Re: Eclair Cameras: Color Reversal Film

I am also using the same lens, and soon the Zeiss 10-100, so I will compare.
Does the image get compressed to put it onto the mini-DV tape, or can they
put it onto a DVD to download directly into my computer, without having to
put it onto mini-DV?

How does the saturation look compared to the negative film? Also, I assume
you are talking four 100 ft rolls, not four 400 ft rolls, right, for that

It costs a total of $193.95 for process, prep, transfer to MiniDV,
postage and handling of 400' color reversal at Bono Film and Video.  It
costs 137.88 for 2 rolls of 7239 and 2 rolls of 7250 including shipping.

So for a total of $331.83 you can have 11 minutes and 7 seconds of 16mm
film put onto a MiniDV tape that you can watch over and over again, and
not have to worry about getting hair on it and what not (as you would if
you watched the original with a projector).

This is the way that I plan to shoot all of my films from now on.
People say that color reversal has more of a 70's-ish look, and since
I'm using an Angenieux 10-150 lens that was used in the seventies, and
my camera was probably made in that decade, I figured lets embrace that
Kodachromey look.  It sort of reminds me of another quote from Elvis

"When you're kicking in the car chrome, when you're drinking down the
Eau de Cologne, when you're spitting out the Kodachrome...you better
watch your step."

No, but seriously the colors are very vivid, but I love the look
personally.  It kind of reminds me of the Return of the Pink Panther, or
even Miami Vice!

Hope that doesn't cause any of you to puke.
