I can remember growing up my dad used to get on my nerves really bad with his stupid video camera. It was one those cameras that recorded to reels of film that you had to develop the film for playback. To watch the film he had to put it on one of those reel-to-reel projectors. I remember it resembled this D16 Bolex quite a bit. If you like things that appear to be retro, but are actually modern, this might be the camera for you.
