Re: Editor/viewer lamp

Of course, you couldn't always try plugging in your editor/viewer,
and then switching it on.

That might help.

Re: Editor/viewer lamp

Have you tried The Widescreen Centre? http://www.widescreen-centre.co.uk or http://www.widescreen-centre.co.uk/film-department Don't be put off by their name, they sell many accessories for film use. More seriously though. Have you tried looking at your Super 8 film in a darkened room? You'll find t...

Re: Standard 8 and Super 8 Splicing

If you require any further help or advice about 8mm, or Super 8, or even 16mm, please write and let me know.

Re: Standard 8 and Super 8 Splicing

Sorry about my mistake.

I wrote it before I woke up this morning.

What I meant to say was:

And if you're not happy with cement, I'd recommend a Fuji tape splicer which uses perforated tape to fit Super 8.
But I don't think they make a tape splicer for Standard 8mm.

Re: Standard 8 and Super 8 Splicing

You can find film cement in many places on the internet. One site selling Kodak film cement is on ebay. If you click on this link below, you'll find a 15ml bottle for about £6.75 plus postage of £3.30 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/15ml-Bottle-of-Kodak-Professional-Grade-Film-Splicing-Cement-for-8mm-9-5m...

FVM MAGAZINE - DECEMBER 2014

For example, it took me just 2 hours yesterday to secure the services of a professional commercial photographer, plus possibly the use of a large commercial photo studio, and half a dozen young men and women prepared to don the IAC merchandise and have their photograph taken. I might add that they h...

Re: Adobe Premier Elements (Books on)

There's another book which I own which I think might be very useful to you. Although it's for Adobe Premiere Elements 7, I feel sure you'll find it a great read. It's The Muvipix.com Guide to Adobe Premiere Elements 7 by Steve Grisetti I have a paperback version and it's now, because of its age, ver...

Re: Adobe Premier Elements (Books on)

I've been using Adobe Premiere Elements 7 for quite some time now, and I am extremely happy with it. The software is very easy to use and does everything I want it to do. I am reluctant to upgrade just in case my old projects disappear fom my hard drives, if you know what I mean. But version 7 suits...

Re: From tape to memory card

Sorry Michael, But I have to disagree with you and say that the cameras you have listed do look like slightly smaller versions of professional cameras. The Sony Z5 - EX1 - and the PXW Z150 may look like small amateur cameras to you, but to most people in the street who don't make films, and some of ...

Re: EXTERNAL BLU-RAY BURNERS

The question still remains. When I send my film to The BIAFF at the end of the year, which format should I use if I want the judges to see a high-definition image? Do they really want a USB stick tied to a luggage label? Tim, you may well say that it's the content that matters, not the medium. And a...

Re: EXTERNAL BLU-RAY BURNERS

Dear Michael, You paint a very sad picture for me regarding Blu-ray discs. You say that few people want Blu-rays rather than DVDs, but surely the number of people entering Blu-rays in The BIAFF must be increasing slightly? I really don't want to use USB sticks for sending to other people. How do I l...
