A neat Eumig R2000 projector.  Completely self contained, projects the movie onto the screen.  The auto-threading feature works nicely.  This was projecting until the bulb burned out during testing.  Takes a Halogen 12V/100W dichroic bulb.  Comes in the original box, box is rough.  Has the manual also.  Nice overall.  Foyer/100118 – SBC/S We sell mostly […]

The Eumig company produced many high quality, reliable cine projectors but probably their most famous model was the classic P8 unit. The model featured in this article, the Eumig P8m, was an upgrade to the original unit, and was probably made in the mid to late 1950s. Eumig P8m Images My Eumig P8m 8mm Silent […]

Nick Dawson, the Southend-on-Sea-based musician by the name of Eumig, returns to Courier (stylised ‘cou ri er’) with his latest EP, ‘Distant Spring’. The EP bubbles to life, unfolding a grandiose haze of effects-drenched synthesized drones and evolving sonic textures. ‘Distant Spring Part 1’ is one of those tracks that seems to climb and climb; […]

Things I find in the garbage

The film ZULU starring Stanley Baker and Michael Caine was one of the biggest box-office hits of all time in England. It premiered in 1964 and for the next twelve years it remained in constant cinema circulation before making its first appearance on television. It has since become a Bank holiday television perennial, and remains […]

This is a descriptive post on the Eumig Electric 8 cine camera which was produced by Eumig in Austria in the late 1950s. It is an electrically operated, 8mm home movie camera and is a step above the mechanical, clockwork models used by many home movie enthusiasts at the time, and therefore had a slightly […]

This is the first part of a series which may take several months to complete, but which I hope will eventually describe the process I’ve used to build an 8mm telecine machine from an old Eumig dual format projector. The driver for doing this is the failure of the Winait machine which I bought in […]
