I don't understand why you'd want one of these cameras. They are Beaulieus only in name and there are so many other great cameras out there with similar and better features and lenses (probably for less money too as people seem to pay for the "Beaulieu" name and the rarity of these cameras).

But the top of the range (Chinon) "Beaulieu" was probably the 1028 XL 60 or 1068 XLS both of which accepted the 60m cartridge (as well as the standard 15m).

er... Yes.... As long as it's a Super 8 film cartridge. Not Single 8. Not 'Regular 8' also known as 'Standard 8'.

If you mean 'Can they read the new super 8 film stocks with all the different film speeds'...

It depends which model you've got... Super 8 wiki's got 155 different Cinon models listed.
