Hi Forum!!!!

I have a delema maybe you guys can help me out with. My mother-in-law pulled a box full of old Super8 reels on it and I have been eyeballing some 8mm projectors on ebay. I was going to secure a bid on one when a thought accured to me..... can I play the Super8 film on a projector that does not specify a dual setting?

So therein lyes my dilema :blink: can i view (successfuly) the Super8 film on a vintage REVERE 8MM FILM PROJECTOR MODEL P-90???


Thanks for your input and Im glad Ive found this forum!! It will be fun getting to know all of you in the future! :D

Hi, according to my book on movie projectors ( by Jurgen Lossau ) the said projector is an 8mm model from around 1948. You cannot show super 8 films with this projector. Andy

NO! The perforation size and spacing (pitch) is very different, and a regular-8 projector will severely damage Super-8 film.

Kodak did make a few models of "dual-8" projectors that could be switched between formats.
