STANDARD AND SUPER 8

I've had to separate the 8mm stuff out as the page was getting too complicated. Bolex, Elmo, Zeiss, Dralowid and Eumig have their own pages. Where I have more than a pic or 2, there is an alphabetical order section on a Various page. A useful intro from ACW and odd snippets are below.

8mm Projectors

In December 1957, ACW started a listing of 8mm projectors, continued in a number of subsequent issues. It seems to be a much more detailed account, on a technical level, than any I have previously seen. It also gives details of many machines that were never marketed in the UK. What better intro to the world of 8mm? And of course, it dates from a time when projectors were real projectors and made of metal.

Below is an interesting take on the Standard 8 idea, in an early form of double-run but without the extra sprockets. I think it's just as well they decided to go into coffee instead.

A Bauer, plus test report and ad, then a Meopta OP 8, followed by something that looks very much the same but is a Beaulieu. These two are maybe a bit unusual, but not as much as the drunken loops of the Atom 8. And is the B&H 8 or 16? - whatever, it's very horrid, like a 70's re-design of a previously nice machine.

Not sure what this first one is; mite be 16. The last two are a Memel (?) 8mm and a Cinar (?).
