Yet another rookie question...

I've been looking at many different cameras, and my head is spinning.

Any thoughts on Bauer cameras (model S709XL for example)?

Thanks.

If you're wanting to go Bauer, the best model is the S715XL mainly due to the superior lens.

That camera, along with the Canon 1014XL & 814XL, Beaulieu's, the Nikon R10 and Leicina's seem to be the most sought after. Nizo also is recommended, but I understand they break down a fair bit (could be wrong with that one).

Guys on here like Santo can give you some good ideas with some other cameras that won't be as expensive.

Hello again,

I've also been looking at various Beaulieau's, like the 4008 and 6008 as well. What is the issue with the Bauer 709 lens?

Thanks.

To be honest, I haven't seen anything with the 709's Neovaron lens...I do know however, that the 715's Angenieux lens is pretty much the kick-assiest of all the Super 8's ever made! Quite a few people say it produces the best images going.

It's got crazy zoom power 6-90 as well.

All in all, for the extra amount of money you;d spend, I'd reckon you wouldn't be sorry with the higher-end model.

Almost any elmo is an excellent choice for someone who is beginning in Super-8. And the top of the line Elmo's are good even for those already proficient with Super-8.

Okay, great input here. Will the Beaulieus accept primes?

Thanks again, folks!
