The Logmar Camera Solutions "Magellan" is a brand-new, fully electronic, hand-held and ultra-light all-purpose camera which will take large format 65mm photography to a new level. Thanks to its light weight and small dimensions the possibilities with the "Magellan" are only limited by the imagination of the director of photography. The Magellan 65 prototype was presented in Hollywood in May, and cause a quite a stir among A-list cinematographers like Dutch-Swedish cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema and Linus Sandgren.

We are pleased that Jürgen A. Brückner has accepted our invitation to bring his vintage MCS 70 camera for an encore visit. The previous visit in 2012 was a huge success among the audience. A great opportunity to see an authentic 65mm camera. This camera was acquired by Jürgen A. Brückner of the Kinemathek Coburg, Germany in 2012.
This original M.C.S.-70 Superpanorama camera, originally made by Jan Jacobsen in the early 1960s, will also be on display in the Schauburg foyer Saturday and Sunday during the 14. Todd-AO 70mm-Festival. 28 - 30. September, 2018 in Karlsruhe.
The MCS 70 were used to film many Europan 70mm productions during the 1960s. Including "Flying Clipper" and the short film "Fortress of Peace" (1964) (nominated for an Academy Award) and "Sky over Holland" (1967). Only 6 cameras were ever made - all hand built.
