I watched a recent feature I'd purchased a few months back this evening. It was from an American collector who most already know, Mr Steven Sigel.
The film was City Heat staring Clint Eastwood & Burt Reynolds and as it was Optical Sound Feature I was forced to project it on my "most worthy" and faithful ST1200 M/O.
Anyhow the film thankfully ran flawlessly through the PJ on this occasion and I must be honest in saying I did think to myself, "this machine ain't half bad".
Granted the sound quality wasn't anything to write home about but the dancer settled down within the leader section of the film (unusually) on this one and I have to say, the image quality and steadiness of the frame was spot on! Not bad for a machine that had been in hibernation for 6 months!
Never scratched a frame on this occasion I hasten to add, but equally, I was never more than 100mm from the main switch just in case it chose to have a random "dicky fit" as we all know these can on occasions!
Anyhow, on this occasion at least, I was most pleased with the Elmo ST1200. There, I've said it now.
