Concerning noise I have some interesting D1 tapes at Duboi with 625
output of FLH 1000 and Spirit with no noise reduction, and since I will have
Twigi fitted in december on my Gold I am quite impatient to see the difference,
my Gold is not a reference but with Twigi I will get the best of Flying spot, I
think Cintel should come over to check my telecine before the test.

Zoom range is better on the Ursa than on the Spirit but quality and
resolution are better on the Spirit when zooming.
