Very good, 30 USD. It says "color shift", but as it is a Marketing film I expect it to be quite red.

I do not get that, most my Marketing releases are decent to good colour

Must be a Norway long term ownership thing then Vidar. Get to 15 degrees, they are all on the turn!

You are in one of the very best places on the planet to stand a chance of preserving and suspending the lifetime of your prints with little expense if you so wish.

Also closed the deal on the animation Hoppity goes to town (1941). Super 8, sound, 2x800'. The color is shifted (no idea how much). Yet again at a great price!

I have also made some nice deals, with the same gentleman. Sands of Iwo Jima, Stagecoach, Girls Girls Girls and the Spiral Staircase,full features, Easy street, Blackhawk sound and two trailers told to have good colours (Lady and the Tramp + Sleeping Beauty, hopefully scope prints ). I´m really looking forward to get my package from the USA.

I've just bought my first Derann features The Sound of Music (6 x 600ft Scope) and Those Magnificent Men (5 x 600ft Scope Stereo) from gentleman selling on behalf of a friend who passed away. Both have original boxes, artwork, spools and countdowns, for £100 and £150 respectively. I now finally understand why the Derann prints are so sought after. The titles were not at the top of my list by any means, but I couldn't pass them up. I'm going to spend some time remounting on 800ft Schneider spools, adding long white leaders and tails before considering another purchase!

Agreed. You've gotten off on a very sound footing there Martin so far as Super 8mm feature film purchases are concerned.
Both decent titles, both offered to you at a fraction of what you could sell them for if you so wished, and guaranteed to be fade free for many years to come yet.

Well done all around Martin, and nice also to hear that although obtained through very saddening circumstances, the films are still being used, cherished and thoroughly enjoyed, which is by far the most important aspect of what may happen to anyone's collection at such times.

Whenever I have learned of films that I have obtained from people who are sadly no longer with us all, it always makes me feel even more responsible than normal to ensure they are preserved as best as these things can ever possibly be.
I like to think to myself that the previous owners would be happy looking down seeing them all enjoyed but very much maintained well, even more so when they arrive to me in mint condition.
As caretakers of such items, I feel duty bound to continue with their excellent work.

One tip Martin I will add, if I may, unless you intend keeping these films forever, try to avoid cutting into an original 600ft spool of a Derann feature.
This does slightly devalue these things should you ever come to sell them.
1200ft is fine, so is 1800ft, 2400ft or 600ft.
800ft unless it is a 400ft mounted feature, is frowned upon.

However they were originally spooled, try to keep them on reels that multiply out equally in each case to avoid cutting into a film mid reel and adding another unnecessary splice.

Boy Andrew, that is a wonderful statement - I couldn't agree more!

Don't worry, Andrew, I'm just mounting each 600ft reel on an 800ft spool. Several of the reels are overflowing, as issued by Derann. Each 800ft Schneider has its own plastic case too. I'll be keeping the original boxes and reels separately stored, so they won't age any further too.

Ha! Yes I saw that, David. It would be cheaper to get one 3D printed.

Hey all, i think i may have just made my last two purchases for the year unless something special comes up, (Die Hard, Trailers for home alone or/& Happy feet).
I am pleased to announce, and looking forward to, the full feature on 8mm of Poltergeist, flat version. Really looking forward to this one and a a very good price to, i wont divulge it here as it would be unfair on the seller. This is a red fox print in its original box and 600ft spools. Receiving in June.

Also, drum roll,
My very best ebay purchase to date, The full feature, in absolutely mint condition of Cross of Iron for just £200. It is a stunning print, not a mark or splice anywhere to be seen & no fade at all. Its a flat version but masked perfectly for widescreen. We will be viewing this one on Wednesday and will pop a review on here with a few screen shots. I say only £200 as the condition of it has to be seen to be believed, & the way 8mm feature prices are going ridiculous to get this quality on film double the size of 8 is in my mind a bargain, the seller also included a list of other titles which i have to say if i could afford more i would buy some but i have to get a grip and some counselling now to stop my spending urges.

We did say we were not going to get too big on 16 due to its size but we now have (in our opinion) four good titles, Kidnapped, (reviewed on here) in scope, Cromwell, also reviewed here, Pork Chop Hill, (ditto),
Cross of iron, (obviously) and All that Jazz plus some TV items. I think one or two really good prints should do us now and preferably in scope as unlike the 8mm, there appears to be no sharpness of image lost.
So hopefully Mr Guest may have some new titles for us later in the year is there as good as Kidnapped in both price and quality its difficult to turn it down.


Have i told anyone i'm after Die Hard?

Tom it's brilliant news you have managed to land a print of Poltergeist. It's a great classic horror film and a very good print indeed. I am sure you'll be delighted with it when it arrives and I for one, eagerly await the resulting screenshots.

Got a Smart phone? If so, log onto forum, attach picture, choose take picture, your camera should come up, snap when a decent picture is on screen. Sometimes they do not get right, just retake it Neil you get a decent one. You can zoom with your fingers on these cameras by pinching fingers zoom in or spreading fingers from middle of screen to zoom out (might be vice versa)

Hope to see some pictures. My best results I get from filming with my Nikon D3200 and taking snaps with Power Director 10, but VLC Video LAN is free to download and will do the same job
