This question is a bit esoteric due to the limited availability of both brands of projectors. But perhaps some of you US projector purist's and European's with greater equipment availability of the Bauer P7 or P8 line and the Fumeo's (any model) could comment about these two 16mm projectors. It seems they are top of the line but sadly nothing is said about the two side by side.

I use a Bauer P8, it works incredibly well, it's not so simple as a slot load, especially if you don't like the auto load, but it's a great machine anyway, it will work everywhere in the world, and it will very rarely break down, not even the belts have any problems. Also it's a very recent machine, dating from the 1980s, the latest ones from '91. Hope I could help.

If portable is not a must, I can only recommend the Bauer Selecton IIo.
This machine is a theater size 16mm machine with Xenon lamp and geneva film transport.
It handles your film oh-so-gentle. This was also built as a Selecton IIw version which is transportable
and has an incandescent lamp (does not make as brilliant pictures as the IIo but still very good).

Greetings,
Marc
