Hello Gang,

I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to shoot 35mm cine frames of a recently issued, high-res LCD monitor? Since they are going up in contrast and resolution and down in price, I wondered if anyone has shot one to see how well it's imagery transfers back to film.

I know Jeff Kreines at Kinetta is building a 35mm film recorder based on a LCD panel I think a proper camera/panel alignment is essential and then you get into colorimetry issues and calibrating the panel to the film stock. For quick stuff I am sure it would work but any LCD is a 8bit device.

Hi,

I used to send slides out to have them done, but now I just shoot them on a reasonably hi-con stills stock off my Dell 24" TFT.

This is of course just white text on black (or black text on white, to shoot on neg and end up with what you want).

It works reasonably well. I'm not sure that the guys who used to do my slides were doing anything much different.

With a bit - a lot - of farting about with exposure and filtration, you could probably do an el cheapo DI like this. Not that it would probably ever be brilliant, or really "right", but you might get it to look "reasonable".

Phil
