Thanks for the update Todd.

This reminds me I forgot to mention in my last post another benefit of
shooting reversal....the
ability to go direct to an interneg without the need for an IP. One less
step, one less generational loss, and a cost savings. Easier on the
filmmaker's pocket book to preserve the work.

Now if only EK would replace 7361 and 7399....besides a little mercury
never hurt anyone, I've
got a bunch of the stuff in my fillings.
