D5 MII scan head
Posted 07 December 2008 - 06:30 PM
Hypothetically speaking, if I put a Canon D5 MII in my scan rig and ran the film head at synced, 30 fps, and captured the images in the D5's 1920X video, could I simply realign the footage in Premiere or AE to run at 24 fps? The idea being, get around the 30/24 difference by simply running the film at 30 fps and slowing it to 24 fps in post. That would allow me to use one camera for both mid-res workprint and high-res, frame scans.
Crazy or possible?

It's the only DSLR that has a CMOS tall enough to get a 4K wide image from a 1.2:1, anamorphic, 35mm image. My Kodak DSLR was okay for my techniscope frames since they are much wider than tall. But I can't use it to capture anamorphic frames and keep the width at 4K. For all the merit the D90 has (24fps half HD video) it isn't tall enough to get the whole anamorphic frame at 4K. The 5D MkII costs a lot more than the D90. But, they rate it at half again more cycles on the shutter. So it does likely have better longevity over the D90. And, If I can mange film head speed, the 30p, full HD can be busted down to 24fps in AE and represent the film without 23.976, pull-down hassles.
It's all academic since I can't buy anything, now. I just wanted to get some answers ironed out. Thanks, again.

I was surprised to see that you can actually get a scanner affordably that is designed for mo-pic. use.
