I love these old 8mm movie cameras. I've picked up a few of them (really cheap) over the years at the thrift store. The things are built like tanks - every one I've bought still works like it is right out of the box. I believe film can still be bought for these but I haven't looked into shooting them for real - I don't have a projector(though I've seen those pretty cheap too).

I also took this self-portrait today using my homemade-light-modifier-ring-flash-thingy. Its all about the eyes.

This is a really cool photo. I've never seen this type of camera.

They must have been pretty common - they aren't worth much and I often find them at thrift stores.
