  1. I just learned I have access to an Aaton LTR but that the batteries went missing. I've searched for batteries online to no avail and was wondering if anyone here knew anyone selling them? Let me know guys, Thank you!
  2. I want to buy a 12v new battery suitable for a Bolex EBM. There's nothing on ebay and in Super8filmaholic website is out of stock. I have one old Bolex battery but I am looking for an alternative with more capacity. Best, Marcos
  3. 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
  4. Hi! I have been looking for a new 16mm battery for my Eclair ACL2, but no luck. My old battery is in the picture attached. I have tried this type DC 12V 4800mAh Super Rechargeable Portable Lithium-ion: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics , doesn't work at all. And this one 12V DC Rechargeable Li-ion Battery Pack for CCTV Camera: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics which works only up to 25fps, the camera stops working at 50 and 75fps. It seems to be a lack of strength. Any tips to help me finding an appropriate battery? I still have a few BW cans in my fridge! Thanks for your time! Luca
  5. I've got +/- 40 cheaper gold mount batteries, Ikan IB-L130A, 14.8V 9.0 Ah 130Wh in my inventory. They're in good shape as far as the battery cells, but the outside cases are getting beat up and cracked. Ikan doesn't have spare/loose cases for this model anymore. Does anyone know of a generic case that I could re-home the cells into? Or maybe a 3d printed design that would work? I know it's a long shot. Just trying to keep the inventory functioning as long as possible.
  6. Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had a ARRI 416 On Board Battery Adapter for sale. Such as the one for sale by Oppenheimer. Thank you very much Matt
  7. I'm looking for a power source for my Eclair NPR 16mm camera and I think I'm starting to get a rough idea of what to look for (still open to suggestions tho) but one key question: does a higher frame rate require more volts? The manuals I've seen online suggest a 12 volt, 3-5 Amh battery to power the Perfectone motor but I've seen discussions about the motor stopping as soon as the FPS rate goes up. Someone who appeared more knowledgeable than myself said the higher frame rate would require higher voltage. Possibly up to 15 volts. However I've also read discussions where people warn against using a battery or power source that is rated higher than the suggested voltage for the motor. Any thoughts or experiences with this subject? Thanks
  8. Has anyone tried making their own external power source for a Bauer 715? I recently rolled the dice on a relatively inexpensive Bauer 715 and the good news is that it does run. ...The bad news is that it only runs if I hold the battery compartment in the perfect position. One problem is that the white plastic "battery housing" or battery holder is missing so the batteries move around quite easily. I may have at least temporarily conquered that with some tape. Anyone familiar with Bauer 715 probably already knows that the lid for the battery compartment is broken and won't stay attached without some extra help. I could try ordering parts but I wonder if anyone has tried getting around these problems by simply creating an external battery belt or battery pack. This idea was actually suggested by an employee at the local hobby shop and it sounds easier to me than fussing around with spare parts. Looking inside the battery compartment it appears the first step to getting deeper inside the camera are 3 yellow/gold flat-head screws. I can get at them but they don't seem easily moved. Might they be glued in? The camera runs off of 6 AA batteries, so I think that means 9 volts are required. So maybe get a battery holder for 9 volts (holds 6AAs) and wire that into the camera once the contacts 9for the AA batteries are removed ??
  9. Does anyone know what the external battery connector on the grey canon Scoopic is called or where I could find one? It has 4 pins but it's clearly not XLR
  10. I've been shooting on a K3 for the past year or so, and decided to pick up a Scoopic (Gray model). The camera definitely needs a CLA, but overall seems in decent condition. The main problem is power, which I understand is common with scoopics. It came with a battery and charger. The battery is charging now, though I'm assuming it will need to be recelled. I was curious as to what other options there are in terms of powering the camera. Specifically, I was wondering how simple it would be to make an external power source to connect to the four pin connector on the camera. I'm no electrical engineer, so I assume it would be more complicated than finding a 12V battery and soldering it to the proper cable. I've also seen some tutorials on making internal battery packs using 10 1.2V AA batteries, though they all seemed a little insecure to me. What goes into making an external power source for the camera, and what should I look for?

  12. 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 Wittner website I saw the large Eneloop on-board battery. It is not cheap. Has anyone used this? Am I better getting a Dummy Socket, cable and external battery? Any particular system you would recommend? - The mirror retraction knob will not turn. While I do not plan on retracting the mirror I wonder why it would be so stiff. - The Three-position Power Supply switch is stuck in the "in" position. I can pull it out, with a little effort and using my fingernails. I can't seem to make it lock in the "lock" position. My guess is something is amiss. Is there supposed to be a spring-action or something like that? - I put the selector in the "Manual" position and try to manually zoom but it feels like the gears are still engaged. Is this because there is no power to the camera? - The camera did come with the filter key. Is there a way to tell, without burning a cartridge of film, if the Wratten filter is still good? - There is no foam or rubber gasket on the film door; is that the design? Thank you in advance for any advice. I live in Tokyo so having the camera checked out in Europe is not easy. I need to check with Retro 8 to see if they work on Beaulieu. I hope I can turn this into a viable camera; it is the camera I've dreamed of owning since I was 10 years old. Bruce
  13. 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
  14. I just got a Photo Sonics 1VN (action master 200) in unknown condition and no batteries. What kind of battery (voltage/amps) the original uses inside the "shoulder mount" adapter which is supposedly meant for sports high speed filming? the battery case itself is there but the cells are removed. I am planning to fit NiMh cells there once I know the voltage and power needed. and, is there some of the original lubricants available anymore or some alternatives for the movement? I won't use it regularly even if I get it working but may have to use it in cold temperatures (about -20°C or so) . maybe a 200ft roll once a month or so...
  15. Hey, I just bought an SRIII but it only came with one battery. Anyone know where I could pick up a couple more? Or, does anyone know someone who could make a small onboard that could plug into the 4-pin xlr? Looking for new, used, aftermarket, 3rd party, whatever. Cheers!

