  1. Currently, my 5008 MS is in Sweden with Björn being serviced, re-celled, and having a Angenieux 8-64mm collimated - it's a lens I'm very happy with as I've always found it to be sharper than the Schneider 6-66mm. That said, I've recently been offered a chance to buy a 10mm 1.8 retrofocus Angenieux which I've seen be compared to the Cinegon 10mm! But is it worth buying this and then paying for it to be collimated if I've already got a 8-64mm?
  2. Hello! I have a Beaulieu R16 with a re-celled battery, an old original charger and a Tenergy smart charger. Do you think I can cut the smart charger wire and add the din plug of the old charger to it to be able to charge the battery? otherwise is it possible with the old charger only to charge the new battery re-celled ? thank you

  4. Got this lovely little Beaulieu 2008s off of ebay. Trying to find batteries for the thing, and to my understanding it is an earlier "A" model because it has only 1 contact in the middle and one on the side for the light meter, instead of the "B" model which has the three pronged contact. It came with the 4 original 1.2v batteries, but no kind of battery container. From my understanding and the research I've done, the 2008 never came with a battery container, and all I need to do is find a set of batteries that fit inside the battery holder or hook up an external battery pack. If there'
  5. Hi, I am selling 3 Beaulieu Cameras. 1.) Beaulieu R8 reflex control - seems like ist fully functional! - what you see is what you get! 2.)

  7. Hi all I am new here .... So thank you in advance for your help. I have a Beaulieu 5008 which works to close (even the batteries) but I would like to modify 2 or 3 things on it are screws and the optics has of the play at the level of the camera. I saw a repair manual existed and I wanted to know if someone who has it could give it to me. Thank you (Google translation ;-()
  8. HI All - I have an old Beaulieu 5008s I bought used back about 1983. I used it a few times, but then it's sat in a closed case for the past 30 or so years. Battery's completely dead and won't charge. I've been looking around to see if anyone can recell the battery or if there's a DIY page that explains it, but haven't found anything so far, and the leads on this site are all fairly old. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! Tim Walton
  9. Hi Everyone, My name is Will and I am a director DP. Before I get redirection comments, I want to say I am starting this thread because after a few weeks of combing through past forum posts, many of the topics/resources I am searching for are extremely dated an the websites I get directed to no longer exist. So I am now interested in finding links back to some of the outlets, or finding the individuals who can help me find where the Super 8 outlets I am looking for have gone. I am not looking for low budget tips, workarounds or DIY (unless that is a last resort). I am a fairly expe
  10. An optical behemoth and legend has been acquired by an American friend. Jos. Schneider Optische Werke GmbH originally manufactured this incredible Schneider-Kreuznach 6-180mm f/1.8 Variogon lens (30x) made for Beaulieu 6008/7008/9008 series Super 8 cameras. I was only aware of it's existence as a prototype vis a vis the attached lens data sheets originally supplied by Schneider. Apparently a few were produced for the German market. Note the attached Beaulieu Lens Control Unit (LCU) regarding iris/zoom and the Beaulieu breech-lock. There are two kinds of Beaulieu breech-lock mounts,
  11. Hi, I hope someone can help answer a few questions. I just received a very mint condition looking Beaulieu 4008ZM with the Angenieux 8-64mm. This was won in an online live-bid auction a month or so ago (a large number of Super 8 cameras from a collector). It looks great but I don't have a clue if it works as it didn't come with a battery (not even a non-working one). Here is what I've discovered: - I can't see an image thru the viewfinder. From the posts I've read I am presuming it is because the shutter is in the down position. - I need to purchase some sort of battery. Looking on the
  12. Hey guys, I recently bought a Bealuieu 4008 ZM II . It looks very nice but I havent found a cheap external battery so it´s not powered yet. But U did some modifying on it (longer zoomstick, b+w filter etc.) I als deatached the automatic diaphragm system to get a more "pure" and manual feeling. But now when I look into the viewfinder the picture is not very sharp and when I try to focus with the focus ring nothing changes --- still the same unsharp image. Also when I look into the lens an move the focus ring nothing seems to move. Its kinda sad because the Schneider Optivaron 1.8/ 6-66mm
  13. Hello folks :) , I recently bought a beautiful Beaulieu 4008 ZM II from the german camera museum. It´s in a great shape and was also tested by the seller, but now everytime i look in the viewfinder i see the lower half very milky and the upper half very dark, almost black. I have read in an other forum that its maybe a shutter problem , but I can open and close the shutter on the lens so thats strange.´But on the other hand i havent bought an external battery yet so i couldnt run the motor actually. And also When i look into the viewfinder theres a crooked stroke coming out of the right h
  14. Hi! I'd like to sell my Pro8mm "Classic Pro" with max 8 modification. It will come with the 8-64 zoom, a Cosimcar Pentax 6mm 1.2 prime, and the single lithium ion cell/charger. This camera has seen probably 10 reels since purchased from Pro8mm. It's as new as it was from the company. It's in beautiful hammertone finish. I have some Hoya color correction and ND filters I'll throw in too. This is a camera I will miss, but I have to save up for a relocation so it must go. I'd like $1750.00. That's a $940.00 discount from what Pro8mm currently charges. Here is the Pro8mm
