PAILLARD  BOLEX  18-5

This excellent projector raised the quality level again and set the standards for many years. The most peculiar feature is the slow speed of 5 fps which was said to be 'flickerless'. To this aim the rotating shutter multiplies its segments from 3 to 9. Unfortunately the loss of brightness is noticeable as well.

Launched in 1960

Several lenses were available: 15, 20, 25 mm and also a zoom 12,5 .. 25 mm

Highly efficient low voltage lamp 8V 50W

Frame rates: 18 and 5 fps

The type shown above allowed the optional use of a synchronizing device for sound movies (therefore three sprocket feeds instead of two on the standard type). Below a later version with automatic film feed.
