No Eivind. This one was stored in an office nearby Filmhuset in Oslo. I believe that Inge still have one in his apartment.

My dad bought me my first projector ,a Me-Opta Optilux and a few films in 1961 when I was 10. Buying the usual Laurel & Hardys and Chaplins and Abbott and Costellos occupied my interest for the next 10, or so,years. I began collecting in earnest in 1972 when Walton issued the first Tom and Jerrrys,in color and sound of course! I bought the first batch of eight,plus an Eumig 810 HQS with external speaker and a screen,and have never stopped since. Today I have nearly 4.000 titles, from trailers to features and serials. Despite this number,I do buy selectively,(believe me!), practically always knowing what I am buying. I also have about 15 projectors.The only thing I am still lacking is a cinemascope screen which I must install soon, so I won't have to hang bedsheets on the wall when I want to see my widescreen films!

It'd be nice to see some of those 4000 titles as a few screenshots here one day Panayotis.

A few of the machines you use wouldn't go a miss either.


15 projectors, I'd definitely be kicked out onto the streets! Ha ha

I picked up my first projector (Chinnon 7500) on my 18th Birthday (1978), as I had to be 18 to get the old Hire Purchase agreement (even then Dad had to sign as guarantor, ah...those were the days!), I then started to buy bits and pieces, but mostly for the first couple of years I hired films most week from Perry's Movies when they were in their Wimbledon shop, it took me over an hour by tube each way from where I lived in Tottenham. But this has served me well over the years, as I got to see some of the well known features, pretty soon after release, as Perry's used to add new releases pretty soon into their hire catalogue, which has served me well, as once I became a dealer, I still have a strong feeling of what a lot of those earlier releases should look and sound like. I've had a few projectors in my time, but one of the best was the Fujiscope SH 30, what a lovely machine, it was only mono, but has a swing out gate, a lovely fast lens, 1200' capacity, and optical playback, if you can find a good one, it is well worth forking out for one, unfortunately my one had speedboard troubles, and the speed was varying too much, so I passed it onto someone who thought he could sort it out, I wonder if he ever did!

I am glad you bought that projector in 1978, otherwise I would not have watched some films last night which I bought from you I guess :-) I will write about them later. That Derann short from my second last deal with you was fantastic! Glad to have you here in the forum!

Yes, please try! You don't need super quality screenshots for us to enjoy it! I'd love to see it!

I still find it easiest, if you got a camera that do video, just film the screen for the parts you'd like to share, get the files onto the computer and use a free program called VLC
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

There you can see the film, step forward, backward until you find a decent looking still and take a screen capture (do not remember the key, but it's in the menus)

Good luck, hope you give it a go, we love to see

I like it as you just let the camera do the work while our own viewing enjoyment of the screening remains unaffected.

Thanks for the kind reply Panayotis but if your digital camera does capture video as most do now, please do give it a go.
You must have many wonderful titles among your vast collection that would bring an enormous amount of pleasure to many collectors here.

I never thought of that method of a screenshot, that's brilliant! I tried to take some shots last night, and they all kept coming out blurry!
