For someone new to the small format scene, this kind of resource can be extremely helpful. Are there any outgoing experienced people on the board willing to help write up a list? 

 

Companies

-negative

-reversal

-B&W

etc. 

 

I see countless threads about stock tests old and new, but it involves a lot of sifting and some of it is out of date.

 

Look forward to hearing from you.

 

Regards

Zachariel J Shanahan

The Fomapan is cut and slit by FOMA itself. Sold as DS-8 to the public.

Who can use it or slit it themselves to fit Kaccema or others.

 

Wittner buys 300meter long rolls and slits and cuts these into Kodak cartridges for Witner label.

 

Wittner doesn't perf S8 themselves. Accordign to their website they are still thinking about getting a die and mask for their machine. So someone else is doing the perforating.

BTW, does anyone know what the new Wittner PXR 50 is? I know PXR 100 was Plus-X, but don't know which one could this be...

WITTNER PXR 100 is Kodak Plus-X (7265)

WITTNER PXR 50 is most likely Kodak Plus-X (7276)

Yeah, they're actually buying bulk rolls and "carting" them themselves.

While Kodak is at it I'd like 250D too. Although Vision 3 50D is probably about the most perfect film for Super 8 possible if you are scanning.

In the next couple of days I'll be posting some Vision3 50D Super 8 clips that came off the Spectra Spirit that I then touched up on the color correction and ran through Neat Video for grain reduction.  Most other Super 8 stocks, especially 500T, just look smudged and fuzzy after grain reduction.  Vision3 50D has such fine grain that Neat is able to smooth it out to look like 16mm or better!  Amazing stuff.  Stay tuned.

So that 200D is probably looking more like the OLD Ektachrome before 100D right? Less saturation, more grain...more like 70's & 80's Super 8 (other than Kodachrome).

 

Anyone have samples?

Yes, from the grain the 200D is more like the Ektachrome 160s. However -as it's an Agfa-product- its colours/saturation/contrast don't look like any Kodak-product, but like a grainy Agfa Moviechrome 40:

Lets hope this Agfa product is more stable than all previous products I've used from them, all my moviechrome 40 and 160 is un-watchable due to emulsion fungus, my ct18 slides have turned red, pretty sure last time i looked the 100asa slides were turning too!. No offence, but can agfa stock be trusted for longevity?

Hi,

 

are you sure that it's really fungus? There have been several reports about "strange dirt" (white dots or even brown mud) on Moviechromes that wasn't fungus and that could have been simply washed away with film cleaners applied several times (sometimes even washing with distilled water helped):

If anyone was wanting to buy the new AGFA 200D Super 8 reveral film stock in the USA right now, I can recomend this company.  http://thereelimage.jimdo.com/our-web-showroom/

 

The AFGA film is very reasonably priced, IMHO.

 

This company also sells the Fujifilm 100D Velvia.

 

I have ordered and received both film stocks.  You place your order online or over the phone and a couple of day later you get you film with the invoice. 

 

fuji-100-agfa-200-super-8-film-cartridge

 

They also sell  Fujica S8 splicers and  Fujica S8 splicing tape 100-splice rolls.

Basically double the development time for each extra stop.

Just a note on the new AGFA 200D  Super 8 reversal film stock.   The cartridge is notched for 250 asa film.  This means that the film will be 1/3 of a stop under exposed,    So I  suppose you could   slightly extend the developement time, thought I don't think it would make much difference. 

 

I shoot with a Nikon R10 and the camera controls on the R10 allow you to adjust the exposure to compensate for the 1/3 stop under exposure. If you read the R10 manual, it says that even though the exposure compensation dial is marked in half stop encrements --"The control  can be set at any intermediate setting for more precise adjustment."
