Hey fellas!

No problem, it's a pleasure to share these around. They are such a great resource they should be available to anyone with an interest in cine.

Mark, have just zapped yours off to you. [Wink]

Mike [Cool]

ps: Whilst I haven't kept a record of what has been sent, by far the most commonly requested report is the one for the ST 1200. Guess that must say something about the enduring popularity and reliability of this machine?

Maurizio, it really is no problem. I'm happy to share these with anyone who wants them - that's what hobbies are all about. A great off shoot of this is that I have had great exchanges with people all over the world and even a few dinner invites! [Smile]

Clement, I'll happily send the scan off to you but I'm not in the UK or anywhere near my own pc for another week so won't be able to get it off to you for a while. I'll make a point of doing it as soon as I'm home again though. [Wink]

Hi-Mike,

Thanks for checking for me,its strange they didnt bother with the very popular Chinon brand,probably too mass market for them??

A disc of Bill Davidsons reviews would be great though,I will send you my postal address via hotmail if thats ok.

I once had a pint with the late Bill Davidson at one of the BFCC Holburn fairs and he was a very nice chap indeed,always very enthusiastic about the hobby.

So thats another pint I owe you now!!

Cheers MW

Mark & Mark

You're both welcome!

Mark W; sorry I haven't got your disc off to you yet, having problems with my burner - the draw is stuck shut with a disc in it. Every time I press the eject button it tries to eject it a couple of times and then starts playing the disc. Anyone got any ideas or possible solutions? I've tried pushing something sharp into the little hole that is supposed to trigger the release but that hasn't worked either...

If I can't fix it I'll have to transfer the files to an external hard drive and then upload them onto a different computer.

Mike

Hi Mike-

I'm finally chiming in here. Thanks for all the support services you give to fellow collectors!

I know you havent gotten around to the Bill Davison film reviews yet, but do you recall if he did a review for the Iver 2 x 400 release of "The Giant Spider Invasion"? I had heard somewhere that he had reviewed this, and I've always wanted to read it.

Thanks for checking.

James.

Thanks - that's what this forum is all about and we now have Jon Addams offering all the equipment reviews from '68 - '74 so between us all, we are building up a pretty good resource. As for Bill Davisons reviews, I haven't yet got round to completing an Index - it's a pretty formidable task - so not sure whether he ever reviewed that film. Watch this space though because there is a project in place at the moment that might make Bill Davisons reviews more readily available shortly.

Trev, the chances are I will have that artcle as I have all the Movie Maker Mags form '68 - '85. I'll have to dig them out though because they're currently in a box in the garage. I'll try and do it this weekend and let you know if I can find the article in question. [Wink]

Trev

I've got the 1981 MM mags out and have had a look right through and there's no mention of Apollos Gizmo. Are you sure it was 1981?

I'll happily look at other years if you think it might have been somewhere else. Any thought?

Mike

Maybe it is just "early '80s,sorry Mike. I don't think it mentioned "Apollo" actually,just,an 8mm stereo-viewer from Hong Kong with a wee pic of a kid looking into it. I think it mentioned that the films available were boxing ones.About 10 years ago a guy put a couple of these viewers up on eBay.The auctions ended in the middle of the night and guess who slept through the critical minutes!!Trev

Dennis and Mike, have sent your reviews off - hopefully they've arrived ok.

Trev, I'll have a look through the other Movie Makers from the early years of the 80s and see what I can find. Won't be until the weekend though as it'll mean another rummage in the garage. [Wink]
