Hi Jeff,

I think you'll find that the northlight is well adapted to scanning 
archive film, indeed most northlight's are now used for archive scanning 
and have been for years. For the most demanding work the key parts have 
been re-designed, so there is now a version 2 projector which can be 
driven sprocket-free with capstans, and pinless using optical perf 
registration. For less demanding stock with known shrinkage you still 
get the option of good old mechanical pin registration.

Not that I mean this as a sales pitch, I'd rather see users honest 
comments on here than manufacturers trading blows!
