Canon 310XL Super 8 Vintage Cine Camera

by Canon
Sold out

The Canon 310XL was a sister model of the 514XL developed at the same time. Both models shared the same body base. To reduce its costs, this model applied given an external metering system, and the self-timer function was omitted. The major feature of this model was its world’s fastest lens speed (at the time) of f/1.0, with a 3x zoom. Macro shooting was possible as close as 215 mm from the film plane mark if the zooming lever was set at “Macro.”

XL (existing light) cameras are just a little different from normal super 8 cameras, XL means the camera has a wider shutter angle opening when exposing the film than a standard super 8 camera does. The XL cameras are designed to work better in low light situations than non XL super 8 cameras.
