Hello all! I'm prepping for a short and we are planning on shooting Orwo N74 35mm black and white negative. We got a Panavision package and will be shooting tests next week. I've read a lot about some of the negative pitch problems Orwo has had in the past (causing jams) and it seemed to differ from camera system to camera system. Some of those reports were based on the 16mm stock, so I'm writing to see if anyone has any first hand knowledge of shooting Orwo N74 on a Panavision camera?
We are doing a test next week but because we're getting a great deal on everything we won't have access to the camera as soon as we would like and our test will happen close to our shoot date. If there is a problem with the stock we need to be prepared to change tracks radically. I'd love to hear your experiences with Orwo N74 especially with Panavision and modern Arri cameras.
