am selling a CineMate-20 unit I used for transfering my family's 8mm and Super 8mm home movies to DVDs. I purchased the unit a few years ago and have finished all my needs, so I thought someone else may be able to use the system. By the way, it works great. Information regarding this process and the equipment can be found at http://www.moviestuff.tv/index.html. The unit I purchased is the basic CineMate-20, essentially a modified movie projector that projects the image onto a mirror then onto a large condensing lens. I used a consumer grade video (DV) camera to capture the images, then transfer the DV information onto my computer for editing and burning DVD discs. It sounds more complicated than it is; it is actually quite easy to do. The output is just as good or better than what would be seen on a movie screen; plus it allows an opportunity to edit out the unwanted content and add music. I unit that is for sale is just like new and comes with original instructions. The unit sells new for $1195, plus shipping. I will sell my unit for $600, plus shipping.
