This is so neat. Super 8 is a format still favored by filmmakers, because of the unique grainy look, and the bright effects they create.
The camera mechanism is audible which indicates it is working, and you can see the camera zoom. I don't have any Super 8 film to test the quality of film produced but since all the controls are working I believe it would work great! This is a pre-owned item, but seems to be in excellent condition for a camera that is over 40 years old.
Heavy metal camera and projector. Camera comes with case. Selling this as is. Unsure of its technical ability but it sure would look amazing in your families home theatre if you choose not to buy some film and give it a go.
