The Bell & Howell 70 DL 16mm Movie Camera...

I just got one of these, and I'm exited about using it! Do any of you have experience with this camera, or filming on 16mm for that matter? looking for any info.

16mm film is a bitch to deal with because no one uses it anymore. First of all, you have to make sure you have access to a lab that can develop it.

what he said.

Plus the fact that for a fraction of the total cost of use you could get much better results from a Blackmagic, one of the panasonic GH cameras or, probably, even from a Sony RX100 in most situations.

So keep it on a shelf where it can look nice.

then can't you just shoot 35mm? It's still going to be ungodly expensive but at least you're getting more out of it.

Are you sure they do 16mm? Because a few nearby labs all accepting 16mm cine film sounds too good to be true.

shooting in 35mm is far too expensive for a novice use.. only used by big budget movie studios, and is meant to be projected in a big time movie screen in a theater. Wile 16mm is what television studios and documentary's of the day where normally filmed with, and where intended to be projected in an auditorium sized room. Many film students use 16mm, it can be a little pricey yet affordable.. Nowhere near the absorbent cost of 35mm

Price includes processing. They also do 2k, hd, and sd scans. I use them for 8mm.

Just make those lenses fit your DSLR/Mirrorless and be done with it. No reason to bust your balls for 16mm film.
