Nizo for sale

One of the most loved brands in the super-8mm world, most Nizo cameras, made by Braun, have features no other camera has. Look specifically for the models with the automatic B-function (480-801), with this function the camera exposes one frame as long as is necessary before going to the next frame. I made a stop-motion movie with a Nizo 481 from the moon going down during the night. Besides you can fully open the the shutter.

Nizo features

Takes Ektachrome 100D and newer stock?

Nizo S480, S560, S800, 481, 561, 801: YES

Nizo 106,116, S2, 136, 148, 156, Integral: "YES"*
*These smaller camera's take 25, 50D (see YouTube), 40, 100D and 160 ASA, but not always without some manual adjustments

Be careful with the Nizo Integral series. I had a few and they always broke down.

Hi, I recently got a Nizo Spezial 148 but haven't used it yet. I saw on your Nizo page you said the 148 wouldn't work with Ektachrome. Will it work with Vision 3 or any other stocks currently made? Thanks!

I'll get back with more details, but it looks like you can use 100D with your camera. I found a few videos, for example this one. There might be more footage, so you might want to search a bit on YouTube.

Thanks very much John, thats good news!

Though it is possible to film with 100D, you might need some manual exposure adjustments under some circumstances. See the first comment with replies in this video for more details: Nizo 156 and 100D (the 156 is technically the same as your 148).

Hi, I just got a Nizo S8T - any idea if it'll work with Kodak 200T? I couldn't find much information on the camera besides a youtube video that uses 50D. I assume i'll need to manually set the exposure?

This is an interesting one. I can't find any manuals, but it looks similar to the 480, 560, S800 series, although the model is from 1967. It will probably read 200T as 160, so I guess you have to experiment a bit with extra stops and write down what you did and when for future reference. Also, find some YouTube videos of Nizo with 200T and read the descriptions and comments, some have excellent info. I'll get back to you if I come across more info.
