Cine Canonet 8 with wrist strap, lens original Canon case!

The Cine Canonet 8 was created and manufactured by Canon in 1963. A compact mechanism was made possible thanks to the electric motor and a new, very compact 2.5x zoom lens, whose front focusing lens group worked as a zooming compensation lens, as well. Thanks to these features, a very slim and long sideways design, containable in a coat pocket, was achieved.
