This 16mm camera was often used for news reporting in the 1960s and 1970s. So it's no wonder that its name is derived from the word "scoop" in the jargon of news broadcasting. The original Scoopic was introduced in 1965, and in 1973 Canon introduced the Scoopic 16M, followed by the 16MN in 1974 and 16MS in 1977.

The Canon Scoopic 16M has a fast 6-time zoom lens(T/2.5. Focal length range from 12.5 to 75mm.) The object is kept in focus throughout the entire zooming. This cam will get you sharp pictures and true color reproduction. The finder is a parallax-free single-lens reflex type and the prism focusing glass assures easy focusing. The shutter release button provides light on the finder before shooting. You can obtain such useful info as T-stops and under-exposure and over-exposure warning marks.

You can select any filming speed from 1, 16, 24, 32, 48 and 64 fps. The shutter opens to a maximum of 170 degrees. These speeds and shutter opening combine to give the following shutter speeds: 16 fps: 1/34, 24 fps : 1/51, 32 fps: 1/68, 48 fps: 1/102, 64 fps: 1/136.
