Further to my other thread, take a look at how well a balance stripe can play back, you will see here the reason why i was fuming. but now im good.
a refund is sorted.
The interesting thing here is how we assume the balance track to be of less quality, in this case on my HD its a good and loud as track 1. According to Van Ek the balance stripe on super 8 is generally of poor quality. wrong!
