Posting stuff you actually own.

#1 by David Hardy ( deleted ) , Thu Aug 06, 2015 7:48 pm

Hi All
I think it would be more interesting if people were to post photos of projectors/ films /posters / etc. of stuff they actually OWN.
Otherwise it is in danger of becoming just an extension of Google images on the internet.
Okay with me about 70mm/35mm projectors as a side interest but I thought this was a FILM COLLECTING Forum open for discussion and print reviews and other stuff.
So come on folks lets not just post stuff in the Galleries we don't own. Makes no sense to me as I can find most of the stuff over the web.
Cheers
Dave

Agreed, I am only posting material I own.

That's what the My Equipment album is for :-) The other is for posting pictures of things you feel is worth showing others, not need to own them. But if you own it, post it in My Equipment under your album (your name is good for album name). Then we can see who owns what and I can bug Mr. Hardy to buy his Fumeo, since I know it's his :-) Ha, ha, relax, David, I can't afford it :-)

Problem with posting only things you own, for example posters, I'd have no contributions at all, but love to see as many as I can.

Robert
I am glad you agree. It is only worthwhile posting an image from the web for stuff you actually have.
Better still an photo or scan of the actual item.
It only makes sense to post "rarities" none of us have access to.

For sure :-) My GS-1200 is sooo picky on film. Lots of jumping and sidemovement compared to for example the cheap Chinon 6100, which seem to run just about any film. Almost think it would run a sprocketless film :-)

The Elmo GS1200 and GS 800 are not so good at projecting certain film stocks as other machines.
My Elmos are the same and they can really bug me at times.

I never have any bother with my Eumigs as regards print steadiness. Only speed problems at the moment as the drive discs are starting to wear out.

Yes, David, there's no point in posting something that others can find on Google images; posting what you own will make it more interesting. I loved the posters you put up. I loved the ABC cinemas, and used to buy 'ABC Film Review'; the cinemas eventually went EMI, then Cannon, then briefly back to ABC, but after a few months it changed, and now it's Odeon.
