Canon Scoopic for sale

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.
