Just started shooting super 8mm footage and i'm in search of a a reasonably priced projector to watch and eventually transfer the footage to Mini DV. Any recommendations of a good projector that match my needs would be greatly appreciated.

Over the years I've collected up a few super 8mm projectors from Film and Video Services in Minneapolis. 8mm projectors tend to have all sorts of little quirks and problems... it's such a fragile little format. The auto-feeding Bell and Howell machines seem to have lots of weird feeding problems, and with all of that extra plastic guide stuff in the way they're hard to manually load.

Film and Video Services has relatively inexpensive transfers they can do for you that are pretty reasonable quality, using (as I recall) Elmo transfer machines.
