I just purchased a Beaulieu 4008 ZMII and I got my first set of footage back and I love it, but I have a question as to exaclty what kinds of Lenses this camera will accept? I see listed on Ebay sometimes Lenses that are C-mount but they're usually listed for 16mm cameras...so... Will my Beaulieu 4008 ZMII super 8 camera accept all "C-Mount" lenses or just C-mount lenses made for Super 8 cameras? Did they make them just for Super 8 and Just for 16mm or are they made to be interchangeable?

what c-mount is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-mount

you can use c-mount lenses for 16mm on your 4008, just avoid the ones made for Bolex RX, normaly they have "RX" in the name.

most c-mount lenses for video cover super8, just watch out with short focals (8mm or less) they often reach far into the camera so they touch the shutter or the prisme...

cheers, Bernhard
