recently purchased an Aaton XTR Prod and got offered two 800ft Mags instead of the regular 400ft Mags.
Considering what I intend to shoot (ethnographic/experimental films), having the possibility of shooting 800ft - given the lab manages to stick two 400ft rolls together - would be ideal.
Yet I've read that if you want to shoot regular 400ft rolls - which will be the case most of the time - one would still need those 3 inch cores. Only problem: where do I get those 3 inch cores, since Kodak only delivered them with their 800ft rolls.
To sum things up: would you go with the 800ft Mags or is it not worth the hassle? Again, most of the time I'd shoot regular 400ft rolls. Though it would be nice to have the possibility to shoot 22min if needed.
Thanks for your thoughts, much appreciated as always!
