Working at Barnes & Nobel in the 1990's.
When I was in high school I worked at the Barnes & Nobel Cafe. It was one of the most meaningful / fun / fulfilling jobs I had growing up. I almost only remember how awesome it was. 

The people working there were a real cross roads of people. Hippie Wo-wo's types to straight lanced tuck in shirt types. I was young and in high school so everyone there was older than me. But everyone treated me with respect. Everyone was cool, even the managers were cool. The main GM was the only one that was a bit of a tight wad but then again how else would you keep everything running great.

Working retail kinda sucks so it made it even that more special. The customer were also great. It was fun while it lasted.

Vibrant streaks of light that look like they're swirling and swooping around. The lines appear three dimensional, some curve left to right, while others forward to backward.

Bulk loading movie film for still photography

Posted by Humby | Views: 762

Bulk Loading Vision3 movie Film
Items Needed
  • Kodak Vision3 film
  • DIY Homemade spooler. (Wood with long screws, nuts & washers)
  • Bulk loader
  • Empty film cassettes
  • Scotch Tape (Super-Hold version)
  • Scissor
  • Film leader cutter (Rezivot Monorail)
  • Sharpie (To write down frame count)
Remove Remjet / Develop / Scan your own film
Vision 3 film has a carbon backing called remjet. Remjet needs to be removed before developing. That being the case I found it  best to self develop my film to keep things inexpensive. 

A quick prebath of 1 quart of hot water mixed with 1 spoon full of baking soda + 4 spoons of washing soda does the trick.

Movie film is normally developed with ECN2 but C41 works great and it's good enough for me. I use the Cinestill C41 kit and get great results with it.

I scan my film using my Nikon D850 with the Nikon ES-2 Negative Digitizer. Using the film strip holder it comes with is annoying so I modified the ES-2 and attach a VALOI 35mm Holder to it for quick scanning. 
Does the Math ($$$) pan out? ( 2023 Prices )
YES! I got 400 feet of Vision3 & can spool it down to 36 exposure rolls and get about 72 rolls. $350 / 72 = $4.86! Very cheap!

As a plus I have the freedom to load up less frames per roll. Say I want to only shoot 12 exposures. No problem just bulk load 12 shots, or 24 or even 6. 

I use the Cinestill C41 developing kit, it's $30, I've easily developed 30 rolls with one kit. Less than $1 a roll.

Minus the onetime  equipment cost to develop and scan my film its costing me for film plus developing only $5.82 per roll!
Photo Samples speak for themselves
I've found Kodak Vision3 250D to be my favorite. It gives me the fine grain and color pop of Ektar 100 with versatility of Portra 400. Reminder these photos are bulk rolled, shot, home developed and scanned my me.
Totally worth it!
Shot with 300mm lens, no motion blue and great colors.
Kodak Vision3 250D has good skintones.
Great lowlight performance.
Golden hour works too!
