Did you know the Beaulieu 4008 is one of the most sought Beaulieu cameras? Not the 2008, or the top of the class 6008 PRO, no, it's the 4008. And with a good reason: it's a versatile camera packed with features.

There are quite a lot of different models: 4008 M 3, 4008 S, 4008 ZM, 4008 ZM 2 and the 4008 ZM 4. Here I'll describe some specs of the Beaulieu 4008 ZM 2.

Quote: "No other Super 8 raises stronger passions among the faithful. You either love it or you love to hate it. For many Super 8 shooters a ZMII equipped with a Schneider-Kreuznach Optivaron 6-6mm. macro zoom represents nothing less than the Holy Grail of Super 8 cameras."

Very good question, and I don't know the answer. Personally I'm a big fan of the Nizo Macro series (561, 801) because they have more features than the Beaulieu. I once had a 4008 but it didn't work because of battery problems (they don't take AA's like the Nizo). I know other film makers swear by them though, and they seem to be very sturdy plus the slow motion is excellent. ...and they look much cooler than the Nizo ;-)
