I don't think anyone can really answer this poll in absolutes without seeing the results of the new 24P miniDV. I can't tell you the number of people that told me "I don't see how your WorkPrinter can provide a professional quality transfer"....until they saw a sample transfer. Likewise, I've run in...

eep, the mass is proportional to the area of the film on the reel, which is proportional to the square of the radius, while the torque is propotional to the radius. do the math and you'll see that a larger reel is in fact harder to turn. A larger reel, indeed, has more mass but at the size we're ta...

Re: Comparing Apples to Oranges?

I was just wondering..what is so special about the mini dv 24p...... i wonder what will make it such a strong competition for super 8......or are there different qualities you see in that 24 p camera which make it competitive for super 8 ?? Well, I am probably not as experienced like all of you out...

You are right, for constant pulling off the film from the roll, the biggest tension may occure towards the end. But this also depends on how the friction is designed! With a primitive constant friction, the faster turning reel causes more resistance, and the force to the film will rise. Hi, Pedro! ...

Hmmm. All the footage I've seen from XL1 cameras in the "movie mode" just looked like regular NTSC deinterlaced. The resolution seemed pretty soft. I assumed that's all they were doing. At any rate, if they aren't just deinterlacing, that's what it LOOKS like to my eyes. The new miniDV 24P footage I...

Message for Sam Azar!

Hi, Sam (assuming you see this)

I got your last email about the WorkPrinter but then I had a system failure and lost a ton of emails, yours being one of them. Contact me again and we'll go over your options regarding either the CineMate or the WorkPrinter.

Tough pill to swallow? most of us swallowed that pill a long time ago when we saw countless footage of ours and/ or other people's home movie footage. That was our education in the difference between quality and simple trigger pulling. Hi, Marc! Well, obviously, you and other caring people like you...

I don't know. I have tons of books on film history and it seems to me the lineage is pretty pure. The cinema was created first and foremost to entertain, to be commercial. Whether you accept Edison or the Lumiere brothers as the true "inventors" of modern motion pictures as we know it, they both are...

Nice shots from Aaron's Film

Hi, all!

I just posted some frames from Aaron's (supa8sixteen) film in the Producer's Gallery on the MovieStuff website. Take a look at:

http://www.moviestuff.tv/gallery.html

He's the first to post photos to the new site and I should be adding more soon.

pulling the 400 or 600 ft roll, will stress claw mechanism and perforation more. Hi, Pedro! No offense, but this is something that is simply wrong and it is something that you have repeated several times in different forums. It's a simple matter of mechanics: The LARGER a reel of film is, the EASIE...
