Looks like it has two pin connector for starting / stopping a tape recorder... (can anybody else confirm this?)
Comments by User:Paul814: The 2 pin socket is intended to accept the Bolex battery chargers for 110-250V AC or 12V DC and and charge rechargeable AA batteries when fitted.
This is a handy compact silent camera made by Chinon for Bolex with a faster than usual F1.1 zoom lens. It has no macro so requires a supplementary lens for closeup work since the minimum focussing distance is 2 metres. Unusually for a simple late 70s super 8 camera it registers the Ektachrome 64T notch correctly.
