I want a Super 8 projector for viewing footage once or twice and determining what to transfer
to Mini-DV for editing. The Moviedeck is easy to use and I like it. I mentioned to a friend "but
the film has so much contact with plastic" and he said "as opposed to metal?"

What wears the film more, do you think, metal rollers on other projectors or the plastic surfaces of
the Moviedeck? Thanks.

I would advise you get a viewer instead. It will allow you to view your dailies and edit with minimal dirt and scratching. The Elmo Dual 912 Viewer is a good choice.

Good advice. I need to edit so that I can take all my selected takes from different reels
and put them on one so that the transfer will cost less. Thanks for the specific
recommendation.

Just out of curiosity though, all those families who watched their home movies again and
again; do ypu think that was an erosive process to have their films sliding over plastic
or metal like that, or is that the important emulsion side doesn't touch?
