Splicing Kodak 2253 16mm film

Recommended Posts

I need advice on splicing Kodak 2253 16mm film. What type of film cement?

Best way to splice it. I am using it for home movies, direct projection in a bell & howell 16mm projector. No plans to telecine or reprint.

Thanks to all

Michael

2253 is the polyester-base version of 7251.

How did you process it? VNF-1 is obsolete. Or are you cutting old film?

2253 processing I haven't shot is yet I will update when I shoot and process.

Yale Film and Video is going to try and process it.

 

Got to get tape or a tape splicer.

Thanks to all, so far.

They will be processing in E6 so the colour may be interesting.

The best tape splicer is the CIR. it uses unperforated tape and punches its own holes.

In the US I understand the Rivas was more popular but it uses pre-punched tape which of course is more expensive and difficult to get hold of. I can still get CIR tape off the shelf in London.

Polyester is impervious to film cement, so you have to use tape.

Ultrasonic Splicer is best.

I'd question the expense for home movies, though. I paid about £45 for my used 16mm. CIR and my Super-8 tape splices have lasted 35 years. Tape is a couple of pounds sterling a roll.
