I am currently looking to purchase a super8 projector. I am not looking to use this as a way to transfer the film to video, i simply want to watch my super 8 films with it.

Does anyone know a few things i should look for when i am deciding on which one to purchase?

I don't know anything about projectors, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks-

Hi Nick,
the bulb! I strongly advise you to get a projector that uses the standard 100w 12v reflector bulb (looks like the kind you might have in a house or a shop as a little down light). There is another common type - looks like a spaceman. these spaceman bulbs are hard to get and expensive and not very bright.
If you aren't projecting sound film, then a silent projector with less moving parts could be a good idea. But decide if you need 24fps.
A classic super 8 work horse is the Elmo St180 or St600. Thats a great investment if you see one.
