  1. I've just been comparing the auto-exposure readings from my Canon 518 Auto Zoom to those taken with a Sekonic L-308B light meter set to 100 ASA and 18fps. Camera was loaded with Ektachrome 100D, so no filter engaged, and set to 18fps. In all the lighting conditions in which I tested and compared results, the camera's internal meter (set to auto) showed an aperture two full stops less than the external meter. So: if external meter read f/2, camera would say f/4. I understand that reversal stock has very little latitude for over/under exposure, so these results seem to suggest that us
  2. I'm currently filming a western, shot in the west (Colorado), on film. It's called THE LAST RESORT. Shooting with a Canon 1014XL-S. Filming it on Kodak Tri-X 7266. On location. So far, the film looks amazing! This is a Warehouse 9 Production. I wish I could post a picture, but the image requirements are too small... I don't have a teaser yet, but check out my other film projects. https://vimeo.com/user2463860
  3. Hey there, I work on 16mm and super 8 film and have a pretty sufficient editing setup in my home studio -- rewinds, splicers, etc. However, I really need to get my hands on a film trim bin (big standing bin on wheels with the muslin bag to catch tails, and rack of pins for organizing clips). I've searched google a million times and can't find any for sale, just posts by filmmakers talking about having one in their studio. I know they have to come from somewhere! I emailed Dwight Cody and he doesn't have any at the moment, though I'll keep checking back. I've been looking for about a year.
  4. Hi everyone, Did some shooting a few weeks back, three rolls of 7219, all from Pro8mm. First two rolls worked great, but the moment I loaded up the third roll, the problems began. As I started rolling with my Beaulieu 6008s, I kept getting an error light after a few seconds of "rolling". After some trial and error with the sharpie trick, I figured out the cartridge was jammed. I tried multiple times the slap trick to loosen the film, to no avail. Eventually, I watched a Pro8mm video that suggested pulling some of the film out gently, then rolling it back into the cartridge. Th
  5. Hey everyone, I recently got my hands on this camera. From what I understand, it takes six AA batteries. I have been unable to find any manual for this camera. From what I believe, the battery compartment is in the handle. I opened up the handle and I definitely see two contacts for what could be one big battery, but certainly not for AAs. In fact, if you put AAa in there they just roll around. Can someone please help? What kind of battery should I be looking for? The chamber looks cylindrical but I'm not sure. Thanks
  6. I bought a 1014xls in awesome condition last summer. I've put about 5 carts through it with no issues. Now my counter is stuck at the end and won't return to zero so the camera won't run. Is this something I can fix easily? Or is it a major repair?
  7. I just found out I can get access to a Nizo 156 XL, figured I could do something with film once. I have a few questions regarding certain details since there's no manual online to be found. - Is there real manual exposure with the 156 XL? Since there's no manual, is the green switch actual an aperture control? Since there is a manual setting it might as well be the case, otherwise there's just the +1 switch, I get the function of this. - Any point in trying the SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33 40? Stepping it down from 49 to 52 could still work I guess. Would be even better to be able to ge
  8. Hello guys and gals, So, yesterday, while processing some Tri-X Super 8, something nightmareish happened during the second developpement after re-exposure : after 1 min in the 2nd developer (where the emulsion properly reacted and darkened), it slightly started to lift from the plastic and then it litteraly disloved into the developper : no floating gelatin flakes, just a plain black developer... The weird thing is that I already processed Tri-X this way, here is an example : https://vimeo.com/326184819 Here is my protocole, I have included as much info as I can : 1 – Soaking in
  9. Hello folks, I'm new on cinematography.com, i'm getting into super-8 as a member of an analog associative Photo/Cinema called ZebraLab based in Geneva : https://zebralab.info/. I am also a photographer by job. With the guys from the lab, we are/have built two machines to cut reels of Fomapan R100 DS8x30,5M to 4x S8x15M to be loaded in Lomo Reloadable Cartridge. That make it really affordable as we buy from Foma factory shop, we are around 7€ for the film and around 3€/film for processing (detail below). According to Super8Wiki, Lomo Reloadable Cartridge acts as 64T/40D -> http://su
  10. Im new to the forum and have a long question, but I have read a lot of posts here before so I am turning to you all for help! I bought my first super 8 camera, a Canon 310xl a couple of months ago, and in January, I bought two cartridges of Tri-X reversal to shoot with. I am a college student, so I did not have a chance to shoot until last week, so until then I kept the two carts in the fridge to keep cool. So last week, I finally opened my first box of Tri-X and loaded it into my camera. I notched hack the cart so I could control the built in filter as well! I turned the camera on and p
  11. Posted Today, 05:48 PM Hello everyone, I am very fascinated by the anamorphic lenses and the effect obtained with them. Looking on the internet for a lens that would not cost too much I found a person who sells an anamorphic projection lens. The lens is an Optical Iper16 2x Anamorphic, I do not know if any of you own it or know it. I would like to use the lens with a Canon 518 AutoZoom and I wanted to ask you: Is it possible to use this lens with my Canon 518? What kind of adapters should I take to fix the anamorphic lens on the camera lens? This is the link forse the Image of the lens:
  12. Hello, It's that time of the year again! I'll be shooting outdoors, in color. I'm not sure what the Daylight/Tungsten filter setting should be. 1. Does the camera automatically detect that 7203 is a Daylight stock, therefore effectively pushing the 85filter out of the way? 2. Does the user have to set the filter switch to Tungsten to make sure the 85filter is out of the way? 3. Should I just always keep the filter switch set to Tungsten (light bulb), so that the 85filter remains out of the way? Thank you!!!

