Sankyo Stereo 800 - Super 8mm Sound Cine Projector
Not only are decent quality projectors getting harder to come by these days, but to come across a flagship projector that is in immaculate condition with positive signs of virtually no use . . . well that's even harder.
Here at ES Photographics, we are more than particular about the quality of second hand cine projectors, which is why we don't sell that many because they are not easy to be found. But when we do find one, that's an entirely different story.
This Sankyo 800 is simply beautiful and even the plastic coverings are still intact over the front badge, rear in/out sockets and the main description panel. The rubber feet have no scuff marks, as it clearly has hardly been used, and the lens is pristine. There is no crackle from the volume & tone knobs and the soundhead probes (and respective soundhead pressers) have absolutely no sign of wear or even oxide dust from the playing of films. The main white plastic fan doesn't even have signs of dust which is a main giveaway to it's lack of use.
Film threading is flawless and never misses a beat (of course you need a good condition leader) and the light on the screen is very bright due to the 15v 150w lamp.
The projector has been thoroughly tested by projecting a handful of films both in forward and reverse running and the rewind works perfectly also.
It comes complete with the original 800ft take up spool and the microphone. Full specifications can be found below:
