I reprocessed the video in Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 just today and I think the picture quality may be a little better if not brighter.

Here is a little 16 MM film I found. You had better stay on the straight and narrow! Actually it is from a real film purchased on eBay.  I ran the film on my Singer Graflex 16 MM projector designed for video capture. It is known as a telecine projector and it has a five blade shutter which prevents flicker when used with a video camera. The image was projected onto plain white printer paper attached to a piece of wood. I set up my Sony three chip CCD camcorder and focused it to the small image (less than 12 inches) on the printer paper. Naturally the image is offset slightly because the camera body would block the light from the projector if the camera was perfectly centered on the image. I think I got the alignment almost perfect even with camcorder being slightly below the projected image.
For the audio I accessed the optical pick up audio signal from inside the projector and mounted a jack on the projector that would interrupt the audio signal going to the internal preamplifier when a cable is plugged into it and feed the signal exclusively to the jack. From this jack the audio signal runs on a shielded unbalanced cable to a small metal box with a 1000 ohm audio taper potentiometer, two 10 microfarad capacitors (negative ends tied together and attached to the potentiometer). The two positive capacitor leads are attached to two other shielded audio cables, keeping in mind that the outer conductor of all the cables inside the box are common and are connected together. These two cables are actually molded together as a single wire with two separate audio signals. This cable runs about four feet and there is a 1/8 inch tip and ring (stereo) plug on the other end. This cable is then plugged into the external microphone jack on the camcorder. This jack provides plug-in phantom (1.5 to 5volts) power for electret condenser microphones and there is power on both tip and ring for left and right microphone capsules. This power must be blocked without short circuiting it and the 10 microfarad capacitors in the box do this very effectively. When the projector is sending audio from the optical pickup, the level and the equalization seem to be very similar to simply having a stereo electret condenser microphone operating normally and connected to the camcorder. The 1000 ohm potentiometer is usually almost all the way up and there is an onscreen level meter in the camcorder.
The camcorder was then connected to a computer with a “firewire” IEEE 1394 cable and I captured the video with Ulead VideoStudio 8.The image was actually recorded on a mini DV tape. Later recordings with this camcorder were often done with no tape and captured only into a computer. While the file was in the computer as type 2 dv .avi, I made the audio louder and clearer with Adobe Audition. Then I converted the video to a flash file using freeware called Avidemux.
