Hello,

I'm looking to get into S8. Never done film, and come from a television production background. I am willing to spend for bells and whistles (lens interchangability, variable shutter, intervelometer etc. Do I need to be concerned about film emultion speed selectability on an S8 camera? The Beaulieu cameras appear to be the way to get these features.

Thanks.

....well you should worry about manual aperature. Make sure your camera has it. The Leica's and Beaulieu's do and have interchangable lenses. So that narrows it down for you.

When you get your camera run some exposure latitude tests to find the look you want. Each camera is different.

Hello,

Understood. Coming from the television world, I'm used to having everything manual. I realize that working with film offers its own challenges. I must think differently. I've been reading, and reading and reading. There's a lot to learn. By the way, I was only able to view your 2mb clip. It was interesting to note the luminance response where the sun was shining on your birds feathers.

Thanks for your insight.
