Critique of 2016 interview

Recommended Posts

I was reading a 2016 article on https://nofilmschool.com/2016/09/should-you-shoot-16mm

when I came across this statement. Am I crazy or is this 100% wrong?


“When asked about what type of film stock they prefer....  the practical producer Lucas Joaquin prefers 16mm,  it’s more difficult to scan 35mm and you don’t necessarily have more picture information on a 35mm frame than a 16mm frame."

35mm is generally easier to scan because you have higher quality original so it may need a little less tweaking in scanning. Less grain and better stability to begin with. 

16mm would be more cost effective if the raw stock and developing are normally priced. All the scanning places here are charging per minute of material so the price per minute for scanning is the same for 16 and 35
