I did similar work with 16mm and digital camera footage...aways looking for a downstroke guitar strum or a drum stick hitting a snare head to try and sync, but even then it was guess work.Tscan wrote:I had to use 2 cameras a lot, to cut back and forth in order to keep things in sync.
If the film, processing and scan comes in at $50, I would use Kodak. $10 4k scan? I'd take that. If its closer to $75 then you'd be saving 40% scanning yourself so its a no brainer.Tscan wrote:Will there be an option for film and processing only? But for less than the $40 it costs now? Based on the rumors, i'm better off just buying the stock by itself and sending it to the same lab i've been using.
My feeling is that Kodak will still offer stock without processing and scan just so the few remaining labs can get some business, but who knows? Its a brave new world of Super 8!
I'd keep my eye on the Kodak press releases so you can go buy up some non-prepaid Super 8 before the new release just in case. Although I wouldn't buy too much 500T as that tends not to last over time. Either way, I feel like shooting some film this weekend!
