A Spool There Was Scaricare Film !!BETTER!!
Eventually 620 lost the battle of the medium format war to 120 and in 1995 Kodak discontinued it, 30 years after making their last 620 cameras. Yet, then and even now, there are many thousands of working 620 cameras, but no film. FPP to the rescue!
A Spool There Was Scaricare Film
*The 620 Film Spool - Our 620 Film is hand-rolled onto a new FPP mold-injected plastic, re-usable 620 film spool. Our FPP 620 Spool is mold injected and is just a fraction thicker than vintage metal spools due to the fabrication requirements. Our spool will be snug in 1% of 620 cameras. It will loosen with repeated use (if you re-use your spool or can be easily sanded down with a piece of sandpaper.) This product is sold without warranty. All sales are final. Due to the age of vintage cameras your results are not guaranteed.
Light leaks - Vintage camera the age of 620 cameras are prone to light leaks. Best to tape up the seams around the film compartment with light tight tape. Light leaks can also occur if your camera does not wind the film tightly onto your take-up spool. This is known as a "Fat Roll". Also, when handling your film - always store your exposed film in its black bag or snap case.
Proven design in use by photographers, this takeup spool winds up 35mm film onto a 120 format spool. There are two internal hooks that catch the tail of the film for winding. This spool is perfectly matched to the 35mm film adapter, which is at pinshape.com/items/3160-3d-printed-35mm-film-to-120-spool-adapter.
The Super 8 plastic cartridge is probably the fastest loading film system ever developed, as it can be loaded into the Super 8 camera in less than two seconds without the need to directly thread or touch the film. In addition, coded notches cut into the Super 8 film cartridge exterior allow the camera to recognize the film speed automatically. Not all cameras can read all the notches correctly, however, and there is some debate about which notches actually deliver the best results. Canon keeps an exhaustive list of their Super 8 cameras with detailed specifications on what film speeds can be used with their cameras. Usually, testing one cartridge of film can help handle any uncertainty a filmmaker may have about how well their Super 8 camera reads different film stocks. Color stocks were originally available only in tungsten (3400 K) Type A, and almost all Super 8 cameras come with a switchable daylight filter built in, allowing for both indoor and outdoor shooting.
In 2005 Kodak announced the discontinuation of their most popular stock Kodachrome due to the decline of facilities equipped with K-14 process. Kodachrome was "replaced" by a new ISO 64 Ektachrome, which uses the simpler E-6 process. The last roll of Kodachrome was processed on January 18, 2011, (although announced last date of processing was December 30, 2010) in Parsons, Kansas, by the sole remaining lab capable of processing it. In December 2012, Kodak discontinued color reversal stock in all formats, including 35 mm and Super 8. However, in Spring of 2019, Kodak introduced Ektachrome 100D in super 8 and 16 mm formats, citing surges in demand.Today there is still a variety of Super 8 film stocks. Kodak sells one Super 8 color reversal stock, Ektachrome 100D, and three Super 8 color negative stocks cut from their Vision 3 film series, ISO 50, ISO 200 and ISO 500, which can be used in very low light. Kodak reformulated the emulsions for the B&W reversal stocks and made Tri-X (ISO 200). Film cut to Super 8 from other manufactured raw stock such as Fuji, Orwo, Adox, Agfa and Foma are also available. Pro8mm offers 7 color negative stocks made from Kodak and Fuji film. Color Reversal film for Super 8 is still available from several Super 8 specialty companies. Wittner Kinotechnik offers Super 8 made from a batch of Agfa Aviphot 200D, which is perforated and slit for Super 8, 8 mm and 16 mm formats. This film is loaded into Super 8 and Single cartridges by several of the specialty companies. Other stocks, such as the new Fuji reversal film, and existing supplies of Kodak 35 mm 100D are often made available in Super 8 by these specialty companies.
The advantages of this system are the possibility of higher frame rates and rewinding film for double exposures or crossfades, which were very difficult or impossible with the super 8 film cartridges but possible with cameras using film spools. Since the film doesn't follow a diagonal path through the stacked spools of the super 8 cassette, the pin-registration of DS8 is considered to be superior to that of Super 8 film, and so picture stability is better.
Starting in 1971 in-flight movies (previously 16 mm) were shown in Super 8 format until video distribution became the norm, until they were replaced by Video8 and later on, digital video. The films were printed with an optical sound track (amateur films use magnetic sound), and spooled into proprietary cassettes that often held an entire two-hour movie.
Around 1889 Edison picked a team of muckers to work on this project, headed by William Kennedy Laurie Dickson. They built the Strip Kinetograph, which was a very early movie camera. The "strip" was a piece of long, flexible film that had been invented for regular camera. Unlike older photographic film, it could be wrapped around a wheel or a spool. The Strip Kinetograph took pictures so fast that they would seem to move.
To film these movies, the muckers needed a stage. Edison's light bulbs were not bright enough to make these films. They built a stage out of wood planks and tar paper, with a roof that opened up to the sun. This strange building looked a little like a police wagon or a hearse (which took coffins to the graveyard). A police wagon was sometimes called a "black Maria" (pronounced Ma-RI-uh). This "Black Maria" was built in 1893. Short films were made there for ten years until it was torn down around 1903. By then Edison had a newer, better movie studio in New York City.
We will publish the contest once we tweak the last few things. And we also want to wait a bit more until there are more Prusament spools in the world. However, you can start working on your ideas right now. Here is a vector PDF with the spool hexagonal pattern, so you can easily incorporate it into your design. You can order Prusament here.
THE PROBLEM: Twin check stickers are applied to your negatives in the dark before film processing in order to help us track it through the lab; ordinarily, there is not an image frame on this portion of the film. If there is, this is another sign that there is a camera advancement malfunction or film-loading error.
A turbofan engine is the most modern variation of the basicgas turbineengine. As with other gasturbines, there is acore engine,whosepartsand operation are discussed on aseparate page. In the turbofan engine, the core engine is surroundedby a fan in the front and an additional turbine at the rear. The fanand fan turbine are composed of many blades, like the corecompressorand coreturbine,and are connected to an additional shaft. All ofthis additional turbomachinery is colored green on theschematic.As with the core compressorand turbine, some of the fan blades turn with the shaft and someblades remain stationary. The fan shaft passes through the core shaftfor mechanical reasons. This type of arrangement is called a twospool engine (one "spool" for the fan, one "spool" for the core.)Some advanced engines have additional spools for even higherefficiency.
I just bought this unit about a week ago. My first impressions is the build quality is pretty good and it's straight forward in operation. The large screen is a big improvement over the other scanners of it's type, although I've never seen any of the other ones in person. I've had some trouble with film frames sticking or jumping occasionally while transferring. I've managed to resolve this by not necessarily following the designated film path on the take up reel side. It's seem to vary with the film I'm scanning. You definitely need to keep an eye on the unit when in operation as it will hiccup every now and then, especially if there are splices in the film. The scan quality is not what you would get with a professional scan, not that you should expect that. I find transfers a bit on the grainy side and the color seems over saturated. I adjusted the sharpness and tint down a notch which seems to help. Overall, I think it does a pretty decent job of scanning film for the price and good way to view your old 8mm/Super 8mm movies.
