I am getting ready to shoot my first feature on film, and I have decided (after watching black swan and moonrise kingdom) that 16mm is the way to go and can hold up in the theater if you treat it with respect. I love film. I am looking for opinions from the masses on which camera to go with. I plan on purchasing it given the market. Here's what I understand so far (with help from kenny suleimanagich, a member here):
advantages over xtera:
-integrated motor control ports
-accessories work seamlessly with camera and are widely used
advantages over 416:
-800' mags are available
-extra parts are more available to purchase
-perhaps slightly better when shooting hand held?
Has anyone compared the video tap feed resolutions? How about how the eyepiece appears when peeking through? and major difference between the 24v powered 416 and the 12v powered xtera? Any other insights would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
