How much camera noise does the Beaulieu 4008 create?

And what about blimping. Does it suffice to have a blimp around the body of the camera, without any cover over the lens? Or is it as with the Arri BL, that you have to use a blimp around the lens also?

As far as I know no Super 8 cameras were made that were internally blimped or sound dampened. You can quiet a camera down by throwing a leather jacket over it, or you can build a custom blimp for one, but you'll lose the portablility which is the S8 camera's strong suit. Also remember that 30 year old cameras are noisier now than when new; if you're concerned about your unit and wish to make it quieter, send it in for an overhaul.

My 4008 is not set up for sound sync, but I know someone who has one that is and it holds sync....
