Huge demand for cinematic film

We talked not so long ago about the number of emails I receive each month regarding subjects of interest to readers all over the world and how I have bowed in response and added as many of those items as possible.

The latest in line is the subject of cinematography, stuff like cine movies, both the Super 8/Standard 8 type we used to use way back in the 70s, to the professional level film as used in the production of mainstream films. This last area has now been taken over by the digital demon, namely Betacam SP and it’s derivatives….correct me if I’m wrong.

But 35mm cine film is still being used, so I will try and research this before presenting any articles here.

Needless to say, it seems there are people the world over who want to know about these subjects, judging by the large amount of emails I keep getting.

I had actually thought about starting another completely separate blog for this, but I am, like everybody else, shackled by that old enemy, Father Time, so to make it easier, I will add another page to this very blog, where we can go to discuss cinematography. In a sense, we are partly covering that field anyway, with our look at film noir category page, but I suppose adding a specific page just for cine will be better in the long run.

Hope you all will like this new addition, and will let me know of developments and/or anecdotes for inclusion here.

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
