I am using a telecine unit for the first time and converting super 8mm for a member of the family . I've tried a sample and I get a slight flicker. Is there a way to reduce this or remove it all together. the camcorder is a Sony VX2000

The camcorder's fine - the problem is with your (in all probability) three bladed film projector. If it has a variable speed control it'll need to beturned to 16.66fps. Super-8 will look a little slow and Standard-8 a little fast, but your editing program can take care of that.
