Canon Reflex Zoom 8-3 8mm Vintage Cine Camera

Sold out

Estimated Shipping Widget will be displayed here! (with custom color)

Canon itself broke the record it set with its 4x zoom lens by developing this 5x model while making the total length of the lens 5 mm shorter. The accuracy of the CdS exposure meter, first applied in the previous model, was improved, and the design was renewed, including a white alumite finished lens barrel. This new design looked unbalanced at the beginning, but later it was recognized as an ideal new design that solidified the prestige of “Canon with zoom” by becoming a best seller.
