Hi all, this is my first post here. Over winter break I got bored and decided to try learning some CAD to make a new lomo like spiral tank for 16mm (or in my case double 8), because the results from a Morse G3 just aren't cutting it. Its by no means refined, but in theory it should hold 100' of 16mm film. I was going to do a test 3D print at a local makerspace, but then the pandemic moved in and that plan kinda fell apart. I looked online at a few places that do prototype printing, and the cheapest I found was about $110 including shipping, which is a bit much for me at the moment, but is still cheaper than a lomo on ebay! The picture is of the bottom piece. The film would fit into a slit in the center (you can't quite see it in the pic), then you'd put the top on, use a plain old nut and bolt to hold the two together, and then begin spinning the reel assembly clockwise to wind your film on. I wanted to make it fit inside a 5 gallon bucket, but its a bit too wide, 30 cm in diameter to be exact, so some kind of container would need to be found. If anyone has access to a 3D printer and wants to give this a go, I'd love to see how it turns out. I'll put the STL files up in another post because they're too big to attach here. Let me know what you think!
Hello, sometimes you can find some Cine-Kowa Lenses for 16mm, for example the 1,1 / 25mm in Arri mount. I think, this are lenses made for the Arri SR cameras. (I think CP sold them as cinema-product-lenses too) What do you know about them ? Some people say, they were "a kind of copy" of the Zeiss HS lenses. Is that right ? Michael
