MODEL 730 LIDO ZOOM

  Keystone Camera Company, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts              Circa 1962

Keystone's Model 730 Lido Zoom is believed to have been introduced in the early 1960's. Being non-reflexed, with spool load, manual zoom and an electric eye, its features follow those of Keystone's K-8D DeLuxe "Horizon" of 1962.

What's special about the Lido is the model name.  For some unknown reason, this model is almost never seen, suggesting it was either a promotional item or was made for a very short period.

 

Though it looks like the common Keystone 8mm in every respect, you may have a hard time finding one to add to your collection.
