Re: 500T in Adelaide city street at night

"I wish they would come out with 400T Ektachrome" I suppose too much grain is never enough! It would be a generation ahead of V3 500T, which looks pretty good with a clean scan. Reversal also is, or appears finer grain than color negative. So I would expect that a new 400T reversal could be pretty ...

Re: 500T in Adelaide city street at night

Pretty decent for the 1014E. Good camera but not ideal in low light. I'm guessing you're a fan of the XL cameras? A number of years ago, I filmed some performers in an outdoor stadium at night under artificial lighting with the Canon 1014E and Kodachrome 40. And the results turned out surprisingly ...

Re: Greetings!

Welcome to the forum! Prices have gone up a bit for film in the last couple years but resources like scanning has been getting better and cheaper. Reversal film is coming back this year too. Good time to starts shooting again!

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

I've got a 1 min demo ready, just waiting for the score from a musician. It does not compare old vs new, it's just an example of S8mm and S16mm. Hope to have it online by next week.

Re: Kodak prices

If the $25 price is still listed at their online store, that's what you pay. I ordered up 20 rolls at the old price and they shipped.

Re: Kodak prices

Ouch, and the site has gone pretty silent on S8. It's not mentioned in the consumer section any more, no hype about the camera.

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

I'm reviewing a scan I just did, from a 200ft reel of home movies ive scanned before with the 1080 camera and old light source. It came out good before, but with the 2K cam and new LED it's just amazing. One big improvement I'm seeing is far less grain. A lot of it has to do with hardly any digital ...

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

Got my 2K upgrade finally up and running this week. So many improvements, so many options. A wide variety of resolutions, aspect ratios, compression levels, and file formats to name a few. With the new light source, no need to max out the gain for negative film, which leaves you the whole spectrum t...

Re: Retro 8 retro scan playback isssue

Last I heard, Resolve had given up QT support after 12.5. I rolled my version of Resolve back to 12.0 and QT files show up. The OS could be a factor, I'm still running Windows 7 on that machine.

Re: Retro 8 retro scan playback isssue

Have you done any upgrades? QuickTime support is fading fast. QT files don't even show up in versions of Davinci past 12.0. Are you on Windows 7?

Re: Even a reporter for the NYTimes doesn’t know the difference between film and Video

The Youtube link is a horrid VHS transfer of the film. I doubt the Feds have the resources to pull as much info out of that film as any post house with a Scan Station. "The film has become too brittle to run through a projector" I doubt that, but would not trust an old Bell & Howell with a $16 milli...

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

I've asked myself the same question, and I'm moving to the 2K setup. The goal is to digitally reproduce what's on the film, good or bad, without the inherent flaws of digital getting into the mix. Things like digital noise or grain, pixelation, and more limited dynamic range. 2K may be overkill for ...
