Hello forum! 

I recently came across a video on youtube and really liked the texture of the film...It seemed to be taken with the camera down below(with standard 8mm film I believe? not quite sure). Does anyone recognize what camera it is? Thanks in advance!

It is unexposed super-8 film on the table. Odd while this belongs in a cassette and there is no purpose in yanking it out as this ruins it.

 

The camera is a Canon Scoopic. Likely for Super-8

From the perf shape it looks more like 16mm to me.

The Canon Scoopic was a 16 mm, or a Double-Super-8 camera (DS8 uses no cartridge for the film, just spool, and gives Super8 film as a result).

Definitely 16mm and not 8mm, super 8 or ds8. If it were DS8 film it would be perforated on both sides.

Scoopics are great 1st 16mm cameras. Not the steadiest camera out there but they are the easiest motion picture film cameras to load & operate on the planet (except Super 8), the lens is not interchangeable but is amazing and the autoexposure is great for someone coming from Super 8 or video.
