....so its looking like I'm going to go with Cinelab in London (daily flights between Gibraltar-London) as soon as I figure out how to get the reels over without fogging them! so now I have options in terms or pricing for 2K scanning...
In order of price:
Goldeneye 2K - £10/min
Spirit 2K - £15/min
*HDR Scanity - Arriscan 2K - £25/min
*They say this is their newest machine
Spirit 4K - £45/min
HDR Scanity 4K - Arriscan 4K - £75/min
Is there anywhere I can see results of these scanners (Vimeo links?) with 16mm film OR can anyone talk about them and give me their opinion on what to go for.....
I'm hoping to hear 'the difference between the Spirit at 2K and Scanty is huge' OR 'there is a negligible difference go for Spirit as cheapest' and such like comments
My first choice would have been to send it all to our friends at Cinelab Boston but the unprocessed 500T film would go through too many X-ray machines at airports
