  1. Guys...this is all EXTREMELY helpful! I'm really appreciative of that! Is it okay to use you lot as reference for my university's dissertation? aka thesis? :D
  2. This is exactly true, all of which I am aware, similarly this kinda relates back to optical effects where all originated from 70mm and then printed back down to 35mm for the master. and also (still relevant) I love the fact how some of these old shows that were shot on (Super)16mm are been transferred at much higher resolutions and for it only to be released on Blu-ray, the images are stunning, brings new life to them and really do show the power of film. This whole Oversampling business that I try researching online always refers to the audio meanings and definition. Are there any articles or books based on this topic? The very closest I've gotten to was the Nokia Lumia 1020, it uses (dont know if its true) a 41MP sensor to capture and then it is downsampled to the final desired image.
  3. This is EXACTLY what I am referring to! The thing is with Oversampling I guess is that you are 'generating' more data than what is there theoretically. In our cases of visual or audio, you are 'capturing' more than what is probably there. This 'capturing' term can be though very ambiguous and I'm having a hard time how to put this in better words or to describe...or to really understand this. Like...'Nyquist rate'???
  4. But taking an image from larger to smaller is actually Downsampling. Whilst that shares a process that is done in Oversampling, how does it differ from Upsampling? This is what I am trying to understand, cause Upsampling directly refers to interpolating and extrapolating, Oversampling still deals with data that becomes larger the original. For example, if one was to say 35mm was 4K but decides to scan at 8K for it to be image processed at, no kind of interpolation is been applied here, so how does one describe this? I hope everyone understand what I'm trying to say here! :D
  5. Sorry guys! Made a slight error on the title, it should be : "Question...on the use of 'Oversampling'?" It wouldn't allow me to change it, or delete the post! Hope that doesn't put you lot off! :(
  6. Hi guys, kind of new here, how are you all doing? I've been meaning to ask this and I don't know if this is the right place to do so (or even the right forum), but I was wondering, what is the purposes of 'Oversampling'? I'm talking about in terms of images, which I'm sure definitely relates to film (analogous or digital). I have my theories on why and what I sometimes explain to people, like having more information to work with, reduce the amount of aliasing, reducing any artefacts introduced through any image processing (please correct me if I am wrong on this matter!), but I really would like to know and hear it from you guys. What are the benefits? Any disadvantages? When does it come in? Is it the same as 'Upsampling' since the two seem so similar :D I ask this also because I intend on using this technique for my final major project at university and I indeed would love to know more about it, from the pros especially ;) I really hope you lot don't mind me asking, and I hope and look forward hearing back from you all too! :)
  7. That is exactly what I am intending to do but from 4K, and the film stocks I will be shooting at will be the Vision3 50D and 500T. I have also seen the DSLR set-ups, especially footage done by Justin Cary, all of which look very good, however they are not considered 'professional' and I would much prefer using industry standard scanners (since they scan in RGB) since 35mm is treated this way :D My closest is Kinetta: www.kinetta.com I have been in contact with them and I think they can do it, have you ever heard of them? or anyone here? Is their scanner as good as they claim? A quick question, does anyone know a telecine house that might have a Spirit Datacine with a Super8 gate perhaps??? (I'm aware that I-dallies in London has one, wanting to know for anywhere else).
  8. Hi guys! Sorry if this might have been brought up or mentioned, but I was wondering, has anyone done any Super 8 scanning at 4K? OR knows where it could be done by any chance??? I know that is definitely overkill...but I'm after this because I am doing an investigation for my Final Major Project at university. I hope this can be possible...I am having an incredibly hard time doing this! :(
  9. Hi guys, my name is Omar and I am new here! and I was wondering that some of you much experienced individuals might be able to help me answer this quick and simple question of mine. The Spirit DataCine scanners, from the 2002 model all the way up to the Scanity, do they share the same film gates by any chance? Or do they all differ from one another perhaps???
