I have been looking for a nice and cheap 16mm camera to start with. I don't mind if I have to do some work on it to get it running, as long as it's do-able. the requirements are that it needs to be capable of getting footage that looks good by todays standards, should be between 100-600$ lower the better, (I have to be able to pay for film after buying it). If it doesn't have a motor is it all that hard to make one? will it look like super 8 If shoot with it? Is there any thing I should know? What other cameras should I be looking for? It's things like this that make me aviod a bolex.
I've recently acquired a 2c with a constant speed, and a variable speed motor, and now my question is the best way to power them. I was told 16 volts is the appropriate type for this camera. One of my Aaton batteries happens to be running 15.6 volts and seems to power the constant speed motor fine, but for high speed stuff, would a 24 volt motor be a problem? 12/24v batteries seem way more common. Thanks.
