Some of my Super 16, not sure that I’ve quite got the hang of uploading to Vimeo, as the clips tend to loose quite a bit of sharpness.

The transfer is odd, looks like a 25fps telecine. I think that's really why the sharpness is missing.

How old was the film stock ?  What was the quality of your telecine ?

The stock was fresh, I am not sure what the telecine was, I know it was done on a Spirit, I got  Pro res file it looks fine on my machine but not as good when I upload it, I'm going to try Youtube.

Did you export the footage in h 264 or Prores 422 for the upload?

As Tyler said, the transfer is odd.  The frame rate looks strange.  Is it possible that you shot 24fps but the ProRes file is 25fps?  As for the sharpness, I'd attribute it more to the lens used than the stock as there is halation around the light sources.

Jeff, you're perfectly right. the footage was shot using the old kinoptic 9mm lens that came with the sp-16 and it looks as the 24th frame was probably doubled in the telecine as Tyler said. But the image still feels too foggy along with the strong "halation arround the light sources" you pointed out. i saw it was shot using Fuji stocks which means they aren' t perfectly fresh and if it was captured using the vivid 250d it expains it all ;)

If you check out Pav's vimeo page, all of his films have a similar softness to them. My guess is, there's a common thread in there somewhere. 

 

I do agree there are some stock issues as well, but even with bad stock, the grain should be crisp.
