ELMO or EUMIG ?
Posted 01 March 2008 - 01:52 AM
I recently signed up to this forum and have been searching for information on Super 8 Projectors...this seems to be the best site i have found in regards to projectors so i hope you can help me out.
I am currently searching for a S8 Projector to screen my future personal S8 footage.
The cameras in use (if it makes any difference) are; Canon 1014XL-S and AGFA FAMILY C-100.
So there will generally be 50ft Films. Although i would like to have the choice of screening much larger films ie. 600ft.
OK so which do you think is better?
Elmo ST 180E
EUMIG S 912 GL

I'd have to say Elmo beats Eumig. They are both good machines, but the Elmo's film path is more accessible, therefore easier to clean and save your film if it jams. I have a Elmo 1200 that I love, however my favorite super-8 projector is the Bolex 18-5 "toaster" model with an adapter to use a halogen bulb.

thanks for your reply! i will check out the Elmo projectors then...
i have also seen an Elmo 610D for sale in my local area...and have heard this is also a decent model on the cheaper side...

You can see one here along with an Elmo K-110SM:
It's easy to confuse it with the Elmo K-110SM (top of the page). It has similar features. I have one that I found in a thrift store and I don't like it too much. It has really poor registration in Super-8 mode. Maybe it's just mine, but it seems to be something to do with the design compromise made in allowing dual formats.

would be extra nice if it had 24fps!
