The Canon Scoopic M/MS 16mm camera has long been regarded as an ideal MOS camera for newsreels, industrials, documentaries and wildlife cinematography. It is also probably one of the better 16mm camera buys on the used market these days. Although the basic film load is only 100', the camera can also be fitted with the optional 400' magazine adaptor (see photo). The lens is an integral Canon 12.5 to 75mm f/1.8 (T2.5) with macro capability. Automatic or manual exposure control is selectable as are the five filming speeds of 16, 24, 32, 48 and 64 fps. The camera weighs 7.5 pounds with film and battery.
With our crystal control modification, the Canon M/MS is now also an ideal camera for sync sound use!
The crystal sync conversion is completely internal to the camera. A sync indicator LED is installed at the rear of the camera to the right of the eyepiece. A toggle switch to activate crystal control is located on the control side next to the power switch. The conversion can be supplied for 24fps, 25fps or 30fps.
