    Cine E6 versus normal?

    "Traditional dip-and-dunk E6 machines will absolutely not work for long-roll E6 motion picture films."

    That's from Kodak's webpage

    http://www.kodak.com/US/en/motion/pr...ditation.shtml

    Does this matter for still use?

    When I go by the shop next week I think I'll pick up some short ends mainly to cross process. [assuming it's in stock] But I'm curious how big of an issue using Kodak 100D for still would be.

    I don't think this matters for still use. I think the reason you can't use a dip and dunk machine for cine E-6 film is a mechanical one--it's not designed to handle long rolls. A machine that develops cine film has to be able to output dry film at the end that can be spooled onto a roll. If you cut a 36 exp. roll for still use from a long roll of E100D, I believe you can process it like any E-6 still film.

    My impression is that the reperfed Super-8 and 16mm Velvia 50D that you can get from some independent suppliers, for instance, is the same Velvia 50 that was sold as still film (yes, it's discontinued, but a few companies have bought the remaining 35mm stock and are selling it as cine film).

    Sounds good. Thanks. Hopefully they'll have some in stock. Maybe some of the Plus X to.

    Unless you can get a price break by buying short ends of the 5285 Ektachrome 100D, I don't think it is very practical to purchase it from Kodak for respooling. Current prices on a 400 ft core load is $475.73. If you can get 18 x 36 exposure rolls from 100 feet of bulk loaded film, that equals 72 x 36 exposure rolls at $6.60 a roll; NOT a great savings I would think. The 1000 ft. roll clocks in at $1,189.33 and offers no change in price despite the higher volume. HOWEVER, if you could find some recanns from one of those film brokerage places online, you might be able to bring the price down to a good point, but its not exactly a heavily used stock, so I bet that would be rare... Man what a buzz-kill... Can't take me anywhere...

    No it's not from Kodak. I'm going to be downtown anyways so I figure I'll stop by Stock Options. Worse case it'll be a short detour.

    Plus-X cine stock might be a lower contrast film than Plus-X still film. I don't think they are the same.

    I vaguely remember somebody saying it was like an older film? Or was that one of the other cine b&w films?

    You're probably thinking of Double-X, which some people think is like Super-XX, but it is completely different. The only thing they have in common is that they are around ISO 200. It's still a kind of interesting film--sort of low contrast, very grainy.
