( 9.5mm )

The 9.5mm movie film gauge, introduced in 1922 in France by Pathé-Baby, part of the then giant Pathé-Frères group,
was launched by Pathéscope in the UK the following year and was effectively the first home movie film size.

Here's that man again - Charles Pathé! He started it all!

After much research and testing, a replacement for those fragile reflex pellicules (lames)
has been produced - thinner and specially coated to give improved image.
Use your reflex viewfinder again !
If the 9.5mm or 16mm Pathé Webo M reflex camera is in otherwise good working order
the work can be carried out from £60 plus return carriage.
