OK, Thanks. There is supposed to be a plastic cover over those, and that means the camera is set up for European 25fps, as opposed to American 24fps.

What gear set is in the camera? If you open the door on the camera body, there a two gears under a clear plastic cover in the center of the film chamber (behind the door) that should each be numbered. One will probably say 25 or 24 on it. Can you post what those numbers are?

 

Thanks.

The Arriflex SR2 is a much more refined camera when compared to the Arriflex 16BL. If choosing between the two, I'd go with the SR2.

 

It's very difficult to tell, from your description, what is the issue with the 16BL. Visual Products in Ohio might be able to service it for you.

In Topic: Kodak's New Super 8 Camera Update

I'm a bit confused, when I look at the Logmar footage that is posted on YouTube, it looks great. But then when I really study it, and notice the sprocket holes that are projected on the left side of the image, the sprocket hole is moving around all over the place. If that is actually a projection of the sprocket hole in the film (and not some artifact from the telecine or some other process), that image is  not registered well at all. The whole point of a registration pin (and the side rail and pressure plate) in a motion picture camera is to place the captured image in the exact same location, frame after frame, relative to the edges of the film and the sprocket hole. The fact that the sprocket holes on that test footage, seem to be moving all over the place, tells me that the registration is off.

 

You can lay one frame on top of the next, frame by frame, in a very tedious, time consuming process, after the film is scanned, and you will get what looks like perfect registration. That is what it looks like was done with that test footage. Having proper registration, proper tension of the side rail, and proper tension on the pressure plate all adds up to having each frame on the film landing in the exact same spot, in relation to the sprocket hole/film edge, thereby negating the need for tedious, time consuming frame alignment.

 

If that truly is a projected image of the sprocket holes on that piece of Super 8 footage, that film is not registered properly at all.

I must apologize, little screw up on my part. Had an issue with the web site address, it is supposed to be:

The number one after the "S" was not supposed to be in there.
