RE: Eclair Cameras: 7218?
Thanks for the suggestion. When shooting 35mm and using 400ft loads I
worked out a system whereby the longer takes were either good or all
thrown away, thereby saving on neg dev costs. I had eight 400ft mags
then, I have 4 200fters now, will rent another 2-4 for the shoot, and
will probably use them all.
But then again, I grew up shooting 3:1 and timing everything out before
and during rehearsals, and, silly me, I still shoot video tape that
I've found that shooting a dramatic project (ie-dialog) on short ends
problematic --- you load 125 feet and make a shot or two, and then it's
to change mags with 50 feet still left. One can spend twice as much time
changing mags (which adds up in general down-time), and then throw away
film than the savings. For what it's worth. Mark.
