Super-16mm Compared to Standard-16mm When Cropped to 1.85:1

This may be going over old ground for many but it was useful for me so I thought I'd share it here.

According to my working out, when cropped to 1.85:1 aspect ratio, shooting on Standard-16mm is the equivalent of using 67% of a similarly cropped Super-16mm frame. The projected image will have 33% less negative contributing to the image.

Kodak sent me 2 TIFF scans: Standard-16mm and Super-16mm (both scanned Opengate, not Overscanned), which I cropped to 1.85:1 and then worked backwards.
