    i found it while cleaning out the basement. i asked my g/f's dad if i could have it and he said yes.

    how much is film?
    is it hard to use? what about vs. 8mm?
    how much is developing?
    where can i get film?
    do average colleges offer classes on how to use old shit like this?
    how do i incorporate sound into it all?

    Are you sure it's 16mm and not Super 8?

    If it's 16mm, the film is not exactly cheap, but the real heartache is film processing. Super 8 and 16mm both are (of course) way outdated technology, although there is a sort of film "retro" movement that wants to preserve 16mm technology, because it has a great deal more soul than digital or VHS.

    If I had a 16mm camera, my next stop would be the Multi-Media Center at the nearest university.

    now you put alot of money and sweat into figuring out wether or not you like filming and then decide wether or not you should upgrade to a 35mm camera (you should) and then get so fully fucking wrapped up that you finally splurge for the full on 70mm greatness... then make westerns or something...

    I thought they didn't shoot on 70mm? Isn't that just for when they are showing at a huge theater and the 35mm doesn't "blow-up" correctly and to avoid distortion they use 70mm. I could be wrong...



    Mangage congrats on the find, please believe I will stab you and take it.

    no, 70mm is/was a pretty standard format it is definately much wider than tall, framewise, but it's mainly the cost reduction involved in shooting 35mm... 1st, you suddenly have twice as much film and you can also run it through todays modern 35mm processing units.

    Lots of stuff is produced on 70mm but due to cost and convenience issues, its definately becoming more of a purists medium. Still, the color reproduction and natural panoramic aspect are going to keep it around for a while... of course, this ignores possible advances in digital technology and I don't even know anything about those Imax cameras but that all seems like the future...
