Particle could be basing his (or her) statement on info gleaned from the webs or from watching old westerns, I remember it was a big deal that a movie was shot in Panavision, this statement would roll right after the main title, it was what all AAA titles where shot in back then so it has become the name used for the 35mm format; chalk it up to marketing, same as "Nvidia, the way it was meant to be played"

read it closer rolleyes.gif

Super Panavision 70 while sounding like its a film stock is not film. its the brand name they used for a line of lenses https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Panavision_70

history of panavision as a optics and camera company http://www.panavision.com/history


here is their new Primo 70 that shall replace the Super Panavision 70 line as the industry moves more to digital http://www.panavision.com/products/primo-70-series


there is a difference between format and aspect ratio that appears to be completely lost. the terms are not interchangeable despite what Particle has been posting


Slickwilly nailed it. Particle is confused because of marketing and misinformation from reading stuff online. panavision is a BIG deal and still is. people take pride in using their products but noone has ever shot on panavision film because there is no such thing. shot on panavision means that panavision cameras and optics were used biggrin.gif

So, by your definition of format, DVD, Bluray, HD-DVD, AVCHD, etc... are all the same format?

you just listed a bunch of completely different things. thank you for trying to troll. move along. i did not define format and you are taking the term out of context from an analogue medium and applying it to physical and digital distribution methods.

the term medium can also be used if you want to be specific between analogue and digital. Disc is a medium, the types of discs (encoding method to distinguish between the HD varieties) are the formats. if you are trying to vaguely reference one of my posts rolleyes.gif

by that definition, Panavision is a format shot on film which is the medium.
