  • Yes, it's low fade, AG2S.
    I was curious cause I'm noticing a lot AGFA films have this very faint purple tint to them.

    • Last night I watched Witness (1985) with Harrison Ford. This has been a favorite movie of mine and I love now having it on 16mm. The sound track is English with foreign subs. Color and contrast is very good.

        • Last night I watched an educational film I just bought: The Ecology of Barrier Islands.

          Now, I'll grant you this is not exactly Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, but maybe even on a personal level, this worked for me. I live on the Atlantic coast and a lot of the locations look a lot like places I've grown up with. The scenery was wonderful and the film itself was beautifully filmed.

          -and just maybe I...learned a couple of things!

          • Student Prince - managed to buy it on a local auction recently and is one of my favourite films! Picture is a bit soft and the last reel has bad scratch down the middle, but beggars can't be choosers, so I will live with that and simply enjoy it!

            Some pics from the screening:

            The video projector is permanently mounted, but the 8mm and 16mm projectors come out when needed:

              • Had a mate around from work who wanted to see my IB tech print of Bullitt, although i already viewed this one recently, i was more than happy for a repeat viewing, a classic film on great stock and in very good condition.

                          • Tonight: New Zealand: the Land and its People

                            This is kind of an 8mm Forum inspired print! I'm not saying I wouldn't have bought it without Graham Ritchie telling us here about his homeland, but it was certainly an incentive!

                            • Lincoln Thorn Love that film, great it's in scope. 👍

                              • Tonight:

                                Confessions of a Train Spotter: Michael Palin's epic journey from London to Scotland with side trips through the world (-and the minds) of railway fans. He takes side trips to a heritage line, the Railway Museum at York, and he rides on an excursion behind the Flying Scotsman.

                                Confession of a Film Collector:
                                This wonderful print came from E-bay but is only part one. While I certainly hope Mr. Palin was successful in his journey, until Part 2 pops up (-someday...maybe), I can't be 100% sure he ever got to Scotland!

                                That's why film collecting these days is a little like fishing: you know what you want, but sometimes you just reel in whatever is swimming past and decide to want that!
