2018 What a year!  The Year of Reversal (films and processes!)

I don’t think that I personally, nor we as a team have ever shot so many films for making slides with...and not just colour E6 process films at that. Yes we all knew that a new version of Kodak Ektachrome was coming since some PR sprog at Kodak HQ in Rochester got over-excited and [...]

Colour Motion Picture Films ~ The Next Important Stage!

It’s been two years or so since we set out to discover what could be done with films such as the highly acclaimed Vision3 series by Kodak and similar stocks from Fuji.

Kodak Motion Picture Films – Our Vision!

Researching these you’ll find the word REMJET thrown up as if it were a horror story - a total blockade in terms of moving forwards.   It’s as frustrating now looking back as it was then! Kodak describe Vision films as the best they’ve ever made so it didn’t seem fair that the movie industry [...]

You get what you pay for!

We refuse to give up on 127 film!

Please note that we originally wrote this article some time ago, before the arrival of Rerapan 100 and some other film stocks. We think 127 is a lovely format and here is why: Having nearly doubled the image area of 35mm it was much favoured by slide film users. The positive taken on 127 were [...]
