Leitz 16mm movie Projector

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)



Has anyone ever seen the Leitz G1 movie projector?  I have Leitz brochures that show it was available from around 1953 to 1959.  I wonder if Leitz made it, or contracted it out to someone else.  This was the smaller of two projectors, the H1 model was for large theaters.  I have tried to attach a photo of the G1.

Could it be related to THIS Company ?



I seem to remember that it had been sold to AEG... but don't remember if was a prewar or postwar story... the 16mm projektor,as you say, is clearly postwar... while the "Mechau" are much older...

Wonderful pictures of the G1 projector.  Attached is a photo of the H3 projector of similar mid 1950's vintage. The H3 is iluminated by carbon arc, with 7 times the brightness  of the G1.  The film mechanism and lens are the same as the G1.

With the Kinowerks logo having the GMBH marking, would this not be after 1952 or so and thus parallel to the vintage of these projectors?

      Hello there. I work in a biological lab in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Our lab is pretty old, so we have found these old glass slides and we were wondering exactly how old can they be. It says "Ernst Leitz, Berlin. Mikroscope & Laboratoriumsbedarf. N.W. 6 Luisen-Str. 45". I think if somebody knows until which year the Ernst Leitz GmbH was located at this adress, we could determine the minimal age of this relic.

      Leica lens in very good condition, clean and clear. 90mm 2.0 Summicron-M, 
      It comes with both caps and a built-in lens hood.
      The lens takes sharp and clear pictures. 
      The 2.0 setting provides beautiful Bokeh and allows you to shoot in low light.
      I have used this lens on my Leica M6 and on the  Sony A7Rll with an adaptor and got excellent results. The lens has the Leica 6 dot ASPH monitoring system in place
      Out of US Shipping charges will be added to the sales price.otherwise, the price includes shipping charges in the US
