      The perfect way to watch it!

      Graham - could you please remind me of what model that B&H is? Am I right that it was either the last new projector they manufactured, or very close to it?

        Hi Adrian

        The ID plate on it states Model 1680GS made in USA. I bought it around 1996 second hand and its been my main 16mm projector ever since. I am not sure if this model was manufactured near the end, I guess it was. The last time I had a close look at the worm gear it still looked fine, in saying that I always rewind all my 8/16mm films on hand re-winders.

        One aspect I do like with Bell and Howell, is the "three claw" pull down, which makes the projector very forgiving on older films, I can't think of a time where I have lost a loop, I might have somewhere in the past, but can't remember when. I use a 40mm lens on it which works out just right for the size of screen 7.5 meters away.

          Graham, 'Pieces of Silver' is an excellent compilation of American film in all it's diversity, but if you get the chance have a look at something similar produced to celebrate the Centenary of film in the U.K in 1994. 'Reflections' is a compilation of 100 years of British film. It's so skilfully executed to music that fits like a glove. Absolutely superb and the repeat value is very high!

            Thanks Dave

            I bought Reflections UK from Derann on Super 8 when they released it. I totally agree its really superb, and as you say the repeat value is high
