Nice little promo included. But I'm not sure if this will backfire as the Eumig's fixed projection speeds mean that the transfers have an inherent flicker. Although the 'trashy super 8 look' is probably what the seller was looking for; it's possible that a buyer may not realise that the majority of the footage is shot with a video camera (as you can see when the cameraman's silhouette is visible)and only the very short grainy shots were obtained from the projector.

The speed change on this range of machines is far better than on the previous (800 and before) Series machines. They used an "up and down" slider which was virtually impossible (and not recommended) to change speed whilst running. These later models have a similar 2 disc arrangement with a more compact motor and the speed change is effected with a front panel knob turning a lead-screw. Speed change during running is practicable with care, so fine control for transfer is usually possible. Martin
