The Canon 514XL super 8 camera was released in 1976. This compact film camera is a revised version of the basic and best-selling Auto Zoom 518SV model. The built-in self-timer enables 10 seconds shooting with 10 seconds delay for great in-camera effects, and it can be fitted with a wide attachment lens.
Note: Not to be confused with the Canon 514XL-S Canosound camera.
