  1. Likely it has a trimmer to set the speed properly. The question is if the 24 fps is in reach of the trimmer. Otherwise things get more difficult. When opening this camera isn't enough difficulty 🙂 . Other cameras have been modified from 18 to 24 fps simply by adjusting the speed-regulator. No need to swap the motor or to soup up the power of the batteries 🙂
  2. This happens rather often with these Silvery Nizo. Some components detoriate in the trigger/run circuit, likely a electrolyte capacitor. A trick is to set to single frame and have on a intervalometer (or manual) and have it triggered for several hunderd frames. Somehow this will revive the component.
  3. I am using my cartridges from stock. Mostly. How real are these troubles with today Kodak cartridges? Haven't they found the problem yet and resolved it? The cause of super-8 jitter is either the cartridge is feeding to difficult or the pick-up drive of the camera has its friction too tight. Or are there other causes?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. A nice long list of contents! Graphic design as super as ever 🙂
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
