Hi All,

 

I had the original Eclair ACL Vision3 50D 7203 negative scanned at 4K on the LaserGraphics Director at Metropolis Post (MetroPost).  Jack and his team do a fantastic job.  Here's what you can do even as an experienced amateur with Vision3 50D, a Super16 converted ACL and a LaserGraphics Director 4K Scan.  Be sure to watch 4K if you can:

 

 

 

 

 

Note that there is no artificial sharpening or denoise/degrain.  This is pretty much what the work print of this negative looks like with some minor differences in grading.  The processing and one-light print from Fotokem was amazing!

If there is one thing Fotokem is good at, it's striking prints. They do amazing one light prints.

Your footage looks great - may I ask what lens you are using on the Éclair?

Believe it or not just a cheap old 25mm Switar non RX lens... remarkably good lens for a cheap, old, not exactly high-end lens.
