Have you folks noticed this lately?

There are more and more super prints being sold with "screen captures" that are actually very nice stills from the picture, but certainly NOT from the super 8 print that is being sold?

Mind you, this has been around for a long time, but it seems to have really gotten out of control these days.

On a slightly different subject Osi, I bought a 16mm documentary that had reasonably good colour in the screen shot, but when the film arrived it was red. He must have projected it through filters. I have seen one dealer using stills rather than screen shots.
