Are there any pin registration systems for 16mm that output a more stable 
image than the best edge-guided gates?  I tend to think that the decision-
makers in pre-production won't select a 16mm format if image stability 
is a high priority.

An Olympics of telecine is clearly called for, every four years, but who 
would be the judges?
