Hello!

I'm currently working in a place (Videoteca - Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa) that has the RetroScan Universal Scanner, to make digitalization of 8mm and super 8mm.

However, during the time that we had spent on digitalization, we saw a "problem" on the movies. When the machine is on digitalization mode, in the screen preview we can see a small blur.

The problem is that when we turn the knob to change the focus manually the image is still not full focused, usually ONLY ONE of the sides is fine.

What will be the solution? I'm doing something wrong?
Maybe, is because the camera's lens is fish eye?

Hi Andre and Welcome...

Moviestuff is probably a better resource to answer your question. There are a few members here that have these machines...but the real expertise is with the manufacturer.

One possibility is that you need to move the vertical adjustment up or down to the next film frame. With 8mm I can chose one of 4 different frames in the viewing window and usually I center on the one in the middle.
Good luck!
