Advanced IMAGE CATCHER: Achromatic Lens!, Custom Designed and Built to my own specifications for both the highest quality and best imaging results.I tested multiple designs and fixed all the current known issues common with other video transfer systems. (U.S. Patent Pending)
No more Jittery images from vibration
No more need for dark rooms or reflections from ceiling lights
No more shadow or dual images from poor optics
Due to the small image size of 8mm film, any shaking or jittering is magnified the further away you must place the camcorder for digital capture. This feature combined with our vibration damping system eliminates ALL of the jittery images commonly associated with other systems.
Ambient Light Elimination System. – Specifically designed to block out ambient light so you can convert your film in any surrounding light conditions. Does not need a dark room, no more reflections off of ceiling lights likeother type transfer equipment.
Achromatic Lens (MSRP $299.00):Ultra low reflection multi-coatings, Free from chromatic aberration (colour distortion) Sharper Images, No more Blue or reflective coating minimizes reflection off internal CCD & CMOS sensors. Other lens can provide simple magnification. Only DHG Achromat Macro filters can provide the full-frame sharpness, detail, and clarity that today's professionals demand.
Custom Vibration Damping System – No more jittery images.
Professional High Quality Lenses – precision, professional quality and color corrected condenser lens (Made in Japan).
Custom Pre-aligned Fixed TRANSFER STAND: As I researched and tested the design I noticed that most people would have problems with setting up the correct alignment for focusing and creating the best image quality. So I built a custom stand and did it for you. No more wondering if the alignment is setup correctly.
Detailed Camcorder Alignment Instructions - The unit comes with detailed instructions for camcorder alignment (VERY CRITICAL), so that you know exactly how to setup your transfer system for the best possible image quality.
Free Email Support – I will personally stand behind the quality of my systems and I want to make sure you understand how to both use the equipment to get the best quality results and ensure your satisfaction. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Some Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Who am I and why buy from me?
A: My name is Chin Kim & I've owned Focus Photo (a professional photography lab, 573 S. Maple Rd. Ann Arbor, MI 48103 734-663-0800) for over 26 years and have experience using everything from color negatives, slides, b&w photos, video tape transferring, movie film transferring, to the most current digital imaging. This is the exact system I use in my own lab and we have the capability of transferring up to 100 tapes per day. We're known across the country for our amazing imaging quality and customer service.
Q: What is Achromatic Lens?
Achromatic Lens Assembly
An achromatic lens assembly ensures that all colors are focused at the same point. Achromatic assemblies are particularly good at compensating for chromatic aberration, an optical effect that can be seen as color fringing in the image, usually at high contrast edges. They also improve spherical aberration, an effect where a white point is projected not as a point but as an out of focus blurb.
Optical Dispersion of a Single Lens
A single lens bends different colors at different angles. When a beam of light passes through a single lens, the different colors are bend at different angles based on their wavelengths (called dispersion), and the lens will focus the different colors at different points. The result is chromatic aberration, an unwanted colorfringing that will lower the lens' resolution and that is also problematic in special effects matting and blue and green screen work.
In a two lens achromatic assembly, one lens is compensating the dispersion introduced by the other. For such purpose, one lens is usually made in a crown glass with low dispersion, while the other is made of a flint glass with high dispersion. The crown lens performs the desired optical effect (for example magnifying an image) and introduces some dispersion, and the flint lens aims at balancing this dispersion while having the least possible optical influence itself.
Q: Why I use ELMO (Elmo ST-600M or ST-180E)
A: The Elmo projectoris The Best, all professionalsare looking for Elmo projectors.The durability, ease of use and projection results are far better than anything else on the market. This is essentially the Lexus of film projectors.
Q: Can I use my own camcorder?
A: Yes, in fact you will need your own camcorder to transfer the film to a digital format. We recommend that you have a high quality 3CCD(or 3CMOS)camera(or camcorder) in order to get the highest quality image. This unit needs a camcorder minimum 14X optical zoomor 12X withdigital zoom (You might need Close up Filter +1 or +2).
Q: Why don't you use new projectors?
A: We would like to use a new projector but no one makes new projectors anymore. We've found that these projectors work just as well after our thorough refurbishing process. And a new projector would only drive up the cost for you and I'm committed to giving you the best value for your money. The entire unit is completely refurbished prior to modification with all metal film surfaces professionally polished, belts replaced and all moving parts cleaned and lubed.
Q: Do I need a computer or software to adjust the image?
A: No, you can adjust both the speed using our custom variable speed controller and the dimmer to adjust for both flicker free transfer and optimal brightness for both over and underexposed film. You could use programs such as Pinnacle Plus or any video editing program on the market for more fine adjustment with a computer.
Q: What if I need more help setting up or transferring my film?
A: I offer FREE email support to answer any questions you may have about setting up and using your new transfer system.
My design, build and transfer quality and optical lenses are better than any other units on the market using a similar method.
Again, please feel free to check out other systems and models, and also be sure to look at the photos and email me with any questions you might have. (even if it’s about another system or about film transfer in general.)
This is an example of a complete transfer system that you could make(The Real Time Scan and Burning DVD)
The DVD burner is Sony VRD-MC5.
You can use your own camcorder.

Here’s what my customers are saying about this system....
Dear Focuskye!Last wednesday I recieved the Elmo Super8 Telecine unit, and I must say I'm deeply DEEPLY impressed! First of all by the really super-fast shipping! I could never imagine that it would ship so fast, and both the package and packaging were in perfect condition! And then the quality of the transfer itself! WOW! All in all, after surprisingly easy calibration of the camera setup and finding the "sweet-spot" of feeding the film to get it flicker free, I was just amazed! Thank you very much for a great machine! It will greatly simplify my transfers! As I will still need this Telecine for Super8 films and sound transfer, my sincere hopes and beliefs are that we will soon do business again, when I come shopping for a Dual8 Telecine. I wish to buy from you again as soon as I've earned the money needed!A most satisfied customerConny
"Far better images compared to other system"
Thank you again for a positive experience !The projector arrived today, quite quick considering Canada Customs. It was packaged so well, I am sure it could have survived world war 3 !!! So good to see the care you have taken to ensure it arrived as it should.I have just started putting it thru it's paces and the image is awesome ! Your "tweaks" to this machine make it very easy to use and the lens is very high quality making the end result extremely good. Makes frame by frame = shame by shame as far as I am concerned !I was impressed with how quickly I could set up and convert. Flicker free ! Both the speed dial and dimmer are great additions to help ensure a quality end result. Actually, all of your modifications and improvements are appreciated and your time of experimentation shows thru.In the few times I called you, your knowledgeable expertise is greatly appreciated ! I am thankful to know that if I ever have any problems or questions, you?ll be there to support me. The maintenance kit is a very nice touch, but, the inclusion of additional belts and ?bit?s and pieces? was a welcomed addition. I look forward to using this new machine as my business goes forward and look forward to working with you again in the future.Best of luck to you ! Thank you again, Todd
