would make much more sense to underexpose and then print up to obtain more details in the highlights. Furthermore, I don't understand how underexposing would lead to more details in the shadows compared to as is mentioned in the book, overexposing and then printing down. I hope someone could maybe help me clear up some of my confusions regarding this. 2) Another point I would like to mention is that overexposing the negative is said to lead to more contrast; however, when I'm looking at the curve of the color print film, the gamma of the curve seems to be the same, which is theoretically the definition of contrast in projected print. Although I thought that perhaps the reasoning is that we now have a larger difference between the minimum and maximum amount of density on the color film print. Is this correct?
  17. I am selling a "like new" Lomo UPB-1A developing tank for super 8mm/16mm/35mm. The tank comes with a longer hose and an extended spindle for the spirals. The tank is in like new condition and works as it should, all spirals are in tact and in excellent condition. I am based in the US, and am asking $240 for the tank. The benefit with buying from me is you don't have to wait long for the tank to ship overseas. If youd like to see photos, please DM me with your email address and I could send them. I am only accepting PayPal. If interested, send me a message. Best, Derick

  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. Small Gauge Film Archive To save money, some film collectors made homemade humidor film cans by taping blotter material in the center of the lid. Homemade 16mm humidor film cans. Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive <><><><> 16mm film in lab can soaking in Vitafilm treatment. Photo: D.D. 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.
