Hanimex ‘Mini’ folding slide projector

ClosedHanimex ‘Mini’ folding slide projector
made in Sydney, Australia c.1950s

This neat little projector folds out to show slides in both 16mm and 35mm slide formats. It has a P-Rokkor 2.5/40mm lens and uses a 75watt lamp; I have it on good authority that replacement lamps are still available. The projector works a treat – it’s been checked over by an electrician – and has an ‘automatic’ slide feed to allow you to load two slides at a time [!!] It comes in its original box, which sadly has been mended with masking tape.

Perfect for your next slide night or to add to your burgeoning Hanimex collection. I am reluctantly parting this projector- it’s a beautiful as well as a functional object.

For sale: $AUD145

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
