  1. Hi, I've recently come into possession of a Som Berthiot Pan Cinor 38-150 in Arri Standard mount. Has anyone used one before, what are it's characteristics, what time period is it from? If love to hear any opinions or info. Cheers - Aren
  2. Surely someone has a Geiger Counter and can test some eyepieces to enlighten us.
  3. Hi, I'm struggling to find a 400 foot magazine for the Arriflex 16m that will ship to Australia. It looks similar to the 16bl magazine but has slightly different drive gears. If you have one you'd be willing to sell and send overseas, let me know. (I'd also be interested in the 1200 foot mag if anyone has one) Thanks - Aren
  4. I don't know that it'll reduce radiation but I've heard of people reducing yellowing in optics, particularly lenses by having them in sunlight for prolonged periods. Maybe leave it in windowsill for a few weeks...
  5. Although the Angeniex Eclair NPR viewfinder does fit the CP-16R, from my experience, it doesn't work properly on that camera and isn't optically suited to it. Has anyone had better luck with it on that camera?
  6. Thank you, 18-20v, I'll remember that range. Since posting this topic, I've created a power supply using a battery shell and a 19v laptop charger, in seems to run quite nicely and the Crystal Sync warning light doesn't stay on which is a good sign.
  7. Hi, I have a cinema products CP-16R and I was wondering if it would run off a DC power supply of 19v, 2.5A connected to the battery terminals. I know it's supposed to be 20v but maybe it can still run off of 19v. What are your thoughts? Thanks - Aren
  8. Good to hear of another 16mm camera being saved. If you aren't doing anything with the trash magazines it came with, at least put them on eBay or something so they're still in circulation, I'm sure someone will fix them. This was posted a while ago now, any updates on fixing the camera?
  9. No problem, I assumed you worked it out by now but thought it could help other people in the future. You mentioned it was modified by Les Boscher, did he do the Super16 and PL conversion? How's the camera been since your modifications?
  10. Hi, I'm looking to buy a crystal sync motor for my Eclair NPR that won't cost me an arm and a leg. My NPR currently has a perfectone constant speed 25fps motor that only holds sync for about 30 seconds. Since I'm not recording sound with a Nagra, I'll need a crystal sync motor. If you have a spare motor you're willing to part with, let me know what you have and maybe we can work something out. Thanks - Aren
  11. Hi Ruben, There are two places you should find the serial number. The first spot is along the side of the horizontal handle at the top of of the camera, the other is behind the top lens turret with lens removed, at least that's the case with my one. I hope this was of some help.
  12. That Devry Halloween test came out really nice. What camera model and what lens did you use?
  13. I'm no expert but from looking at photos of the two, I'd assume so. Which Konvas model do you have?
  14. Hi, There's only a few posts that seem to mention the Cineflex, a US Army copy of the Arri 35. Has anyone here used one before? Is the movement inside more or less the same design or is it quite different and can it take magazines bigger than 400'? I'm also curious about how it performs, would it have good, stable registration? Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you
