Wow! I had one of these when I first got into 8mm. This was my 1st camera. If you unscrew the handle and mount it on a tripod the little lever is your trigger, the red hole is a window to show how much film you used. Thw long lever snaps out and is for winding the spring. You have to flip flop the film in a dark area or in a black bag. You have to feel you way around in the dark or the film gets exposed. I still have some color films I made with this camera. And the color is still good. I forgot what the switch is for under the lens? Film speed maybe. Have fun!

Hi the Keystone K8 (OR K8 C Zoom) were manufactured in 1936 , your picture would suggest the camera is the model K810 ZOOM - the collectors value $40 - though can be purchased for less on ebay. Have fun..
