Overall, the quality of the conversion was good. It was a one-light conversion, so there are inevitably areas of overexposure and underexposure. Some scenes, however, appear exceptionally flat and lifeless in comparison to others.
I would like to know if any of these scenes could be improved with altered exposure settings whilst filming, or whether I should take this up with my telecine provider.
Vision2 500 - The black is very noisy. I gather the grain is from the emulsion, rather than telecine? This was slightly underexposed using reflected light reading from the dog's coat.
Vision2 200 - A good transfer. Colours are accurate and the contrast is good.
Vision2 200 - What is this bright spot in the centre of the image? Is it light leaking in from the viewfinder?
Vision2 200 - Did I overexpose? Or did the telecine machine? It appears too bright, even though colours are accurate. I used average relfected light for the very bright scene. Had to use an ND filter.
Vision2 200 - This image appears lifeless. I exposed using the reflected light from the foreground.
Vision2 200 - Again appears very flat. This time perhaps underexposed in the camera or in TC. I used reflected light from foreground.
