Polaroid 600 SE Film Camera

May 6th, 2011

I’ve always wanted a Polaroid camera but just haven’t stepped up to owning one. Someday along with owning a normal Polaroid camera, I’d like to purchase the Polaroid 600 SE camera. It not only looks interesting and produces great photos, but it also uses interchangeable Mamiya lenses. Those three lenses are the 70mm, 127mm, 150mm.

Convert 8MM Film with the Canon 5D Mark II

March 16th, 2011

Super 8 and 8mm have always been my favorites when shooting video. Although transferring the film to digital has posed problems mainly because of its expense and decline in locations to transfer. The video above by James Miller shows his method for transferring 8mm footage to digital using the beloved 5D Mark II and an Eumig Mark 501 (or the Eumig 610D & the Eumig Mark DL). The end result looks great, is much much faster and way less expensive. Now I just need to get a 1D Mark IV or 5D Mark II.

Hit the jump for more information on the process and the transfer results.
