In Topic: Powering up an Arri BL. How much juice needed? Fuses??

17 August 2018 - 02:22 AM

a little corrosion on the fuses

It certainly looks a bit crusty in there. Your camera seems to have been kept in a barn for a while.

Maybe a bit of a cleanup is in order.


In Topic: Best vintage 16mm camera?

17 August 2018 - 02:19 AM

 

Say, that idea of a bore examination camera is a good one!  Makes sense!  If you are using it for a naval gun, you wouldn't need close focus capabilities

I've used a borescope lens adapted to a Nikon. It's just a periscope arrangement- looks like a long gas pipe with a 45deg mirror at the end. Nowadays they use fibre optics but this was rigid. Like this

In Topic: Tell me about this Fuji film stock

14 August 2018 - 01:20 PM

Did Fuji make many different stocks for printing?

There's only one in my 1980 Samuelson's manual, 8814 Fujicolor Positive.

Most Kodak prints made before the early 80s  when they came up with a low-fade stock have pinked.. It was the dominant material so examples of other print stocks are rarer. Your input may be quite useful.

Relief. My guess is they may have tried to lift it by the deck- always a no-no. I have stickers on mine saying "NO LIFT" in big unfriendly-looking letters and "LIFT" on the frame.

The casters you need are something like this.

or whatever's available there and you probably need a 10mm. Allen key to get them off.

These may be a bit marginal for the weight, but unless you're going to make a habit of moving it (and after what's just happened I suspect you're not) they should serve.

Mine are not too good and I'll be replacing them next time out, but I was fortunate enough to have mine moved by two grips last time (it was being used as a practical prop) and they treated it like glass. Respect.


In Topic: Are many of the vintage color films effectively lost?

10 August 2018 - 07:02 AM

Interestingly, Star Wars was the last western film to have IB prints made, in London for the UK release. A few are rumoured to be in private hands (including George Lucas's) and they are very occasionally screened.

Shortly afterwards, Technicolor London sold the gear to China where apparently it was used till the 90s.
