16mm film - converting 35mm lenses to use with 16mm

Some Super 16 conversions are not up to par and somewhat confusing to the filmmakers as to lens and viewfinder coverage of S16 frame. Short focal length lenses made for the 16mm film cameras and having F stop ratio number 1: 2. or higher (1: 2.8 ) are not likely to cover S16 frame. If the lens mount of converted camera is not centered with the optical axes of S16 frame the problem gets worse. See below the illustration of the lens coverage of Super 16 and 16 mm frame. The lens orientation is not the only problem concerning the good operation of the converted S16 camera but it is the most important. How to Superimpose with a Bolex Movie Camera.

BEEF Members – BEEFBRISTOL – Bristol Experimental and Expanded Film. Home - aemi. Artist-run film labs implement an original way of using production tools, through their collective organizations, for filmmakers and artists currently working with celluloid film.

They act as an experimental ground for cinema (beyond any genre) at a time when the industry is gradually getting rid of film and, with that, the means to process and print. This website gives an overview of the organizations that have emerged in Europe, America and Asia. It serves as a portal for sharing information about labs and is also a place for debating aesthetic, political and technical questions raised by this on-going endeavor.

On the site one can find historical overviews of artist-run film labs, texts about their practices, descriptions of recent works, a large technical section documentation of past artist-labs’ meetings, as well as a subscription page to our three mailing-lists, forum, potlatch and the agenda. This website was started following the 2005 lab meeting in Brussels.

Lenses A lens is an optical device with perfect or approximate axial symmetry which transmits and refracts light, concentrating or diverging the beam.


A simple lens is a lens consisting of a single optical element. A compound lens is an array of simple lenses (elements) with a common axis; the use of multiple elements allows more optical aberrations to be corrected than is possible with a single element. Manufactured lenses are typically made of glass or transparent plastic. There is no major difference in principle between a lens used for a camera, a telescope, a microscope, or other apparatus, but the detailed design and construction are different. A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties. The two main optical parameters of a photographic lens are the maximum aperture and the focal length.

The angle of view is the area of the image captured by the image sensor, expressed as an angle. Shooting on 16mm Film. Splicing Film. (Editor....

So what is color temperature? In short, each light source has its own individual color, or 'color temperature', which varies from red to blue. Candles, sunsets and tungsten bulbs give off light that's close to red (hence the 'warm' look they give to pictures), whereas clear blue skies give off a 'cool' blue light. It's fairly obvious stuff once you read it. Color temperature is typically recorded in kelvin, the unit of absolute temperature.
