Minolta Autopak-8 D6 Super 8 movie camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Minolta Super 8 movie camera from the 1970s with an excellent 6x zoom lens (Rokkor F1.8 8.4-50mm consisting of 14 elements in 12 groups). It offers both lock exposure and backlight compensation. The motorized zoom has a really handy 'fast/slow' toggle to help you set the zooming speed. The viewfinder is bright and clear with a very easy-to-read f stop indicator.

The original case is included.

Condition notes
The camera was tested and its light meter were tested and they work great. We also verified the camera's true film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition with only minor wear (see photos). The included original case is in good condition except for the fact that some of its foam cushioning has been removed.
