Kodak Ektasound 130 Super 8 camera with microphone made by the Eastman Kodak Company in the United States, 1973.
The Kodak Super 8 Ektasound 130 was the first camera designed to simultaneously record sound with pictures using magnetically-striped Super 8 Ektachrome film. The introduction of the Super 8 format offering lip-synchronised dialogue opened up the world of sound for the home movie-maker. The only disadvantage was that the microphone often picked up the sound of the camera mechanism. The camera runs at 18 frames per second with a two second sound delay after start-up.
