You know someone who does good, BUT CHEAP, projection prints from 16mm negatives as Vision3 500T, 250D, etc.?
I mean without editing, without application of sound tracks and sound and without no A-B mode, it's not a problem if the splices are visible.
Thank you!

A good portion of the labs that process 16 will print 16. You've just gotta call around. I'd recommend Cine Lab too of course, but they're not exactly around the corner from your location.

I have a step contact printer, a Dixi-700, together with Memochrome, a modern light control.

Can execute one-light exposure. Processing by Cinegrell, Zürich

 

Please PM me for further details

Thanks guys, great advice. Cine Lab has very good prices, but it is true that it is far from me, there is also the possibility of the customs fee and the price is even more would raise.
Simon, you're closer, I sent you a pm.

Just to add, if someone is new to 16mm and has never made a print for projection, I highly recommend it. Grab an old 16mm projector and print a reel or two so you can see it...truly amazing. Fun to combine 100' reels onto one continuous 800' reel too.

 

Who else is still making prints in the U.S.?

 

Cinelab

VideoFilmSolutions

Fotokem

Colorlab

Colorlab and Video Film Solutions are sister companies running the same machines.

Agreed.  You can only fully appreciate the density, contrast, saturation, etc. when viewing a film print.  There are cheap 16mm projectors all over ebay.  I have a Bell & Howell 2585 and, provided you get one that's in good condition, you won't be disappointed.

There is nothing like a fully timed 16mm projection print from Fotokem. Even their "one light" prints are better than most any other prints I've had made.

Especially if you shoot anamorphic, print it and project it. Beautiful! Mine remind me of the 35mm movies of my youth.

Even better, take an old 16mm Projector and have someone like Super16 Inc widen the gate for Super16 projection. Amazing to see super16 projected. Gorgeous!

More like Father/Son companies.

I think I found something in Europe. In your opinion what is a fair price for the printing of a Vision 3 500t?

I can vouch for Fotokem, I remember their prices being low and their quality for a one light print high. I didn't even see my tape splices.

       Funny, I've been thinking of making another print recently, there is nothing quite like the feeling of it- that is- the process of shooting, printing then projecting. Strangely, it doesn't feel the same for me as when I shoot and project a reversal color film.... go figure.
