  1. My Leicina Super shows no sign of power. It was shooting. And then stopped. I checked the power window - no power - there had been earlier. Then checked the batteries with voltmeter. No zoom, no shutter, no auto-exposure. Checked batteries are seated and cleaned contacts. Any ideas please?
  2. Hopefully soon I'll be shooting some long exposure stuff on super 8 but I'm having problems figuring out exactly how to use the Leicina ST 1 electronic control unit. Any help? I have a manual but the wording on page 9 seems very confusing. Rotary knob dot facing dot (?) range 1 range 2, I'm surprised they couldn't make it clearer. So I'm not really looking for single frame operation, but long exposure operation, but again, the manual isn't very clear. Another basic question: when they say "interval", are they referring to the time between exposures? And "scene duration" is the actual exposure time? Will the "interval" time and "scene" time always be the same?
  3. I just received a Leicina special and it appears to function from what I can tell. The film in the cart moves, etc etc. however... There's one test that's been recommended to super 8 camera buyers where you look straight into the camera and press the shutter release to see if the shutter movement is visible. This works on my rolei, my Nikon, but with my new Leicina special, I don't see that flicker when I do this test. I tried opening it up (to try the same test but from the opposite point of view) but I can't seem to get the motor running with it open. Is this normal? Or just a bad sign?
  4. Hello! I have two fantastic Super 8 camera for sale. 1) Leica Leicina Special. High end Super 8 movie camera. Mint condition. Including the ST1 Leica interval for time lapse and remote control, original leather bag. Leica Optivaron Lens 2) Beaulieu 5008 S Multispeed. Including battery, charger, leather bag, Scnheider Optivaron Lens. Message me if you are interested. I have shot a music video with both cameras recently. These cameras never let me down. The Eken and the Lumix did on the shoot...blurred, SD card crashed, battery out... I would ship it to EU. USA or overseas is maybe possible if its worth it...
  5. Hello all, I need my leicina looked at: Trigger doesn't activate camera and viewfinder is half-blocked by a loose part up front (inside the smaller 'third' lens) Thanks, Lyn
