I'm using a Pathescope 9.5mm GEM projector as an editor. So as not to cause any damage to the films, I run the films very slowly at about 25% speed, and use a low power light source – without any modification my Zebralight torch fits in place of the original 100 Watt bulb. I run the Zebralight at its lowest setting.

This question is about Physics, so I've taken it to the Physics forum (https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/image-is-inverted-when-i-look-into-a-projector-lens-why.916257/).

Guy, The answer is in the word "Projector". The lens inverts the picture as it projects the image onto the screen. A projector is not a viewer. The images are always inverted as they pass through the projector gate no matter what gauge of film it is. Ken Finch.
