Telecine / filmscan Ultra16 and Super16
For professional postprocessing 2K or 4K-scans are standard (pixelsize of hardware is from 5mµ to 7mµ)
type A scanning systems -pixel calculation depends from camera and the systems which can differ
type B sample laserscanning system: pixelcounts taken from internetoffer or calculated:
Digitally filmrecording allows possible blowups not only to 1.85 widescreen also to 35mm 2.35:1 Cinemascope /Techniscope. You have the chance to think about low budget 35mm cineproductions like “Once upon the time in the West” from Sergio Leone.
Anamorhotic lenses have some weakness against a sharp spherical lens which are used for 16mm cameras. The better spherical lens can compensate a lot of lower resolution of the frame... Todays intermediate films have very good resolution capability. It is a good choice for some new projects - maybe also for HDTV with cinelike letterbox?
type A) picture- scanning with optical zoom alignment and digital masking to the required format:
type B) max size film- scanning with digital masking to the required format:
grey= frame of scanned area
