French manufacturer of motion picture cameras especially well-known for its Super 8 and 16mm hand-held cameras; founded by Marcel Beaulieu. The company's first camera was the 2008 S Beaulieu, introduced in 1965. Note that in 1978 Beaulieu marketed and sold several low-cost cameras, the Beaulieu 1008XL/1028XL and 60/1068 XLS; these cameras were in fact manufactured by Chinon Industries under the Beaulieu brand. They are very rare, particularly the Beaulieu 1068 XLS. Though no longer actively producing new cameras (production ceased in 2002) the company still service and repair existing Beaulieu cameras
