Tested and fully working, in great working condition. This is a very, very rare early version from the first year of production (serial number 8004, circa 1935).

It has the rarely seen leather embossed logo. It's been converted to take modern single-perforated film. Motor - runs well at all film speeds. Body - in good condition, some light scratching.

Other features - all tested and working well. OVERALL DIMENSIONS: 8 1/2" x 6" x 3. WEIGHT: Approximately 5 1/2 lbs (without lenses). OUTER CASE: Highly polished duraluminium body, covered in genuine Morocco leather. FILM CAPACITY: 100ft (30m) and 50ft (15m) daylight loading spools of 16mm film.

THREADING: Automatic threading and loop forming. The end of the film is simply placed in a channel leading to the feed sprocket. The release is pressed and the film is then automatically threaded throughout the entire mechanism. MOTOR: Constant speed, spring motor mechanism; governor controlled. Large winding handle folds downward and attaches to camera when not in use.

8:1 external drive shaft permits the attachment of an electric motor. TURRET: Rotating turret accommodates three interchangeable C mount lenses. The top position allows for critical focusing through a groundglass screen on later versions of this model. VIEWFINDER: accessory Tri Focal viewfinder gives an exact viewing field for lenses of 3 focal lengths. Later versions of this model had a built-in critical focus viewer with optional cupped eyepiece. VARIABLE SPEED: 8, 16, 24, 32 and 64 frames per second with the ability to change speeds while the camera is running. RELEASE BUTTON: provides for the making of continuous exposures by a finger-tip release on the front of the camera. A side release allows for locked, hands-free running or single frame exposures. SHUTTER: 190 degree disc shutter, operates at 118/1000 of an inch from emulsion side of film with an exposure rate of 1/30 second at 16 fps. This mechanism may be disengaged, if desired, by simply moving a lever. FRAME COUNTER: An accessory frame counter could be attached to the motor crank shaft. Two separate counters registered increments of single frames and 50 frames as the film progressed. SINGLE FRAME: Time lapse and animation is possible by using the side release button or an accessory cable release and adapter; I-T lever allows for timed or instantaneous single exposures. MANUAL REWIND: Clutch disengages spring motor and permits forward movement and backwind without running down the spring; allows for dissolves and superimposition.
