Introduced by the Swis firm Paillard S A, the H16 was a high quality, versatile camera used by amateur moviemakers who took their craft seriously. Using the larger 16mm film format, rather than the 8mm preferred by the casual user, these cameras gave the kind of quality that eventually converted the profesionals - and in the end spelled the end of these cameras, as the profesionals demanded more sophisticated 16mm equipment.
