I was wondering just out of interest what are the widest angle lenses avalable for 8mm projectors.I know some zoom lenses go down to 11mm.I found an isco-gottingen 10mm fixed which fits my eumig & noris projectors perfect and produces a huge picture.This is the widest i have heard of, are there any even wider ?.

There was also an adapter lens the "Spacial sideral attachment for 8mm cine". This was a large lens (50mm)lens of a great negative dioptre value in a mount that was designed to screw into the front of the projector lens.
I haven't got any lens it will fit like that but it does provide a rather larger picture if you can adjust the projector lens enough to get the picture in focus.

I have the 10mm isco lens Jason,very good it is too.I have always liked the idea of fixed focal length projection lenses on quality grounds. Bauer did a sound projector with in built screen,that had a 7mm lens I think,now that would go big!
