Sorry about the backlog on blogs…coming up are which AF101/ GH2 lenses to buy blog, a review of the year (whoops!), results of Bloom Challenge 4 and many more…
For all my career I have tried to emulate film with video with various degrees of success but I have never shot film. Well this year I will be experimenting. Not with 35mm but with 16mm and a lot more Super 8mm. The biggest problem is the expensive. 16mm film, processing, telecine costs a lot of money. Even Super 8mm is a fair bit, about £30-40 here with processing and telecine for around 3 minutes or so depending on frame rate. So not cheap.
It’s not that I have any inclination to shoot film professionally. I just want to mess around and it’s a great excuse to start collecting Vintage cameras.
What I am also going to be doing, after Eric Kessler set me a challenge is to see if I can use the 16mm and Super 8mm camera with the Smartlapse/ Oracle/ Revolution hear and Slider combo for timelapse. My 16mm camera and one of my Super 8mm cameras do timelapse so it will be a bit of fun!!
Some of the Vintage cameras I have are just for display as they are works of art…
Above is the 16mm Krasnogorsk-3 that I have with the intervelometer and below is video showing how it works.
For that lo-fi look you can always screw with your images in post or use a camera like the iphone with 8mm Vintage Camera, or a Digital harinezumi. Check out Nino Leitner’s blog post for the review of the iphone app.
Great little toy camera that shoots digital “Super 8mm” looking footage.
Filmed in Chicago and LA
Genuine telecined Super 8 footage vs. fake Super 8 digital video (recorded with a Panasonic GH13, Nikon D90 and the iPod/iPhone app Vintage 8mm Camera)
I took the new 8mm Vintage Camera iPhone App to my son’s hockey practice to test it out. I love it. Check out my video review to see and hear more about it.
I first heard about the app from Nino Leitner’s blog. It’s a great post and a great blog. Check out Nino’s blogpost here: http://ninofilm.net/blog/2011/01/08/8mm-app/
