I recently shot a bunch of footage with a new Super16 Bolex I purchased. I've gotten some of the film back that I shot and my shots are consistently uneven and I have some edge fogging.

When in a telecine session can I zoom into the image and recrop it? When doing this can I also rotate it to level the image out?

I obviously need to get the camera looked overhauled as I did get it off Ebay. The conversion was done out in Las Vegas. The edge fogging might also have been from handling the daylight spools in broad daylight.

But other than that the stuff I shot looks pretty damn sharp. Especially with the new 50D stock from Kodak. I could barely see grain in many of my shots. I wish I had shot more tests with the camera.

Yes, most telecines allow you to resize and rotate the image. Don't know about Spirits.

Whenever talking to a post house about setting up a telecine session BE VERY SPECIFIC about what you want to do and what tools you need, because you don't want to expect some feature (like Power Windows) only to find that it's not available in that particular suite.

David,

Rotate is an option on the Spirit. Its not very common to find one without, but they do exist!

Cheers,

Stephen
