Incredibly interesting stuff on Ilford, Ilford-Elmo, and Johnsons of Hendon - Eumig UK.

Shame there is not more info AFTER the CZ acquisition of all Elmo products from Ilford here in the uk Paul.
Otherwise a very interesting read, even if more inclined to still photography than our beloved cine!

Interesting that the Ilford-Elmo FP-8 projector had remote powered focussing! Something I have never seen before on any 8mm projector, and something which is now a feature on some high end home digital projectors.
And the Ilford-Elmo C300 camera could use regular 8mm, super 8mm, or single 8mm film stock! Just incredible! Where has this equipment been hiding?

Good points raised there Paul, certainly, I, for one, have never seen either!

The Elmo C300 camera occasionally pops up on Ebay. It uses three interchangeable film backs for each of the formats it can utilize.
It was introduced I believe in 1966.
