Abstract

An electrophotographic printing machine in which a transpar-ency or an opaque original document is reproduced. In repro-ducing a transparency, mirror 34 is pivoted into the path of the transparency light image. When an opaque original docu-inent is being reproduced, mirror 34 is pivoted to a position remote from the transparency light image path. The optical system of the electrophotographic printing machine employs a projector 20 having a light source 22 for illuminating trans-parency 18 disposed therein. Lens 24 forms a light image and projects it onto mirror 34. Arm 28 has mirror 34 secured rotatably on end portion 32 thereof. End portion 30 of arm 28
