Canon Scoopic Ultra 16 Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hello there. I have a Canon Scoopic 16 M and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with "upgrading" these camera to an Ultra 16mm gate or crystal sync conversion. Is there anyone currently doing these mods or am I better off trying to find an already modified camera.

I own a Scoopic MS in beautiful condition, Bernie with Super 16.inc serviced the camera and converted it to Ultra 16 last year and I George Odell just converted my MS to crystal syn, I literally received the camera a few days ago and I have had a lot of work so I haven't been able to shoot anything, but he made me the favor of fixing something on the camera and converting it to CS. A man of few words, but looks like a clean job, and I hope it works as expected.

It's going to cost around $1,500 to do the two conversions, but at the end you have a nice camera, that you know it was serviced and tested and that will allow you to shoot crystal synced stuff. I have developed a few accessories that take the camera to the next level, so it can be a good investment.

Hey Ruden. Thanks for the information. I've found a contact for Bernie but I can't seem to locate George Odell if you wouldn't mind sending me a message. You'll have to let me know how your camera performs but I'm going to definitely go forward on these conversions.

Appreciate the response.

That's his website. You can see more info there. I'll try to test the camera as soon as possible, but I know they have been performing the conversion for a long time, and I see a clean job on the outside.
