After getting this request for some time and finally seeing why I get this request so often...here it is.

By the morning, all 8/70 and 15/70 threads will be moved into this forum for archival and future discussion.

Either it's a great and welcome idea that's been necessary and known about for quite some time ... or it's a slick and clever way of segregating me and my predominantly Large-Format posts from the Film-Tech society, along with the rest of the Large Format cultists. [Razz]

DOWN WITH 35mm!!! Y'all with yer skinny film and optical soundtracks and yer ... vertical threading! ... who needs ya!?! [Big Grin]

Okay, perhaps I overreacted there. No hard feelings. [beer]

Not only is the image quality better, but 70mm requires fewer slitting knives than 35mm. You get 19 strips across a 54-inch "wide roll" of Kodak VISION Color Print Film, instead of the 38 strips you get with 35mm film.

Sadly, by today's declining standards 35mm true anamorphic is virtually a large format.

BTW, I have some 105mm film. That tops your nancy-boy 70/15.

One more stupid thought: IMAX projected using the technology of that defunct drive-in with the individual screens could feed a multiplex using one projector and one print. How's that for economy?

OK, I'm done now.

At the other extreme, Pathe Duplex was a very short-lived home widescreen system which ran 9.5mm, film with special perforations, horizontally through the camera, exposing half the width, it was then turned round, like 8mm, to expose the other half. When slit for projection the film was 4.75mm wide.

The BKSTS film formats wallchart shows an even smaller format, I don't have a copy handy at the moment, but it was either 3 or 3.5mm. I've never heard of it anywhere else, and I've no idea what it was used for, but I seem to remember that it was something to do with the USAF.

[Cool]

Knifies, knifies? John P. must be subterraneously mixing up the film industry with the bill-collecting industry.

But William that's plate photography.
We are talking about flexible film on a roll.

However I am sure the incredibly talented Mr Hill could devise a projector that could transport these plates at 24fps or greater [Eek!]
