I was wondering if any members had any experience of this projector, it always seemed to elude me, but by all accounts
it was dependable.
Yes Hugh, I had one from new from Perry's Movies back in the day, it worked well, 800' capacity, a swing down lens, but I was dissapointed with the sound output, there just seemed to be no "Umph" in it, if you know what I mean. I perservered for a year or so until I bought a Chinon SS1200.
Thanks Barry, you're the only person I know that has experience of one, years ago in FFTC, a chap from Workington was selling two
of them, it was only up the road from where I lived at the time, by the time I rang him, both had been sold! Maybe the low sound would have benefitted from a little external amp. Still that's a point I didn't know, cheers Barry.
Lee Mannering is a big Noris fan Hugh, he'd be able to tell you more.
They were supposed to very good in the era they were produced but had weaknesses in the longevity department I believe. (Dont we all! Lol)
The best feature of these was the rear sprung gate and fast pull down claw mimicking the Beaulieu on both counts.
This was said to bring about the brightest image of any 12v 100w machine!
Also decent Schneider lenses were fitted I believe.
I always thought it strange that even the later top of the range Stereo 800ft model still had only the 100w lamp fitted to it.
There does not appear to be too many of these around now that still work as they should.
The Noris 410 was not the best of the range, it was very plastic and made to a price, the earlier models are better built, it suffers as most Noris projectors do with speed regulator faults and slightly unsteady image at 24fps, careful adjustment of the claw tension can help the latter, most of the Noris are nice looking machines and run very quiet, Andrew is correct they only ever used 100watt lamps, I have converted one of mine to take a 150watt lamp as there is plenty of room inside for an extra transformer, while obviously brighter the difference is not striking.

As I mentioned before elsewhere on here, in a test Movie Maker gave them a slightly higher rating than Eumig, but as Andrew has pointed out before, it's only over the long term, that you discover any faults. It was a Schneider lens that was used with a Noris at Pinewood, where I saw Super 8 on a full sized screen.
