The Canon 310 XL is a Super 8 camera that was first produced by Canon in the 1970s. This Canon super 8 camera is highly sought after by film enthusiasts and collectors due to its high-quality image and ease-of-use and is one of Camera Crate’s more popular items as it is considered a viable option for those looking to experiment with super 8 film today. It’s automatic exposure system is a great option for beginners and those wanting a simple shooting system. The Canon 310XL is capable of reading and automatically metering the following film stocks:

  • Kodak Vision3 50D 7203 Super 8 Film

  • Kodak Ektachrome 100T 7294 Super 8 Film

  One of the standout features of the Canon 310 XL is its low light shooting capability. It’s f/1.0 aperture lens allows the user to get well-exposed images in poor light. The camera also has a single-lens reflex viewfinder which allows the user to see what they will be capturing before they press the record button. This feature is particularly useful for those who are new to the world of film, as it allows them to get a feel for the camera before they start shooting. In addition the macro lens allows you to focus on subjects that are very close to the lens. The Canon 310 XL Super 8 Camera is powered by 2 x AA batteries and is highly portable. This makes it perfect for those who are looking to take the camera on the go and shoot in a variety of different locations.   Product specification

I can’t thank you enough for your website and the service you provide, I went through three super 8 cameras in this project, including one sold as ‘checked, repaired, CLA’d’, and the one I purchased from you was the only one that worked, and it worked flawlessly! I recommend to everyone that asks me about the film, absolute mvp!

I hadn't noticed that the seller was in the UK until after the purchase, so when it showed up on my doorstep just a couple days later, I was floored. Great service, great descriptions, and fantastic packaging for international shipments.

Camera was packaged so so well, it probably could’ve been chucked out a car and it wouldn’t have had any damage. Delivery was extremely quick and it looks in great condition. Seller was excellent and would recommend buying from.

The seller has been to a good deal of trouble to ensure a safe delivery to the customer. This was a delicate item and all associated parts were individually packed in the container. Received with appreciation.
