In Topic: ND filter recommendation for film

06 August 2018 - 02:23 AM

What is the thing requiring the NDs.  Getting stuck with fast film in bright sunlight? Something else.

 

Much as I like and enjoy Adrian's voice on the forum, I was puzzled by the comment that NDs darken the viewfinder.

 

For a given film speed and exposure, any change in the NDs come with a change in T stop.  The only thing affecting the brightness of the viewfinder (for most cameras) is film speed and the desired exposure.

 

Or did I brain fart?


In Topic: Weird "bar" effect in B&W 16mm testroll - HELP

Hey Willem,

Which ground glass do you have, which eyepiece do you have? I had a look, an ACL II, big self leveling Kinoptik finder and Visual Products S16 ground glass. Took the lens off and shone a light into the port. Didn't see any of your observations. But the viewing image is big with only a small periphery. The Angeneuix finders I seem to remember have a wider periphery, the visble area outside of frame,  they may allow what you saw.

 

What exactly did Bernie say? Is he making you think, solve it yourself, like a test or a right of passage....

And never have a block of text bigger than 3 lines, no one wants to read that.

 

Hey,

I think it depends how good it is......

Think of a well known film with little dialogue, or passages with little dialogue, which you can access online. Study that. How do they do it. Consider the context. Meaning, who the script is developed by and intended for. If a script was a collaboration between a writer and director, it will be written to serve that purpose. If you are just writing for yourself, it may be different, but with little dialogue, may share some characteristics..

 

Have a look at the start of the Hampton Fancher/Peoples/Scott Bladerunner script, available online.

 

Then ask some more particular questions.
