Best HD video camera for Telecine

Post by extrawide » Thu Jun 22, 2017 4:01 pm

I have some Standard 8 films that I would like to transfer to HD Video
I have a variable speed projector as well as a Sony VCR-4 Telecine machine and was looking for recommendations as to a suitable video camera with a lens, manual focus as well as White balance to allow me to shoot the screen on the Telecine Sony VCR-4 succesfully...ideally with HDMI to allow me to view them on my monitor
I have a canon 5D Mk11 with a 50mm and 24-105 lens which is rather bulky
Also the Canon HF200 but I cannot seem to get it right....
Any advice gratefully received by this newbie

If ya camera has synchro scan / clear scan adjustment of the shutter you can get rid of the flicker with that-it works pretty well on the lumix gh4
