Coby Berger Posted February 24, 2019 Share Posted February 24, 2019 Hey I'm new to super 8 cinematography but not unfamiliar with old cameras that need repairs. for example in skateboarding videography the Sony VX1000 is over 20 years old but is still used by many professionals and can only be trustfully repaired by Kerry Edwards at Video Electronics. Lurking these forums before making an account it seems Bjorn in Seweden is the equivalent for Beaulieus. That being said I am already planning on sending a Beaulieu 6008 s that I buy to him. My questions about this camera I could not find searching the forums. They are: - How long does a CLA last? when would I need to have it serviced again? - I see on the beaulieu 6008 pro there is a switch on the back to change it from 24(ntsc) to 25 (pal), is there the same switch on the beaulieu 6008 s? if not what is it's native format and would there be a problem if it's 25(pal) since I'm located in the states? all footage i will be having scanned at 4k.. don't know if that makes a difference or if that's something I need to tell the lab? - The stock I'll be using is kodak vision3 50D. on the asa dial of the 6008 s it goes from 40 - 80 with 2 notches in between. which one would be for asa 50? i've also read to overexpose the 50D by a stop or two. is this the common practice? - Lastly is a Beaulieu 6008 s a good camera? or would it be better to invest in something else.. I would love to see footage from one scanned at 4k but I can only find footage from the 4008zm series. is that camera better for any reason? the batteries seem like a pain as opposed to just AA's thanks for any help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
