 I know this camera is popular among collectors, but I would like to hear from anyone who has actually used this camera to film with so they can share their experiences and what kind of images it produce.

In my amateur opinion, there are a lot better cameras to use to film with. The best thing the 75 has going for it, is that really snazzy covering. I bought one from a charity shop for a few dollars and it had a 1" Cooke Kinic as well as a 3" Cooke Telekinic. Those are great lenses but the camera, not so much. The mount is not native C, it's actually like a D mount but proprietary, as C mount lenses need an adapter. The camera operated but did so unstably, so it's a source for parts now. If I had a hankering to shoot with that form factor camera, I'd find a Keystone ready to shoot 1R and have fun.
