  1. Yeah, that's it for sure. Production ramped up at the same time schools/students were placing their fall orders and that's why 16mm film is hard to get.
  2. Check it out: https://www.ebay.com/itm/203616403541 Thanks! Aaron
  3. Should be good and grainy. https://www.ebay.com/itm/203613187413 Thanks for looking, Aaron
  4. These are brand new rolls purchased for a test shoot that got canceled and now I no longer need them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/203613179930 Thanks, Aaron
  5. I did. That motor is no longer in inventory.
  6. Please DM me if you have one for sale. Thanks! Aaron
  7. Relisted! https://www.ebay.com/itm/203596495082?hash=item2f674bf8ea:g:uVUAAOSwJ1lgoueQ Thanks! Aaron
  8. Roy, It was Visual Products in Wellington, Ohio. I recommend contacting them for pricing and turnaround time. Aaron
  9. Still interested in buying one - thanks!
  10. You might consider having your camera converted to a 12v, 4-pin XLR power plug. That's what I did, and I am able to use a belt clipped battery like this one: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1048193-REG/bescor_fp_12vatm_12v_lithium_ion_battery.html This is what I use to power my camera for 100-foot loads. Wooden Camera also sells a V mount battery plate and a D tap to 4-pin XLR cable. https://woodencamera.com/products/d-tap-to-4pin-xlr-female-straight-20?variant=13109053784137&currency=USD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2f7osPGu8gIVlrWzCh12iwUUEAQYAyABEgK2hPD_BwE
  11. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. They were very helpful in determining what might have been keeping my Arri 16s from operating correctly. The issue turned out to be with the internal plunger/switch. Over the years a notch developed in the plastic switch fork inside the body of the camera, so the plunger was not making contact with what it needed to, and therefore the camera wouldn't run. The folks at Visual Products were able to fix my camera very quickly and I am heading out to film with it tomorrow.
  12. Yes, I did, but the configuration of my camera differs from the one in this manual. Mine does not have a buckle switch or the manual override on the door. I've uploaded some pictures so you can see the difference. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hclx9nli9j05pkz/AABr9kXwVuJxABFYvFbvKeZua?dl=0 Does my camera have a buckle switch or override somewhere else?
  13. -- and I am looking for ideas as to why. I have an older model 16s, the kind with the pressure rollers on an arm, the belt exposed inside and without a buckle switch. The camera was CLA'd at Super 16, Inc. last October, then converted to 12v power in February, and worked perfectly for a test in March, then on three separate occasions in June and early July when I ran 10, 100-foot rolls through it. The camera sat for a couple weeks and when I got it out to clean and test if for a shoot later this month it would not work. I tried two separate batteries, still nothing. The camera will not operate, and it does not matter which switch I use. So, what's my next step in diagnosing what's wrong with this camera? Is there something obvious that I am missing? Is this an issue with the electrical system? Is there a cutoff switch that might have tripped that I am missing? The motor isn't frozen - the inching knob turns freely - but should I be shopping for a new motor? Thanks for your help. Aaron
  14. I have just come into possession of an Eyemo. It's #2963, one of the earlier types that has a latch on the front that sets the speed. This camera winds and runs - at 12, 16 and 24 fps - but I'd like to know what basic maintenance I should be doing to keep the camera in operating condition. I do see the two wells for oil on the sprockets inside the camera - are there any other places that I should oil? I don't have the tools to safely disassemble the camera and service the spring (which seems to run smoothly and at a constant speed) but is there anything I can do lubricate it from the outside? Is there anything else I should check to make sure the camera is operating correctly before I shoot a test? Thanks, Aaron
