How rare is 28mm?

#1 by Vidar Olavesen , Sun Sep 27, 2015 4:47 pm

In the last meeting in Norsk Filmsamlerklubb a 4 frame 28mm was auctioned off. I think it went for 8 pounds or so. Are they that rare? Also 17.5mm CIR splicer went for about the same, I was considering this, but they kept talking about tapes (audio) unless I misunderstood completely

There was that Pathe 28mm projector that was sold on Ebay; I know they used it in China, and that's about all. I should think the 17.5mm splicer is rare.

I think this is a different one to what I saw before. Werbung: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-EARLY-...=p2047675.l2557

Didnt know CIR made a 17.5mm tape splicer. I wonder if thats original or a modified 16mm one.

I have a soft spot for vintage obsolete stuff. I would like a 28mm Projector and a 17.5mm one.
I cant help but subscribe to "lost causes".

The 17,5 mm CIR splicers where used for magnetic film., not cine film. The magnetic films where used for soundtracks when films where cut.

I understand that the "Perils of Pauline" silent serial was captured on 28mm, and transferred to 16mm & 9.5mm, otherwise it might have been lost.

Hi all. I collect 28mm films and projectors. It's getting harder and harder to find films and if you find one the prices are very high. 200 euro for a one-reel-film is not uncommon these days.
I also have some 17,5mm films, but the early version (one Biokam film and several Ernemann films).

Welcome to the forum Erwin, I gather this is a very rare gauge, best of luck in trying to find prints. Pinedene Films were a good
source of ancient stuff, but Wally is very infirm now and can't manhandle the boxes these days, but you could drop him a line, he
does call in help when needed.

Got some good films from Pinedene a gentleman, although quite a few years since I went his building at the back of the house was full of films.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Hi David, yes he was a nice man, I might hold the record for patience finding film, he had a print of "Deathline" in '93, much searching ensued, many calls, many purchases, many enquiries, it was only a few years ago he realised it had been taken and not returned, by this time I was losing interest and the will to live!
