This uses a 16mm magazine which holds 50 feet of double perf 16mm film. Only source I know of is here:

I've got one of those, single lens version. It's the springwound consumer version of the GSAP gun camera used in fighter planes in WW2. As stated it takes the 50' Kodak magazines which work, eh, pretty well. Sometimes you run into a clunker or a poorly feeding filmpath. The magazine is home reloadable and accepts dual perf film only, as it uses both sets of sprocket holes, one for film advance and the other for pulldown claw. Mine accepts "C" mount lenses and the resultant image stability can be as good as from a Filmo, which is quite acceptable. The camera is cheap & rugged; I've gone ice skating with it; you could rig it as a skateboard cam or helmet cam.
