It is in German but here are the basics about what is said:
- DI with Spirit 2k
- First comparisons with "normal" zooms, later also with Digiprime (as written)
- Super16 shot with Ultraprime
It's not perfect, I'm sure a high-quality scanner would have done a better job (oversampling from higher resolution, 2pass for full 16bit DR...) and 1080p-cameras can do better recording uncompressed RAW.
They claim that the first comparison a few years before failed because the old Vision1-stock caused too much grain - are these new stocks really THAT much better, is this the point where still photography film has stopped?
But it shows that film has about the same amount of resolution, more grain/noise (about 2 stops difference?) but also much higher dynamic range (even from telecine?).
But after all, they're comparing Super16, not 35mm!!!
Makes me wonder if we head in the right direction...
