Eumig C 16 film camera

I cherish this camera in a glass display cabinet. It is a seasoned old 16 mm film camera, used for documentaries and animations. The last owner had used it to record title sequences for films and tv programmes.

The architecture of the object is fantastic. It feels heavy and solid, and has dramatic curves. I bought it years ago with the ambition to use it for animation. I never used it, And after a while the digital shockwave that hit us made it obsolete. I still think it is a beautiful piece of engineering.

Everything functions like clockwork.
