[filmscanners] RE: 3 year wait



Yes, I got the message.  I meant to say "tube" rather than "lamp" and
probaly should have been more acurrate and said "CRT."  I was told that the
CRT in this particular model was 3.5 inches whereas more modern models of
recorder use a 7 inch CRT, as you note.  In addition, I was also informed
not to expect it to actually perform on photographic images as compared to
presentational graphics anywhere near the maximium 4K spec by a company that
specializes in selling and distributing film recorders and by the Polaroid
technical support people.

The third party dealer suggested that Polaroid even in its newer ProPalette
7000 recorder and the older consumer HR6000 recorder are rarely able to
achieve the full 4K.  Other brands that they sell or have sold do better;
but even with them it is not unusual for the recorder to reach its limit
before reaching the 4K mark.

I am happy to know that now that Dave Hemmingway has left the list there are
other people out there with film recorders who can answer questions
concerning them.  Film recorders and recording appears to be one of those
little known areas of knowledge where there seems to be no existing body of
coedified literature on.

As I mentioned before the CRT in these recorders are about 2"  and have
never given a sharp
image -  the newer FRecorders are 7" tubes.
