NOTES & Comments(from bolexcollector.com):

The Bolex 18-5 projected 8mm film at fixed running speeds of 18 and 5 frames per second in forward motion, and 18 fps in reverse; 18 fps forward and reverse with the lamp switched off was also possible.

Slow motion projection at 5 fps was an exclusive feature to the 18-5, made possible by a variable shutter blade. At this speed, a typical three-bladed shutter would produce a noticeable flicker and increase the risk of film burn.

However, Bolex solved this problem by designing a three-bladed shutter that expanded to nine blades when the speed was set to 5 fps; flicker and risk of film burn were eliminated, although picture brightness was slightly reduced.

Aremovablelid, built-in carrying handle, folding reel arms and small size made this projector easy to transport. A plastic cover and an aluminum 400ft reel were included with this model (both with Bolex logo); larger carrying cases with room for accessories could be purchased separately.

Please examine the photos as they are intended to add to the description.
