Some customer may be wondering just how much information is actually on my film. Most amateur 8mm and Super 8 film requires a 2K scan in order to get 100% of the details. We have done over 50 studies and in each case the 2K scan always resulted in a 25-30% sharper image. Older 16mm print film has around 2K worth of information. Negative 16mm and newer 16mm and S16mm can have up to 3K lines of resolution. Older 35mm print film has around 3K-4K lines while newer 35mm film can have in excess of 6K lines. A 2K scan (2048 vertical ×1556 horizontal) will get around 1500 horizontal lines from the film. 4K (4096 vertical by 3112 horizontal) will get around 3100 lines. So, you can see that to truly archive 8mm or Super 8 film you have to scan it at 2K resolution. To archive 16mm film a 2k for print or 4K for negative scan is required. A 4K scan will get the majority of resolution on older 35mm film.
