60s slide projector

Hanimex Hanorama '300' slide projectorHanimex Hanorama ‘300’ slide projector
made in Australia c.1966

When I started this blog [two years ago] I had some Hanimex slide viewers [see post, way, way below.] I love slide viewers because my father was a photographer and lots of my childhood – and indeed other people’s childhoods and landscapes and tourist shots- were recorded on slides. We’d have slide nights at home where slide after slide was projected onto a white wall, accompanied by beer and chips. What larks!

Ok, back to my point. Since I started this blog – with the intention of showcasing my collection and trying to sell some of it- I have had to- HAD to – buy slide projectors. They just came to me. I am a slide projector MAGNET. I now have ten. In perfect, slide-projecting, order. This is number six. Isn’t she a beauty?

Lens: f=2.8/ 85mm. Lamp: 300 W, BA 15S short envelope lamp; still available today. Even if you never intend to use the projector it looks great as a display piece- with a fantastic 60s modernist vibe.

And for some reason, like all my other projectors, it comes with a Kodachrome slide from its last owners.

made in Australia 1970

This has to be my last slide projector [6 posted thus far] – I have to learn to pass a projector and not purchase it. I need a 10-step program!

This lovely, boxy projector comes with its original warranty card – which notes that it was purchased in March 1971- and its original box. It also has the funky Hanimex ‘seal’ seen in the image, which boasts ‘Hanimex Unconditionally Guaranteed.’ It has been tested by an electrician the fan and globe are functioning perfectly.

The projector’s body is injection moulded plastic and sheet steel. It takes a 300W halogen bulb, and has three separate lenses. They knew how to build ‘em in the 70s! Together with the funky font labels, this projector is as lovely to look at as it is functional. And yes! It comes with some Ektachrome slides from the last owner.
