  1. I bought this less than a year ago, fully serviced from Visual Products. Worked perfectly and is essentially in the exact same condition. Only ran 27 rolls through it and never had a problem. Kept clean and well maintained. Only selling it because I finished the project I bought it for. Here's a list of what is included. CP16R Super16 Camera Body in PL Mount (1) HD Video Tap (1) S16 Ground Glass (1) Reflex Viewfinder w/ Eyecup (3) PLC-4A Magazines (3) WAV NC-4 20V Onboard Batteries (1) Battery Charger (1) Angenieux 15-150mm T3.1 Zoom Lens (1) Lens Shade w/ Step-Up Retaining Ring (1) Set of (3) Tiffen Professional Series 9 Filters I'm asking $6500 plus $200 for shipping ($6700 total) which is what I payed for it. It's an awesome camera and I wish I could keep it, don't need to make a profit, just want it to go to someone who could use it and care for it. Message me on here for any questions or offers. I can take more pics if there's anything specific you'd like to see! BOX-lowrez.jp2 CAM-lowrez.jp2
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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!):
  6. 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?
  7. 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 included), when I jerked the camera down because I was about to stop rolling, it briefly goes back to normal. For what it’s worth this was maybe 1/3rd through the roll. And in between the second shot and the third, I shot some b-roll of the bright sun reflecting off a lake where I had to stop down all the way because it was so bright. The Problem: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KUKdxBacbVwR22kFg6gFnWb2mKLu1OQb/view?usp=sharing The second problem is this weird flash of light for a frame or two at the beginning and end of every single shot. It seems to happen pretty regularly around 64 frames before I stop rolling and 64 frames after I begin rolling (this is a compilation video of the phenomenon). It happens every single time. This problem is a little less worrysome (I can just let the take roll for a few seconds at the beginning and end of every take to neutralize it) but it’s still a little concerning. The Problem: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MdJqbxcvYibzJFvClUxcYczGC_5Upb34/view?usp=sharing Thank you for any help you can give!
  8. I just got one of these too and it sure seems parfocal. Is there a way to test this?
