I went to SMPTE.org and noticed that most of the 16mm
test films are "indefinitely discontinued".
Where can I find 16mm:
-Buzz track (optical sound)
-5000Hz or 7000Hz track (optical sound)
-Picture registration (image steadiness)
Unfortunately, some of the sound test films are "out of stock", as SMPTE
has been unable to find a vendor willing to "adopt" the specialized
equipment required to make them, after the previous vendor declined to
make them anymore.
However, for PICTURE evaluation (including image size, steadiness, and
sharpness), the 16-PA (Recommended Practice RP82) test film should meet
Hope this helps.
