Hello everyone, just wanted to post that we built a true 2k transfer machine to transfer 16mm and 35mm films, this is a custom built machine and will transfer in real time. The reason we built this was to be able to transfer films for people for a very very affordable price. if anyone has films that they need transferred or just want some more info on this, shoot us a email and will talk. soloblazer@gmail.com Thanks and everyone have a great day.

This could be of great interest... why don't you tell us more about it here in the forum so we can all get the info.

What formats can it handle (other than just saying 16mm and 35mm). S35mm? S16mm? Anamorphic?

4:4:4? 8:8:8? Is it RAW data? Or is there any color correction on the head end (daVinici, or whatever)?

And where are you?

Thanks for your post. Are main clients are private collectors. Also this machine is a custom built machine and is not like the spirit scanner or the Da Vinci, although we were involved in the Da Vinci and CCD technology.

We use a full frame imaging device, not a scanner.

The imaging device is movable to allow for re framing. 2048x1152

The Image sense has the equivalent to 11F stop range.

We can record the RAW image data but perfer to use CineForm RAW record. Then we can render that to just about any format you would like.

We can handle 2 and 3 perf, super and ultra 16.

We have full color correction control from the raw data, plus we have MTI restoration software if need be.

Are system is design to go from head to tails, because are primary function with this is to restore old films (just complete a 1930's film for a client).

We originally designed this machine to restore old films, but also have done many new films.

Thanks for your inputs and if you have any more questions please ask.

That's interesting, most people have never even heard of Ultra 16. The only couple of labs that I know of that can handle it have had to have special gates custom made for it.

2-perf and 3-perf 35mm is a huge bonus too, btw. Those are great formats for indie filmmakers who are brave enough to shoot real celluloid... although the camera choices are limited and a bit harder to come by (although there are some really good Russian 2-perf conversion cameras out there). Will pass your info along to a couple of other non-COW forums I belong to where film shooting is the rule rather than the exception, which is mostly the case here.

Again, where are you located?