  14. Hello... I have a cart of the new Super8 Ektachrome 7294 (100 ASA). I would like to shoot some film at night of the christmas lights in the yards and houses on my block. I have never tried to shot film in the dark before and I am looking for any tips you can give me. My camera is a Canon 1014 XL-S. The shutter in my camera has a variable opening angle. Usually it is set to 150 degrees. But I can change it to 220 degrees for filming in dim light. I have not used this shutter setting before but I thought I would try. I can set the camera to 9 fps, 18 fps and 24 fps. The manual
  15. Hello everyone, If this has been covered in a previous post please link, I was unable to find much on a few cursory searches. I am requesting advice or suggestions for a good lab who I can send Super 8 cartridges to for processing, telecine, and most importantly good quality post and colour grading. I am based in the UK (London). Normally I rely on someone local who hand-process the film and does all the post for me. I have always been very happy with his work, but I'm interested to see what kind of results I can get from a 'lab'. I am aware of Andec in Berlin ( andecfilm.de ) and
  16. Hi, this is Pablo Secaira from Laboratorio Abierto de Fotografía Ecuador. We are in South America. We have a project that use ten super 8 Ektachrome 100D reversal film and we need to develop this. We own an Analogue Laboratory. So we need some advises to begin the process. Is there any thing that we have to take care, or prevent before we start. And where we can purchase this chemistry near our location. If you have experience / anecdotes on this topic please share with us it would be great.. Thank you so much for your help. Pablo. LAF Ecuador.
  17. Hello everyone. I accidentally left the Wratten (85b) filter on while I was shooting with a Vision 50D in daylight. anyone could tell me what to expect? I am sure that the color temperature will be much warmer with red/yellow/orange overcast over the image. If so, there's any chance that i can slightly correct the "problem" in post prod? i've also used the automatic exposure of the camera and my biggest fear is that the image will look too much dark and underexposed to be used. Anyone with the same experience? Thanks for the attention.
  18. Hey all, hoping someone can give me some advice. I've just purchased my first super 8 camera...a Nizo 801 Macro. I shot my first film on it over the last few days whilst in Namibia. I've read everywhere that shooting at 24fps I should get a run time of around 2.5 minutes but as I was shooting I realised it was going down way faster. I was shooting 24fps the whole time. Ive just tested the camera without any film in and my run times going by the dial are: 18fps 1.38 mins 24fps 1.08 mins 50fps 0.34 mins Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a fault with the camera? W
  19. Hello, (I don't have much experience in filmmaking). For a project, I am planning to make some 3d animations mixed with some digital footage. My plan is to then shoot the projection of this video in film (either super8 or 16mm). My questions are: is this doable? what kind of digital projector do you recommend? is there going to be any flickering problem? what about color balance? thanks.
  20. Hi everyone! First topic here at the forum! So I bought a really cheap and beautiful meopta camera, the Ag1 supra model. It cost like 6 € in a store in Czech Republic, so I just thought "This is almost free", and bought some film also. Been searching for a while and haven't found any info on how to load the film. Don't want to risk it because I don't really know anything about it and I was wondering if any of you guys know anything about this Here some info about the camera: A8 G1 SUPRA Amateur movie camera for 2×8 mm Super film. Lens: Mirar 2.8/12.5 mm Frontal attachments: Mirar –

  22. Hello I was wondering if anybody had any advice on this combination. Should I leave the filter at sunlight, I had a blue negative in the past, but I think that was from tungsten film.. Also any advice on external meter usage, would I have to make changes to it, keep it at 50 or rate it at a different iso? Thanks for looking
  23. Hi I have a canon 814 autozoom electronic and i would like to know if my camera will read a vision3, 500t as 400 asa or 250 asa ? Thank you
  24. Hi There, I recently bought a Canon Auto Zoom 318m camera from eBay. Everything on the camera works and functions as normal, however when I got some film back from development & scanning I noticed that the film was very warm/orange tinted. I wondered if it had something to do with airport security scanning as I tested the camera out while on holiday, however when I tried another reel of film the results were pretty much the same; it was as if I had put a very rich orange/red filter over the lens. The film I used was reversal Wittnerchrome 200D film which I understand is daylight ba
  25. Hello everyone I have recently owned a Nizo 4056 (so even series that 2056-3056-4080 ...) I try once and for all to interpret results for different dandruff. I will expose them and if you could guide me ... Indeed I am a little lost (and French that translates everything) The probe of the 6-pin camera reads in this order: 40, 40/64, 64/100, 100/160, 160/250, 250/400, 400/640. I can also add photos ;-) So here is what I found: Kodak Tri-x: read 250 ASA tungsten position (thus underexposed by 1/3?) Kodak 50D: read 64 ASA tungsten position (so under expose 1/3?) Kodak 500t: 400 A
