So this question came up at work today and so I started to investigate it. Background on the question, I work for the Savannah College of Art and Design within their Equipment Cage and currently act as the "semi" camera tech till they officially hire me for the position. Anyway a student ran double perf 16mm in one of our SR2's and some of the other staffers referred this to me because they were unsure if any damage could have occured.
I looked and it looked fine but I was curious anyway because this problem has occured before. Now I have never heard anything wrong with running double in a single system, just the other way around, running single perf in a double perf system is bad (obviously because of punched holes and such).
Anyone else have any knowledge on this subject or is it something that the students shouldnt worry a ton about?
