    Can someone explain 70mm film please?

    Id like to look at a 70mm back, I know I need Type II perf and that its all but vanished.

    1) can you still make special bulk orders from kodak for film? How does one contact them?
    2) how much film is needed per back? I.e. there is a 60ft rool of expired tri-x on ebay. What kind of bulk loader would I need?

    Thanks,

    Daniel.

THE AMOUNT OF FILM NEEDED AT FRONT AND END WHEN LOADING CAMERA IS LONG , so you need to use a lot of film per load . finally - 70mm FILM REQUIRES special ss reels and tanks for processing. BEST ADVICE- DO NOT GO DOWN THIS PATH- IT IS NOT CHEAPER, AND FILM CHOICE IS VERY LIMITED. Cheers Barrie B.

    Aside of Kodak Agfa offers part of their film assortment in 70mm off the shelf. You best inquire for such at their Aerial Dep. at their Headquarters in Flanders.

    I understand that the Hasselblad backs need type II perf. For anybody that used the A70, what was your favorite?

    I can't help but agree with Barrie. I have posted a lengthy 70mm workflow blog entry here: http://mrmarcmorel.wordpress.com/201...-mapping-film/, but it took me aaaaages to accumulate all those bits and bobs...

    The bulk loader seems to be the hard part. On photo net some said the just took a 35mm plastic spool, cut in in half an used a dowel to achieve the correct spacing.

    If you can roll 35mm film by hand you should be able to do the same with 70mm film.


    Hewes offers 70mm bulk loaders.

    I've done something similar to this before. It can work, you just have to be careful that the ends of the 35mm spool are aligned well so that it doesn't wobble.

    Amazingly, I found a local source that has some KODAK PLUS-X AERECON II Film at a good price, on freeze. This is official Kodak Australia stuff, so I don't have to worry about x-rays etc that I've have with imports.

    500ft reels are going to be fun though. Any idea's how to spool off this?

    Daniel.
