Leicina Special Video Tap

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone had experience making video taps for Super8 cameras.

I want to experiment setting up one for my Leicina Special, from my research I found that putting mini cctv type camera through the viewfinder and linking that to an external monitor was the most common way to do it. 

If that is the best way, are there more appropriate cameras to use for this application in order to have a good quality image from the viewfinder and have synced frame rate?

Several sellers offer bullet cameras to fix to eyepieces of old ciné cameras.

There is one for beaulieu zm 4008 cameras and I noticed another for zc1000

To what should the frame rate sync?
