Anybody know the model number? How feasible is it to shoot regular8 these days? What are the lenses like on this?

I believe this is the first or among the first of the series of Leicina cameras. It was followed by the Leicina Super and then the Super 8 model, the Leicina Special. Regular 8mm film and processing services are readily available (from John Schwind and Jesse Chambless, among others) and good quality 8mm projectors, such as the Bolex 18-5, and viewers for editing, such as the Zeiss Moviscop, are routinely listed at eBay. If you're considering this format, the Bolex amateur 8mm cameras - especially the P1, P2, and P3 Zoom Reflex models - are also worth considering. Since all or most of this stuff was made before plastics and electronics came into wide use, this equipment tends to be better built and more reliable than almost anything that followed.

I think it's the 2nd Leicina model.
the lens is an Angie. Can't recall the focal length. There was a retrozoom attachment.
Like most Angies it has a non-standard filter thread.
I recall it as giving a good image.

the thing below the lens is the light meter. no manual settings, but it's easy to ride the meter.

metal body. nice weight.
