OK. And Formula One race cars of today can do in excess of 200 miles
per hour while the Indy 500 of (I believe) 1920 or so was won by an
F1 forebear doing the then incredible speed of 55 MPH!!
Just an FYI from my non-technical self. We just transferred an early
1960's industrial film (usual quality of a fourth generation dupe neg
from the original ekta) that was faded to an almost monochromatic
magenta. The film was also a mess of continuous positive cell
scratches and positive cell and emulsion digs caused by the thousands
of AV Club members hands threading and projecting on hundreds of
poorly maintained public school projectors. Just for the heck of it,
we did the transfer on both our Ursa and Spirit.
We got much better color rendition and image clarity from the Spirit
AND 90% of the scratches were gone. So why are we all fighting
By the way, I still cook my food with fire (haven't gotten around to
buying a microwave yet.) However, I don't start my stove with two
sticks or a flint.
