    • The Projector - 8mm Direct to 5Dmk2

      Many thanks to Mitch Aunger (Planet5D) for getting this story rolling and spreading the word. http://home.planet5d.com ---------------------------------------------------------- This is my method for transferring 8mm footage using the Canon 5Dmk2 in real time. The results are very good for such a fast method if you cannot afford the money or time for frame scanning. 00:42 - It very important to use a flat type LED's not the dome shaped ones. The dome shape LED's will give you lots of blooming and the focus will drift at the edges making you suspect the lens. 00:58 - I drilled 3 holes in the body of the projector for the LED flexible light strip, behind where the original bulb used to sit. I mask out light I don't want projected with putty. The position of the lights helps mask out some of the scratches. I need to add another couple of (horizontal) lights either side of the centre light. 01:29 - I modified the original projector lens to try and achieve a flat field image. Made from the rear element from a Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm and attached to the original lens tube with a bit a tape no less. You could use standard lens and there are some very nice ones out there. 03:08 - Utilising the body from the old 35mm lens, it proved a good way in shielding the projector from light pollution, I also added a 12mm extension tube. A lens cloth draped over the front further seals the light from entering, of course you could just film in very low light. 00:12 - I put 2 drive belts on the motor, this slowed the motor down just enough to reduce the shutter flicker. The Canon 5Dmk2 was set to 24p and 1/50 for our electrical phase. ISO ranged from base up to 1000, depending on exposure of original film. The footage is fine at ISO 1000 but this could be reduced by using a more powerful flat lens LED. 03:30 - Focus and frame size changed by moving the projector or camera and adjusting the screw type lens. Try and focus on the film grain and not the scratches. 00:37 - I removed the internal mask for 8mm & S8mm aspects at the gate to project an unrestricted image into the camera. You gain areas that are hidden but they have the perfs though them and you see the top and bottom of the next and previous frame, but you can re-mask in post. If it's personal footage you want to see everything on the frame, some times it makes the difference. You can use the crop sensor DSLR's but the lens would need changing or modifying unless you wanted a cropped image. On this lens and projector I can not bring the camera near enough without fouling on the body of the camera or projector body to get a full image captured. I have tried to make this project as accessible as possible and apart from the camera, all the items are fairly cheap to pick up. Projector used: Eumig Mark 501, I also use the Eumig 610D & the Eumig Mark DL Camera: Canon 5Dmk2 Ref LED: http://www.maplin.co.uk/dc-12-v-flexible-led-light-strip-400mm-47376 Here are links to a couple of films transferred using this exact setup: http://www.vimeo.com/20900718 http://www.vimeo.com/20871186 I have other 8mm transfers back from when I started this 2 years ago, but the quality was not as good. They are further down my videos.

      • It's Better In The Wind - Short Film

        For the last two years I have been taking still photographs for a personal project entitled 'It's Better In The Wind,' all the while collecting video footage from each ride as we traveled around the Western United States together. I have been slowly editing the footage into a visual scrapbook of sorts for those who partook, and those who followed us via the web. No preaching the triumphs and failures of the motorcycle industry, no divisive commentary between manufacturers and styles...just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities. Chuck Ragan was kind enough to collaborate with me to write an original soundtrack for the film, to give me some anthemic tunes to edit with, and I can't thank him enough for the kind gesture towards a fellow traveler. Please, enjoy the film, everybody who took part in it is family, we are all grateful for your support these past two years while we tried to build a concept around the positive nature of motorcycling.

                • S-8mm DIY 1080p Uncompressed Transfer System DEMO

                  View this on Roku!! These are some sample S-8mm home movie film clips that I took at 1969 Formula 1 and SCCA races held in Watkins Glen N.Y.. All the clips were handheld & shot at 18fps. Shown here on Vimeo 720p HD, they approach the ultimate quality produced with the DIY 1080p uncompressed transfer system I developed. Roku requires a soundtrack, so a sweet, "long ago" background track was added. For a split-screen DEMO of "Raw" vs. "Processed" done by this system, see: http://vimeo.com/5044466. The DIY HD transfer system uses the same basic workflow as described in the earlier, July 2008, SD transfer system, for which a free 22 page .pdf "System Description" is still available. See: vimeo.com/1361634 for details on obtaining a copy via Email. Each 25min. of S-8mm footage requires about 20 hours of processing time!! As such, this DIY system is used mostly for transfer and archiving of “home movies” of family and friends. And with all due respect, professional footage usually looses too much of the "film look" (sorry). Most of the steps in the workflow are “automatic” and require no operator attention once initiated. The workflow requires 5-6 resamplings of the data, but the data is kept uncompressed up to export to: DVD, Blu-Ray and 1080p MJPEG archiving. TECHNICAL: Uncompressed 1080p is used for Telecine and ALL post-processing. Telecine projector - modified 2002 vintage MovieStuff Workprinter – wetgate, opal diffuser, high CRI 3500K 50W lamp, software “mirror”. HDMI Camera - Sony 3 CMOS V1 operating in 30p with fixed iris /auto shutter & "Indoor" WB. Image stabilization – VirtualDub/Deshaker. Film grain reduction – VD/Neat Video. Auto color correction – Premier CS4. Brightness correction – CS4 Mid-tone Grays Gamma. Add 2:2:1 Pull down for exact 18fps on 30fps displays – CineCap. Pan Smoothing – second Deshaker selected with manual edit in CS4 (as described in vimeo.com/1792533). Sharpening - Neat Video & VD/MSU (small). DVD’s are downsampled and transcoded directly from the uncompressed 1920 x 1080p Masters using CS4 Encore's great “NTSC Progressive High Quality 7Mb VBR 2 Pass”. For Blu-ray, the masters are encoded in Premier directly to H.264 WITHOUT ANY RESAMPLING - for optimal 1:1 viewing on large screen 1080p HD sets. IMHO, as HD replaces SD, these sets are becoming the world standard for home entertainment viewing. As such, 1080 is a “safe” standard for archiving today’s home motion formats. VIMEO LIMITATIONS: Use HD, Full Screen, Scaling OFF. Again, 720 Roku Vimeo viewed on a 50+" 1080p screen is "almost master quality". The uncompressed 1920x1080p master was downsampled (down-rezed) in CS4's Export H.264 encoder to 1280x720p for Vimeo HD upload and display size limitation. The only quality difference between viewing on-line vs. the downloadable .avi, is the .avi will avoid Vimeo's one-pass Flash re-encoding.

                      At a family get together I was accidentally informed that my uncle Jerzy has two wonders hidden in his loft. First, a technical one. A cult (but slipping into obscurity) classic- a Super 8 camera. The other was a family thing. A collection of films from the early 80s, when he was using said camera to film me and my cousins, then children 1 or 2 years old. These films are one of a kind and haven't been seen by anyone for 30 years. Therefore I decided to visit my uncle and his loft and film the outcome... Here it is. Tools: Canon 60d, Sigma 30mm 1.4, Zoom h1, FCP 7. Music: "Bubba’s Blues" by My Bubba & Mi (http://mybubbaandmi.com/)
