  1. additional pictures, the camera was totally rebuilt by Bruce, new paint, new electronics, two perf gate and movement
  2. bruce retired and sold off all his equipment! I have four two perf Kinor bodies if you are interested!
  3. I'd say the biggest mental changeup, is how to fit in with a large crew you are new too. Most of the time if you are brought in as a day player, the regular crew has probably worked together for years, and have a routine. NO two crews are alike, and one has to observe and figure out how you can fit in to the flow. First thing is that you have to observe the lighting set up, the rigging crew has already done a lot of the work setting up, and you have to size up what the shooting crews task at hand. Usually the most deceptive simple setups are the most complicated. Read the call sheet study how production has planned the day, how much they plan to do before lunch, most importantly especially if you are outside, observe the weather conditions, where the sun is. Almost think like the DP, who has a job to do , within a limited time. That way you can anticipate what is going to happen before the DP tells the gaffer and the key grip what he needs. Being observant and in position, is alike a basket ball game, where you know where to be on court during a fast break. Eventually you will figure out how to work with different crews and you will find you phone ringing for more days on set.
  4. do you have picture of OPF7 25-250MM.3.5 can be equipped with anmorphic adapter. OCT-19/PL 1500/ 2850
  5. Thanks for your reply,yah i have seen these cameras come up form time to time, but why bother, too much work to get it working, and finding spare parts is impossible. More like a museum piece , sad because i really wonder if this camera actually worked in a production?
  6. ANyone familiar with this KINOR 35PII camera
  7. two perf GG , PL mount KOnvas camera
  8. I have a Konvas camera converted to two perf. nice run and gun camera, MOS though
  9. Hi all, I have several two perf project cameras , on was a converted Konvas, and I am hoping to convert a flying eye camera body to two perf!
  10. Hi all, I think that many of the issues of shooting two perf will be resolved: Problem: Sync two perf camera's. Instead of hoping for it, you have them made. I have had four KINOR 35 2 perf camera's converted or found on ebay, and now two ARRI BL4's and one Arri III from the camera rental houses that have went out of business. I had my bl4 converted to two perf by the great ANdree Martin at AM Camera! Workflow: the cost of digital scanning has come down with the emergence of scanners from black magic or moviestuff retro scanner, and Kodak opening new labs was big. Raw stock:Kodak has emerged from bankruptcy and films rumored death has been greatly exaggerated.
  11. So finall testing all those short ends i have been saving for years off shoots! lol
  12. finally back from conversion by master camera tech Andree Martin, Arri BL4s converted to two perf ARRI BL4!
  13. additional russian museum pieces Konvas 2 perf
  14. lol.I went down the russian rabbit hole too, first buying LOMO super speeds on the cheap, then buying Konvas Bodies before shifting to rebuilt KINOR 35h from Anders Banke and then converting the camera to two perf at Aranda! Just as the RED Digital Craze hit, and the SAG threatened strike caused a shift in production to Digital and a big move to the east coast. As the Film demand decreased so did the labs, until the last lab in NYC closed. That was the absolute bottom, and the price of Movie cameras dropped to nothing. All of the sudden what i paid for one Kinor 2 perf camera I was able to buy four more....lol. At that point i had all these KINOR camera's that where hard to service and no one wanted to use. SO i have a nice museum of KINOR 2 perf sync cameras lol! However once the hollywood heavies came to the rescue and Kodak emerged from bankruptcy and opened a new lab in new york, the price of my movie cameras started to sky rocket, lol. Maybe i should open a 2 perf camera store, lol!. Anyway after all that, i finally decided i needed cameras that can be serviced and are built to last, so now i have 2 perf ARRI bl4's and an ARRI III. Finally doing test, until COVID hit and closed down the lab, lol. I can still look at my russian two perf museum lol!
  15. streaks and tips, talk to the hairdresser on set they have a whole range of colors that can be used to create sepia look!
  16. I am looking for a 50mm optica elite super speed S35 lens, I am willing to trade I have a 50mm lomo super speed lens in PLmount.
  17. I have been trying to configure a 2 perf Konvas on a clone steadicam, but i am at the weight limit of the arm?
  18. i have the exact same lens, but original OCT.19 mount, i have adapters for it, but since the rear sticks so far into the camera body, i wonder if it's worth to have mount switched to PL mount. How much did it cost you and where did you have it done?
