There are some screen shots from my film In My Image here
http://www.mango-a-g...e/stillphot.htm

the main page is here:
http://www.mango-a-g...image/image.htm

- don't go to the very main page
http://www.mango-a-gogo.com
for another a few hours after the time I posted this - someone has hacked that page and put a virus on it - my web host admin is removing it and lookng into it now - the pages I've linked to there though are safe

Scotness,
with all the time I've spent over at the filmshooting.com forum, I've never seen these stills before! They look incredible! I had no idea you shot In My Image on K40....I always had the idea (who knows why) that you had shot it on Vision2 stock.....wait, now I'm confused. Wasn't it you that started to shoot something on 16mm or Super16mm then had camera problems and switched over to HD?
In any event, those stills look great, I'm glad I finally got to see them because I'm just getting started with a project that will all be shot on my remaining K40 as well.
Scotness, do you remember how many cartridges of K40 you used? And what's the final running time of In My Image? Let us know when the home page is fixed, thanks!

David Silverstein, how familiar are you with shooting film? If you're just getting started shooting film, I'd say you should absolutely get a Super8. It really lets you familiarize yourself with the qualities and characteristics of film as opposed to video. I've found that getting good results on film is far more satisfying than video. If you're already familiar with film, I'd say to just go with 16mm unless you're going for a certain vintage Super8 feel (or can afford a good 35mm camera). Just my opinion.

Hi guys - first of all the site is fixed and virus free - the short film Hold Me Tight is the one where we switched from 16mm to HDV - we just had our last shoot on that on the weekend - I'll post some pics soon - on In My Image we used about 230 rolls :wacko: but we were learning :lol: the running time of the film is 1 hour and 32 mins

I agree too - good results on film are alot more staisfying than video

You can find some stills from my super 8 feature Sleep Always at www.friendlyfirefilms.ca

Go to the bottom of the home page and click on "frame grabs".

Here are a few screen grabs that I have posted elsewhere. All images are from my super 8 test reels. Film was processed at Forde Labs in Seattle and transfered at Flying Spot in Seattle. (although the plus X is a CinePost rank)

Perhaps of interest is one more screen shot that I have online:

Note that the R-10 shots are much sharper than the Super zoom 8

Wow, those look great. I have heard great things about flying spot. They are pricey but the results are stellar. The lens also does make a difference. It is too bad that so many super 8 cameras have such junky lenses glued to them.
Side note: I have always thought that Vision2 200t was the best looking vision stock on S8, the the tri & plus X looked good as well.

..Thanks. Yes I agree that 200T is the all purpose Super 8 stock. In really controlled situations K40 and 64T also look great - finer grain etc., but in shooting situations when lighting cannot be controlled 200T and 500T have the latitude to give consistantly useable results (albeit grainy)

I know I'm late with responding to this post, but WOW man, The look and feel of the footage is awesome!! That inspires me even more to work with Super 8. I just bought a 814AZ and I'm looking into getting a Nikon R8 too.
Wow again.
