Redlcnds Daily Facts Friday, May 7, 1965 - 13 PLUSH RESTAURANT — This view from the nearby freeway on-ramp shows the old English style of architecture used for the new Steak Eater's Inn. NEW STEAK EATER'S INN — Redlands area residents will dine in a sumptuous old English atmosphere in the new Steak Eater's Inn, situated five miles east of Redlands on the Redlands Freeway at Live Oak Canyon rood. The completely new restaurant, one mile east of the present Steak Eater's features this main dining room plus banquet facilities and a luxurious executive dining room. It also has a cocktail lounge and piano bar, seen through the opening at the right. Steaks, the specialty of the house, will be cooked in open view in the ultra-modern kitchen at the left. (Facts photo) Japanese also to offer new 8 mm wider film By BART KINCH United Press International Recently the Eastman Kodak Company announced it would introduce its new Super 8 movie system at the International Photographic Exposition (IP-EX) in New York May 1. But before the ink was dry on the press release, a Japanese company, Fuji Photo Film Co., informed the press that on the same date and at the same show it would introduce its new "Single 8 System." Competition is keen. It may even be possible that by t h e time the show opens — in a few days — the two systems may ba obsolete! The Kodak Super 8 System was discussed in this column recently. Both systems apparently will require new cameras and projectors to make use of Ihe new, improved films. Both firms w'ill be offering new equipment along with new film. Since the Kodak Super 8 System already has been reviewed, we'll concentrate on the Fuji Single 8. To date it has been necessary for anyone using the conventional 25ft 8mm rolls of film, to shoto 25 feet, then open the camera, switch the roll to side number two, and then shoot the remaining 25 feei. Not so with the Fuji system. Here you get a new type of long load magazine that gives you 50 feet of continuous film. This is possible because Fuji developed a new thin base for both color and black and white films which makes it possible to squeeze 50' feet of film into an area that formerly held only 25. Furthermore, it is narrower and therefore permits drastic slimming of cameras. Fuji claims it has been working on its new movie system since 1959 and it appears to have been worth the time and effort, the new film uses a polyester base two-thirds the thickness of conventional fUms, yet it has twice the tensile strength. The sprocket holes were made smaller and moved closer to the edge of the film. This enabled Fuji to increase the film area by 50 per cent. "For the consumer who wishes to add sound to his shows," Fuji officials said, "The Single-8 film provides a wider space for sound stripping. This improves sound fidelity considerably." The new film is supplied in a plastic cartridge that appears foolproof to load. You simply drop the magazine containing the film into the open camera, close and lock the camera back and that's it. It cannot be inserted wrong side out. It just won't fit that way. Also, by inserting the magazine into the camera, you automatically, or rather the magazine automatically, sets the correct film speed. This is similar to the Instamatic system for still cameras that the Eastman Kodak company developed. The magazine also enables the film to be run in reverse for professional effects like overlaps and lap dissolves. Now, to accommodate this film-magazine combination, Fuji also designed two cameras— the Fujica Single 8 P-1 and the Fujica Single 8 Z-1, The Z-1 is of the zoom lens variety. Both cameras take advantage of the Single 8 film format. Both have electrically powered firm transport systems that operate on four dry cell batteries. One set of batteries is good for 10 to 12 rolls of film. Best Wishes Steak Eater's Inn Interiors 6y Bruce L. Danielson, AID. I4N.
