Since you are in the Mission, you might consider getting a proper scan of your 
film instead of subjecting it to a projector and camcorder. Note that you will 
be getting a video with combined fields that often blend two frames together -- 
and unlike a conventional telecine with real 3:2 pulldown the cadence isn't 
locked to anything and will drift. 

Buck Bito and Jennifer Miko run the Video Transfer Center on Van Ness -- they 
are relocating in a couple of weeks and will have a new, far better name. They 
do excellent work in any format -- 8mm, S8, 9.5mm, 16mm, S16, 17.5mm, 28mm, and 

Disclosure:  they have a shiny new Kinetta Archival Scanner, which I make.
