The secret of the golden Fujica

The Fujica P1 and Z1 models were not actually intended to be the first movie cameras for the Single-8 system from Japan.

The golden Fujica is a kind of hybrid from this period. Details are revealed in this exciting story looking back to the years 1963 to 1965.

The plans of the delicatessen dealer

For over 30 years, Daniel Wittner and his company have been active in providing cinephiles with a wide range of products.
