Russian film production insdustry use of 70 mm films, not 65 mm.
Possible, this is 70 mm camera ?
You can send me pictires or ebuy number.
This can be Russian Konvas-SH camera with 200 ft film magazines.

IIRC, this particular camera was an "Ostcam" that had been converted to 65mm and Bell&Howell perfs.
Did it show up again, or what's your special interest in it, if I may ask? :)

I don't have for sell, but, i have information about Konvas SH and other 70 mm russian cameras.
But, 70 mm film not manufacturing more.
Konvas-SH modify on 65 mm film complex procedure.
