I have shot 3 features on the older gen VariCam, but none of those projects were blown-up save for a short that was blown-up using a cheap 2K process. I was less than pleased with those results, but am optimistic about the true image scan for this blow-up. We are leaning towards the Panasonic family of HD cameras, specifically the HPX-500 and am curious if anyone had any experience using this or other cameras and the transfer to film. Will the resolution be enough when translated to celluloid? Does this camera carry rez necessary to make this possible? Or will we see the blocky and muddy images I have previously seen with transfers?
Is there another camera that I should investigate that would be better suited for this workflow?
Thanks in advance for any help.
