I have seen what this film looks like in TeleCine and I love it!

What does this film look like when printed to positive?

I am not sure which exact stock / process the lab will be using, but I am willing to spend a bit of money to get this done properly.

---

I have an up coming project that I would shoot in either Ektachrome 64 or Vision 200. I prefer the less noisy colour negative, since I am not too bothered about the "film look". BUT I would still like the option of projecting it. If the on-light print from Vision 200 are on par with shooting straight reversal, I don't mind spending extra cash to get it done this way.

Any thoughts?

I can't claim to be a world authority on Super 8 (you'll need to consult M'Lord on the filmshooting forum for that ;) ) but as far as I know nobody's making Super 8 positive prints off of negative; it's purely for video transfers, where the relatively low contrast of negative film works well with the telecine CCD arrays. The preferred transfer method to projection print of any size would be via digital internegative.

One of the labs in Germany do positive transfers from Super 8 negative . Kahl or Andec, I forget. There is a little blurb about it in the premier issue of Small Format. (which is at my house, not with me). Juergen, or someone else should be able to answer. If not, I will post another reply when I get home.

Thanks for the feedback!

Well, I guess the only real way to find out is to have it done...

I'll post some samples and comments when done!
