The Blackmagic Design Cintel Scanner 2 with 35mm Gate is a self-contained 35mm film scanner that interfaces with DaVinci Resolve. It features a removable precision mechanical film gate, sticky rollers, optics, a high-intensity diffuse light source, and sensor. It is designed with an architectural aesthetic that allows it to neatly fit into most environments, yet takes up only a fraction of the size of a traditional telecine machine.

The Cintel scanner will scan negative and positive 35mm film into HD quality for instant preview of your 4K scans. This is the second generation of the scanner, which replaces the original scanner’s Thunderbolt 2 port with a Thunderbolt 3 port, as well as PCIe connection. The scanner is constructed using aircraft design techniques for a stiff and vibration-free main deck, so you get smooth film handling. The Cintel Scanner includes a 35mm film gate, film spools, a set of four cleaning rollers, desk mount feet, and DaVinci Resolve Studio software. The scanner interfaces directly with DaVinci Resolve, which gives you the power to edit film rolls back together, and scans to be color-graded, reframed, noise-reduced, and audio-extracted. An optional 16mm gate and audio/keycode reader expands the capabilities of your scanner
