Warranty information available from Blackmagic Design's website

The Cintel Scanner is a complete solution to realtime film scanning and grading that features precision mechanical film handling components, optics, a high intensity diffuse light source and a built in camera.

The Cintel Scanner includes a 35mm film gate, film spools, a set of four cleaning rollers, desk mount feet and DaVinci Resolve Studio software.

Cintel transfers film directly to DaVinci Resolve which gives you the power to edit film rolls back together, scans to be colour graded, reframed, noise reduced and audio extracted. Using DaVinci Resolve to operate the scanner means you have much more creative control than a simple telecine because DaVinci Resolve has many more features than is possible to do in hardware.
