Where to find parts for Beaulieu R16 camera

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a Beaulieu R16 camera that I sent in for repairs. The initial issue: the camera would not turn on. The repair man said that the exposure meter needs to be replaced. However, he has had trouble tracking down replacement parts. To help make this search go by faster, I offered to help find the parts. 

I was wondering if anyone know a good source for Beaulieu parts? I have no idea where to start in my search (as google hasn't been of much help), so I thought I'd post on here. I'd appreciate any help.

If you also know someone who deals with this type of camera on a regular basis and may have the part for them, please let me know how to get a hold of them...perhaps I can just send the camera to them.

Thanks very much!

I have a meter and a (new) CdS-cell, there is no further electronics in the meter circuit, so it should work. The motor is same as in a 4008, so you might be lucky to get an old one for a spare part crop. Over all, the R16 is simple, and you can get a service manual on www.filmvorführer.de.

Björn Andersson in Sweden still repairs Beaulieu movie cameras and has spare parts in stock.

Regards, Thomas

As far as mechanical and optical issues are in play I can help. Electrical and electronic parts aren’t my cup of tea. I do have soldering equipment but that’s it. Daniel Wittner still has some parts on shelves.
