Pack Up Your Troubles

Laurel and Hardy in a 1200' Super 8 feature. Quite okay, though it shaked a little on my GS-1200

Loved the quote
Oliver: Why didn't you tell me it was you?
Stan: It was so dark, I didn't think you would hear me.

Thank you. The GS has some problems keeping it steady, but it's liveable. It was sharp enough st least

Might just need a little penetration adjustment Vidar. Mine was becoming increasingly noisy and unstable running acetate prior to adjusting.
Steady as a rock now on all stock and much much quieter now, especially noticeable on acetate stock.

Well, it has recently been fixed by Bill Parsons, it might need a lubrication. I had a 200' Pinocchio Comes to Life which was very unsteady and Bill lubed it for me and it ran much better. Will try this when my eyesight hopefully gets better.

Old acetate prints, can be problematic on many projectors. I find that if you briefly clean your print with Filmguard this problem goes away and your print should run rock steady. If the problem persists, then I would consider other causes, such as slightly mis-aligned claw or claw wear.

If I cleaned and fixed the projector myself, I would think tje projector was at fault, but I trust Mr. Parsons enough to believe it's the film and lubrication will fix it. GS is more sensitive than any other projector I have seen.

I know shrunken acetate stock can cause problems on all but a very few select machines.

If, however, this film is rock steady on your ST1200, if the film is well lubricated, I'd be surprised that it couldn't be projected satisfactorily on a GS1200 based on my very limited experience of seeing these in action.

Hopefully Bill or Paul or perhaps some of the other Elmo guys here may be able to shed a little more light on the possibilities for you Vidar.

I do know for certain that I've seen the MK 3 version do a very steady image with older acetate films.
They had been treated with filmguard though on all occasions I have seen one in action.

I like your screenshots Vidar! And that quote sounds exactly like something Stan would say. I think I'm going to remember that one for future use!
