In Topic: Taking of motor

29 November 2018 - 12:51 AM

I watched some of Jason's video, but the ideas are a bit fuzzy. Carl, in a few simple words, what is the problem?

 

With a little skill and understanding, removing and mounting motors is not difficult. The bigger motor, the common multispeed one, not the CP one, has a larger mounting flange that fits over the original one. 

 

The 9 pin canon connector is a bit fragile, given that non trained people remove and mount the motors. They only cost about USD25, but can take a few hours to swap out.  I think any good camera tech who likes to solder can do it.

 

The story I have, and I don't know if it is true, is that Andrew at AZSpectrum is the only one who knows how to work in depth on the motor electronics...http://www.az-spectrum.com/    He can be quite generous with advise if approached well. Finer points of mounting motors and so forth.

 

A year or so ago Visual products had plenty of the 9 pin canon connectors.

It didn't sell in four years, so perhaps a price reduction might help.

Jon, I didn't do that, didn't paint any red arrows. I'm just saying, be thoughtful about what we write.

Jon, I haven't seen it yet, but I think you are assuming a level of ineptitude on the part of the DoP and post production team that is completely unrealistic. Please take a pause and consider before posting such stuff.

Sorry, that may have been a bit too brief. Peter Jackson inherited (bought) the National Film Unit lab. NFU was a great lab, with every imaginable service.  Shortly after, most of the hardware was disposed of.  Archives NZ were going to inherit some of that and open a lab, used for archival duties, but accepting private work.

 

NFU also had a lot of production gear that got cherry picked by PJs guys, then the remainder dumped on the local internet.
