Hi guys,

HERE is the short video, I've put together from one bigger project I was shooting a while ago.
Sory, it's just 720p quality. I hope I can soon upload 1080p.

Footage was telecined at Spirit Datacine from S16 and N16 (same Vision3 250D stock), to HDCAM SR 4:4:4 tape and then saved as ProRes 4444.

There wasn't any additional grading applied, only the one at Spirit.
I zoomed image in Final Cut 7, just using "scale" function. (I don't know if is the best option)

I was shooting with Zeiss 10-100 mk.II zoom (N16 lens) on S16 camera, mostly at f4 - f5.6
And the second one lens used is Angenieux 9,5-57mm HEC T1.8 about f5.6 (I can't remeber exactly).

I hope it helps you, folks :rolleyes: Since there's always question regarding image quality, to go either super16 or crop normal16 footage.

Hello Matej.

Thank you for sharing your results with us. I think the cropped 16mm footage looks really good and is holding up with the Super 16mm quite well.
Oh, and I think wouldn't touch the grain :)

Let us know if the 1080p version is up!

Best Regards,
Raz.
