Hello everyone!,

I have a Elmo ST 180 E projector and are not sure if I can use standard 8mm film as I don't have any to test. Can this projector take super8 AND regular 8mm?

thanks!

This projector is suitable for Super 8/Single 8 only.

Pete, not sure if you found an answer to your question somewhere else. In case you didn't, please allow me to reply:
Elmo ? like Eumig and Bauer ? indeed produced several projectors that could take both Super 8/Single 8 and Regular 8. Unfortunately, your Elmo ST-180E isn't one of those.

Normally, dual-format projectors feature a clearly indicated switch marked S8/R8 or S8/N8 (N8 stands for the German "Normal 8") either on the outer casing or inside the projector close to the film transport mechanics in order to change between the two formats. Look out for that one if you are unsure in the future.
