Dual format: Can be switched from Super8 to Regular8 and back. Was followed by the sound models Eumig RS 2500 Instaprojection (extremely rare) and Eumig RS 3000 Instaprojection.

It's like a handy, semi-portable instant TV for Super8, making you independent of having to set up a projection screen in usual operation, but can be opened to project to a standard projection screen just like a standard projector, so it's basically two devices in one: A cine-film TV and a standard projector. Also, it's certainly better for a simple off-the-wall transfer than using a standard projection screen, piece of paper, or one of those tiny glass screens, but of course inferior to a professional telecine.

Caution: Lens shouldn't be touched during projection to a standard projection screen because of possibility of receiving an electric jolt due to poor isolation. Use the front knob to focus instead.
