Chris, just picked up your reply and the link worked perfectly. What an interesting site. To see an article on the Cinegel Royal 235 was a bonus as I imported one of these 9.5/16mm machines on the understanding it would be supplied for 240 volts. When it arrived I plugged it in and the bang could be heard in Australia. The lights went out and the room was filled with smoke!!! The distributor had supplied one for 110 without the transformer. Happy memories.

I'm not very knowledged on 16mm equipment yet. I've only been collecting Super 8. I do believe that the Elmo 16 CL is only optical sound and the CX-350 is magnetic and optical. Can the 16 CL really see much use? Magnetic films seem more common.
