  1. I was recently loaned this lens: it looks like the same size as a c-mount but it won't screw into my Beaulieu 6008 S. What type of adapter would I need to get it to fit a c-mount body?
  2. what c-mount lens for a super 8 would be able to provide me with the distortion similar to the super16 footage in this video @ 00:18 my super 8 footage would be stretched to fit a 16:9 sequence if that makes a difference
  3. yeah why didn't i think of that... the camera's already back on it's way to bjorn. he's taking care of it. just wanted to see if anybody else had experienced this problem.
  4. Found a link to a .pdf to the 6008 s manual online posted below: right click to download http://mrelmo.co.uk/manuals/8mm/beaulieu6008user.pdf. I got my 6008 s today from Bjorn. I filmed a few clips in 24p then wanted to get one on 56fps and now that is the only setting that it will record on. It won't film on any other setting. I know the motor isn't broken/fried because of this but was wondering how I can get the camera to film in 24fps again? Has anybody else experienced this problem?
  5. Never mind, went with the Schneider instead. Does anybody have a .pdf of the 6008 s instruction manual in English? I can only find one for the super online.
  6. does anybody have any footage filmed with the Beaulieu-Zoom Makro 1,4/6,9-55 on the 6008 s?
  7. Should this be indicated to the lab for processing that i've pulled the film? or is it such a small amount it doesn't matter? I have read on here kodak vision3 50D should be overexposed by a stop or two for tighter grain. Thank you for answering my other questions too. Definitely helps.

EDIT: as for the 4k I had seen super 8 scanned at 4k in this video mixed with 720p and mistook it for 16mm. I asked the filmer what 16mm camera he used and he said it was super 8 scanned at 4k and cropped to fit the 16:9 timeline. He used a Nizos56 on what I imagine was kodak vision3 50D example at 1:07 and scattered throughout the video: http://www.thrashermagazine.com/video/most-recent/sebo-walker-s-eight-days-in-nyc-part?jwsource=cl
  8. Hey I'm new to super 8 cinematography but not unfamiliar with old cameras that need repairs. for example in skateboarding videography the Sony VX1000 is over 20 years old but is still used by many professionals and can only be trustfully repaired by Kerry Edwards at Video Electronics. Lurking these forums before making an account it seems Bjorn in Seweden is the equivalent for Beaulieus. That being said I am already planning on sending a Beaulieu 6008 s that I buy to him. My questions about this camera I could not find searching the forums. They are: - How long does a CLA last? when would I need to have it serviced again? - I see on the beaulieu 6008 pro there is a switch on the back to change it from 24(ntsc) to 25 (pal), is there the same switch on the beaulieu 6008 s? if not what is it's native format and would there be a problem if it's 25(pal) since I'm located in the states? all footage i will be having scanned at 4k.. don't know if that makes a difference or if that's something I need to tell the lab? - The stock I'll be using is kodak vision3 50D. on the asa dial of the 6008 s it goes from 40 - 80 with 2 notches in between. which one would be for asa 50? i've also read to overexpose the 50D by a stop or two. is this the common practice? - Lastly is a Beaulieu 6008 s a good camera? or would it be better to invest in something else.. I would love to see footage from one scanned at 4k but I can only find footage from the 4008zm series. is that camera better for any reason? the batteries seem like a pain as opposed to just AA's thanks for any help
