I was wondering if it is possible to scan the old Our Gang and Little Rascals to 4K resolution. I think it would be fun to see the difference. Does anyone here have any old negatives and a way to scan a few screen shots?

Hmmm... i think it would be super overkill. Technically it could be done but I cant imagine the picture would be true 4K. Would certainly be a waste of data/disc space. I worked at a photo lab for years and there was only so much improvements we could do. I cant even imagine for negatives 50-80 years old. MAYBE 720P max? I was able to change a 720P video clip to 1080P but all it did was increase the file size itself. The picture quality didnt improve at all. I know most people associate Blu-Ray with HD, but for environmental reasons, I wish more companies would use it to put more data/movies/shorts on a single disc instead of releasing multidisc sets (6GB versus 46GB for one bluray disc). Example is the The Little Rascals - The Complete Collection couldve fit on 3-4 blu-rays rather than the 8 regular discs it was released on. But maybe im wrong. Am curious to see anyones result of trying!!
