    The social group can be a little more flexible about topics like telecine and digital editing than we generally are in the regular forums.
    Thanks! I just joined the group. I am starting to explor a whole new world !

    I just had 3 cartridges of K40 done at Dwayne's & considered having them transfer it. I did some searching & at the filmshooting forum read a couple of reports that said their transfer quality is not good. So in the end I went for process only. I'd rather pay extra for a professional quality telecine job if any of the footage is good, rather than $9 for something I can't use.

    Don't neglect standard 8 as an option as well. Frame size is a little bit smaller, but some extremely good cameras and lenses were made for the format, such as the Bolex H8 Reflex with three-lens turret. It is actually 16mm stock (though it is perfed differently) that is run through the camera once in each direction, each time exposing only half the film's width. During processing, it is slit down the middle and the two halves are spliced at the ends. This is all my family ever shot, and all I have ever shot as well (for 8mm, anyhow). As I mentioned, I just got the camera in which I am going to try Super 8 for the first time.

    Actually, I just aquired an really neat old Keystone 8mm camera that I can't wait to try! I thought I should support both!

    Where have you had your 8mm processed? Do you have it telecined?

    Yale Labs in Burbank, CA. I have it scanned by them as well, even if I plan on using it directly for projection...just as a backup. I also buy my film from them.

    Very good! It's a very nice looking, "all-purpose", "Plain Jane" film, that is nice and neutral, though it is saturated like a VC versus an NC film. Reminds me of a mixture of EPP and EPN, though due to frame size, nowhere near as "beautiful". Don't forget that you can push and pull it, which is your best tool to manipulate the highlights, and will also affect saturation.

    I like it. I posted a frame grab here--

    You can get Velvia 50D respooled as well from a couple of sources. The grain is excellent and the saturation is nice for projection. Some of the earlier cartridges were a little jittery (I've experienced this), but I gather they've solved that problem. I've ordered it from Spectra.

    Does anyone have any examples of transfers done by Dwayne's that they are willing to share?
