I want to say hello and thanks in advance for your time and help! I have been reading a lot on the internet but I is somehow confusing when it comes on a couple of questions
I recently bought two cameras a Bauer A512 and the Leicina. I did not film on Super-8 for nearly twentyfive years and now getting tired of digital. Its is like your ears are getting tired of mp3 and just want a record to relax...
I would like to do a small music clip with a song I did a couple of years ago and it is rather confusing to get some basic information on at least three questions:
A. What would be the best/easiest film be for the beginning (including telecine... negative?)
B. I read different things about Super-8 transfer. What would you recommend - especially with the use of an anamorphic adapter (HD/2K)? Of course I did that "glasscreen-stuff" already but that is just for some holiday/family clips...
C. Though I'm experienced with anamorphics I am not with Super-8. Will I need lenssupport for the heavy Isco 54 with the Optivaron on the Leicina (on the Variogon/Bauer it is no problem). Are there any smaller lenses (primes) you can recommend for the Leicina. Unfortunately I don't own the Cinegon and it seems to be very expensive. Maybe that would work nice with the smaller Iscorama (from '68 with 30mm rear)
I am also looking for a lens for the Bolex Möller 8/19/1,5 which was made for 8mm but has a very small rear thread of 24mm.
Very sorry for this long first post! Again thank you very much if you read through this and of course for any help!
