8mm Viewers and Editing Equipment
Before computer editing and digital film-making, movies had to be edited by hand using machines like these to physically splice, or cut and tape the film... hence the term "ending up on the cutting room floor" was coined.
Hanimex E-400 Dual 8mm Editor
Film viewing and editing was a time consuming and exacting process. The Hanimex is one of the larger viewing screens I own. It will accept 400' rolls of 8 or Super 8 film. Unlike the more professional models these units were hand cranked for precision.
Vernon 101 8mm and Super 8 movie Viewer/Editor
This all metal editor features the "Dual Optical System". It is compatible with Super 8, Single 8, and Regular 8 Films! It has geared motion for rewinding, fine frame adjustment and a frame notcher for editing.
This model was Made In Japan.
Baia Dual 8 Reviewer
This plastic manual model made in the USA has a switch to mark where you cut and splice the film and like the others handled 8mm and Super 8 film.
Enmig and Ohnar Film Splicers
These were simple tools used to hold the 8mm film in place
as you cut and spliced or glued on the new section.
The Enmig was made in Austria and the Ohnar in Japan.
