Hello,

 

I'm considering shooting Orwo's 16mm UN 54 stock for a short film. I'll be using a Normal 16 Bolex and I was wondering if anyone had any examples of scanning this stock at 2K and then doing a 1.78 extraction. If you've got some examples could you please share them with me?

 

Thanks,

 

Aaron

I just got 800 feet of single perf 16mm UN54. I am going to shoot it in S16, but when I get it scanned I will crop and do a 1.78 extraction for you if you already haven't got one. Probably two weeks out.

I suspect though, if you use sharp glass and the registration is good on your camera, that the image quality will be great, barely different from S16.

Compared to color negative stock, the B&W Orwo stock has considerably more grain. If you like that look, fine, if you don't I suggest color negative 50D and desaturate in post.  Doing a 1.78 letterbox from standard 16 is not going to help the grain issue.
