This is the first time I have touched an 8mm film camera, but when I touched it, I was pleasantly surprised by its presence and texture, such as its weight and fast-moving shutter, more than I expected. It is an anachronistic spring-driven mechanism, but because of that, it is also robust enough to work even now, more than 70 years after its manufacture.

When I was doing some research, I found an advertisement of the watch on sale, so I ended up buying it.

 "When you choose a Filmo, you choose a movie camera made with the high skill of Bell & Howell craftsmen who have built Hollywood"s preferred professional equipment for 41 years. Only Filmos can offer you this priceless heitage."
