great camera when properly serviced but the standard lenses arent quite good at wide open.

very under rated camera,

beware of worn rechargeable batteries,
usually expencivee replacement.

And potentially explosive.Had a close call with a Beaulieu 2008 battery.The camera is very much like the Beaulieu R 16,which I loved for handheld.The one I used was a tad noisy, I recall having to post dub dialogue,which was a bit painstaking in super 8.
