My new beauty

#1 by Eivind Mork , Fri May 27, 2016 11:14 pm

Just got this new beauty in the house :-) It came in the original box, and the projector looks really nice!

I am so mad at myself right now for forgetting to bring a take up reel from the cabin. A new 1200' will arrive in a few days, though. But I tried the first few meters of a film, and it works great!

Hope it will serve you for years. No take up in the box?

Nope! No reel in the box. But I have got the soft cover and manual.

Congratulations on your purchase.
You have just bought the most "overated " projector ever.

Still I think you will like it very much.

Haha! I just waited for the first comment with opinions of the projector :-) There are many good projectors out there. I don't have much storage space at all. So the projector must have all the specifications I want. With better space I could just have several. It is expensive for sure, and I know it is not perfect. But after considering projectors for a while I ended up with this. I am not a GS 1200 worshipper defending it with my life. That would just be silly. I just think it was the best option for me and it is a big improvement from what I had. So to me it is a beauty! This goes to the cabin, and so the much smaller Eumig S810D can get back home. That is an improvement to me too as I didn't have a 8mm projector home :-)

I would have the Fumeo myself, if I found one with 1200' capacity, stereo sound and good lamp. They just do not appear that often. Only thing I dislike with the GS-1200 I have, is that it's picky. But then again, many of those prints I have problems with, works better after Film Renew. I think you have a great projector there. If you doubled the cost, you could and probably should have looked for a Fumeo

Whatever my opinion or anyone else's Eivind, there is no doubt whatsoever, that a well working GS 1200 is, electronically, the most sophisticated and versatile projector of any on the Super 8mm gauge. Well done my friend, enjoy!

Well done Eivind, as mentioned before, every good cinema should have a GS1200, I love mine to bits in fact the wife has mentioned filing for divorce and siting my Elmo as the third party

Do you mean for the GS mate, if so I have 7 spares so to speak, I have not long since put a new one in so hopefully with the film share with the other projectors it will last a while

The Philips ones, I have got one in the Sankyo and it's been great but the Bauer has it's original lamp from when I bought it so still have 14 spares of those

Yes Del, it was the 200w 24v ESC GS 1200 lamps I was referring to mate thanks.
Hopefully Paul will continue to stock these in the future.

It's good to know you have plenty for now at least! You've got at least 350 hours for now, so no panic whatsoever yet my friend in your household.

Congratulations Elvind, I'm pleased you have a much wanted machine, indeed I've been there, got the "T" shirt, my experiences
were not good, but I hope yours will be better and you get much pleasure from it.

Got a T-shirt? You mean having a Elmo T-shirt? Nowhere near such a thing :-) I like all my projectors, Elmo, Eumig and Bell & Howell. But this is the best spec'ed one. One of the things I look most forward to is a brighter light. I could have got that from other projectors as well.

"Got the T Shirt" as an expression in English language, simply means Hugh has been down that path already Eivind.

Oh Dear, sorry Elvind, didn't mean to confuse, it just means as Andrew said, a past experience, I hope you enjoy your
machine, happy trails, here I go again, an American expression meaning' hope everything is good for you'.

Thanks! We will see how it works when I get the take-up reel. I like that it seems to have had little use. I hope that helps for reliability. My parents have an old Eumig P8 from around 1970. It has been used quite much and have worked like a clock. Only lately the take-up reel has slowed down a bit and need a watchful eye. I like my Eumig S810D too, but there is no doubt that the P8 has been more reliable. I could have paid far less for an other GS 1200 but which had been used a lot more. I chose this one and hope I won't be disappointed. There are pluses and minuses for each projector. I still think this is the one that suits me best.

Plenty of people own one of these machines Eivind, so you amongst friends of the Elmo gs 1200. Yours is the mk1, as this has the lower loop former facing forward. This is one of the problems area's for this machine, but easily resolved. It wears grooves in the fixed half roller here which can scratch film. This can be changed for a moving style roller to counter act this. Yes the bloody lamp is in short supply, but now i hear that ian at inde 8 has these, can you confirm this Ian?, could do with a spare mate .

I'm currently doing some work on lighting and one part they want flood lights for the car park. Looking around there are some 50w and 100w LED lights that look to be single chip. If just the led part could be obtained for a test. I'll keep my eyes open.


I still love the smell of film in the morning
