I think its worth adding to your list the Philips telecine for Standard 
Definition work, as its amazing for that. I think scanning film at high 
resolution and then down converting with the right anti-aliasing 
filtering looks incredible. The Sprit does some of the best SD work I 
have ever seen.

I have been looking at some of the HD film transfers, and I tend to 
think the Sprit would look better with a 4 K scan at HD down converted 
to 2K HD though.

I have heard there is an option for this coming, is this true? Can it be 
fitted to a current Sprit?

Sorry if this has been covered on the TIG already, as I only just got 
back onto the list!
