Welcome to our new searchable database ‘CINE IS ALIVE AND WELL’ site.
We have extended our listings of stockists to provide more information, especially to our visitors from outside the UK and at the same time we have made the search page more compact.
We hope you like the new format (and colours).
Please note, we do not buy or sell anything. This site is purely for your information as to where you can obtain sales and services.
How often have you been told, "Cine is dead. It's all video now"?
How many times have you gone into a photo shop and been met with blank stares or sadly shaking heads? "Sorry it's all finished now."
NOT TRUE. Not by any means. Certainly video has taken over the popular market. It is so much easier to take and show on the 'tele' the same night.
But if you have used cine and still feel that film has something that video hasn't; that extra quality, that tangible 'hands-on feel', even a sense of showmanship in its big-screen presentation, all is not lost.
Don't throw your projector away -- or your camera. Film is still available, including a new Ektachrome 64 ASA emulsion and a variety of other stocks and it's not that expensive. In 1959 a roll of 8mm Kodachrome cost 25/- (£1.25). At today's prices that would be £20 and although Kodachrome 40 is now finished in super-8, the new Ektachrome 64T and other emulsions are now that sort of price including processing and film stocks have never been so numerous in both colour and black and white.
Equipment too. A lot is still languishing in cupboards, forgotten and neglected, yet capable of picture quality most video systems could never match. Yet there are still dealers, small-ads, fairs where this equipment can still be found.
