Hi,

I have looked at a few, but the Tobin TVT-8PHD Progressive Scan HD Telecine looks high quality and almost affordable. Is there something better for similar prices. I'm sure the Flashscan HD has a better dmax range, but it is out of my price range. Does anyone have any experience with the Tobin, or any HD Super 8 telecines? I've also seen mention of the moviestuff models. Any advice would be great. I have CS5 and a good PC. One runs XP pro and the other win 7 64 bit.

Thanks

I'd go with the Moviestuff machine. But if this is for your own stuff and not for a business, I would try to build my own with higher capabilities for a lower price. www.moviestuff.tv has a bunch of refurbed equipment as well. They took some SD units and retro fitted them with HD cameras. Might fit your budget.

It's hard to find information on, but this looks very promising...the Müller HM-73. It uses AVI-Synth scripts to clean up scans in post, but the results are stunning.
