Hi everyone.  I'm not sure if this is even done, but does anyone know of any merchants that do 16mm-to-S16 projector conversions?...

 

Thanks.

I've been looking around for quite sometime. The problem is re-aligning the lens. Most all 16mm projectors have fixed lens mounts.

It will be interesting to see if anyone responds to this, as I will be working on Super 16 with my students and don't have a great way to project the prints.

Note that he doesn't usually recenter the lens as most 16mm projectors have wide enough lenses to cover super 16 as is. You'd just send him the gate from an Eiki or Kodak pageant.
