Following the success of the Camera-Lite Suzuki launched an improved model of the original Echo 8 in 1956. It is slightly larger, as are the cassettes it uses but it still uses split 16mm film with a 6x6mm negative. Most noticeable is the round lens window that accepts screw-in filters (UV, yellow, red) and even a close-up lens for use at eight inches. Fixed-focus, 15mm lens with variable aperture f3.5-f11.

|Cost||300USD (mainly for the film and box)|
|Comment||supplied with 16mm to 8mm film slitter and spare film in wooden box|
This camera has had the metal die casting of the camera damaged by leakage of lighter fluid.
A cigarette box purchased in Pune, Indian is a perfect match for the Echo 8 with space for film and film cutter.
