telecine Super 16mm to HDCAM
on Feb 9, 2006 at 2:09:48 pm

I will have to transfer Super 16mm film to HDCAM. However because of the fact that the HDCAM is high resolution I am not quite sure if Kodak 250D film could be taken into consideration. The higher sensitivity, the lower resolution in film, however where is the limit when it is still possible to transfer the film to HD format?

best regards

super 8 kodachrome maxes out at around 1440x960 pixels ..

i have found that old 16mm B&W from 1940 does not have same resolution as 1980's B&W .. IMO the 1940's does NOT have the resolution to take full advantage in a 1920x1080 clip (adding to it could be the old lens ?)...

i have had the 1980 B&W scanned 2k res and it does hold ..also i have telecined 4x3 16mm using inverse anamorphic then taking a 16x9 out of it and it holds up excellent ( little better then if you had it telecined 16x9) .
just guessing i would say that the 250D can hold its own in a 1920x1080 frame = you will see a huge improvement over 720x486 ...

if you want a better image you could transfer 10bit 1920x1080 24p, 4:2:2 color space to hard drive ... you could then render out to either HDcam, D5 or DVCproHD or 24p for a film out... the HDCAM is 8bit 1440x1080, 3:1:1 color space 29.97 to tape .

Kodak 250D vision 7205 will do just fine going to HDcam.... the stock anyway. Be very careful about focus, exposure etc.
