After my granddad past away I given all of his AV equipment.
Old video, audio and photo kit.
His more modern stuff I sold and I kept the older items.
Due to the size and amount of some of the items I had to leave them at my dads and collect a bit, sort it out, collect some more and so on.
I've gone through it camera collection, sold all his digi kit but kept the Nikon and canon film units for my own use. I got 1 more 35mm film to use up then i'll send off all rolls. be a total of 6 rolls of 35mm film to develop.
The first trip to my dads I brought back the slides and projector. A total of 700 slides ranging from the 60s to the 00s. Nothing interesting really, just some pics of the family and loads of pics of bristol in the 60s to the 00s.
This trip brought back something a bit more interesting to share and its something I need some info and help on.
My dad does not mind what I do with this kit, so i'm going to keep whats interesting to me and flog/give away the rest.
I brought back this box of what I thought was full up of 8mm and Super 8mm films but it also has what I think is 8mm audio tape, 2 8mm handy cams and a slide viewer.
Here is some images.
First box with in the box had this in it. No idea on its value, if it works or any thing. I don't even know if I can still get super 8mm tape to test it out. Any information on any thing would be a great help.
Next item is another 8mm camera but a little bit more modern and it takes 8mm cartridges. Again, no idea about it working or if I can get the cartridges.
Apart from reels and reels of Audio and video tape with no markings on it there was a hand full with some writing on it.
2 seemed really interesting.
Is this Beatles Abbey Road Album
Ziggy Stardust album
And a Laurel & Hardy Movie
There is several movies about bristol Zoo from the 60s & 70s.
I will contact Bristol Zoo and see if its of any use to them.
I'm waiting on some parts to get this projector working
I need some help and advice on the audio tapes.
Does any know what sort of player I need to play the audio?
Also, check the folks lofts cause I don't mind having a faulty one and get it working, thats where the projector came from.
Thanks for reading.
