Sankyo Super CME-330 Hi-Focus

Recommended Posts

This is a fairly basic camera, but was well built, so the one you are considering might still work fine.  If you satisfied with the camera's basic functions, why not consider it then?  Offer 15 Euros, but even the asking price is cheap.  It only films at 18fps and single frame, but 18fps is fine.  I have never seen the need to shoot at 24fps except to smooth out movement in moving shots, in a film that will be projected at 18fps.  The quality difference is small, and for anyone getting into Super 8mm to learn, have fun, capture memories etc, 18fps is fine.  The other versions of the SANKYO Hi-Matic feature larger zoom ratios and more features.  One nice feature is that you can keep the pistol grip folded and mount the camera on a tripod this way, which helps keep it steady.  Best of luck if you get this camera.
