  1. I rented out an Nikon R10 for that once. Incredible footage from that machine when using proper film and skilled people in a studio. No need to find another camera.
  2. If the Beaulieu cost like 200 film equivalents. The new camera could be considered cheap as it costs 100 film equivalent. Or possibly film is just as affordable.
  3. Here and there they may be a professional filmer with plenty budget but this is going nowhere. Likely they are not going to sell more than from the earlier Logmar which only sold out the beta-serie and only after a long time. BTW NATO is into setting standards for grip equipment?
  4. Never experienced that. The only thing is to use the Foma bleach as single shot. I tested it using a second time immediately after 1st use but it bleached incomplete/poorly. Very artistic but not good.
  5. seems I missed this post 🙂 More or less you can't over-bleach or over-clear. The foma reversal kit works like a charm. The black matter is the anti-reflection layer on the back. This needs to be removed. The Foma bleach does this and produces the brown grit from that.
  6. A nice long list of contents! Graphic design as super as ever 🙂
  7. The rear part is completely different. Is has a different retro-lens/setting and the tube is shorter. Finding an original Leicina edition is the simplest way to go.
  8. Nope, the M flange is way too much forward. I.e. the C lens can't produce sharp images then. Is there a C-lens on M-mount adapter. It would only make sense for lenses without retro-projection and then in a macro set-up.
  9. Clearly it is. The camera shorts the terminals in the connecting point. Take it from there. Best were to find a Sony Walkman with recording opion or a MiniDisc recorder withproper input. Possibly a Digital recording thing wiht a simple iinput exits. I would not start a project of constructing a digital apparatus using Arduine and what more. You will never win back the time and effort. simplest were to record just using a shart ahead, a clapper thing and stop after the scena was filmed. Good luck.
  10. INdeed, the physical apperance is less important 🙂 The cameras supplies a shorting switch. It connects the terminals when running. On classic taperecorders the remote was a switch in serial with the switches in the recorder.
  11. The manual states that the connector can control a tape recorder. In that era it means it will short/connect the terminals when the camera runs. This would be connected to a remote control 2.5mm input of a recorder. On single frame it is fairly useless. ALthough the test flash demonstrates that the camera is working properly. The trick is now to find a recorder which takes such a control or fix two wires inside a recorder or existing remote control with a button when pushed makes it record 🙂
  12. That is what I suggest too. All this overdesigning is not going to pay back. With so many hours spent you are never going to win back over manual control. Good luck.
  13. Apparently the camera has a shorting/making-switch behind the flash contact. Your intended recorder has apparently a serial protocol on its input. So you need to fabricate a circuit/controller which sends proper commands to start and stop the recorder. All from a distance so with conditions 🙂 Good luck and don't short any powersupplies.
