If you don't need high quality, how much does Costco charge for their
"home movies" conversions?
'Course, if you want the best, you'd have to pay the prices for Monaco
Labs and Leo Diner Films.
If you want to make your own digital Telecine hardware, . . .
In college, instead of the usual aiming a camera at the screen
(kinescope), I put extension tubes behind the lens on a C-mount video
camera (an added extension equal to the focal length of the lens will move
the focus from infinity to twice the focal length at 1:1) and shoved it
into the projector, in place of the projection lens. In those days, the
difference in frame-rate was the biggest problem (16(silent),18(super
8),24(sound) V 30/60,35/50); bizarre frame-skipping, frame doubling
algorithms were developed that don't need to be necessary for MP4.
You would probably want to go into the projector to add a switch to give
continuity on a wire timed to the film-gate, to single shot the camera
for digitizing, . . .
This guy was working on doing it with flat-bed scanner??
