Hi,

After being fairly disappointed with my 2K scan from several reels of various film stock shot on a Canon XL-S 1014, I am thinking about buying a telecine kit. I know that it is fairly lo-fi stuff, but at just shy of £140 it isn't exactly breaking the bank. Has anyone had any experience with the following bits of kit:

It won't come close to a scan in quality- it is little better than pointing a video camera at a screen. Perhaps there is something wring with your scan.

I agree with Mark. There must be something up with your scan, and you're not going to get very good results with one of these setups.

 

What was wrong with your initial scan? Can you post some frame grabs? What kind of scanner was used?

This setup wouldn't work with negative film, just the TriX
