The Reliant 8mm movie camera was one of the early metal bodied Kodak movie cameras (early 1940s). It is a quality clockwork-driven camera with a fixed-focus f/2.7 13mm Kodak Cine-Ektanon lens. The exposure is set using the dial around the lens, either by f/number or symbols for the light conditions. Recommended film speed is 16 frames per second (giving you a 1/30th second set shutter speed)

Questions? Ask Mike Raso -

Camera will only shoot Double 8 film - Camera will not shoot Super 8 or 16mm film.

We recommend using hand-held light meter, light meter app or Black Cat Exposure Guide based on the film ISO you are using and the 1/30th sec shutter speed. (Please DO NOT use the guide on the camera lens. The guide is for film ISO that is no longer available)

After processing  this gives 50 ft. of film (about 4 minutes showing).
