Next April Super 8 film will celebrate its 50th anniversary. It was April 1965 when the Eastman Kodak Company introduced a revolutionary new format called Super 8mm film that adapted traditional regular 8mm home movies to an improved cartridge system that we still use today in a variety of applications.
At the same time in France, a French manufacturer of motion picture cameras called Beaulieu introduced their first Super 8mm film camera to work with the new Eastman Kodak system. The Beaulieu 4008 series introduced in 1965 quickly established a reputation as one of the high quality Super 8 cameras on the market because of its interchangeable lens system with a reflex type viewfinder. Although thousands of Super 8 cameras made by hundreds of manufactures were introduced over the next 30 years, the Beaulieu 4008 continues to be one of the best Super 8 camera models ever made.
Our anniversary editions will be limited production making them special and unique. Only 10 cameras in the classic candy red have been manufactured!
