Super 8 Camera In Search Of A Good Home
By James Grahame
I don't usually mention my own eBay auctions, but I thought you'd like a chance to check out a few pics of my Beaulieu 4008 ZMII Super 8 camera before she sells. The French-made 4008 is one of my two favorite Super 8 cameras (the Canon 814 XL-S is the other). The 4008 was introduced in the early 1970s with several semi-pro features including a stunning Schneider Kreuznach interchangeable lens and manual film speed adjustment, which comes in incredibly handy when using modern high speed negative film.
However, I'm not ashamed to admit the real reason I love this thing is that it looks like the kind of device Flash Gordon would pack to kick Ming the Merciless into the next solar system.
Update: My camera is sold, but here's a link to some similar models on eBay...
