I had the privilage back in the 70s to buy a brand new cine camera, and like you would today be assured it was good to use out of the box but nowa days we are all having to buy a camera that could be as old as 30 years or older. My question is what are the things to look out for when buying second, third or even fourth hand cine cameras? Im talking here about 8mm decent quality cameras.
I know you would only know for sure that a camera is good when you have put a film through it and looked at the results but what would you test within the camera before going to the expense of buying and proccesing a film.
