£1299 for a rather stupid piece of video equipment masquerading as a film projector. Probably for a person who has everything and needs a talking point for visitors. Count me out.

A funny detail is the last picture at the offer: the shadow of the girl standing in front of the screen can not be made by the projection of the offered machine. The angle makes no sense.

Itís cool looking but it looks like a camera with reels/spools attached. At least they are not taking real projectors and turning them into video units....although there are a lot of them at flea markets and in closets.

It is a bizarre thing and I wouldn't want one but I thought it was worth posting. The oddest part is perhaps the text which is obviously a poor translation from Chinese. The description of the '1895' screening of the famous 'train leaving the station' film has a way too graphic description of how the train might affect the audience. Weird.

OK it's not perfect but I'm sure an enterprising Forum member will find a way to make some modifications, turning it into the world's first dual gauge video + 8mm projector!

Well it's a weird machine, looks like a camera on one side and more like a projector on the other. If you have to do this sort of thing, the 're-gutting' of a real cine projector would be much more authentic. Something big enough to house a small high quality video projector. Maybe an Elmo GS1200 with a small Epson inside? At least the outside would be very impressive!
