Hey-

I have a K-3. It has only one claw for advancing film. Does this mean I have to use Super 16? I haven't noticed any stabilizer claw-dealy.

Thanks again! You guys are the super-ninjas of Indie film-making! :ph34r:

You can use single- or double-perf film if the gate hasn't been widened to S16.

You can use either single or double perf film. Remember though, if you use single perf stock you won't get a widescreen image (unless you've had that modification done, of course).

Not only Indie films ! (don't mean I've got anything against Indie films, just mean people here don't only work on indie films...) :)

You can use either single or double perf film. Remember though, if you use single perf stock you won't get a widescreen image (unless you've had that modification done, of course).


What d'you say ?!

You only would get a "widescreen image" (if that ever means anything, widescreen going from 1.66 to 2.37...) if your camera was Super 16... You'd then have to use single perf (1 ridge) stock as to get a 1.66 "widescreen image".

Even though you'd have this modification to Super16 done, doesn't mean using 2-R stock would give you a 1.66 "widescreen image"... it wouldn't... You'd have to use 1-R stock

Is it the way you said it or am I just "playing on words" (due to my uncureless non native english language ?) ;)

Exactly, you gotta use single-perf because the extra image for 1.66 goes where the second set of perfs would be.

unles you have spools of 2R film, you probably won't encounter 2R film much in 16mm. If you do have 2r film and a super16mm k3, you might want to sell the film!

No doubt about that... It's the way Mr Keth was putting it that needed somehow to be clarified...
