  1. In case anyone comes across this topic and is curious to the answers (I still haven't gotten the film back from this shoot for the actual results) but my internet searchings told me... The fixed shutter doesn't matter much when switching between frame rates. The exposure adjustment for 36fps is to add (open up) a full stop.
  2. So I will be shooting a music video in slow motion (36fps) on my CP-16R. It has a fixed shutter so I can't adjust the speed like you would if you were shooting slow motion with a digital camera. Was wondering if this has any negative/specific effects on the final image. My other question is, since the film is going through the gate faster, to what degree do I adjust my exposure? Obviously I'll need more light, but how much more?
  3. It's a CP-16R. Yes, sorry, the video assist is installed and was part of the package (I actually bought it from Visual Products). I guess I don't even quite understand what I'm asking, ha. Where would I go about getting a video screen that would work with these connectors?
  4. I was hoping to get some suggestions on best brands and places to purchase. I don't really need anything super high quality - I'm actually pretty okay with using the viewfinder but when I'm working with a crew, it can be limiting being the only person seeing what we're shooting. Plus I think my focusing would be sharper with an external monitor. Here's an image of the connectors I have on the camera (not really sure what these are, ha, if someone could illuminate me that would be great!):
  5. Sounds like it was the viewfinder then. I didn't even know that covering it up is a thing. The little eyepiece even fell off at one point and I didn't even bother to put it back on. Weird that it only affected the 100ft or so in the middle of the roll. So what's the best way to deal with this? Keep the viewfinder covered between takes?
  6. Finally shot my first test roll with the refurbished & serviced CP-16 I recently bought. It’s Super 16mm modified and I’m shooting Kodak, 500T. It’s worth noting that the film is expired and although I don’t know how old it is, it might be very old (3-15 years). I also got a flat-scan when I had it processed. The first problem seems to be some kind of light leak or something. Midway through the first shot, all of a sudden the image gets very faded and blue. It continued through the entire following shot. Strangely enough, at the end of the second shot (and the third shot that is incl
  7. I just got one of these too and it sure seems parfocal. Is there a way to test this?
  8. Finally shot my first roll of 16mm on my new camera. I'm ready to get it developed and am trying Video & Film Solutions in MD. I'm in Oregon and will need to ship it there. Anybody have any suggestions as to how to do this safely and securely?
