This eight-millimeter camera was designed for filming home movies, an American pastime that provided hours of enjoyment, as all the camera advertisements promised. A camera and projector could be purchased with installment payments from department stores like Montgomery Ward, which also offered Revere eight-millimeter film with processing and return postage included.
