Standard 8mm EUMIG model ELECTRIC R Movie Camera

It takes 16mm film which is “cut in two” after processing in the lab – into 8mm format. This particular format was first introduced by Kodak in 1932 after “The Great Crash” as a cheaper alternative to 16mm. It is also known as “double-8”. It has an internal “EUGON” lens with a focal length of 12.5mm at an aperture width of f-2.7.A 'turret' with 5 ‘mounts’ fits onto the front. The first has a wide-angle adaptor listed as w. 0.5x, which transforms the 12.5mm into a wide-angle 6mm when placed over the lens. There is also a telephoto adaptor which doubles the focal distance to 25mm and is listed as T.2x. The ‘mount’, in addition to the two adaptors, also has two 'Lupas (magnifying glasses)', which fit over the camera’s viewfinder, changing the frame to match the wide-angle or telephoto adaptor accordingly. Finally, in the last position in the “mount” of the turret, there is a filter for the 12.5mm lens which comes with the camera. This camera, produced in the 1950s, was geared to the amateur filmmaker.
