Anyone know where I can download super 8 camera service manuals? They seem to be as scarce as hens teeth.

I have the same trouble. If its Canon cameras they used to be available but OTC told me Canon wasn't allowing them to sell them anymore so I got in contact with Canon UK and they took my request up and own the chain nd came back and said it was no longer policy to release this sort of copyright material.

 

Other manufacturers I don't have any experience of except if its Bolex you can get their H8/H16 service manuals but I haven't tried the macrozooms yet.

 

Please, if you find a source let me know, please.

 

Good luck.

That is amazing that they even care about an old product that they abandoned almost 30 years ago. If I come across any on my travels across the net I will upload them to any free download site.

If they're not releasing material they possess, they obviously don't care about the product.

Bolex manuals are still about. I've been searching for the Canon ones for about six months now. I don't know what its like for other camera makes. I'm sure the Canon manuals are around somewhere.

There was a Japanese site (I can no longer find on-line) that had links to a Canon 1014 / 814 XL-S service manual.

I've seen both Eumig and Eumig manufactured but Bolex branded service manuals for various Super 8 cameras.

 

There have been quite a few service manuals about for various H16 Bolex models.

 

 

I would love a service manual for the Sankyo XL-620, 420, 320 range.
