I don't know if there is already an existing thread for this but I've just received a colour correction filter set I ordered via eBay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/16mm-film-COLOR-CORRECTION-FILTER-made-to-fit-any-16MM-PROJECTOR-LENS-even-SCOPE/201587845664?_trksid=p3693.c100102.m2452&_trkparms=ao%3D1%26asc%3D2014021 2121249%26meid%3D3d27f2d7ec444d16894bb6efa7453686%26pid%3D100102%26

It was made to order to fit my Elmo SG1200, I've tested it on two faded reels and the results are staggering, way better than I thought they could be with natural skin tones and vivid colour throughout.

It is well worth the $35/£24 (approximately, including delivery) asking price and I can recommend it as a solution for anyone with faded colour/pink tint prints.

I bought it myself, in fact it's efficient (if the film is not too red) and cheap for the result.

That' a nice set, i wouldn't mind getting one of those myself. I lost my "pinwheel" quite awhile back and could use that.

My "pinwheel" was one of those things used at parties, which was a round glass wheel that's used at parties, in front of the light, to show a rainbow of colors at a constant rate, (it had a motor on it originally so it would constantly revolve) ...

... so, I just took the wheel part of it, and placed it in front of my projector and simply turned it to the desired "filter". it was quite nifty. [Smile]
