RE: Goko RM-8008 Stereo Editor

All the editors seem to have the same lamp power Paul. They all use a 6v old motorcycle type bulb.

I suppose if you want the film safe at a stationary frame indefinitely in the manner that editors are used, then I don't suppose they could go much brighter or more to the point hotter.

I don't suppose it is helped by the fact the image is bounced around off 3 different mirrors either before it finally hits the Fresnel screen.

It would be better for sure if they were brighter, but I find it does the job for what I want one of these for.

I GUESS THERE COULD BE A WAY OF INTERLINKING A SWITCH ON THE MAIN FUNCTION SWITCH TO TURN THE POWER UP WHEN RUNNING AND BACK TO LOW WHEN
IN THE STATIONARY POSITION, YOU COULD THEN SCREW A BIT MORE LIGHT OUT OF IT. THOSE NEW CREE LED LAMPS WOULD FIT IN THAT SPACE, AND THERE'S PLENTY OF
DIFFERENT CONFIGS AROUND NOW, VOLTAGE WISE, I DOUBT IT WOULD BE THAT HARD TO DO. WITH 6V ON TAP, YOU WOULD GET A REALLY BRIGHT LED PANEL FOR THAT
ITS JUST THE HEAT GENERATED AND MAGNIFIED BY THE FOCUSING LENS THAT WOULD BE THE PROBLEM.

Yes Paul, I'm guessing you could squeeze more light output from one these now in this era with the advent of ever increasing LED light output.

The Braun SB2 editor uses a 6v halogen bulb maybe one could be fitted to the Goko.

Does anyone have a pdf of the 8008 instruction manual?

The online manuals claim to have them but are mysteriously out of stock!

John I have the halogen lamp fitted in my Goko RM 8008 as said earlier.
It does make it 20% brighter but does tend to produce a hot spot in the centre of the screen when compared with the image using the standard 6v incandescent bulb.

I have the original manual for my editor which quite frankly, if I hadn't read it when first obtaining the editor, you really wouldn't know how carry out all of the recording functions by second guessing with one of these.

Depending on task, the level knobs have to be placed in different positions to gain optimum recording levels etc etc.

I can only photograph each page with an ordinary digital camera because I have no scanner, but I will do this in the manual section here if you could use it?

Finally may I add your full name as your user name to comply with forum policy please?

Ps...you have some fabulous gear there by the sounds of things so I very much look forward to hearing about and seeing all of your Super 8mm on here in the near future.

I myself love the Beaulieu 708 and have a admiration for the Visacoustic 2000 without having ever owned one, so I look forward to discussing the various merits of that one also with you.

The B&H DCT has been a projector that I've drooled over for a long time. I was never willing to pay the price when it was for sale, which is not very often. I know it was made by Sankyo. The 800 foot capacity and 150 watt EFR lamp is very desirable. I believe it is almost the same as the Sankyo 800, another machine that has interested me.

Already having an Elmo ST-1200HD is what has always prevented me from getting one. It would make a great backup, but I filled that gap with several excellent Yamawa-made machines, albeit at 600' and 100 watts.

John,

You have a very interesting and quality assortment of film and projection equipment. I am wondering if you have scanned any of the manuals etc. for the Editors and/or Splicers?
Over at my friend Eivind Mork's free website, www.super8database.com, we have over 1590 Super 8 projectors and over 8400 Super 8 films listed. At some point we may add other devices such as film editors, splicers etc. It would be great if you had any PDF's of user manuals etc. for your Super 8 editors/film splicers that we could add to the database at some point in the future.

Thanks.

I don't recall ever seeing that projector for sale anywhere. I might have read about it on one of the Super 8 database sites before, but I had forgotten about it.

It would be great to have one, but in addition to it being pretty much unobtanium, I have too many projectors already, lol. I'm pretty much set in case my Elmo ST-1200HD one day becomes unusable, but I am kicking myself for buying so many 100 watt ones instead of waiting for something like a 150 watt Sankyo.

I'm a little puzzled why more projectors didn't take the 150 watt EFR lamp, particularly the lower than 1200 sound Elmos. I have silent Elmos that take the 21 volt 150 watt EJM lamp, though. I'm surprised that the GS-800 only took a 100 watt EFP. That's a full 100 watts less than the GS-1200.

For what I collect on film, I really don't need stereo or optical sound. For me, a top-notch lens and bright lamp is what I'm most interested in. If I do ever decide to get yet another projector, it would probably be something like a standard Sankyo 800 or its B&H equivalent. I doubt I'd get another Elmo ST-1200, since frankly they can be a bit of a headache, although my latest one has proven to be an easy ride since I was lucky enough to get one in tip-top shape, as opposed to the first one I got. I've had this one for something like 15 years now -- time flies.

Large reel capacity doesn't float my boat the way it used to, since when I watch it is just me, and more often than not if I watch a feature, I wind up splitting it up into viewing on consecutive nights, sometimes more than 2! While I have many features on 800 and 1200 foot reels, I have just as many on 400 foot reels. And the majority of my collection are short films and digests.
