Hi!

I'm new to this forum and want to say hi to you all! I've just started on this hobby (again in a way) and found this forum, I like how it seems more serious than most forums out there, and I have found answers to most my questions searching trough the forums, so yet my only reason I'm posting this now is to say hi [Smile]

I have had a Bolex SM 80 electronic a few years now, both works and looks like new!

And now I have bought a Singer Instaload 2200 series 16mm
Guess its no problem rewiring that to 230v?

Thanks a lot for that!

I have a few cartoons on 8mm, but I'm rely short on films yet, my wish list for now is:
Clash of the Titans on 8mm
Terence Hill and Bud Spencer films on 16mm

Hi Thor, and welcome to a fellow Scandinavian (I am Danish.)

You are well on your way to the same deep debt and complications we all face in this hobby, but you know, it's worth it [Smile]

Once you roll a film, all comes clear...glad to have you on-board.

Claus.

Thanks!

I've seen complications before, it didn't stop me:p when i was 13 or something, i tried watching film without an takeup reel...
Now i'm 21 and wont be doing that again [Wink]

Edit: thats was because I didn't have a takeup reel, just so you know. [Razz]

Fair Warning Thor: Digital talk instead of Film will mean that the closest member to you here will make you sit on a Hot Projector Lamp! [Eek!]
Welcome!

Hi Thor ... cool name! You can't help but be considered manly with a name like Thor ...

... a lot better than Melvin.

(I apologize ahead of time to all the Melvin's and they're masculinity!) [Smile]

Thor is definitely a cooler sounding name than Osi! [Razz]
*Spanks Osi with reel 1 of "Grizzly Adams" in LPP Low-Fade Super 8mm Optical Sound* Hmmm... make that on AGFA stock instead, because when it was printed LPP stock had not come into use yet... [Smile]

All the prints of that film that I'm looking for were on eastman film stock ... so while I would like to find a perfect color print, I probably won't, but I'm hoping for at least decent color ...

well, OSI isn't that "un-cool'! It's easier than my full name ...

"Kevin Shawn Sparrowhawk OSI Thorton Osgood" [Razz]

And of course, welcome, welcome and double welcome again!

Now sparrowhawk sounds like a character that Mr. Adams knew. So that explains the connection between you and the film [Wink]
Just kidding of course [Smile]
