I have a beaulieu 4008ZM, I like it alot. I have heard that the ZM's are the best of the Beaulieu's, but I don't really know for sure because I've never shot with any other Beaulieu besides this one. But I would def recommend the 4008 series.

given up on 16mm then!!. Beaulieu 1008 is not a true beaulieu, made by chinon or bell and howell i think, seem to recall the optics are chinon glass. Buy it if its going cheap, there are better models out there for the same money. Every 1008 i have seen at uk camera fairs never work!! so test the camera thoroughly before purchase.

I haven't given up on 16mm, I just want to cover all format possibilities.

After substantial thinking, I have decided to start with one of these '' low-end '' cameras, wich one it the highest end of these cameras :

Beaulieu 1008 XL
Beaulieu 1018 SK 8
Beaulieu 1028 XL 60
Beaulieu 1068 XLS
