  1. Planning to shoot a project with a Nizo 6080. I was wondering if it was possible to somehow rig a bullet camera or something of the sort to use as a video assist. I've seen stuff on the internet from 10 years about about how to do this with Beaulieus, but nothing about Nizos or posted recently. Anyone have any experience with this, or know which bullet cam models or rigging methods might work with a Nizo viewfinder? Preferably without spending a ton of money or a lot of complex engineering to build it. Doesn't need to be fancy, just functional - I’m a student self-funding the project.
  2. I just found out I can get access to a Nizo 156 XL, figured I could do something with film once. I have a few questions regarding certain details since there's no manual online to be found. - Is there real manual exposure with the 156 XL? Since there's no manual, is the green switch actual an aperture control? Since there is a manual setting it might as well be the case, otherwise there's just the +1 switch, I get the function of this. - Any point in trying the SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33 40? Stepping it down from 49 to 52 could still work I guess. Would be even better to be able to ge
  3. This is an 850mAh USB Rechargeable battery for Nizo cameras which used the 7.2/9v (6xAA) battery compartment. They charge very quickly (about 2 hours) and will run the camera for about 1 hour +. If you are using it in a pistol grip Nizo, you can charge it in the camera, but if you are using it in the x056 series, you'll have to take it out. It has been tested in Braun Nizo 800, 801, 2056, 3056, 6056 and 6080 cameras' battery compartments, runs flawlessly and fits smoothly. Because these are much lighter than 6xAA batteries, they do not spring up/fall out as easily, so the bottom has a
  4. Hello guys! I've got a question for you that could sound stupid but I am thinking about it for a couple of days. I've got a nizo pro and that has been used by me only one time, just to test if it's in order. Everything seems to be ok, but I forget to try the macro setting. Now I have to shoot some macro scenes with this camera and I am looking for suggestions on how to get the frame perfectly in focus. The manual says to always use the longest focal leght to get the focus, (use the telephoto setting for focusing. To focus (...) set the focal lenght to 80mm). Now my question is, how c
  5. Greetings all! I am ecstatic about beginning shooting on Super 8 film. I have been doing 35mm still photography for a little less than a year. I love analog. Super 8 seems like it is going to be a great format for me. I am acquiring a Nizo 148 xl, which has a fixed schneider-kreuznach variogon 8-48mm;1.8 lens. Technical projects I want to work on: Getting an anamorphic rig to work and processing negatives via C-41 protocols and processing reversal film (tri-x). I have already found a great thread about processing tri-x and color negatives should be easy enough. I hav
  6. Hey all, hoping someone can give me some advice. I've just purchased my first super 8 camera...a Nizo 801 Macro. I shot my first film on it over the last few days whilst in Namibia. I've read everywhere that shooting at 24fps I should get a run time of around 2.5 minutes but as I was shooting I realised it was going down way faster. I was shooting 24fps the whole time. Ive just tested the camera without any film in and my run times going by the dial are: 18fps 1.38 mins 24fps 1.08 mins 50fps 0.34 mins Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a fault with the camera? W
  7. Alright I'm having a conundrum this morning as I pack for a weekend in the woods. I really would love to shoot one of my carts of Ektachrome (64T or 100D) I have left. Also... I want to use my newly acquired Nizo 156 Macro as it's a lovely little travel camera and I have the UWL wide angle lens for it as well. Also it has a 220º XL lens (1/28th). I have shot 200T in this camera and it came back great so the camera definitely works. Thing is... it has dumb metering. I've attached an image of what the manual says about how it reads carts. In THEORY... I feel like it should read a 100D ca
  8. Hi I have a Nizo under the eyes with an oxidized battery (batteries) it is a 3046 and I wonder if I can see its operation with only the power cable because only a diode of the filter in the eyepiece lights up . No diode on the outside and no camera action. Maybe you have to go through the batteries? Thank you
  9. I would like to protect the lens of my Nizo 561 Macro. i have been trying to find a lens cap for it, but I do not know what size I should I get. I read somewhere that it's a 52mm size. I ordered a screw on lens cap, but its way too big. Does anyone know what size I should get? I would like to get one that either screws onto the lens thread or goes over the lens. Thanks.
  10. Hello, I will be shooting on a Super8 camera, specifically the Nizo 561 Macro, with Wittner Chrome 200D Reversal Color Film. There's a few things I'd like to know so that I can get the correct exposure for every shot. 1) The Nizo camera cannot read the 200D ISO for the Wittner film...What does it default to? What should be the compensation I make using Automatic Exposure? 2) Does the Nizo recognize that it's a Daylight stock and not a Tungsten stock? If not, should I make any adjustments when I'm shooting in Daylight? What if I'm shooting in Tungsten light, should I make any adj

  12. Alrighty, looking to purchase a Super 8 camera to get the experience of producing something narrative through the film medium. Ive been shooting alot of HDSLR narratives...but i'm excited to have an opportunity to shoot and edit on film, and really feel the value of each and every frame. Saying that, I realize how niche Super 8 is. It will be expensive, so i've determined that I will try shooting and developing the film myself, editing linearly, and projecting to view. If I do decide to digitize my media, where is the cheapest to get 1 or 2 carts developed and have decent 1080p scan.
  13. I have various S8 Canon AF310 : 8.5 wide angle is too short Beaulieu 6008 Pro : Heavy for travel. Chromatic abberation in tele position Canon 1014 xl-s : too heavy and I have not very sharp images in low light Sankyo Em60XL : chromatic abberation in "tele" position but compact, 24fps !, good in low light. Tremor when I Took over this camera Sankyo ES 44XL : 18fps only ! but sharp Nizo 481 : viewfinder dark in low light, I have special cell but I dislike this system. The silver aspect is good for this camera. Canon 514 xls : I don't know I'm traveling tomorrow in Thailand and I d
