While viewing the movie “Iron Mountain. Blueprint to Tyranny,” I saw a person in the movie (approx at 1:41:03 ) video taping the Parade, with a Digital Camcorder!
video.google.com...#
This unit is completely self contained with no cables or hook-ups. It does have a wrist strap, with possibly flip-out a CCD display!

What type of camcorder was around like that in 1969?
I checked with LabGuy's World: Museum of Extinct Video Cameras and Accessories
www.labguysworld.com...
and could find nothing close to what this person is holding.

Can anyone identify this camera?

Can you show some stills?

It will take forever for my work computer to load a video that big

No man..it's cool. No one is freaking out about it at all.
Just a portable film recorder.

It is not a digital camcorder, just a normal 8mm or super 8 movie camera like this one

Yeah it looks to me like a camera from their time era.

I looked at it 10times and I am certain it is not a modern digital camera.

But this is simply my assessment.

You have eyes like a hawk though. Thanks for linking that movie, I'll watch the whole thing later.

Why do you think that?
"The Swiss company Paillard-Bolex SA introduced its first 8 mm camera in 1938 and its first 'pocket' 8 mm camera aimed squarely at the amateur market, the L-8, in 1942"

After seeing it, its definently just a normal cam corder. Although those were probably to expensive for most at the time, its certainly not a time traveller

There is a rectangular section on the side, which looks like it is open able.

And the size and two circles inside of it fit with VCR technology.

"The first type of VCR was developed by Sony Japan in 1970. The home VCR system that we see now were developed by Philips in 1972."

Sooo hmm.

That parade was in 1969... well.

Perhaps the .gov or someone had their hands on VCR tech several years early???

With only a few years difference, I can certainly see prototypes floating around secretly.

However I read the first forms of this technology were developed during the late 50's , so its a very complicated issue here.

Perhaps you are actually on to something?

That is to put the film in...

It is just a film camera, a google search of images would even show you the exact model

Yes, he is onto someone filming a parade with a film camera....

"Canon Auto Zoom 518 Super 8 according to Canon Camera Museum marketed September 1967."

www.mrmartinweb.com...

Think I found our camera model.

Timing fits perfect too.

Although it has a smaller lens on it, but other than that it looks like a very very close match.

These all have the WRONG lens type! Here is Ilford Elmo's site.

But you can change the lens though cant you?

My grandfather had old cameras like these super 8's among many other cameras, and he had boxes full of different types of lenses.

So it is possible he had a smaller lens on it, just a possibility.

Here is another web site with additional images, No Similarity
, but. it's close. It would be funny if this was a mock 1960"s camera (in the film) that uses a high resolution digital ( Zeiss?) zoom lens. It looks sort of like my Sony that has a Zeiss lens. Commonly found in today's high end Camcorders.

You don't have to be condescending, I was already onto the Super 8's as you were posting that.

It takes a lot of time to look through this stuff and I know nothing about cameras.

So I take great pride in the fact I came across the Super 8's by myself and figured it out. (At least the most likely possibility).

You probably are far more knowledgeable on this than me, so take mercy on those of us whom are simply learning it on the fly.

I never even heard of the Super 8's until i typed in 1968 8mm camcorder into google and went through 100 models until i saw one exactly like it.

Ok ill look into the lens issue.

I'll update this post if i find a match.


edit-

I honestly cannot find anything that is an exact match for the lens. I've gone through several hundred from the time period already.

The closest thing I can find is 13mm f1.9-22 lens. Or possibly a f1.8 zoom lens.

These still don't match up perfectly. This is difficult.
