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.

It's close. Notice that just rear of the objective lens, is a square area, and to the rear of that, to larger horizontal projections, not verticle like on the cannon. And again, the lens is very different.

Time travelers are required to use equipment of the era they are vacationing in. They will simply bring that 8mm camera back with them.

The mock 1960"s camera in the film uses a high resolution digital ( Zeiss?) zoom lens.


Can you be more specific and explain how you come to this conclusion, please?

I have in front of me a Sony DCR-HC85 NTSC with a Carl Zeiss T lens, with attached pistol grip. It was this camera that made me wonder about this film.

That um...does not actually answer my question in anyway shape or form. Should I bother trying again? I am getting the feeling that you are not so much looking for the truth as you are trying to convince people what you believe. Ignoring my first question answers the second, thanks.

One is a film camera, one is a camcorder, seperated by 30+ years, why would they have similiar lenses?

It's Super-8 Film camera...My dad (he's 75 now) has one just like it
they had the 50 foot film cartridges which gave you about 6 minutes
of recording time with a MAGNETIC stripe sound recording which
means since about 1965/66 you could have VIDEO and AUDIO
in one small camera...AND...the video is actually BETTER QUALITY
than the old hi-8 or MiniDV tape cameras....the sound quality sucked though!!!!

THe colour definition and dynamic range/contrast was AMAZING.
I've transfered Super-8 to Digital Betacam and HD-CAM and I was
totally ASTOUNDED how good the quality was from a Super-8 film camera
from 1965 !!!!!

Are you being serious?

Dammit! I've only just today spent £800 on a Flux Capacitor to go into my DeLorean DMC-12!

What a waste of money

I thought the word "camcorder" meant "Camera Recorder".

Under this definition it seems every hand held video camera ever invented was a "camcorder".

Although it is usually used to refer to digital cams (apparently according to research), the word at it's base is just a Camera Recorder.

So imho, all of them are "camcorders".

I am just going with the definition of the word here.

Sorry to nitpick. If professionals disagree, you need to specify your terminology much better, don't blame me.

That's my exact question. The way the lens attaches to the body of the camera on the film, has so far been different than any other camera of it's time. It looks similar to the camera that I have.

Did you say 1969? how about the camera that the Zapruder film was shot from when JFK was assasinated, anyhow this somewhat comparatively small camera was out in 1963.

people arent thinking out of the box enough


this is definitely a time traveler



and it is not a film camera, it is a stealth digital camera that has been disguised to look like a camera from the time they have traveled to in order to blend in without causing suspicion


they had to do this because they lost the original footage and had to make a duplicate, the guy filming was basically getting minimum wage in the future to come back and get some b roll footage


trust me im dead serious

It looks "SIMILAR" to the camera you have. Just like it loos similar to the film cameras you have been shown. Are you looking at an exact match? No. Why are you dismissing the ones people are showing you? They are not an exact match. Do you see where your train is beginning to come off the rails here?

LOL. No, it was funny but this is ATS and well...I am just saying. I have seen far crazier sounding posts that were indeed serious. A Lego Time Machine machine comes to mind. I just thought that before I laughed, I had to ask.

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"
en.wikipedia.org...


Was this famous movie of Hitler and Eva Braun playing at the Berghof on the Obersaltzberg not taken with a handheld camera? I guess you are right.
