I have already poster several queries on the forum with no formal introduction. Sorry about that and here the intro.
I am from Sri Lanka. We have many films that need digital restoration. Since a professional restoration was prohibitively expensive we needed a solution to do it ourselves. I came to know about the Kinograph at it’s early stages, while researching for a DIY solution. And Mathew was kind enough to provide me with design files of his rollers. I went with a DSLR solution (like the early Kinograph) and found a Nikon J1 (with electronic shutter) as a camera to start with. However due to several reasons I had to shelve the idea for some time.
But now there is a reason to get back to it. Our country’s most respected film maker Dr. Lester James Peiris is now 95 years of age. His first film Rekhawa (Line of Destiny) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rekava is 50 years in December. At least I could restore a part of that film (If not the whole film) to e shown at its 50th anniversary it will be a great way to honor the Master.
So, I am back with the project.
I still have the camera and the rollers. I need to start from there.I have seen a sample scan posted by the AACA Library. It seems that they have succeeded to some extent. Hope to hear from them also.
Thanks again for your assistance and advise.
