Pentaka 8B
Pentaka 8B The Pentaka 8B is often seen as a cheap basic double8 film camera but it is actually very nice. It offers all the basics and a little more such as lens change, clockwork (wind) motor and it's very small. Unfortunately the camera is covered with blue paper which often got loose at the corners but this can easily be glued back in place.
