I'm not sure about the model. I have however had a poor experience with this seller in the past.

States on the back Yashica Sound P810 - Not seen one before so no experience of it, but Yashica are a respected name in photography.

This seems like a buyer beware thing.

Video runs at 30 frames per seconds is what I have been taught.

The faster the frame rate, the less flicker there should be.

I realize some tools for transfers do correct this.

However, I think a projector running at normal 18/24 would be better suited for the job.

Correct me if I missed something.

True, video in North America runs at 30 fps. But a projector running at 20 fps will show on the video screen as flicker-free. That`s how DIY video transfers work when using a projector with variable speed. And the slight difference between film shot at 18 fps and projected 20 fps is hardly noticeable. At least with silent film. With sound film there would be a change in pitch than might be more noticeable. I would expect the pitch difference when running film shot at 24 fps at 20 fps to be unacceptable.

I am in full agreement with Evan regarding the seller. There is a thread in this forum regarding him.

20fps*3 blade shutter = 60 flashes/second,more or less equal to NTSC field rate 59.94 Hz. [Wink]

Should be okay for silent,surely no-no for sound film. A 5-blade projector is a must then.

Just a lone collector from a faraway land...
