Canon 514XL Super 8 Camera


Out of stock

The Canon 514XL Super 8 Camera is a versatile and compact film camera that is simple to use and captures high-quality images. It is one of CameraCrate’s more popular choices. The camera is equipped with a 9 – 45mm f/1.4 lens with a 43mm filter thread. The lens offers macro focusing and has a 5x zoom which allows for capturing detailed close-ups and wide-angle shots. It features a split-image focusing system that helps in focusing accurately on the subject. The user can easily switch between auto and manual focusing modes.

The Canon 514XL supports shooting in three frame rates: 9, 18, and single frame, which enables the user to capture footage in different motion styles. 9fps is fantastic when shooting in poor lighting or when shooting a slow-moving subject. The camera’s shutter angle is 220 degrees, which helps in capturing clear and sharp footage.

The 514XL comes with an auto exposure feature that adjusts the exposure according to the lighting conditions. It also has an EE lock control that locks the exposure settings to maintain consistency in the footage alongside a self-timer with a 10 seconds delay, which allows the user to capture footage without being in the frame.

The 514XL supports different ASA settings for Tungsten (40, 160, 250) and Daylight (25, 100, 160), enabling the user to capture footage in various lighting conditions.

The camera runs on 2 AA batteries, which provides long-lasting power.

Every camera we sell is vigorously inspected by our team. Our ten-part inspection method includes the following checks:

  1. Lens - we check for any mould, dust, haze, dirt, cracks and air bubbles. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining are noted.
  2. Zoom – we inspect both manual and power zoom work smoothly. Any issues are noted.
  3. Focus – we check that manual focus is smooth and works well. If automatic focus is included as a feature that is also checked.
  4. Motor / Claw – we check that the motor runs smoothly at all advertised speeds and that the film claw has sufficient torque to advance film.
  5. Filmgate – this is inspected and any dirt or hair is removed.
  6. Lightmeter – the lightmeter is inspected to ensure it automatically reacts correctly to light. Manual aperture control and/or backlight is also checked if included as a feature.
  7. Viewfinder – we inspect for mould, dust and haze or damage. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining is noted.
  8. Battery terminals - we inspect for rust/corrosion, cleaning and repairing where needed.
  9. Body – where possible we clean any imperfections. Any remaining cosmetic damage is noted.
  10. Additional Features – all additional model specific features (such as timelapse or crossfade) are checked for functionality.

Unless specifically mentioned in the product description, all items sold through our website have passed the above inspection and are fully working.
