Just a quick question, which one out of the two models would you choose and why?

Thank you

They are very similar so doesn't make much difference. Some 807Ds were only equipped with 75 watt bulbs. However, if you can get an 810 with the Lux package (better lens) or the High Quality sound package, that is really worth having.

Thank you Zechariah. I'm in the market for a dual format Eumig and I've seen the 807 and 810 but couldn't quite find that much info in regards to the differences between the two.
I have a few standard and super 8mm films and just want something that'll can play both.

I have an 810D HQS (that I got from Zech) and I use it just for regular/standard 8mm sound only. It is easy on film, very good sound quality and nice bright picture. Also a big picture as well. The other 8mm sound projector I use is a Kodak sound 8 but it has a fixed lens so the picture is much smaller.

Can, you can look at this very informative site to compare different models. As Zechariah spotted out, the 807 D has a 75 watts bulbs instead on a 100 watts one and a lower quality lens.

Hi Can,

The 810 usually has a sharper zoom lens and sound was louder.The 807 didn't have wither; but I was happy with the 807 when I've had it.

What is a "wither" ? When I look at the translation in French, I cannot relate that to a "cine thing". The closest thing that could be the pre-heating lamp system but that's just a guess.

I would go for the S810D if you can find one. It has a 1.3 15 - 30 zoom, rather than 1.6 on the 807D, and the brighter 100W lamp, which illuminates a good large picture. Eumig manufactured 130,000 S807Ds from 1973 right through to 1978, and 140,000 S810Ds from 1973 to 1976.

If you can, try and get hold of an 824 Sonomatic. Only 41,000 were manufactured between 1977 and 1978, so they're not quite as easy to find. It is dual gauge Super 8/Standard 8, 100W lamp, superb sound with increased dynamic range, and came with a sharp Suprogon 1.2 12.5 - 25 zoom as standard. I have the 820 Sonomatic (Super 8 only) and it's a fantastic projector.

As Zechariah says, also keep an eye out for 'Lux' and 'HQS' on the S810Ds too.

When I bought a new Eumig many years ago I went for the 807D as it was much cheaper than the 810D. It served me well.
However, if now given the chance the 810D would be a better bet.
But the best one to go for today is the 824 SonoMatic which is a dual gauge and has many new features as apposed to the earlier models.
