I have some real classic Pathescope 9.5mm films in my collection such as Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS and THE WHITE HELL OF PITZ PALU directed by G.W.Pabst and Arnold Fank featuring the great Leni Riefenstahl . Whats your cherished 9.5mm films ?
I have only two 9,5 mm prints in my collection. Both Mickey Mouse b/w silent cutdowns. And a Austrian Diethmar ? projector for 8 and 9,5 mm. 9,5 did never get popular in Sweden. I just bought this stuff of curiosity.
It´s suposed to, but I havn´t tested it. It´s set for 110 volts. I have transformators, so one day I´ll check it. The cosmetic condition is quite good. I´ve heard this is a rare one. They built more 9,5/16 and 8/16 projectors.
Still haven't checked my machine. A Specto which I got three or four films with. Some news reels and such I think
Hopefully I get it tested properly someday. I do still want a CIR for it though
Here´s som pics of my Ditmar 2890. It´s a very rare one in really good cosmetical condition, with original box ( Cover missing ). I haven´t dared to try it yet. I have no manual unfortunately.
It have two filmpaths, so it can project both 8mm and 9,5.
Thank you Robert!
Interesting reading. Will read carefuly, when I have time. My projector seems to be in better condition. The former owner used it for 8mm screening, not so long ago, but I will check the power wires, before use.
