I've been doing some research on 16mm telecine and found an intersting telecine/lab that seems too be too good to be true called 3516 (16mm by Debenham Media Group). Since I'm on a budget these guys seem to be like the perfect way to go for high quality at a low cost ($0.14 per foot if you process you film at their lab as well). So here are my questions:

(here are some frames they put up on their site)

1. Is it worth it to get the film transfered on a hardrive or should I instead simply get it transfered to mini dv?

2. Does anybody know what kind of system they use to transfer the film?

Thanks

1. Yes its worth it by far (as you can see in the examples).

2. They use a Rank-Cintel telecine (from their website) which is not as good as say a Spirit but its plenty good for the price.

I have talked to 3516 and was actually looking at their site, make sure you read everything carefully and call them there are a couple small charges that are outside of processing and transfer like $125 for a hard drive and a couple of others.
