Item details

Here we have a vintage 1960s Sekonic (Japan) Elmatic 8mm Turret Movie Camera in excellent condition, in original leather case, with screw in wrist strap. We have tested it and the motor is in working order. Camera is clean and appears to have been seldom if ever used.

The camera has three lenses: f1.8 32mm lens Resonar - T; f1.9 13mm lens Resonar - T; f1.9 9mm lens Resonar - T, and three internal filters: ND, Haze, and Conv filter.

The case is in good vintage condition with some wear to the edges and to the red velvet interior, mild soiling, creases, etc.

We did not have the original instruction manual but we did find a copy online and printed it for you- see samples of 17 page booklet reprint in last three photos.

NOT included (but shown in photo) is the German Tully flash attachment. It was stowed in the case along with the movie camera, and so was photographed along with the Elmatic, but further research revealed it does not in fact work with this camera. It is listed separately in our shop.

Sekonic (still in business today) was more known for its light meters and lenses than its cameras, so this model is somewhat rare in any condition. A working model this beautifully preserved is quite a find- and this one is a classic! Great gift for a film student.

Packed carefully and shipped insured to reach you safely. Please be familiar with all of our policies before ordering. Thanks for looking at our Etsy store today, and stay tuned for more cameras and gadgets listing in this section of our Etsy shop very soon!
