My image A-Cam SP16 is a little bit off, ideas anyone?

Recommended Posts

I recently bought this camera and just shot a test. The images didn't really turn out the way I was hoping. This being my first test ever with 16mm I have no idea how to troubleshoot this.

Here are the specs:

Camera: Ikonoskop A-Cam SP16

Lens: Ikonoskop 9mm f/1.7

Film: Kodak Vision3 50D

(Processing was done by Focus Film in Stockholm, Sweden. They are pros and Kodak distributors so im sure they did everything right)

I shot two different frame rates, 25 and 37,5. The first clip I think looks sped up and the second two looks fine. The thing is that I am almost 100% sure I shot the first clip 25 fps and the second one 37,5. I did also not expect the camera to not work and therefore unfortunately didnt do a more accurate test than this...

So does anyone have an idea of what could've happened?

I concur with Don. I must say that experimental filmmakers that I have talked too would love to replicate this effect but cannot do so easily or at all. :)

I've got an ikonoskop Acam aswell. And you need to sync the shutter. The manual has the process and they say to re-sync it after 30 rolls.

This is another acam shooter with work I enjoy, He intentionally shot like this with the acam for a "dreamy" element.

 

Let me know if you need a manual!

The fact that this is intentionally achievable with the SP16 is kinda amazing... How many of these suckers did they make before closing up shop?

I've got 032. I don't think they made more than 500 units.
