First post on this forum. I have a Keystone K51 that seems to be in working order. It takes magazines; can I get any, can I find an old one and load it with 100' 16mm? Is it a charming paperweight?

You can find magazines on Ebay, currently with B/W.
If you open a new one, you will understand how to load it again.
It is only two perf and not too easy to load, but it's possible.
And these cameras are so little...
Poligise for my poor english.

Thank you. I live in Los Angeles and I was going to take it to a camera house here and ask them. You are the first person to tell me this is possible and your English is better than most Americans. Thank you.

At a time, there was a store called "Java photo/java cycle".
After a little research, it seems it does'nt exist anymore.
But you can find B/H 16mm magazine at this kind of link (there is currently on Ebay) :
http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item2ea8d9b104

I bought a lot of 5, never used at this time, but it seemed to be fine.
I just intend to build a black box (like a charging bag) with a infra red camera inside, juste to be comfortable when loading it.

These camera used to be fine, don't forget jean Rouch performed his movie "Jaguar" (and a lot more) just with a B/H filmo autoload, a 25mm and 1'20 magazines.
As you can see here :


Long life to hyperfocal !
