I found a better copy of the manual for the B&H Model 240 16mm camera (for the single lens, twin lens, and triple lens turret models). I'm going to scan this and make it available online for everyone. I also found my cache of camera manuals which I can also scan and upload. Here is a list of regular 8mm and Super 8mm camera manuals. If you see one you want, just let me know and I'll scan it and upload it.

Hey There! I know this post is a bit old, but do you still have that Argus Cinemax 8EE manual?

I'd love a manual for the Cinemax 8EE or 85E.
Looking to see how to load the film, also wondering what the 3.5/7 switch on the side of the camera is for.
There is also a mechanical switch on the opening side of the camera (on the door) with A and R positions.
Anyone knows what it is for?

Herb Montes hasn't been on this forum for about 5 years so dunno if you'll get a response.
