More DIY telecine madness -- 16mm projector recs.?

Post by ALAN » Thu Jul 19, 2007 10:01 pm

I'm going to try the 1/2 frame -- 1/2 height (wide format) conversion of a 16mm camera. Run the film through twice like the H8 & DS8 cameras, but of course the big stumbling block is the projector to convert for frame grabbing.

Could anyone recommend a 16mm projector that has a built in slow speed that's easy to remove the shutter? My BOLEX 18-5L works like a dream for S-8 @ 5 fps, but don't know where to start 16mm-wise.

Help please.

Thanks, alan
