Retro with a modern look, the Canon 512XL fulfils your basic super 8 camera needs and more! Introduced in 1975, Canon developed a new "eXisting Light" mechanism with a 220-degree shutter opening and low noise. They also equipped this cam with a new 5x zoom f/1.2 lens, which was considered the highest performance lens at the time.
