An interesting format I came across is the new Super Dimension 70 mm format. This format features 70mm film displayed at 48 frames per secound that supposedly gives the illusion of 3 dimensions without having to wear silly 3D glasses. Also 48 frames per secound handles motion so much better than 24p and can handle faster pans and faster zooms. It is also realized that the immersive experience of watching 48p can be rather over bearing for the entire length of the movie so 48p footage is intercut with 24p footage. Thus the format retains its film look because most of the footage is 24p but when the special effect of hyper realism is needed 48p can be inserted. This format also has the endorsement of members of the American Society of Cinematographers because it is backward compatible with 24p and does not produce the kind of artifacts such as when 60p Showscan footage is converted to 24p.
