Topics I've Started

Lightmeter app

25 December 2018 - 03:39 PM

I've been using LightMeter app by David Quiles Amat.

I'm still confused how to get an accurate aperture reading.

The dial doesn't really fall in a specific spot. It seems like a range of options. Little help?

50s/60s era consumer tripods

10 November 2018 - 01:43 PM

Since the 16mm/8mm cameras from this era are so well-made, I would imagine any tripods would be equally effective. I've never come across any from that era. Do they not exist or did they not last?

Feeler: short ends/recans/expired 16mm

14 October 2018 - 02:06 PM

I need to test my new B&H 627. I'm just seeing what's out there for cheap short ends/recans/expired 16mm. One or two perf, doesn't matter. I'll even consider R8. Operative word is "cheap." Quality is less important as I'm just testing the camera.

Wide angle lens for B&H 627

10 October 2018 - 11:55 AM

I'm taking suggestions for a good wide angle lens for my 627. It came with the standard 20mm sunomatic lens as well as a Taylor Hobson 2.5" tele. (I don't know what that would be in mm, but judging by the matching finder lens, it would appear to be a close-up lens.) Those are pretty standard focal lengths, but I'd like to have a wide option. I suppose I'd also have to find a matching finder lens. Thoughts?


Kodak 7363

01 October 2018 - 07:32 PM

I've searched the site on this topic, but I still have questions.

What even is hi-contrast b&w stock? I gather it's useful in practical special effects, ie bluescreen. Is optical printing its sole reason for existing?

The only reason I ask is I can get it fairly cheap. If it's an acceptable 16mm camera film, I'd like to use it as a training medium.
