The Chinon Bellami HD-1 (About £500)

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment


That good old CHINON seems to revive a fan of yesteryear. It is reported that CHINON’s brand. The camera  is on sale in mid-March this year, HD video can be taken and still images from the Bellami HD-1 HD video. They have adopted the M42 mount lens C, CS is supported with an adapter.


This was my trusty Chinon Super 8mm sound camera a name that was sold in Dixon’s before they went bust. I don’t know what to make of this video/cine camera, interesting to see if it makes its way over to the UK. This wee camera could turn out to be a whole lot of fun and priced at about £500.

    Actually, I like it! It’s a ‘thing’ – not for pro work, but for filming stuff where you want to keep the cheer going. Besides which, who could resist a camera named after a funny beardy birdwatcher that makes a cold shoe look studly?
