What is you favourite Super 8mm Camera? This isn't based on technical prowess or anything like that, this is about looking at cameras in a more innocent way, which one do you think looks best?

It can be Super 8, Single 8, or Reg 8, but please state.

MOI: Beaulieu 1028 XL60 (Super8).


Bestest regardies...

Nizo Pro, Beaulieu 4008 or Canon 1014XL-S (and maybe the Bolex Macrozoom 160). All great looking and functioning cameras.
The "Beaulieu" 1028 XL60 is not really on the same level in terms of design or functionality, but each to their own. :P

Oh, I love it, that nice functional design, twinned with a nice mixture of black and mid grey, *GURGLE*.

And I also love the Technicolor Mark Ten (Super 8). :D

I think the Chinons may be the most groovy looking S8 cameras.

For the look definitely the Bolex 150, 155 and 160

maybe out of some stupid patriotic feelings towards swiss design :D :D :D

cheers, Bernhard

Hello!

I love the finish of the "Beulieu 4008 ZM X" - its a wonderful design made for eternity ;-)
I'd like the BAUER Concept too, but the Beulieus are different...

greetings,
André

Oh I really can't stand those damn 4008s, crappy French design, unreliable, heavy, finnickey...

Which is weird, because the Beaulieu 6008 is one of my favourite cameras of all time, one of them twinned with a Angeneuix 6-90 and it's time to take out the trash.

Big stuff: The Elmo 1012
Small or amatuerish: Canon 310 and the Kodak M-series, Russian cameras such as the Aurora's are nice too

Being a camera collector I have tried several. A camera needs to be reliable, easy to use and not too bulky to carry around.
Nikon R10 is way too heavy, only suitable for tripod shooting. I might be unlucky but the Beaulieu 6008 seems useless as soundcamera, its noicy and the batteries runs down quickly so film speed gets inaccurate.
Works much better as a silent film camera but unneccesaily large.
The 5008 gives a nice metal feeling but i haven't used one.
Canons 1014, both the silent and the sound versions are true beauties, and reliable. When travelling though I'll bring my Canon 310 XLS and/or Eumig nautica. Both gives very nice quality pictures at their pricerange.

Design by Agfa, the Movexoom 4000 looks like a shotgun in Star Wars! , and the Bolex mentioned above is an oddity, but nice. Slim design is to be found on the Agfa Movexoom 10 and all Nizos, very nice cameras to handle.
Finally the gem to just look at is the Minolta D10 in red velvet lined case, with the add ons beside, wow!!!

Super 8: Canon 1014XL-S
Double super 8: Bolex H8 Rex DS8 converted

If the Canon 814XLe has 24 fps, would be my ideal.

Cheers!
