Hi All,

Anyone out there w/ experience flashing the negative with an a-minima? Is there a particular technique you recommend? I was going to use the grey card technique but was concerned w/ how one anchors the film in the take up reel. I reckon using the film label sticker wouldn't be such a good idea if planning to reuse that reel.

Thanks,
Cullen

Well, you could use an Arri VariCon in a 6x6 mattebox, but that seems rather awkward to put on an A-Minima...

Yeah... you're pretty much going to have to pre- or post-flash.

You could poke a hole in the gasket and induce a light leak.... just kidding.

What are the other pre and post flash options?

And Nathan, any chance I can still swing by and go over the camera w/ you?
