  3. I just started getting into super-8 last year. I had an old Canon 514 XLS. Late last year, I started experimenting with Ektachrome 100D for outdoor use. As someone with no experience working with actual film, it seemed like the easiest, most affordable film stock to use for outdoor filming. I had to take a break for a bit, but now that I'm coming back, it seems like this stock has been discontinued. I've been trying to figure out what some other good film stocks would be. Does anyone have any suggestions or even a list of different super-8 film stocks? Since I don't know much about film stock, I've been having trouble even figuring out what I should get next and what I should experiment with. I see Wittnerchrome being mentioned a lot on forums, but, besides being unable to make sense of their website, it seems like their cartridges are going for upwards of $30, which is a pretty big jump over what I paid for Ektachrome. Right now, I'm just looking to experiment and figure super-8 filmmaking out, preferably affordably as possible.

  6. Hi Folks, I am wondering what is the Super 8 cartridge pressure pad weight (in grams). Do you have any info regarding those rare figures? Also, may the polyester based new stocks cause problems in Super 8 cameras? Is any adjustment necessary for the pressure pad weight for thinner polyester film? Thank you very much for any info! Erkan
  7. Im really going to miss 100D in S8 and 16mm! But I'm happy the format is still going and getting V3 50D in S8. I have shot V2 50D in S8 and it's some of the best looking S8 i have seen. The V3 200T is incredible too. I would love to shoot it as much as I would shoot reversal, but there's no way I can shoot more than 8 rolls a year with Telecine costs the way they are. In this day and age, i don't think a consumer grade home scanner that loads film reels into a PC would be that hard to make. They had them for still film, why not amature MP? Amature video and music production has boomed thanks to new technology that bypasses expensive studios. S8 and 16mm could have a great new life if someone could fill the missing link! I think we should start a petition to pitch. It would also come in handy for mass amounts of old movie film sitting in most closets and atticks. That service Kodak tried to start was a flop from the start. Just give us a freakin device already!
  8. I hate live lip-syncing but I'm lost on a music video. I've shot it at 18 FPS and it got telescined at 25FPS. I think I should of made a seperate recording with a phone or something. I'm having difficulty getting it to fit. Is there some percentage I need to slow it down in post? Many thanks
  9. Hi, I have 10 rolls of Ektachrome 100D that are surplus to my film project. I would keep them for myself, but I have a few rolls left for my own personal use and think it is wrong to hoard film. These 10 rolls could be perfect for someone elses film project! The stock was purchased fresh from Kodak in December 2012 - and has been kept frozen since. As you know this is discontinued stock - there is now no colour reversal stock available from Kodak - and these are going for high prices on eBay, HOWEVER I am not greedy like some of those eBay sellers, and therefore I am open to reasonable offers. I accept payment by paypal or bank transfer. Postage / shipping costs to your area are negotiable - but I will only ship registered. Please drop me a PM if you are interested. Thanks, Jamie.
  10. WONDERFUL specimen in the original aluminium case. With a crystal clear lens that has been recently tested with Tri-X and 100D. £250 GB Pounds plus shipping.
  11. With a crystal clear lens and everything in excellent condition. A lovely example for £200 GB Pounds plus the shipping.
  12. if there is a more appropriate forum or sub-forum for this question, please let me know. i have some documenation footage of a live performance which includes super 8 film projections (18fps) on a screen in the background. the footage was shot with a GH2 at 1080i (60i). i ingested the footage into FCP using the compressor setting for "Pro Res 422 for interlaced material". the footage looks pretty good in the timeline but there is definitely a film flicker which i'm assuming is due to the inconsistency of frame rates between the super8 projection and the frame rate of the GH2 which was capturing the performance. my question is, what can I do at this point, if anything, to correct or reduce the flicker, and what would be the best way to shoot something similar (scene that includes 18fps film projection) in the future using a GH2? thanks in advance, _jc

  14. Hello, I'm trying to process Tri-x super 8 in a Morse G3 tank for the first time. Except for a couple frames at the beginning and end of the roll- it's all coming out as negative. What point in the process could I be messing up that's causing this? Does it sound like insufficient re-exposure? Thank you in advance for your advice. I haven't posted on this forum before but I've been reading it for a while and I really appreciate the resource.
  15. Looks like Kodak wants us to get excited. Here's a video of the assembly line for 50D.

