aapo lettinen Posted June 29, 2020 Share Posted June 29, 2020 (edited) I started to modify my new Leicina S to real Crystal Sync as soon as it arrived today. There seems to be a demand for sync sound Dual 8 cameras so the update, when ready, will become available for order one way or another. I will do a lot of prototyping and testing in the following months and will post the results here 🙂 The first stage was to disassemble the motor side of the camera to see what the possibilities are to attach a speed sensor to the original motor and how much there will be space available for the circuit boards. I also calculated the reference frequencies needed and did some drafting. The next stage will be to manufacture a custom speed sensor assembly for the motor and then hook it up to my existing Crystal motor controller prototype and start to run sync tests. I can already say at this stage that this WILL work correctly. Release schedule is TBA at the moment but I would say "pretty soon" at this stage because I already know how to do this conversion and have most of the electronics design ready 🙂 Edited June 29, 2020 by aapo lettinen 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
