Canon Auto Zoom 814 Super 8 Vintage Cine Camera

by Canon
Sold out

The Super 8 system had a film pressure plate inside the cartridge, which was unsuitable for high-end cameras. At the beginning, Eastman Kodak did not guarantee a fast lens speed, such as f/1.4. This model was developed to achieve a high-end camera for the Super 8 system. At the beginning, a 6x zoom lens was planned to be attached to this model, but Canon cleared numerous technological hurdles to apply higher magnification with a high-speed zoom lens.

These hurdles included a film-driving technology within the allowance of depth of field by a fast f/1.4 lens, focusing and color reproduction for the Super 8 system, which had mainly tungsten films that always required CCA filters during the daytime. Finally, the Auto Zoom 814 Super 8, which had the world first 8x f/1.4 zoom lens, was introduced to the market.
