Canon super 8 cameras are consistently some of most popular cameras – whether you’re looking for a simple point and click super 8 camera for a beginner, something a little more advanced or a top of the line model used for professional shoots. But what model? If you’re looking for something simple, perhaps a Canon 318m, 310XL, 514XL or AF310XL with automatic exposure, and in the case of the AF310XL, autofocus! These models are small and lightweight, perfect for popping in a bag (or a large coat pocket).
If you’re looking for something that has a few more features, perhaps consider the Canon 518 Auto Zoom Super 8 Camera or it’s successor the Canon 518 SV – both have a 5x zoom, automatic and manual exposure settings and even slow motion filming! The 518 SV also shoots at 24fps and meters 500T (as 400).
If you’re looking for a lot of zoom, or tons of features, then have a look at the 814 or 1014. Over the years Canon released several updates to these models, including the 814 Auto Zoom, 814 Electronic, 814 XL, 814XL-S, 1014 Electronic and 1014XL-S.
