This vintage 8mm movie camera, the Cine-Kodak Eight (8) Model 20, was introduced in 1932, one of the first to use 8mm film, enabling the average family to make home movies.
The camera winds with fold down crank on the side and has a button on the side to run it. The f stop adjusts from 3.5 to 16, and a guide on the side relates f stop to lighting condition. The viewfinder is built into the fold-down handle, and a tripod screw hole is on the bottom. The camera also has a hole that indicates whether the camera is empty or full.
The camera is covered with a textured, leather-like material, and the metal on the sides is sparkly black. Inside there's a sticker with Kodak film and patent numbers (patented in Canada in 1934), plus a sticker that says "Serviced 8-1-56, Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N.Y."
The camera is in very good condition with a little wear to the case but the leather is complete with no breaks in the strap or snaps and all dials and knobs moving easily. Everything seems to work fine--it winds and runs and all the knobs move, but I haven't tested it with film. The top view finder does have a hairline crack vertically but is completely in tact. Size: 6 x 4 3/8 x 1 3/4 inches
