  1. A bit late :) I found a name on one of the camera boxes, Peter Thornton. And there were also two other stickers: Les Bosher and Camera Engineering. Just wrote them both, waiting for a reply. Thanks guys and sorry for the reply.
  2. I'm planning to shoot my next film, "Self Help" on DVX100B, Andromeda, Reel Stream, 4:4:4. I bough a barely used gear from a Texas based production comany that went bust. No idea how to use it but I have a manual. That's a start :) Anyway if there are any DP's out there that can share their experience or give advice then that would be well appreciated. When the time comes we'll be looking for a DP but until now I just wanted to shoot some tests before I decide to shoot the film on andro instead of S16mm Aaton. Here's a photo of it: http://www.ivan-samu...-for-self-help- Ta!

  4. Thank you so much for your help. I will try doing what you suggested and I think I'm going to send it anyway to Les. Also want to convert it to Super 16. I do have two cameras and I'm trying to decide which one I should get serviced. You know if there is huge differences between NPR models?
  5. Hi Assaf, Just wanted to ask you if you would know where I can info on the Eclair NPR models? I searched online but didn´t find anything.
  6. Hi, forgot to mention that same thing happens with another motor I have which runs 100% so it´s not the motor. Yes he did say it was just serviced. He´s actually a member on this forum, called Bill Santen. I was hoping it was something as simple as adding oil or something like that.
  7. Thanks! However there´s a new little problem ;) When it´s attached to the camera it starts making squeaky noises which get loader. At first it blew the fuse after about a minute of running. Motor seems to have been struggling with running the camera. But now it just make noise, so far. I´m too afraid to run it too long in case it exhausts the motor or something. I´m supposed to be filming a promo next Saturday and need the camera to be working :( Any idea what the problem might be, have you encountered anything similar? Here is a video of what I´m talking about: http://youtu.be/WMIVNXLQNtI
  8. Thanks so much guys :) This forum is sooo awesome. I found out that it was the battery after all. It's strange cause it would show full power on my charger but when I took it to this electrical repair shop they said it was dead and tested the motor for me with another motor and low and behold it worked.
  9. I did charge it and nothing changes :( Bought this on ebay and the seller said it was a a brand new motor. What to do what to do. Any ideas where I could take it to be checked in London? Where they don't rip you off. I did write Optical Electro House but havent heard anything back from them. Tried calling them but number on their site doesn't seem to work. (Very dramatic having a 16mm film camera :)
  10. That´s probably it. I did charge it over night but I´going to charge it for longer. Hopefully it will be nothing bigger then that. Fingers crossed. I tried to run it with it attached to the camera and by it´s self. Yeah the red light is the sync warning light. Thanks!
  11. I´m also looking for a second hand one
  12. Hi guys, I just bought an Eclair NPR with a new motor from ´Optical Electro House´. The camera has just been serviced by the previous owner. When I turn the motor on the red light comes on but nothing else happens. Any idea what could be the problem? Could it be the battery I´m using? http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=12+lead+battery+NP7-12&hl=en&prmd=imvns&resnum=3&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1216&bih=683&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=9866602548677155624&sa=X&ei=2QaLTqqALoSl-gb75emJBA&ved=0CGoQ8wIwAA It says that this battery is normally used for standby things such as security alarm etc. Blith
  13. Heya, Just a quick question regarding 12v battery. Can I use this one for the Eclair NPR? http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=12+lead+battery+NP7-12&hl=en&prmd=imvns&resnum=3&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1216&bih=683&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=9866602548677155624&sa=X&ei=2QaLTqqALoSl-gb75emJBA&ved=0CGoQ8wIwAA It says it is used for standby? Anyway I tried using it with a new Eclair motor I just bought and the only thing that happens is that the red light comes on but nothing else happens. Any suggestions well appreciated, Blith
