Hello there I hope this is the right place to post this as I am new here and alittle new to filming. I wanted to ask for advice on a choice i have to buy either a Kodak Cine Special 2 or a Canon Scoopic 16m. My question is for filming which would be better to use they are about the same price but I can see downsides to both. For the Scoopic I think a downside could be that it seems to have a fixed lens that i cant change out for another which may become more limiting for future en devours. The Special 2 has the interchangeable lenses which i think could offer alot of freedom for different projects however I don't know what lenses are compatible with it and the price of compatible lenses could be quite pricey. Both the scoopic and special 2 can film between 12 and 60 FPS however the scoopic seems to have an extra settings called ASA which I must admit I am unfamiliar with. The Special 2 however has a stop motion setting for clay-mation and animation that the Scoopic from what I can see is unable to do. Another thing the Special has is masks that could be used to border the image or create effects that the Scoopic doesn't seem to be able to do. Film can size seems to be in favor of the Scoopic. From what I can tell the scoopic does have a 400 foot film can that can be attached to the camera along with standard 100 foot rolls that its built with. The special 2 has only 100 and 200 foot canisters that I can seem to find and as far as i can tell 200 foot rolls arn't made anymore so the 200 foot can is only half useful. The one thing the Special does have for a leg up against the Scoopic is that the Special has quick change film canisters that can be changed out in seconds where the Scoopic seems to be minutes. Finally the Biggest thing is if one of the cameras break. The scoopic seems recent enough that it should be easy enough to fix if it gets damaged. The Special 2 however seems to be somewhat rare to where if it gets damaged I could be S.O.L. entirely. I would very much like some help on deciding between the two.
