    Can someone explain 70mm film please?

    Hmm lots to respond to...

    I think the confusing thing is this...



    I had trouble pouring the chemical out because the drainage holes were too high so I added wax to lift up the level o reach the holes flat, I wouldn't process color film in this (heat + wax = bad) but B&W is fine.

    The point of 70mm is to shoot and process 15 feet (5 meters?) at a time, of you have to shoot shorter lengths in order to process in smaller reels, it kind of defeats the purpose.

    Also, FYI 116 reels are 70mm tall so you don't have to re-design new 120/220 spirals just buy a 116 reel/tank and use that, but again, you only get like 1 meter to process at a time. That's what I use to test new 70mm for exposure / processing if its expired.

    Anyway my "daylight" 70mm tank isn't FULLY light proof, but as long as it's not high noon, it seems to work fine.

    I wish I could see a picture of a real 70mm daylight tank, I wish some nice person would offer me one lol

    I've got 5 rolls of Double-X on the way. Spoke to Hewes in the UK, and they can supply most everything for 70mm. They even have a loader for their 70mm spirals. Any idea if this "loader" (doesn't look like a bulk loader), could be used to load cassettes?

    The Hewes loader is a spiral loader not a cassette loader. It holds the spiral and has a tongue to put a little curl in the film so that it goes into the metal spiral neatly.

    What did they quote for a spiral+tank ?

    Will let you know when he gets back to me! This sounds exciting, started a thread in the Darkroom forum, seems not many people have tried this stuff;

    http://www.project-double-x.org/about.html
    But it is the look of Double-X that makes it that little bit special and with users exposing it at and beyond its designed exposure index and in various developers, the images it produces are beautifully rich in tones and clarity.

    Motion picture films using the Eastman B&W film stock (5222 & 5231) include: Schindler's List (1993), Memento (2000), Kafka (1991), I'm Not There (2007).

    The opening black and white scene of the James Bond film, Casino Royale (2006) was shot on Double-X. The English Cinematographer, Phil Méheux, BSC, talked about the scene, in 2006, for the magazine of the American Society of Cinematographers. YouTube have the opening sequence online, a fuller version and the extended original intoduction with the cricket match scene! This was cut in the finished film.

    I'd love to run around shooting 70mm on something like this!

    Wait they have a daylight loading tank for their 70mm reels?? Are you sure?

    Wait this helps to load 70mm into the spiral once it's shot? So I don't end up skipping tracks and get film stuck together preventing the chemical from developing properly in some spots? Is that what it's for? I DEFINITELY need one!

    This is from the Hewes website. I think they're just for spirals and the previous poster was mistaken. Anyone know how they work?

    You can see they're for spirals because the cranks have notches to support the wires at the core of a Hewes spiral. And there's a place for the reel to be supported and have the film pulled off it and follow the metal strip (guided by the folded edges) onto the cranked spiral.

    Jobo #3035 = One-reel tank for above reel

    Jobo #2517 = 70mm reel for 2500 tanks (film length??)

    I looked for a year to find that tank, never could, Jobo certainly doesn't make them
