  • Would these missing scenes help? 
    Agreed, but I'd still like to see the hour of stuff they cut out. Would it make the movie better? Nope. It would sure be interesting though.Funny enough, Aliens, The Abyss and Terminator 2 director...
  • What camera would you recommend to a film student? 
    Then you may have bought the wrong camera. The entire purpose of the pocket camera is to NOT have it in a rig.The moment you put it in a rig, you could use a whole host of larger/higher quality cam...
  • WTB: HME Base Station & Belt Packs / All-in-one Headsets 
    Well ok then, I'll allow it.
  • 16MM to S16 projector conversion 
    Note that he doesn't usually recenter the lens as most 16mm projectors have wide enough lenses to cover super 16 as is. You'd just send him the gate from an Eiki or Kodak pageant.
  • what is the cause of the jittery footage? 
    Bottom line is: The 700d, reset to factory settings, shouldn't produce any choppy footage. If it a camera setting that has been skewed, resetting those settings should clear that back to factory. I...
  • Out of the EU 
    So, I take it the down-vote means my 'Trump-esq' comedy didn't cut it, huh? Oh well, back to binge-watching the Young Turks and hugging trees  .
  • Super 16 converted to use double super 8? 
    Brent, This was implemented back in 2012 as per my UltraPan8 Facebook page, i.e.  https://www.facebook...=page_info "The second adaptation utilizes the full 16mm width of 2 perf...
  • Oscillating the ISO on Alexa 
    Actually that was what they said, but I got lost writing it properly since english is not my first language.  They wanted to change the balance, not the dynamic range.  
  • Hand processing vs Lab / Reducing coasts of Film 
     They are not so tricky but you have to be very careful with them and know them thoroughly (like all the Soviet filmmaking equipment. this is true whether talking about Konvas, Krasnogorsk, Ki...

  • No Bayer Pattern CMOS systems 
    Actually the first Sony SP betacams that came out  in 1989 had Peltier coolers on the blue CCD. They were also used in high-end video surveillance cameras.
  • Live Recording Music Video 
    Here's what we ended up with: We had about 3 hours to light the set and another 3 to setup the cameras and grip. We didn't hang any lights down. They were all on the ground using tripods. Most...
  • D-19 and Orwo Un54 Reversal Home Processing 
    You can treat it the same as trix. Whatever you do for that also works for un54. With d19 I do 7 min at 21 degrees. Naturally it does depend on your exposures and on your personal developing routine.
  • White Balance 
    Thanks!
  • What does it really mean to shoot open gate? 
    Open Gate has no value if shooting with 2X anamorphic lenses because you use a 1.20 : 1 sensor area to get a final 2.40 : 1 image -- so the wider Open Gate doesn't help. However for spherical...
  • Which Series? What Year? Help please. 
    As far as I'm aware Cooke didn't make a series 2 Speed Panchro in a 35mm focal length, and series 2 lenses were always engraved as such, so it's likely a series 1 from around the 40s.It should cove...

  • Shooting a "first person" sequence with minimal possible motion blur 
    Yea, you can use a super high shutter speed for sure.
  • Right Lens for a human subjective 
    I think the generally accepted lenses are Full Frame: 50mm, Super 35: 35mm, Super 16: 18mm or so.
