My auntie thought of me this week and bought a vintage movie camera for my collection. This is the first video camera to make it into my collection, and it's a pretty nifty little machine. rd95 was super chuffed when I showed it to him. It's a Revere Model 88 Cine Camera. Here's what I know: it was manufactured in Chicago sometime in the 1940's-1950's. The company that made these was sold to the company that became 3M in 1960. Fully wound it would take 2 minutes of video, and had settings for 8-32 FPS. Since it was meant for use by the 'everyman' it had guides for exposure mounted to the film loading door and around the lens. This particular example came in a leather case with a strap. (I love the case on this thing, and I love the weird brain pattern of the metal camera casing!) More pics (mostly of the case and such) in the full imgur gallery.
*hat tip to kleinbl00 for the correction. This being my first non-still image film camera, I didn't know there's a big difference between the term movie and video. TIL.
