Unique camera thanks to its oblong design. Most likely, the resemblance with photo cameras should transpose the message that movie making is as easy as taking photographs. Loading the camera, however, was not simplified by its unique concept. Anyhow, the Movikon cameras are real Zeiss Ikon products. You can see and feel the high level of mechanical quality. They are still highly appreciated by collectors.