  17. Hey everyone, I bought a Minolta Autopak 8 K11 super 8 camera a few months ago in Mexico City. When I first shot a roll of color, everything was fine. But after a while the camera would randomly not shoot, the mechanical zoom wouldn't work, and the battery checker on the back couldn't recognize the batteries. But then the next time I picked it up, it would work fine! I assume the connection from the batteries in the handle to the body of the camera is faulty somehow, but I wanted to ask here if anyone has had an issue like this with a Minolta. I hope there is just dust between the connecting points but I'm also not sure what the best solution is for cleaning connections like that. Anyone have any advice? Thanks a bunch. Allegra
  18. NAB 2015, Booth #C6025 Advanced Battery Safety Technology and Asset Tracking for the Digital Age Added to Latest Releases of Revolutionary Series SHELTON, CT (March 25, 2015) - Anton/Bauer®, a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of battery, charging and monitoring technologies for the broadcast, film and video industries, will be showcasing important new additions to its Digital Battery and Performance Charger Series at NAB 2015. Anton/Bauer's ground-breaking Digital Battery Series, first introduced at NAB 2014, redefines the power standard for a new generation of cameras and auxiliary equipment, while the Performance Charger Series exceeds the high-efficiency standards required by today's rigorous shooting schedules. Anton/Bauer's latest innovations in battery safety technology and cloud-based asset tracking will be demonstrated at their exhibit (booth #C6025) at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas, which runs April 13-16. With production safety at the forefront of the industry's agenda, Anton/Bauer has updated its Digital Battery Series with Fuse Link technology, a new connection technology that vendors developed as a result of Tesla Motors' research efforts. Fuse Link technology provides an added protection circuit within each cell pack, prohibiting damage to adjoining cells if a single cell is affected for any reason by severe impact, puncture or thermal runaway. "The safety of our users is the top priority at Anton/Bauer," says Neal Laneville, Product Manager of Mobile Power for the company. "Our Lithium-Ion Digital Batteries are the safest on the market, and they've undergone a rigorous process of research, design and testing to achieve it. We felt the developments in Fuse Link technology were significant enough to include in our design. If there's any incident with one of the cells, Fuse Link reacts like a giant fuse, isolating that single cell from the rest of the pack. We constantly strive to incorporate the latest technology into our batteries so our customers can handle them without any concern for their own safety or that of their team." Anton/Bauer will also be previewing their new Asset Management System (AMS) at NAB 2015. Heralding a new era of digital asset tracking, the cloud-based AMS is a game changer in the area of fleet management. "The cumbersome tasks associated with battery fleet management will soon be a thing of the past," notes Laneville. "Rental houses, broadcast studios, and news affiliates will be able to track the status of their batteries right from their computers." With Anton/Bauer's AMS, an asset's essential information, including remaining run-time, temperature, voltage, and present capacity, will be just a click away. When an Anton/Bauer battery is placed on a Wi-Fi enabled Performance Charger, the AMS will automatically upload its information to a secure, cloud-based server. All pertinent data required for tracking and performance analysis will be available with a simple user log-in and password. "We're looking forward to demonstrating the important features we've added to our Digital Battery and Performance Charger series at NAB," concludes Laneville. "Safety is obviously of the utmost concern, and increased efficiencies are vital to our customers. There are huge developments continuing in Lithium-Ion technology, and we're looking forward to delivering all of those benefits to our customers." The Digital Battery Series includes three battery sizes (90 Wh, 150 Wh, and 190 Wh), all with Anton/Bauer's high-quality cells that deliver a long performance life. The Digital Battery and Performance Charger Series are now available in both Anton/Bauer's signature Gold Mount® and in V-Mount. Anton/Bauer's Asset Management System will be available to the marketplace as a tier-based subscription in the third quarter of 2015. For more information, visit www.antonbauer.com or call (800) 422-3473.
  19. Hey guys, I'm selling a BLOCK BATTERY POWER SUPPLY from Victory Battery Burbank of California. Some other information you might want to know: OUTPUT 12 Volts DC and 24 Volts DC Output 4-Pin and 3-Pin XLR Output $425 Let me know if you're interested.
  20. Hi, I'm looking for a Cinema Products NCC6 battery charger for my CP GSMO 16mm camera. I know Whitehouse sells them but I'm wondering if anyone may have one available to sell. Thanks.
  21. 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 few fellow Film-makers who adore the 4008 but I literally can't get to grips with it! Should I possibly add a larger grip underneath? Attempt to clutch hold of the camera differently? Or simply consign it to a tripod? Or am I doing something wrong? This beautiful piece of kit doesn't feel as instinctive to use in my own (not that large) hands. :unsure:
  22. I made an affordable 8v battery for my Konvas 1-KCP using NiMh cells picked off of eBay : https://aapolettinen.blogspot.com/b/post-preview?token=rzYJvEcBAAA.55i9J13eyhYWCBKkzH1YZg.n-gZF7DeDmyp0JYjlY338g&postId=389739504158150991&type=POST#!/2014/08/making-simple-nimh-battery-for-konvas.html The same procedure can be used for making a oddball voltage battery for any type of camera or equipment :lol:

  25. 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.
