First question - canon 1014 xls... They're selling on eBay for $5-900. I've been wanting one, but it's really difficult to justify spending that much. Either way, I keep reading that once the light meter goes out, the camera becomes totally useless with no possible repair. If this is correct, then no matter how good the camera is, that makes up my mind not to buy it. Is this correct? No possible repair? How likely is it for the light meter to fail? Etc.? Next question - is there a list of super 8 cameras that do lap dissolves? That seems to me to be the most complex function a movie camera could perform and the main reason I want the 1014 xls mentioned above. I know some other cameras do it (agfa moviexoom 10, yashica electro 8 something, Minolta autopak 8 d12, sankyo 620 supertronic), but I haven't had much luck finding a working example on ebay, partly because people tend to act like they don't know how to operate the camera rather than tell you it doesn't work. Lastly, for tonight... Anybody know if that Kodak super 8 camera is actually ever going to make it to store shelves?
Hi all, Long time lurker first time poster. I picked up a Canon 1014-XLS in beautiful condition off craigslist from a local here in LA. Came with the original box and all the accessories. It's lovely. Everything works as it should, and everything is clean and smooth except....the lens is stuck. The zoom motor seems to work, when I press W and T both cause the motor to move (or so I hear), but the lens barely budges. It's stuck at the far end at 65mm. Read the manual and saw nothing about locking focal length. I've reached out to two local Super 8 shops as I want to have the seals replaced anyways, but I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this and maybe it's something I can fix myself. I'm dying to play with it. Thanks! Erynn
