Dear list,

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend places in the US (ideally NY or
LA) to buy 25mm wide angle lenses for an Eiki 16mm projector?


One of the things you can do as a cheap fix is to find a good Elmo super 8
lens and use it in place of the regular 16mm. It gives a wider throw and
is sharper, too. Many of them will slip right in with little modification.
