Re: [Tig] Sony Corporation Atsugi Technology Center
Yes, a stock suppliers has said the same just a moment ago to me.

Is film poised to make a huge comeback for acquisition?

If that proves to be the case, can Kodak (and Fuji) provide enough raw 
stock to keep up with demand?

Is film stock production being ramped up as Pilot season begins and 
shooting for the new season looms?

Will there be enough transfer systems, colorists and engineers to jump 
in and handle what's shot?

Will there be enough D5 equipment to go around?

Someone asked on another list today about sourcing HDCAM and HDCAM SR 
heads. Tony Korte from head rebuilder Video Magnetics advises Sony was 
the sole source.  With D5HD making a resurgence, sourcing heads might 
be an issue.

This promises to be an interesting NAB.

[Tig] Premature Death of SR
Help me here. Doesn't Sony's own stated goals for the SR format say it is 
to 
go filebased? I see the latest developments at the Sony manufacturing 
plant 
as a welcomed inconvenience, which will only get the Cine-Alta more use as 
a 
direct already formatted file (Straight from the camera to your MAC) No SR 

tape involved. Anyone who is predicting the death of SR and a huge 
comeback 
for film is very shortsighted.  I'm sure film makers are rushing to add 
more 
expense to their post (shooting film). You get to wait for your dailies. . 
. 
pay for lab processing. . . pay for a telecine suite to grade in. . . have 

film grain moving like ants over your image on an LCD or plasma and find a 

place to correctly store your film for what? . . Fifty years. That's not 
too 
big of an expense I guess. (sarcasm in use)

And as a follow up to my earlier post. . . Peter Jackson started 
production on THE HOBBIT yesterday with 30 RED cameras and remember 
Spielberg just shot TIN TIN digitally. I'm just saying. . . If anything 
Film is in it's last decade, except to be used by the ultra rich pampered 
film maker . . . And I guess even some of them are coming over to the dark 
side. Hell, I bet Harvey will even go digital soon. . . .

Re: [Tig] Premature Death of SR
Dude.

You do no one any good deed by posting here that digital processing and or 
shooting is automatically cheaper than film. Sure, I'm as tired of grain 
as the next guy, and there are digital formats I absolutely love.. But you 
don't have to pay for dailies? Really? Who pays for the editorial files to 
get made from R3d to Pro-res or Dnxhd? No waiting? what planet do you live 
on? Sure, if someone wants to edit directly with no lut, or straight off 
in-camera qt's, or if they really only want to edit in FCP.... I sorta get 
your point, which I think is weak at best. I don't know any commercial 
editor that doesn't want files to look good, be exactly right to edit 
with, and match TC to a higher res file for finish than what they are 
editing in. I realize that it's not the norm, but it certainly is in 
commercial land.... And digital acquisition quite often means confused, 
time consuming, and costs a lot more to make / convert proper elements and 
store them / ship them. At least in my line of work. And you magically 
don't have to worry about digital storage for 50 years? Do you know 
something about storage arrays I don't??? Film is less archival and costs 
more to store than Digital files?? Really? 50 years?

Re: [Tig] Premature Death of SR
Agree 110% with Craig

We're seeing digital shoots for commercials with a ratio of in excess of
1,000:1. Shoot discipline goes out the window.

What does an editor and post house do with 8 hours of footage for 1 x 30 
sec
ad from a 2 day shoot with several cameras rolling and no thought into the
magnitude of the backend scheduling?

To quote a director with very good reputation "I love this 5D camera, you
just button on and roll". (Should we talk about the blown out whites,
limited depth of field and the rest?)

So there's a couple of terabytes of data and no schedule to even review 
it.
Guaranteed most footage is NG or doesn't even get a chance to be reviewed
carefully.

It OK to make a case against film, but don't forget to keep it balanced. 

As a business, you have to load up the back end to cover transcoding,
ingesting, backup and archiving and I bet the costs start to reach parity.

I'm very happy with the development of digital cameras, but let's hope 
they
raise the bar, not lower it.
