Rare 1954 SPECTO '88' 8mm Cine/Movie Camera. Manufactured in Windsor, England, from 1954, by Specto Limited, the Specto camera matched well with the companies manufacture of film projectors. The Specto 88 camera comes in good condition, with only slight signs of use/age. The camera uses a crank-handled spring motor, which still sounds good. The f2.5 12.5mm lens appears clear. A leather wrist-strap is attached to the base of the camera. Also included is an original f4.0 1.5ins Dallmeyer telephoto lens, which is matched to a hinged mask on the viewfinder, plus the original Instruction booklet. PLUS the original SPECTO leather camera/accessory case. Although small, the camera weighs an impressive 917 grams. At 64-years-of-age, an interesting and rare little camera

    Molto gentile nel rispondere su alcuni ragguagli. La spedizione ha richiesto tempo ma ciò non dipendeva dal venditore. I lotti corrispondono precisamente alla descrizione. Nicely done.

    Soddisfatta e felice, articolo in ottime condizioni e perfettamente imballato. Solo a causa di disguidi postali (da NON imputare assolutamente al venditore) è giunto + tardi, ma tutto è finito bene😊

    Imballo molto curato e spedizione rapida. Però nella descrizione è scritto che l'otturatore funziona ad intermittenza.
    L'otturatore NON FUNZIONA.( Ho provato tanto) Cambio parere per questo motivo.

    Response by seller
    I described the shutter as 'INTERMITTENT' because that is what it was. I had no reason to say otherwise. I can only assume that the camera has been miss-handled during postage. I am more than happy for you to return it to me and I will refund as per catawiki regulations.
    Regards AWR
    ps. You will note I have a 100% reputation, which I am proud of and ask that the negative comments be rescinded.
    Thank you.

    Les photos de l'objet n'étaient pas représentatives ( flatteuses ) et la boite d'emballage quasiment détruite était habilement masquée derrière lui.
    J'ai payé un jouet..un prix exhorbitant ...
