I wanna shoot a S-16mm short with Plus-X reversal stock 7265 and I'm wondering if there's 400ft rolls available in the US cause we only have 100ft here in France...
By the way, anybody tried to shoot S-16 B&W with print, intermediate or even sound film ?
The sensitivity of the film won't be an issue since I will shoot outside in the sun ( I hope) with Zeiss primes... B)
Does the camera should be modified if I shoot with those kind of films ?
Thanks !

I have a good supply of near thirty year old 7276 mag stripe Plus-X, which is still yielding good results (wedge tests at the lab came up fine) - The lab will only develop it into neg tho, so it is very grainy...

the mag stripe of sound film will cut into the super16 image area, unless you mean optical sound ? which I dont think requires any particular film type...

As for my 7276, I have finally got all the chems needed to do reversal devoloping myself here - but only have a 33' lomo tank so have to shoot very short rolls or risk cutting through footage from a 100 or 400' load ...

its nice thinking i'm using film as old as my camera :P

Print, intermediate and sound negative were not designed for reversal processing. Camera films should normally be perforated short-pitch (1R-2994).

7265 is normally available in 400-foot lengths, but it may need to be shipped in if it is not widely used in a particular country. Don't know the local details that might require a minimum order quantity.

Optical sound also uses the S16 image area, however unless you are using an auricon to record sound optically in camera, then you can probably use double perf and the lab might be able to make a single perf print with optical sound anyway. Im not sure if that will make things complicated tho.

Should not matter. If they are printing an optical track, they have to mask off the soundtrack area on the "picture" pass, or the soundtrack area would end up fogged. Likewide the soundtrack is only pronted on the edge of the film, the rest of the sound negative is clear and must be masked off or it would overwrite the pictures.

Until Super 16 came allong, double perf was everywhere or so I am told :)
