I think so. Jack (the owner- email suppressed ) printed most of my 16mm films on his contact printers. I never noticed any dissolves (unless a machine was acting up), so I'm guessing they're fast enough. I definitely would have noticed. Jack would know for sure, though. I rarely worked on the contact printers. On the optical printers, however, most of the jobs I did were zero cut. The printer ran slowly enough and the shutter fast enough that the transitions were really nice.
Never used a Hammann, but I've heard good things.
