  • Landscapes shot in Super 16 
    To me Super 16 and 2 perf 35 are two very different paint brushes. Both formats are similar in cost as you get 22 min at 2 perf 35 for a 100 ft mag and you get 11 or so minutes /400 ft mag on SS16...

  • Soft FX or Mitchell Diffusion? 
    I have a Mitchell A diffusion filter made in the late 50's or early 60's.  It's a very subtle effect that is not "misty" at all, and doesn't feel too unfocused. I don't know where one would fi...
