Auto Zoom 814

The Canon 814 was developed as a high-end camera for the Super 8 market. At first, Canon planned a 6x zoom lens to be fitted onto this model. The company had to take a lot of technological hurdles.

The Auto Zoom 814 Super 8 was introduced in 1967 and had the world's first 8x f/1.4 zoom lens.

Does this camera need separate light meter batteries?

Only the first generation, the 'Canon Auto Zoom 814' needs 2x 1.3V PX625 cell batteries for the light meter which can be a hassle to find. I prefer the 2nd generation, the 'Canon Auto Zoom 814 Electronic': no light meter batteries, and better functionality, IMO :-)
