Eumig MINI 3 Servofocus

Eumig MINI 3 Servofocus Eumig started building movie equipment in the 1930s and continued building movie equipment, highly successfull until the 1980s.

The MINI 3 Servofocus was a Super 8 camera for the masses, very small, very easy to operate and of course battery driven. When the film is near ending, the red light in the view finder will light up. This is the very same light when as you push the "BAT" button to test the batteries.

This camera was also sold under the Bolex brand name as "Bolex 233 Compact".
