Resolution on the small screen
Posted 05 May 2005 - 09:07 PM
Now, I am a huge fan of the 2.35 aspect ratio and would love to frame for it on this short. However, a colleague of mine mentioned that it could cause a resolution loss. His reasoning: A 2.35 close up is basically a cropped 1.66 medium shot, meaning the face is actually smaller in the frame. And since the smaller objects get in the frame the less sharp they become, a 2.35 close up will not be as crisp as a 1.66 or 1.85 close up - on tv, not projected film.
How drastic will the difference be? And is it any better when the DV is projected (eg at a festival)?
Thank you very much for your advice.

However, if you ever ENLARGE this image for any reason, or transfer it to film, THEN you'll see a resolution loss because of the fact that the actual 2.35 image is made up of fewer lines of video.

Ever heard of aesthetic reasons?
Why would you shoot a 2.35:1 aspect ratio if it's destined for TV?
