Canon Auto Zoom 512XL with original case!

Eastman Kodak Company announced its XL system in 1971. This system improved part of the camera mechanism to increase the volume of the light reaching the film surface. It also made it possible to shoot under dim light conditions with high-speed film. “XL” stood for “Existing Light.” Canon developed a new XL shutter mechanism with a 220-degree shutter opening and low noise, as well as a new 5x f/1.2 zoom lens, which was considered the highest performance lens, even at the full opening, for the XL system at that time.

Macro shooting as close as 5 cm from the lens top with the wide macro setting was also possible. The viewfinder became brighter and more precise. The exterior was changed from the traditional metallic image to black. A rubber foldable lens hood was attached at the lens top. From this model onward, all Canon 8mm movie cameras were XL type.

This camera was used to shoot Le Currents & Laneway Festival so feel free to head to our Instagram for some footage examples.
