  1. Hello all, I had finally gotten around to testing out my CP-16R a few weeks ago in New York (I rented a lens from Du-All near 34th street, great shop). Once I got the telecine back from the lab I had noticed a few unfortunate features that I had previously ran into with my late K-3. As you can see in the footage below, the mirror is out of sync with the shutter in some frames. This only seems to happen very seldom but in random intervals after turning the camera on (i.e. you cannot pinpoint an exact time after running the camera it happens at). This is my first time spooling and using this camera so it may be an error in the loading process. In addition, the clutch belt was also recently replaced by me although I don't believe that would cause the problem. There's also a noticeable amount of unsteadiness when the film runs through the gate as I had left in a steady shot of a pillar. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

  2. This is what I’ve have come to believe. Was able to do what you said and Allen key the screws off the side where this would be an issue though the cover seems to be stuck on too tight. Don’t want to pull to hard in fear of snapping the DIN connector attached to the cover. And apologies this is the only topic as of recent! I would like to contribute something involving some footage from the camera however this one is unfortunately in the hands of a person who isn’t much of a handy man/has only owned one other 16mm camera.
  3. Let me rephrase the question subbing out the pulley for the actual mechanism on the camera portion that turns the magazine via rubber pulley. From a search on YouTube there has been a series of videos I did find that explained a process on repairing the belt/clutch and I feel this may be the root of the problem (albeit I cannot repair this due to lack of tools).
  4. Hello all! So Im fairly new to this forum so apologies if this topic has been covered someplace else but no matter how much I search it doesnt appear to come up. Anyhow, I have recently come to acquire a CP-16R that for the most part works well. However I did come across one issue with the drive pulley for the magazine; even when agitated it does not move at all. Is there by chance something that needs to be engage to make it move? And if this is unfortunately not the case what would be the proper way of going about repairing the camera? Im not a particularly handy person so unless its easy to do a service may be my best bet. Thank you!
