This Super 8-Inspired Camera Shoots GIFs to Recreate the Look and Feel of 8mm Film

The Fragment 8 camera is the latest entry in the nostalgia-driven “retro” craze: a Super 8-inspired digital camera that trades 8mm film for 720p resolution GIFs or MP4s shot on a tiny CCD image sensor.

Designed by a film director and industrial designer—who together founded the startup Lofty Factory—the little camera is being touted as “a perfect replica of a Super 8 camera, including shutter sound, 2-minute time limit, and vintage image look.” Inspired by the Keystone K35 8mm camera, the goal of the Fragment 8 is to recreate the whole experience: not just the “visual look” of shooting 8mm film, but the actual feeling and experience of using a Super 8 camera.

You can see the camera in action in the videos below:
