Features f1.0/8.5-25.5mm power zoom lens with macro; ideal for low light filming.
The Canon 310XL is one of the all-time classic Super 8 cameras. This small and lightweight camera's incredibly fast F1.0 (!) lens is makes it an excellent choice for low-light/available light film-making. It's also very convenient that the camera (including its automatic exposure) is powered by two ordinary AA batteries (not included). It's also a really nice camera for stop motion animation as it includes a dedicated single frame mode.
This is a very easy Super 8 camera to use, my only caution for less experienced users is that it's a bit difficult to precisely focus by eye alone when zoomed in to the telephoto end of the lens. I would recommend double-checking the distance makers on the lens before shooting if the sharpest possible footage is desired.
Condition notes The camera is in very good functional and cosmetic condition (see photos). It was tested with batteries and film cartridge (the film was not processed however). The film motor and auto-exposure are working correctly. The film plane focus sharpness and accuracy was verified on an auto-collimator.
