  1. Was the lack of power problem ever uncovered. Hard to fit batteries? Check Swinging aperature? Check New cassette of Pro8mm? Check Fresh pair of 397 batteries? Check So, before i take it apart and lose 82% of the tiny screws and have to chuck it...Where does the problem seem to be in these cameras?
  2. Issues: Batteries do not activate motor even when battery checker works itermittently) ther is somethnig loose inside and it is blocking the viewfinder. Thanks, Lyn
  3. Here is the camera's innards where the problems seem to be.
  4. Hello all, I need my leicina looked at: Trigger doesn't activate camera and viewfinder is half-blocked by a loose part up front (inside the smaller 'third' lens) Thanks, Lyn
  5. 400 is too much. If I wait I a week could go up to 280$. I will add a Reflex viewfinder to what I will need. So far it's 16mm (preferred- because of the better resolution Is this correct? Reflex viewfinder Single frame/cable release capable proficient in Low light not dust sensitive
  6. The Eumig link was bad. This one should work: http://r.ebay.com/1MIRe7 How about this Nizo: http://r.ebay.com/YKNtTG
  7. Thanks, I am leaning towards 16mm as the film prices and processing seem to be comparable to S8 anyway and 16mm offers better resolution. the K3 looks like a good bet, and I am also looking at these: Eumig C16 http://r.ebay.com/pBWnAX Beaulieu 2008 http://r.ebay.com/8Opr6Z Bauer C 107 XL (8mm, but I am told that 'XL' in camera model numbers indicate low light capabilities. Is this correct?) http://r.ebay.com/FxW4iE Bolex (I like the side mounted viewfinder) http://r.ebay.com/36iOuo
  8. I am looking at a C16. Are you still enjoying yours? I am a landscaper and want to film some of installations. SO the internal light meter and single frame capapbility is what I want. Thanks, Lyn
  9. I'm looking at these http://www.ebay.com/itm/261403155730?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Bauer C 107 XL Super 8 Movie Camera Macro Neovaron 7-45mm 1:1.2 (I am told Bauer's excel in low light) Beaulieu 2008 Super 8MM Camera w/Angenieux 8-64MM. f/1.9 Zoom Lens http://www.ebay.com/itm/271384799135?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT and here is the only K3 I found (on Ebay, that is) is it a good one?

  10. Thanks for the quick reply I already have a still camera. I install water features so I will be filming those, I also would like to use the video for shooting animals and such in the landscapes and I am looking for that 1970's home movie film look
  11. I have decided to enter the realm of film. I am a horticulturist/landscaper and I will be shooting plants and landscapes (no further than a 'street scene') SO, I would like: single frame/cable release cabability Electronic Stellar resolution and durability (In case it falls off a mini tripod when shooting a rock or leaf- I don't want the camera to shatter into a million pieces. Also I live in wyoming and the wind blows something fierce so it can't be a dust magnet) approx 100.00 for a camera lenses and lens caps I decided against 8mm because the 11sec/roll of film would drive me nuts it seems that for: resolution and detail I would want a 16mm for portability I would want an 8mm What i've read so far recommend Bolex and Canon Any thoughts? Thanbks
