Panavision and Kodak have developed a computer based system that uses a
digital camera that allows the DP to take a shot of a setup and download
the frame into a laptop and then he can change film stocks, filters,
exposures, speeds and see the results right in front of him. Stills can be
saved or printed and sent on to telecine. The system is not inexpensive and
has been used primarily on features. If anyone is interested they can
contact Nolan Murdock at Panavision in Woodland Hills (818/316-1000) for
more information.
