LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Readers pass along their impressions of smallformat issue no. 1/2005

SMALL FORMAT 02/2006 INVITES YOU TO EXPLORE THESE TOPICS:

Portrait of Pro8mm
James Grahame visits America?s largest small format film forge in Burbank, California. Film cutting, processing, digital transfer - our reporter takes a look behind the scenes of this company and interviews company president Phil Vigeant.

Digital Film Transfers
Trevor Markwart transferred his raw Super-8 footage as uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 direct to hard drive SDI, the maximum possible for Standard Definition. It is NTSC 720 x 486, essentially the same as digiBeta in image quality. He introduces six international transfer services that will conjure small-format film to digital signals for the hard drive.

Winners and Losers
Heiko Riemann lists a lot of Super 8 movie cameras. He tested their ability to shoot at ISO/ASA 40 and 160, and also at ISO/ASA 50, 64, 100, 200, 250 and even 400. Which cameras will be useless in the future, and which models are particularly commendable for their ability to run all new kinds of film stock?

British Film Collectors Convention
John Clancy writes about the BFCC - the best and original film collector?s convention in Great Britain. The conventions are held at the Ealing Town Hall in London. Super 8 has been the mainstay of the convention since its inception and this is still largely the case, although the BFCC now enjoys 35mm shows as well as long established 16mm shows.

Monsieur 9.5mm
Jürgen Lossau about Daniel Colland and his large-scale lab Ciné Dia with 57 employees. He has more than 1,000 customers worldwide still working with 9.5mm cameras. A club in France alone counts 250 members, all of them using 9.5 mm. But he has a lot of customers also in Great Britain, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and Norway. Colland uses Fuji Velvia from Japan. It is 35 mm wide and unsprocketed. Out of this material we make three strips of film 9.5 mm each with centered sprocketing.

Flashscan 8: The New Film-Scanner
MWA-Nova of Berlin, Germany, presents a new real-time film scanner for 8mm, Super 8 and 9.5mm. The Flashscan 8 has been developed to offer a truly professional method of scanning these formats in real time, at a price that is cheaper than a Super 8mm gate on a traditional Telecine, whilst providing the same if not better results. Features include: all analogue video output formats (SDI optional); sound head; variable speed 25 frames - 3 frames per second; integrated primary and secondary colour correction; negative scanning. Users report their experiences.

So is my signature link pointed towards the right web address?

I'm hoping that there is a more "current" address for Small Format Magazine because the link I have in my siggy is kind of old now and offers no call to action to become a subscriber, the Super-8 Today link Rocks!

I don't understand how it could be critical for Small Format magazine to get a certain number of subscribers to survive yet there is no mention about subscribing on the small format magazine link. If there is another link I would really appreciate knowing it so I can update my signature link.

Thanks for that Giles. I wish the call to subscribe was a bit more aggressive for Small Format. With the long shipping time, asking people to order a test issue before subscribing might take some of the interest away in the magazine simply because of how long it takes for the test issue to arrive.

Any one want to compare the two magazine links I have, I think constructive criticism will only help.

One other thing, ON Mac OS9 Mozilla, I can't see the middle column on the Small Format site. Anybody else on Mac OS9 Mozilla or any other browser have the same problem?

they used to stock Small Format at the Widescreen Centre in London and i used to pick up a copy every time i went up there for film. last time i visted they weren't stocking SF any more; in fact they said they didn't stock any ciné publications any more - this is London's premier 8mm ciné store?
