How true. I got a Sankyo projector off eBay from Alaska and it must have been stored where the sled dogs sleep. It cleaned up okay and is actually in pretty good running condition, but it smells like animal secretions!

Someone tell me how they managed to test a super-8-only projector using standard 8mm film - and conclude that everything worked fine. [Razz]

Maybe this is one of those dual-format projectors that can be switched form Standard8 to Super8/Single8?

Joerg, that's just it - the B&H Filmosonic projector is a super-8-only machine. I should know as I'm on my second one personally. [Wink]

Doug, wow! What is that "projector" doing in the slide projectors category [Roll Eyes] Should get nice sound out of those magnetic stripes, though, eh [Wink] I'm still looking for the lamp and lens, though [Razz]

Some people are so deranged. If somebody bids on that I'm going to pass out.

Re: the audio projector -- the seller had to say "WOW!" because "FLUTTER" would sound girly.

Crazy. [Eek!] Either this print is 100% faded to blank, or the guy is offering a full-coat perforated magnetic tape and doesn't know it. [Eek!]

I have contacted the seller and he replied that he has a reel with transparent cells but soundtrack with it.

I don't know if this actually exist, what for?

Jan is right, this could be an extreme case of fading. Funny listing.

JM, as I mentioned above this is his reply

just clear film ,only thing that was printed on the film was the sound track of the movie.
So what does it mean?

It just occurred to me that if this was a regular print that had completely faded away, then the soundtrack would have, too. In other words, the explanation about a soundtrack-only print sounds plausible. [Eek!]
Isn't that how 16mm prints are made, anyway - from separate picture and soundtrack negatives? Or am I talking gibberish?

Here's someone who's at least being honest about what he's selling..."one of the blurriest prints I've ever seen"!

This Bauer super-8 machine plays 16mm and 24mm film! Wow! [Eek!]

Nope, I've never heard of 24mm film, either [Roll Eyes]
