Ta'

 

It's a bit random as it is a hair video but turned out pretty well, was one of those shoots where the client, who is extremely talented, didn't really understand that you can't shoot a super 8 piece in about 20 minutes and so was a rushed shoot, which I hate.

Was that bucket processed? I'm curious to try some 16mm.

That would be pretty cool since you haven't used film since 2003. I hope you do try it and share the results.

Probably not curious enough to spend the money, though.

It's worse than that, I haven't shot Super-8 since 2001 or 16mm. since 1991. Hardly likely to when my DLSR shoots HD video. Sigh.

On the positive (haha) side plenty of 16mm. archive comes my way for viewing on the Steenbeck. Some of it pretty important. Everest expeditions, that sort of thing.

If you really want to try something different, try using Rodinal as a developer. Sharper but much grainier, especially in Super8.

Yes, it was bucket processed with pretty much the set-up I initially asked about.

 

Am just about to start on a new super 8 project and was hoping to use the same chemicals but I went to look at the Ilford Rapid Fixer and the 4 odd litres remaining in the original tub look pretty cloud so will probably just have to dump them. Annoying as cash is tight at the minute but then it was bought over 2 and a half years ago so is pretty dead I'd imagine.

The Kodak Photoflo will be fine, not sure about the Ilfostop. I believe you can do a test where it goes purple if it is off, anyone care to elaborate on this as I can't remember the exact method of deducing this?
