This is very true Christopher. Also the quality of a one light can determine
whether shots get used in the final edit or not. A high end telecine can
grade shots to usable standards that perhaps a dailies machine would not,
thus changing an editorial decision and the shot not being discarded. The
way some of the latest generation of machines handle exposure latitude is
breathtaking.
The second user telecine market generally accommodates the dailies market.
They are often priced at the same price as a new low cost dailies machine
but offer far better results but perhaps require more maintenance, hence the
lack of these dailies only machines.
