Question Vintage Wittnauer 8mm


My mother recently bought me a Wittnauer Cine-simplex 8mm video camera from an auction. It appears to be in good condition. I have been trying to do some research to learn how to use it, but the only things that come up from a Google search are eBay listings. Is there anyone on here who has experience with vintage 8mm cameras, or might know of any resources where I can find some more information? I would really love to film a project with this camera. Thank you.

It's a terrific camera. I have a LOT of experience with 8mm
and super8 cameras.

I'm guessing you have never shot a roll of film in your life. Am
I correct? There are no differences between film cameras; you
put in a roll of 8mm film, set the ASA to the type of film you
are using, set the exposure and shoot.
