Hello,

 

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I will be reading amongst the other posts to understand better the format and its possibilities, but for beginning I am wondering if a Super8 Camera exists that has a video out, for instantaneous screening of the observed?

 

I would also like such a camera to posses auto and manual focus modes and film speed adjustment. The Bolex 5120 has a 'Mon.' input jack, is this for the output of a video signal to a monitor?

 

Kieron.

That is a audio monitoring connector on your Bolex. No video out on any stock Super 8 cam prior to the last year of manufacture in 1982. New Danish Logmar Super 8 camera has SD video ouput built in and hinged LCD screen. Pin registeted. http://www.logmar.dk

After market video retro fits avaible for Nizo and Beaulieu Super 8 cameras by Jean-Louis Seguin. Please do your research on Super 8 fundamentals.

Very few Super-8 cameras ever had autofocus and they were awkward to focus manually. The technology simply hadn't developed. IIRC it used ultrasound and wasn't very effective, a far cry from today's blink of an eye.

However if you're determined here's one.
