    What exactly is a spherical process? I'm guessing it has something to do with the developing and processing. Thanks in advance

    It actually has to do with the lenses you use. You can either shoot spherical or anamorphic process.

    Spherical means traditional lenses (i.e., not squeezing lenses). Anamorphic means optically stretching/squeezing the image (anamorph = greek for "changing shape", essentially). So spherical lenses are "normal" lenses.

    That's just an odd way of referring to it.

    I think I may use that term to impress clients: "For this film I intend to shoot it with a spherical process..."
