    Does the B&W film have the REM backing, too?

    Bw cine negative film has no REM backing.

    Isn't that the old Seattle Film Works model?

    I've not had any problems getting 36 (really more like 40!) exposures in standard reloadable cassettes.

    I agree though, that'd be nice.
    I'm still willing to send a few free ones out, though what I'd really prefer is to have the time to shoot some myself :-) I've shot a roll of 500T in daylight with an 85B filter and a roll of 50D while I was doing some B&W cine film tests, but I want to shoot some of the T films with tungsten light as a more appropriate test before sending them all off for processing.

    What I'm really hoping to do, once we've got this process all sorted out, is SELL some of these many many thousands of feet of movie film I've scavenged during this escapade! I mean seriously. I need to gather some more cores and cans to ship in, but then I'd gladly cut off 100-foot-ish hunks of it to send to people to bulk load their own. I've got nearly every speed and color balance of Kodak movie film made in the last few years, and then some.

    Let me ask another question. I know everyone is focused on the 35mm film. But someone was asking about 120 (62mm) long rolls in a thread recently.

    Is the 65mm stuff perforated on the edges? If so, how wide are the perfs? Could you slice that down to "roll your own" 120 or 220? Or are the perfs so wide they'll get in the way?

    I've not played with 65mm film, but I have got a little bit of perfed 70mm (like would go in Hasselblad backs, etc.) and cutting it down to 120 size would leave little nibbles of perfs at the edges. They'd be outside of the imaging area, of course, like they are when using one of those 70mm backs, but they might be annoying. (I actually have a 70mm-to-120 slitter, but haven't used it yet.)

    So I would guess 65mm movie film would have the perfs actually slightly into the imaging area, which would be even more annoying. But you're never going to find short ends of 65mm film, and you'd be *shocked* at the price for it new... and that's if it's even available new in single roll quantities. A lot of it has to be bought by the case. So that's going to hurt!

    Not to discourage you, but that seems to point to DPUG to me, since the information about this service is of no possible use to anyone except hybrid printers.

    Well, the other processing place I'm talking to is pretty keen on bundling in the service of "printing" them to release film, so then you'd have all your contrast and vibrance back where it's supposed to be.... then you could do what you will with the resulting slides.

    Wow! Even more like Seattle Film Works!

    For the record, I never had any problem with their product. I understand that by the end they were giving shoddy service, but that doesn't mean the concept wasn't valid.

    In fact, when I checked the link Chris posted at the beginning that was one thing I was looking for, whether I could send them a roll of exposed film and get back a strip of negatives as well as a strip of positives.

    Who would offer that with such short strips? And how would they expect you to deliver it? In respooled Tri-X canisters? Or just extract it yourself and send them the exposed strip?
