Birdie Type II projector

Fuji Birdie Type II projector, 1950sFuji Birdie Type II projector
made in Japan, 1950s

I’ve collected a number of mini projectors – where the 35mm slide projector folds up or compacts into a tiny space for ease of transport – and surprise! – here’s another.

The Birdie projectors are as small as is possible: hence the name. It’s all metal construction though- so it’s not lightweight; even the cover is metal. The on-off switch and the plug are bakelite; and the switch presents as a marketing opportunity as it sports ‘Fuji Film’ in raised letters.

The projector shows some wear to the base- it’s had a good life showing holiday snaps by the thousands; but is in excellent working order and has been checked by an electrician.

The Birdie Type II is for sale: $AU135
