  1. I recently got an old CP-16A and am trying to restore it to working condition however it has one problem. When I plug it in to ac and run it nothing happens. If I leave the run button on for several minutes it will eventually start to run but very slowly. After a few more minutes it will start to run faster but never reaches sync speed (the red light is always on). If at any point I turn the run switch off the process starts back from the beginning. The power supply is good, it's giving off 20 vdc at 3 amps and I tested the camera with another power supply alligator clipped to the battery terminals and got the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to repair this myself without having to send it in. I'll link a video where you can see the speed ramping up and down on it's own. At the point I'd taken the video the camera had been powered on about 10 minutes.
  2. CP-16R 16mm Cinema Products camera. Its not the best, its not the worst. Its available in a flight case, but I can ship without to save on shipping cost. Includes Angenieux 10-150mm zoom in CP mount. Includes Arri B-mount to CP mount adapter Includes 3 mags Includes AC power cable Includes custom block battery Recent film shot on this camera / lens: https://vimeo.com/222511546 Name a fair price. I would love to get $600 shipped, open to offers.
  3. Hi, not sure what forum this belongs in. I did a very short camera test for my CP-16R. I have a CP-16A which I've shot with and never had problems, but I bought this R model to use prime lenses on it instead of the standard angenieux. I have the bow-tie or butterfly model that is infamous for light streaks in the upper right corner, so I was testing for that. It doesn't look like I got any of the streaks people associate with this model (maybe I didn't have bright enough subject matter in the upper corners?) but... there is a subtle (but constant) flicker in the center of the frame. It looks like what might happen when you take your eye away from the viewfinder, but a camera operator of mine made that mistake once last year and I since then I always make sure to keep my eye firm against the viewfinder. Wondering if it could be because I shot at 12FPS (to save film stock and development/telecine $$)? I did forget to tell the lab that I shot in the slower frame rate. Could that affect the way they telecined it and caused flicker during telecine that aren't on my negative? I remember when I tried to DIY telecine some Super 8 footage at home by removing my DSLR's lens and projecting straight onto the sensor, the image was great but I ended up with white streaks and flicker every 4-6 frames, and I guessed it was because the projector was old and I couldn't get an exact frame rate out of it (adjusting the frame rate knob would worsen or better the light streaks). Or is it more likely a light leak somewhere? If it's a light leak could I solve this problem by enclosing the camera in a dark bag during filming (which could also act as a second sound blimp anyways)? I'm going to run another camera test before I start principle fotography, but wanted some advice on what to try and change for the second test. Here is a link to the video of the test: https://vimeo.com/226261458 Any help/input is appreciated. -Omar Lopex ana-film.com
  4. 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.
  5. So I was looking at !6mm cameras and wondering, what am I getting myself into with one of these, a CP-16 camera. I know it was a professional piece of film gear for news organizations and probably need all kinds of extras, also what are the chances of some catastrophic failure on these old film cameras. I've got a canon AZ super 8 and it's time for an upgrade. I think I'd like a 16mm, preferably crystal synced. Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.
