    what camera is he holding at the end of the video?

    That’s a beaulieu 4008 ZMII super 8. Pretty sexy little camera, eh?

  3. Cochise says:

    Very nice indeed. Looks extremely portable, how would you compare the images to a bolex?

  4. Frame Discreet says:

    If properly exposed with a sharp lens, the 4008 produces some fantastic images. Keep in mind that it is super 8 though, which is not nearly the resolution of a 16mm bolex (if you were referring to a 16mm not 8mm bolex).

    I have seen some 16mm cameras with cruddy lenses and poorly exposed images that look far worse than a super 8 image.

    Hand in hand, a good operator, with a good camera/lens will always give you images to love 🙂
