I thought this might be some kind of a joke at first, so I checked Steenbecks website and there it is. I wonder if the registration is good enough to incorporate into a film transfer to video set-up.

Ironically, I have noticed that Transfer houses that use wet gate for super-8 transfers may be required to set the tension higher on their film transport systems. I bring this up because a steenbeck, if one has the room, is a logical choice for winding and rewinding film so that it has the right tension for film transferring. If the film is spooled to lightly, it can "sinch" when put on the rank, putting instant scratching all throughout the film even before transferring.

However, some may argue that a good set of rewinds is all that is needed. Although, I have literally burned my hands trying to keep the tension the same on both reels for both rewinds. There are manual tension devices that work better on 16mm and 35mm than super-8mm.

The price is US $ 30,000.00. We will print a report about this table in schmalfilm magazine and inside my new book about Super 8 - coming soon, even in English :)

This new book would be the one with the photograph of Mark Zuckerberg look-a-like with the Movexoom 3000 camera on the cover? :)

A $30,000 8mm Steenbeck.

Isn't that so weird?

But I guess there can be a market for such. The film archive institutions. The transfer facilities. Even if the last Super8 film was shot tomorrow there would still be half a century of 8mm filmmaking sitting around for viewing and transfer.

Still - it's so strange to see.

I wish someone in this town would buy one; I'd love to rent time on it.
