Another Mini projector! The first was a Hanimex, made in Australia, and now this Minolta from Japan- both made in same time period. The projector is tiny but with the push of a metal button it folds out to form a projector with a suitable focal length; what a marvel of 50s engineering
The Mini comes with its own funky white vinyl bag [black piping, metal zip, internal compartments for all the bits] a dual slide changer AND an ‘Autochanger’ and is excellent working condition. The Autochanger allows you to stack a number of 35mm slides on both sides so one needed hold up the slide-show too long.
The lens is 1:2.5, f=7.5mm, and it runs on 200-240 V, AC/DC. The current bulb is still working, and I have researched replacement bulbs: a $10 CDS 100 watt, 115-120 volt bulb will suffice. There’s a cute little bakelite on/off switch on the electrical cord.
The mini projector makes a beautiful vintage statement piece- and the funky vinyl bag is a bonus extra. [Display the projector, wear the bag!]
