YOU HAVE FOUND A 76 YEAR OLD PIECE OF HISTORY!
This is an early personal 8mm movie camera that is built like a tank! it weighs a pound and a half, and it's only 4" X 3.5" X 1.5".
The fold-up view finder (on the top of the camera) is in good working shape, and the metal tab that locks it down is still intact.
THIS CAMERA HAS AN ILEX UNIVAR f:5.6 LENS THAT IS SCRATCH-FREE AND CLEAR.
The winding key is present and the mechanism is in remarkable working condition. The shutter and film advance work freely and uniformly, but could still use a good cleaning and some TLC. The internal parts are free of corrosion, and all parts are functional, although I didn't actually shoot film with it.
This really is a nice addition to your collection. If you want to find out more about it, go to
Many of these Cine 8's traveled with WWII soldiers because they were compact and virtually indestructible!
This would also look good on a coffee table on on your desk or shelf at work.
There is no telling what this camera has seen in its lifetime!!!
