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."
You can find plenty of footage, filmed with this camera on youtube: Beaulieu 4008 sample movies.
