Canon Super 8 Auto Zoom 1218 Cine Film Camera. It's in good condition.
I tried taking a lot of pictures of it. Don't have the 1.3v batteries or Super 8 Film to test. Found in an abandoned storage locker with other vintage cameras. This thing was marketed in April of 1968, so it's SUPER old.
More and more families were enjoying TV around this time. This required lenses for TV cameras to have higher zooming ratios for more powerful zooming and close-up effects. Canon also developed high-zoom TV lenses and started development of a 12x zoom lens to introduce the attractiveness of high magnification zooming to the home movie world. Automatic design using a computer reached the level for actual design work around this time, and Canon used it for the first time for development of this lens.
This new technology could achieve a compact and comparatively affordable 12x f/1.8 zoom lens with 19 elements in 13 groups for 8mm movie cameras. A "multi-layer coating" was applied for the first time on an 8mm movie lens, and it could supply high-contrast images. The body was based on the Zoom 518, but two AA batteries and a mercury cell compartment were added at the side of the die-cast exterior.
A detachable grip was also available. Super 8 type 8mm movie camera.
