In Topic: Buy / Canon Scoopic / ARRI SR / Aaton XTR-PROD / Bolex Sbm

14 June 2018 - 01:31 AM

Ebay has a few Arri's, I suppose you know that each camera you've mentioned is different. The Scoopics and Bolex cameras are great cameras, but very loud and not ideal for filming dialogue, in addition the Scoopics can't be modified to Super 16. The Arri's and Aaton's are quiet running, larger film capacity and professional lens systems, most are Super 16. They are ideal for filming narratives, but they can be more expensive especially these days as prices of 16mm cameras are going up.

In Topic: Film Cinematography Process beginning to end

All great advice here. It can be expensive, but don't let that put you off, the costs of film seem to preoccupy a lot of discussions around using film. Using film doesn't have to be expensive [like it's been already said here] it all depends on how much you shoot, what you shoot, is it drama, observational etc, is it colour or black and white and are you prepared to process and scan yourself. The main costs are film, processing and scanning, the equipment isn't that expensive, but lenses can be. You could get a basic 16mm camera, the best thing is to get any 16mm camera and shoot [as has been said], get the feel for film, you'd know if it's for you. If you're a student ask your college/university to run a film workshop.

In Topic: Can You Make a Kodak 16mm magazine accept single perf?

I don't know if you've said, but what camera are you working with? As far as I know most cameras, like the Bell and Howell, Revere and Keystones require C mount lenses. As long as you can remove the lens from the camera body getting another C mount lens isn't difficult at all.

I am glad it's worked out, I was going to suggest trying another magazine, I now keep a few magazines loaded with single perf film.

Something is making the film not move. Can you make a little video showing how you loaded the film?
