Here is a link in which the camera listed for the Russell Brand documentary is a Nizo. Was this seven year documentary shot on Super-8mm film?

Just found this link that confirms the Russell Brand Documentary had a significant amount of super-8 footage shot with a Nizo Super-8 camera and Zeiss lens.

I think all Nizos had Schneider-Kreuznach lenses. Maybe it was a modification?

Here's the actual quote from the second link I posted above...."But I also shot a whole lot of Super 8 film that's all over the film. I have a Nizo camera with a Zeiss lens that I adore. Lots of DIG! & "Join Us" were shot with that camera as well. I felt it was the perfect textured look for BRAND: A Second Coming, so I shot more Super 8 on this film than ever before. Russell liked the look of it too and always gave me a little more when I was shooting it too." - Ondi Timoner

I would rather think he just names a coolsounding expertise suggesting top optics brand :)

Or is briefly mistaken.

Dig was an excellent doc. There are some scenes, and behind the scenes where you can see the Nizo. Looks like a standard 481/561/801 ect
