Seriously. I can't remember a time I ever had compatibility issues playing VHS tapes in VCRs, except when I tried to put SVHS tapes into them
No way, really? That's wild! I would like to get my hands on it at some point soon...
Goodness, that book is like my bible! (Well, one of them at least.) I can't tell you how glad I am Mr. Sammon took the time he did to compile such an in-depth account of making that film. Happy reading! :)
That's a great point David, to be sure -- I just don't think 100% of available content having been upscaled makes a great case for pulling the trigger on such a TV, was more what I was getting at.
Thanks for stopping by Colby. Love the material and I appreciate the detail you've gone into regarding your process. Happy to share :)
Ehh depends on your definition of "raw" but not true camera RAW... Uncompressed HD, yes. "With three 9.2 million pixel Frame Transfer CCDs capturing 1920x1080 resolution, the Viper FilmStream camera system delivers an RGB 4:4:4 10-bit log output—uncompromised by electronic camera signal processing—to a field recorder. There is no color subsampling, color-space conversion, irreversible video manipulation, or compression. In short, nothing is done to the image: what the lens sees is what the Viper FilmStream camera delivers. Every pixel is there in full resolution."http://www.cinematography.net/Files/viper_brochure.pdf
