Re: Eclair Cameras: OT: Film Stock/Canon Scoopic M, MS

Thanks for the good ideas on Scoopic. Good luck with the film. Try Vic, he
has some good prices too.

About the best price I've found on raw stock is Fuji
Color Negative
which you can get for around 27 cents a foot at:


After hearing Wade's argument for negative, I am
considering trying out
some of Kodak's Vision line on the A-Minima 200'
loads.  I want to shoot
7245 and the one that has a 320 Tungsten rating.
Since they agreed to
change their description of the ACL I am no longer
boycotting them!

The Canon Scoopic MS actually changed the light
reading while film was
running through it. This made it awesome for
handheld work, like for
instance, I remember one shot I did of my sister
walking under
flourescent lights in a strip mall, and then into a
Chinese restaurant,
and the meter would change the light reading--and it
looked great.  It
has a dial on it that lets you set speeds from 20 to
640ASA, and it
compensates at any speed from 16, 24, 36, 48 and 64
fps.  Sure, you'll
want to lock your exposure in  place for static
shots.  But for shots
taken from inside of the passenger's seat of a car
this is wonderful.
Too bad it can't be modified for Super 16:(
