The name Movikon is derived from the terms „movie“ and „Zeiss Ikon“. It was already used in the 1930s. In 1952, it was the inspiration for a highly unusual double 8 cine camera, constructed transversely, similar to a camera. Filming in landscape format – the Movikon 8 made it possible because of the special position of the film. Here, the film lies on the side of the film door (not vertically as is usually the case) and has to be turned twice in reversing loops in order to run through the film channel. There were several versions of the Movikon 8.
The camera offers a Movitar Lens 10mm f1.9
This later model built in 1956 does have an fps switch for: single shots, 16fps, 24fps, 32fps, 48fps.
Which was pretty crazy for that time. This camera is an absolute masterpiece of german engineering.