  17. Hi Cinematography.com people... I've just released a director-cinematographer 1st promo, shot with no budget other than stock, developing and telecine and would love some feedback if you had a few minutes. The idea was to create a mood and tone rather than a certain narrative. https://vimeo.com/54611682 H.Grimace "Lands of Gold and Green" With kind thanks, Ash (Ashley Michael Briggs).

  19. ROCHESTER, NY (December 12, 2012) – Kodak is making its KODAK VISION3 50D Color Negative Film 7203 available in the Super 8 mm format. This fine-grained, daylight-balanced stock will be available in January 2013, giving filmmakers more options and flexibility for shooting on location. KODAK VISION3 50D film was introduced last year in the 35mm and 16mm formats. It is a low-speed color negative optimized for capturing images in natural or simulated daylight conditions. The VISION3 Film imaging technology incorporated into the stock makes it the world’s finest grain negative with extended highlight latitude – as much as two stops of additional overexposure – as well as better signal-to-noise performance, especially in over- and under-exposure. It also offers improved color consistency over the entire exposure range. These features provide filmmakers with the ability to shoot challenging high-contrast exteriors, and follow the action into bright highlight scenes without loss of image discrimination. “There are a wide range of Super 8 users around the globe, and this gives them another stock for their toolbox,” says Kodak’s Mike Ryan, director of film technology for the Entertainment Imaging Division. “Now filmmakers turning to the small gauge format can take advantage of the finest grain motion picture technology on the market to craft the distinctive look they desire from a film captured image.” The ability to render images full of color and detail over an extended exposure range through more efficient light utilization also produces cleaner film-to-digital transfers, bringing benefits to the post production process. This enables digital dodging and burning in post to bring out highlight detail and the extraction of additional information from the shadows. With this addition to the Kodak Super 8 film portfolio, filmmakers can choose from three color negatives ranging in speeds from EI 50 to 500, or the KODAK TRI-X Black & White Reversal Film 7266.

  20. I'm based in the UK and have two recently serviced BOLEX 5120 Super 8 cameras, both in very good and fully operational condition with crystal clear 72mm zoom lenses. = £75 GB Pounds each plus actual shipping expense. I also have a recently serviced top-of-the-range ELMO 1012SX-L Super 8 camera, in excellent and fully operational condition with a crystal clear 75mm zoom lens. = £125 GB Pounds plus the actual shipping expense. I have further images and I'm happy to answer any technical questions regarding the cameras.
  21. I was wondering what the protocol or standard practice is on storing processed Super-8 film. Bagged and in the refridgerator seems to be the concensus for undeveloped Super-8 film, but I've been having trouble finding any specific mention of what to do with processed Super-8 film. What do you guys typically do with your processed film?
  22. I have never used a Super-8 camera (or film camera in general) before, but I ended up buying a Canon 514 XL-S with the case for $20 at a garage sale. I want to test it out to make sure it works and then, assuming it does, shoot a few projects on it and experiment with shooting on film. I've purchased one cartridge of Ektachrome 100D to experiment with, and it's currently zip-locked in my fridge. I've been reading up on film cameras, film stock, and Super-8 in general. However, the one thing which I cannot figure out is what setting my camera should be switched to when dealing with daylight-balanced film. This question has already been asked on this forum a couple times, but it got conflicting answers and it left me a bit confused. The Ektachrome case itself says that you should set your camera to tungsten balance and that the cartridge will disable the internal filter. I'm wondering if this is correct. I'd appreciate any help on the matter.
