Leicina Special ( battery box missing )

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recommendations for alternative ways of powering this camera ?
A friend has just inherited one without the battery box.

I assume it's nearly impossible to find a battery box nowadays. 😩

Cheers,
John S

To supply the camera with power the batteries can be placed into the Leicinia remote control unit "Leicina ST 1" (Steuergerät 1) instead of into the camera.

Disadvantage: this device is not cheap - not at all.

Advantage: the Leicina ST 1 offers various additional options such as remote control, time lapse, single-frame electronic flash synchronisation and lip-synchronized sound.

ST-1 is nice when filming from tripod and it gives some extra functions.

THe standard battery box alos doubles as a forehead support. 
When filming handheld it is convenient to have an original batteryholder, with cushion pad 🙂

Hi Volker,
Thank you very much for getting in touch and othering your spare ST-1.

Happily we found the ST-1 and it just needs fixing up.
The box has a crack in it and one of the battery terminals needs gluing down, but it does work !

It's the main battery box that would be useful to have ( as a head-rest ).

Thanks again, and best wishes,
John S 😉

Interesting to see you run a lab.  www.johnsalimphotographic.co.uk
Is this in full operation?   I.e. also the odd films like MINOX?


Too bad the brexit is going to uproot all cross border exchange.

Hi Andries,
Just a small lab providing E-6 ( cine and stills ) and B&W ( stills only ) processing.
No scanning though !

Best wishes,
John S
