The newest addition to my 8mm movie camera collection

I just bought this on eBay. It’s a 1962 Bell and Howell Zoomatic Director Series Model 414 PD.

Why is this camera so interesting? It’s the exact make, model, and year as the camera Abraham Zapruder used when he filmed John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the most famous home movie in history. The original camera is on display in the National Archives.

After November 22, 1963, Zapruder never owned another movie camera, and he never shot another home movie.
