made in Germany by Ritter
This camera was built by Ritter company, a german importer, that acquired all Beaulieu cine stock. It seems an adaptation to 16:9 format from the Beaulieu 7008 S model.
(1) It accepts sound cartridges but had no recording facility.
(2) It accepts 60 meter cassette.
(3) Auto exposure can be used if the cine-camera is equipped with a Reglomatic-type lens.
(4) LCD footage and frame counter.
