  1. As I looked at an 8mm Wolverine scan, it was very fast. The same film done with a Retroscan was exported at 17fps and looked slow. I read 16fps is supposed to be the standard 8mm silent speed. Yet it was very slow at 17fps and had to be sped up 25% in post. And it is not an isolated case. Do you have problems with your scans when the output does not match your idea of what the fps should be? What do you do...eyeball it for speed? Any tricks to settling on the right speed other than eyeballs? <><><><> Weegee Weegee wannabe Selections from Press Photographers Archive DDTJRAC
  2. So I recently bought a 16mm Cannon Scoopic (the gray version) and I plan to shoot a short film with it this upcoming summer. Due to a low budget, I plan on using nothing but natural light during the entire production. My Cannon has a circular dial to choose what I presume, is the film speed. It shows DIN and below it, it has a corresponding ASA number. Pics will be attached. My question is, if i shoot on 250D film stock, how do I choose the correct option when i film? ALL the options on the dial are as follows: 26DIN/320ASA, 23DIN/160ASA, 20DIN/80ASA, 17DIN/40ASA, 14DIN/20ASA, 11DIN/10ASA. I will be acting as a my own DP, so if you could explain in layman's terms that would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hello, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I will be reading amongst the other posts to understand better the format and its possibilities, but for beginning I am wondering if a Super8 Camera exists that has a video out, for instantaneous screening of the observed? I would also like such a camera to posses auto and manual focus modes and film speed adjustment. The Bolex 5120 has a 'Mon.' input jack, is this for the output of a video signal to a monitor? Kieron.