  15. Hey! So I am really excited because I got my grandads BEAulieu 4008 ZMII for Christmas. The thing is that it hasnt been used in 15 years. He took great care of it but the batteries are not in great shape. Does anybody now about where and how to get new batteries? Or any good servicing in London as well to look over it? Any help will be appreciated. I have shot a ton on a Bolex but I'm new to 16mm! x
  16. Hello, I have the Beaulieu 2008 Reflex Control model with the single contact in the center and the ground contact on the side. It was supplied with a wire to connect it to a battery. I'm not sure where it's from, but it does say "Made in Germany", so I'm thinking it could be an old model from Chambless or Wittnauer. The other side of the wire has a 6-pin DIN connector with the center pin broken off. There are a red and yellow wire each soldered to a separate contact, and a green and blue wire soldered together to another contact. I'm wanting to make a battery pack for this, either
  17. Hello All, I have a Beaulieu R16 with 12-120mm Angenieux lens that I've recently started using. It's been great so far, but I'm having quite a bit of trouble trying to stabilise the camera/image. It's fine, or rather, the camera shake is not particularly noticeable on handheld shots and pans, but for stationary shots I'm getting a lot of camera shake. I'm using a pretty heavy duty Vinten video tripod with floor spreaders, so this I thought would be good enough to stabilise the camera itself, but there's still a really noticeable (to the point of distraction) amount of camera shake.
  18. All the Beaulieu cameras have face plates that are glued on. Often the glue is dry and the plates fall off. Does anyone have a recommendation for the type of glue to use when reattaching them? They need to be removed to service the camera, so I can't use something that won't allow them to be popped off if needed. thanks
  19. I came across an old forum in another website talking about using a Tobin TXM-20Ba crystal sync motor with a Beaulieu 4008 and nothing more. The user only stated the motor cost $495 and it worked well not only with the beaulieu but also with other film cameras. Nobody really added to the forum as far as the noise level of the motor (believe it or not I have come across crystal sync motors that are so loud it is absolutely pointless to record audio) or where I could even buy one. After digging around on google I came up with nothing so I figured this would be a good place to ask. Does anybo
  20. My Beaulieu R16 runs fine on external power. I just bought a newly-recelled 1,000 mA grip battery. It won't run on the grip battery. Checking the battery on the meter on the side of the R16, the needle only deflects half-way. I tested the battery with a multimeter. The outer ring shows about 8 volts, and the inner ring shows about 4 volts. Since the camera's meter shows half power, and one ring of the battery shows half power, I suspected that one of the wires in the Power Grip is bad. I switched to 'resistance' on the multimeter. Looking at the plug that plugs into the camera bod
  21. I dug out the R16 to play with it a little bit, and the automatic aperture motor is a bit noisy. It sounds like its bearing is bad/going bad, or it needs lubrication or something. Is this something I could service myself? Probably not, eh? Who services R16s in the U.S. nowadays?
  22. I've got one of the Beaulieu 4008 Pro8mm Max8 modified cameras, but I'm noticing that the battery life is pretty bad - It's supposed to last "50 rolls" but I'm barely getting through one. I think these are NiCads, which sucks, because of memory issues. I'm wondering if anyone has the schematics for these battery packs that I might look at, because I think I want to build my own. The way it's constructed, to take it apart is to basically ruin it (looks like it's basically a cluster of sub-c cells stuffed inside a big heat shrink tube. So there's no easy way to open it without destroying the cas
  23. So I was thinking about getting a Beaulieu R16. Looks to be a fun camera, and they can all fit a magazine on top. However, I've been told that they can only hold 200 foot daylight spools, which I haven't seen for sale on line. So here are my questions. If I had empty 200 foot spools, could I halve a 400 foot reel from a core in a darkroom? Well, I know it's possible but my concern is knowing when I've reached the 200 foot mark. How would I measure that in a darkroom? The other question is probably more of a camera question, but if I wanted to for whatever reason could I use a 100 foo
  24. So, I finally got hold of a Beaulieu 4008 ZM II for a friend's production but despite working perfectly, being pristine, with a crystal clear Schneider Kreuznach 1.8 / 6-66 zoom and even a working rechargeable battery... I DON'T LIKE USING IT! The main problem is that I adore shooting Super 8 handheld and I just don't feel comfortable holding the 4008, as I struggle to get a good grip on the tiny handle. It works like a dream and is nice to operate in many ways but I feel like I'm almost balancing the camera uncomfortably on my hands rather than actually holding it whilst shooting. I know a
  25. Hey all, So I contacted Pro8mm about the picture below featuring a dual eyepiece from a 4008. They said it was a custom customer accessory and they didn't have or know how to find these. Anyone out there know where to get one of these things?
