shooting on 35mm-3perfI am pulling on a 35mm short on the BL-4. We are using Kodak's beautiful new Vision 3 stock (5219). I wasn't sure if the BL-4 could run 3-perf (67.5 feet per minute), insted of 4-perf (90 feet per minute).
Trying to save some film. Any tips?

Thanks.

i dont think you can interchange gates and motors. It has to be converted.
I have seen many in 2-perf but not three for some reason.

Correct, you rent a three perf camera as such. Converting between 3 and 4 or even 2 is not a field job.
