I love this DS8 camera and especially its subtle but contrasty Jupiter lens. So, it was extremely disappointing to find the 5 Fomapan R100 films I shot during a 3 week road trip around regional NSW and Victoria came out completely overexposed except a few hopeful scenes shot indoors. Upon close examination it turned out that the aperture was permanently open atf1.9 and the aperture adjusting tab had no effect. One of the things I love about these Soviet cameras is that once opened up (simple) the mechanisms are straightforward and, in this case, designed to be fixed! Step 1. Unscrew the selenium cell's retaining ring and remove 2 screws holding the cover plate. No need to remove the ASA selector knob. Step 2. Remove the 4 deep set screws holding the metal front cover. This lifts clear away with no wires, etc. Step 3. Notice that the cog supposed to engage with the teeth on the lens that adjusts the diaphragm has drifted out of contact. Step 4. Loosen the two screws that retain the cog base plate - this allows the cog to swing in and out. Step 5. Set the f stop adjuster to fully open (f1.9) and manually move the "toothed ring" on the lens barrel to fully open the diaphragm. Step 6. Swing the cog in to engage with the teeth on the lens barrel. Step 7. Tighten the two screws securing the cog base plate. Step 8. Re-assemple. What a joy. By the way, I found what appears to be an exhaustive service manual for Soviet movie cameras here http://www.sovietcamera.su/src/Remont_kinokamer.pdf.
I am selling one of my Canon DS-8 Cameras. It is in amazing condition, always kept in its case. Everything works perfecty. - Both the manual and auto exposure setting work - The optics are clear with no haze or fungi - All speeds are strong, smooth and constant - The battery pack has all shiny clean contacts - All levers and dials are easy to turn, flip and press This comes with the original case in very good condition. The manual is in perfect condition too and the original Canon metal lens cap is with the camera. Other things like a remote, 58 -62mm step ring, 62mm Canon pinch cap and a filter also are included. It is currently on eBay for $475 OBO But I would take $400 plus cost of Fed Ex ground. https://www.ebay.com/itm/202376521930?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
Hi, I'm after a Canon Zoom DS8 I can canibalise for spare parts. If anybody has a broken down one they want to get rid of for a few pounds and is based in the UK let me know. A 16 mmm scoopic might also have the parts I want. Thanks
