The Object of Desire (1972)

I was skimming Esquire today, and noticed in one of their retrospective pieces that in January 1972, they felt that the Fujica Z600 8mm film camera ($349 back in '72) was super cool; what they called their "Object of Desire". The Z600 was a hand-cranked camera, of lower resolution than any of today's video camcorders, and priced rather like today's sleek Sony HD cameras. I dunno. It just caught my attention. Maybe because we all have camcorders today, or maybe because it reminds me of the camera I used at 9 years old to learn how to shoot movies...
