I just got done surfer the web, mostly e-bay, and I am at a loss as to which projector I should buy.

I am looking for either a dual S8/8mm or just a straight up Super8 unit. My head is spinning from all of the options out there, so I guess im looking for helpful info such as reliability, projection quality, all-around good name and the like.

im trying to keep it under $50 bucks and there are a lot of em out there for way under that..... but which one to settle down with???

Thanks in advance for any info and wisdom you might be able to pass on to a Noob trying to make his way through the vast world of 8mm.

Elmo is a good name to go with. Try the ST180E. The variable speed will help you out (set to 20fps) with transfers to video for test purposes (in a pinch). The quality will not be great but it works!

One of the Eumigs was the only super 8 sound projector I know of to accomodate both super 8 or regular 8 sound.

Hi, look out for one of the most underated make of projectors, 'Noris' for dual 8 look for the norimat-d projector, a yelco mp350 dual guage projector however should be within your budget. Eumig 810hqs is a dual guage sound model. One of the last dual 8 projectors made was a bauer t183. If you see a noris in full working order, i recommend that.
