Motion picture agitation during development

22 May 2017 - 04:01 PM

Strange question for those members who own and/ or work in motion picture film labs: How does the film get agitated during development?

 

When one develops still film at home, you must "agitate" the film by either shaking, stirring or inverting the container containing the film and the developer. The process is supposed to be crucial to ensure the film is constantly being exposed to fresh developer. Naturally, the jumbo processing machines must use a different method.

 

Does the processing machine used for movie film utilize some way of doing this? Or because the film strip is constantly moving through the developer, that itself provides constant re-exposure to fresh(er) developer?


Lens mount converstion and Mirror polishing

13 February 2017 - 02:06 AM

Someone correct me if there was a more appropriate board to put this under,

 

I have a Super 16mm converted GSMO with a video tap and a repaired/ upgraded circuit board.

 

Lately I've been thinking of either upgrading it to a PL mount or at the very least having the reflex mirror polished/ cleaned. However, I seem to be having issues with finding anyone to do either. I realize it's a rare camera and hard to find- for example- spare parts... but I assumed either polishing a mirror or fitting in a mount housing would be generally a straight forward process (Albeit the hard labor with micro measurements obviously). One I could see an issue with, but both?

 

Anyone have any ideas who may be able to perform this service?
