This is the model that looks like the other machines from the 800 series but with both magnetic and optical sound capability. I guess your seller doesn't really know the difference.

Thanks for you r reply. Just heard from the seller and got a picture. It looks like the 810 as you said, and has got optical as wel as magnetical. Seller said they could not get it going. Price about 150 USD. I do not know this model, but am very pleased with my other eumigs. Is this one worth it?

Apart from the Elmo GS, Eumig 800 series are probably my favorite super 8 projectors... The optical version is quite rare, what kind of TLC does it need? If it's simply a good clean up and lube, and, if you really need an optical machine, go for it.

OT, but: I made an adaptor for my 800s that uprates them to take an EJM lamp. At a recent show, some one came up aftrwards and said 'I've never seen Standard 8 on a 6 ft screen before. Isn't it good!'

I have a mint eumig marks/o....looks just like the 810....and it really does a good job. I bought it new back in the 80's..one of the last super 8 clearances from Willougby or one of the new york camera places.
Yes. The adaptor comprises a spacer ring: the EJM lamp is 1 1/2" focus, the EFP is 1 1/4"; and a pai of transformers that provide the extra 9 V to bring the voltage up to 21 V. These last are housed in a 2" high metal box on which the transformers stand. Since there is space in the box, it also houses mains outlets for two projectors and sound and lamp switch-over circuitry.
The projector internal lamp connections are tapped into to insert the additional 9 V feed, but can be readily returned to 12 V.
