Super 16 is an image format used in film productions.
Super-16 is located on the picture field of 12.35×7.42mm (width time height). The image side ratio is 5 to 3 or 1:1.66. In contrast to the ordinary picture on 16 mm film, Super 16 offers more than 20 percent more usable negative image area, and thus a better resolution.
The Krasnogorsk-3 (Красногорск-3) is a 16-mm windup camera made in the former Soviet Union.
The K-3 has been adopted by many film schools, including the University of Southern California's School of Cinema and Television. It has a semi-automatic diaphragm setting.
Its low price, rugged construction and sophisticated optics have made it very popular with both beginning filmmakers and professionals. Among the K-3's credits are music videos for the Spin Doctors and Suicidal Tendencies.
Director Spike Lee shot some of the footage in his film Get On The Bus using a K3. There is a photo of Spike holding a K-3 on the cover of the soundtrack CD.
The Krasnogorsk-3 features:
17-69mm f1.9 zoom precision Zenit Lens
Electronic exposure meter
Continuously variable speed from 8-48 fps
Rotating mirror beam-splitter
