    New entrant in vacated 35mm motion picture camera industry

    Well just when we heard that Panavision and Arri got out of the game, Lomo gets into the 35mm camera arena...

    http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/15/l...ands-on-video/

    Anything to increase 35mm chrome film sales is great in my book.

    Love that it shoots a 40 second film on one roll of of 35mm 36 exp

    Not my cup'a tea but glad to see Engadget (IT writers) talking up a story re film

    Cool, there must be a very small image area to get 40 seconds of footage.

    I have refrained from getting close to any sort of super 8 film camera, because that would add another project to the mix... but 35 mm film in short pieces sounds interesting and doable. But 2 seconds after starting to look at the contraption, I am already off to thinking "what about having a 100 feet roll instead in the camera..." So, maybe not.

    And then you'll want to modify a projector to handle the format!

    From watching the video, I think it is the standard 35mm motion picture frame format, or what still photographers would call 1/2 frame.

    The frame size is 24mm x 8.5mm.

    Is it me, but looking at the picture of the developed frame on the above site that it appears to be 8.5mm x 36mm?? I know their site says its 24 x 8.5 but the distance from the perf side to the other perf side is 36 and the sample frame they show looks like it is wider than 24mm??

    The film is 35mm wide so it can't be 36mm between the perforations.

    The 24mm width is what would normally be the 24mm height of a standard 35mm landscape format frame.
