  1. Any recommendations on where to possibly send it to get fixed? I'm not exactly the most versed when it comes to dealing with electronics. Plus, I dont even know what amperage the camera uses, just the voltage. I was lucky enough when i purchased the camera that it came with 3 rolls of pre striped double 8mm film (unfortunately Kodachrome II, so I'll be lucky to get a semi ok b&w image out of it.) But if the film fails, the stripe on it will be good enough to see is the audio circuit/head works. As for a source of extended recording film, I know there are some places in the EU that offer extended film loads (Orwo and Kahl films if I remember correctly) in both 100ft loads for b&w negatives, and 400ft spools of print films in double 8mm.

  3. I just recently picked up a Fairchild 900 Series Standard 8mm camera for relatively cheap secondhand. I couldn't find a sub-thread specifically for double 8mm for I figured I'd post it here. It's a single-system Sound camera from 1967 (I think?) for the double 8mm format. It came with an external magazine for up to a 200ft size film role of double 8mm. The optics appear in fine order but I cant seem to get power to the camera. It's supposed to run off of a rechargeable battery in the handgrip. The wallmount and camera uses a 5 prong Din cable to connect the battery to the camera, and to charge the battery from the wall. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about looking into this problem? I know it's a bit of a rare camera, but any help would be appreciated. I'll include pictures of it below. I did manage to get the camera manual with it.
  4. I've got a temporary solution until I can save up enough money to buy some new cells (joys of being a college student). I bought a slightly larger than cell phone size power bank that I can clip on my belt. It has a wall outlet on it so I can just use the ac adapter I have. I've been looking at getting the cells from Duall camera's website
  5. Got around to charging the second battery. It powers the camera, but the red sync light stays on the entire time it is running. With the power supply, the sync light turns on for a second or two and shuts off. Any idea what might cause that?
  6. Is anyone aware of the major differences between E-3 and E-4 Color processing? I am gonna be running a few experiments this summer with a ton of old stock ektachrome I have and I have an old "How to Process Movie Film" Handbook detailing the entire E-3 process (step times, formulas for the hardner, etc). I am well aware this may be a fools errand but I want to try just for the heck of it. However, a good chunk of the ektachrome I have is made for the E-4 process. I have some for the E-3, but I was curious if I can use the E-4 stock I have in an E-3 process, and what the major differences there are that would change the process significantly. Thanks for any help!
  7. I've got about 4 rolls of old 16mm 7250 ektachrome VNF film. I know it is long out of date and I'm intending to get it cross processed in an E-6 kit in a G-3 tank. I intend to process the film without pushing it if possible (just to minimize anything going haywire since i am relatively new to home processing film). I understand there are some differences between the vnf and e6 processes, which is why I want to keep the variables during processing to a minimum. Now that being said, this film is in the older style 7250 box that has the color bars on the front (I believe the box/can was redesigned in the 90's to exclude the color bars on the front.) so I know it's from either the 70's or 80's as a general ballpark. As for how it's been stored, I've had it cold stored for the past year or so. Before that I am not sure so I am assuming that it was stored in a closet at best. That being said, has anyone experimented with adjusting the ISO/DIN rating for this kind and age of film for shooting to compensate for any fogging due to age to produce a better image? Many thanks.
  8. Another Update: Was able to open up the camera. The rubber teeth on the clutch belt have completely disintegrated, but other than that, everything appears in order internally. The only other issue I might be running into might be the batteries I have may not be holding a charge. Once I get the belt in place, if anyone has some leads on any batteries for a CP-16 with good cells in it for a reasonable price, please let me know!
  9. Ok, update on the camera. I managed to get my hands on a battery charger and AC power supply (thanks Andrew!) and managed to test the camera. The camera function with an exception to two things. I ran an old tri-X short end through it with the camera open to make sure it would go through the guiding mechanism correctly. Aside from the sync light going off for a second when the camera started, it stayed off and the film ran through the mechanism smoothly. The only issue with the camera now is the external white wheel and the footage counter doesn't move while running film. I will probably not be able to look at the camera until the end of the week due to school, but if anyone can come up with any ideas as to why those would not be working, it would be really helpful! I haven't had a chance to take off the external casing of the camera to look at the inside of it, but when I do this weekend, I will be sure to post photos to see if anyone can find anything out of place, thanks for all the help already!
  10. This was posted in a different thread, but I wasn't sure what section this post would belong under better and I think it would belong better here. "I recently found a 16mm CP-16R movie camera at a junk store for $250. Cosmetically it's in nice shape, optics seem to work fine, and it came with a few rechargeable batteries, and a 400' film magazine. However the drive belt that attaches to the magazine and camera is missing, and it did not come with a charger or power supply. Does anyone know of any suitable replacements for the belt and charger/is willing to sell those? The only parts like that I've found has been in cp16 camera sets on ebay that cost 2 grand, something as which I can not afford. I am well aware this camera might not even function properly, but I'd rather find out then let it sit here. Thank you for your time." i would also like to add that this camera i found out that this camera was well cared for by its previous owner (according to information asked by the store owner when he bought it) but it has sat some time since about the mid 2000s. It seems like this will be a project camera, so is there any servicing that anyone would recommend i do to it before i operate it? Thanks

  12. Looking for a blank (or unused or partially exposed film) 200ft cartridge for a reasonable price, but I am negotiable! I'm working on a project for my high school for my sister in marching band, and I'm looking to need about a 10min option for recording onto super 8. I've tried to do this last year with 4 standard carts, but it took too long to change out the carts and I lost some footage I needed by doing so. I have some kodak vision 3 in a 200ft film can on a core(light sealed), but I need a cartridge that I can make into a re loadable one! Anyone got one they are willing to part with?
