Hi there Tom. Yep I am still around but have been very busy with other things lately.
I have a lovely sharp colour IB Tech Scope print of ALFIE in my collection. Its a bit worn with some scratches and a few splices but I still like it.
Now that's one we never saw in Super 8mm in the UK is it ? If we had it would have most likely been printed on Eastman prone to fade stock anyway.
One reason I want GOLDFINGER on 16mm is that I watched my Derann print of it on Super 8mm and found it was not as sharp or steady as I remembered it to be on the titles. I projected my Blu-Ray to compare on the same size screen and well it simply blew the Derann print into the weeds. The same can be said for the sound too.
It was then if I decided to keep collecting films 16mm would have to be my primary first choice and only if good enough for me.
I recently compared my Standard 8mm and Super 8mm Castle Films horror film cutdowns with the same 16mm Castle films releases and well there was no competition print wise as good as the 8mm Castle prints are. The 16mm came out tops.
Wishing you luck with your future 16mm searches and purchases Tom.

I rang on the day of receiving my listing and was told that I was the ninth person who had phoned for it. Not surprising, what a bargain. I have three Technicolor scope prints and all of them have warping to some degree. Luckily, my Elf still runs them without a problem but it does put me off buying future Tech IB prints.
