I am wondering how many dealers for purchasers of cine accessories are still in business. I know there are a few still selling films but what about splicing tape, film cement, lamps,spare parts etc? Ken Finch.

I noticed that Eddie Smyth is selling really good quality Jacro splicing tapes.

Hi Ken [Cool]
I'm still have cine as part of my media business of some years buying in the odd Super 8 collection on display for callers, also projector servicing/upgrades when I have the time. I still support students at Uni using film which has been enjoyable.
Other services are HD cine transfers and just about any video tape format to DVD.

There are others trading quietly in film as well and its good to see the movie momentum continuing.
Guess you can add me to your list Ken. See you at Harpers I hope.
