If you are looking for a projector to run your films, I would seriously consider these facts:
8mm Projectors can be 30-75 years old.
16mm Projectors can be 30-85 years old.
Bulbs cost a fortune
Very hard to find parts
Projectors with low hours can go for $200 - $500 plus $50 shipping (heavy item)
Most importantly projectors chew up and break film all day long
If you are considering trying a ' Do it yourself ' transfer, consider these facts:
The difference in shutter speeds of projectors & standard camcorders produce a flicker.
Standard camcorders can produce a very poor reproduction of color and sharpness.
Lenses on projectors tend to be very low end on the later models, blurring images.
Mirrored transfer machines are still dependant on the quality of camorder and could be poor.
Frame by frame scanners are the only way to go, they range from $3,500-$50,000
Even with the right equipment, it will still take you months to figure it out.
Our average film transfer customer spends $250 to transfer everything professionally.
