Survey Results

A survey was sent to the Kinograph mailing list of over 700 people. The survey was focused on gauging interest in a smaller Kinograph built specifically for 8mm/Super8mm. Check out the results HERE.


Kinograph is an open source film scanner/telecine for digitizing all gauges of film. It currently supports 35mm and 16mm. 8mm is in active development.
