  1. Just wondering if anyone has expierience with using Illuminas alongside Superspeeds and which one would be better. It'll be on a Krasnogorsk 3 with Pl mount conversion on a helmet cam pov rig. And many shots will be in low-light wide open, and just looking for which will be sharpest. And if either have odd quirks which might negate the others image quality.
  2. Hi all, I wanted to share what I've done with my Bolex EBM regarding the battery and maybe help any other people out there. I've done a lot of searching online, but I realised I would love to power it from a V lock type battery, for ease of use. I purchased a SmallRig battery plate (SmallRig Battery Adapter Plate 3204). I went for this one as it wasn't too expensive and after sending them an email, confirmed that the outputs on the plate are regulated (as the Bolex EBM requires 12V). Another benefit of this plate is that it has a power button, meaning the you don't need to get a cable with a switch to power on/off the camera. The button makes it much cleaner too. The plate was screwed on the back of the camera. This required a bit of modding and making the existing holes on the back of the camera a bit bigger (took me 3 minutes to do this). I made a custom cable, using a simple 5.5mm x 2.5mm DC barrel plug, and a Amphenol Tuchel connector (T 3475 005). Pin 3 is +12V and pin 4 is ground. This connector is really well made and fits perfectly with the camera, worth it in my opinion. Once the cable was made, I simply plugged it into the 12V output on the plate, and the camera works perfectly. Currently I'm planning on adding a small monitor and a small video assist as well, which will both be powered from the 12V outputs on the battery itself with a Dtap cable. The only drawback with this method is that you in reality need to use a video tap, as the viewfinder is blocked by the battery/plate. With a smaller plate and battery, it could have probably been avoided. So far I'm quite happy with this setup!
  3. Hey everyone ! I know this is a topic that's been mentioned on this page before, however I wanted to confirm a few things as it hasn't been addressed in a while. I'm looking to convert my double-perf Bolex to single, so it can take Vision3 stock. This is a H16 non-reflex model which I bought for very cheap, so I'm not too worried about the DIY nature of the conversion. I hope to grind down the teeth on the side where they're not needed, however I'm unsure whether I should use a dremel / sandpaper whilst the rollers are still IN the camera, or whether I should try to remove them myself before grinding them down. I've read a few forums mentioning how the rollers are aligned, and that taking them out might prevent the camera from running properly if they aren't placed back in their exact spot. It would be great if someone could clear up whether this is the case. I'm also struggling to work out how to remove the rollers, as they seem firmly attached to the camera. Would appreciate any guidance on this.
  4. I’m having a problem loading my film. When I load the feed side of the mag and run the film through the take up side, I plug the mag into the camera and do a test run but there’s a bad sound and the film gets spooled up in the feed opening, there’s too much slack that doesn’t go away when winding, and the stock gets punctured. Is there any way to fix this? I changed to a different mag and it’s still a problem.
  5. 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.
  6. This blimp is in really nice condition for it's age. I think it'd be a classy display piece - especially if you pick up a wooden tripod for it. This is for a LOCAL SALE ONLY in Los Angeles. I won't/can't ship this heavy blimp, unfortunately. I do not have a case for this blimp, so someone will need to pick up and pay cash (or Zelle) in person. I usually live in NYC but plan to visit LA at the end of April. If timing doesn't work for a sale while I'm visiting LA, a family member can assist with the transaction. I never actually used this blimp, but in the early 2010s I did have an electrician friend who worked at Clairmont Camera change out the cracked old plastic power cable connector on it. It used to have a very old (and unrecognizable to me) power connector, and my friend changed it to a 12V 4-pin Cannon (XLR). So that's the connector that can now power the blimp (to power camera inside and light inside the blimp). I can make no guarantees about the functionality of this blimp and how much it could quiet down a 16S since it's been a while since I did a test run of a camera in it. From my memory, I think one plate was for the an Arri 16S camera, and the other type of plate was for the Arri 16M camera, but I don't remember if I actually ever tested both my 16S and 16M cameras in this blimp when I owned them, so I really can't make any promises there either. If I had the space for this at my NYC apartment (I really don't, unfortunately), I'd keep this and put it on display. As you can see in the pictures, there are some small spots of light rust. You can also see the fabric accordion style matte box bellows have gotten a little rough over the years. This was stored in a climate controlled house (not a garage), but there are a few signs of it's age.

  7. I recently purchased a Kern Switar 10mm f1.4 lens, which appears to be in good condition, for use on my Bolex EBM with a c mount adapter. However, when mounting this lens I encountered a strange problem where it would only focus at extremely close distances and leaves the rest out of focus. Seems like this lens is not in such great shape after all but wondering if anyone knows a fix? Thanks for any help!
  8. 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)

  13. 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!

  15. 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!

  17. 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
  18. 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.

  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
