Nice little promo included. But I'm not sure if this will backfire as the Eumig's fixed projection speeds mean that the transfers have an inherent flicker. Although the 'trashy super 8 look' is probably what the seller was looking for; it's possible that a buyer may not realise that the majority of the footage is shot with a video camera (as you can see when the cameraman's silhouette is visible)and only the very short grainy shots were obtained from the projector.

Hi to the 2 Johnies,

This must be an early 900 series Eumig Super 8 Sound Projectors.
We only see the 905 or later, here in Australia.

These were almost a Sprocketless machine but still retained the take up sprocket.
There was no Top sprocket on any of these 900's which had co-axial drive.

These are not just 2 speed machines.
The Speed on these is variable between the 2 limits,18 & 24fps. You can't really tell what speed you are actually playing, if you move away from these limits.

However it does give your capturing digital movie camera a range of speed to try & synchronise its shutter with. Some cameras can do it with these Eumigs OK.

These are a high quality Sound Projector & I collect the different versions.

The speed change on this range of machines is far better than on the previous (800 and before) Series machines. They used an "up and down" slider which was virtually impossible (and not recommended) to change speed whilst running. These later models have a similar 2 disc arrangement with a more compact motor and the speed change is effected with a front panel knob turning a lead-screw. Speed change during running is practicable with care, so fine control for transfer is usually possible.

Thanks for the info Frank, I didn't realise some sound Eumigs had a degree of variable speed. I had always thought it was 18 or 24fps and nothing else.
