Evening All!

A few week ago i came across a Kinor 16 at a very reasonable price, and in what would appear to be full working order. I purchaced the camera and since have noticed the following:

upon releasing the trigger to stop the camera from running, somtimes it will carry on, and stumble slowly until it eventually stops.

So, a problem with the motor? dodgy russian electronics? or something ive overlooked? the manual isnt really much help as it's in russian!

I dont have any experience with kinor, so any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

I don't especially know this camera, but there is a lot of chance that it's a contact problem in the trigger itself... You could unmount it, clean it, eventually use a contact cleaner. It may also be its spring. Wipe off the contact cleaner before mounting again. This should be a good starting point as to determine wether its another problem with the motor itself for instance...

Hello Jim.

At first, this is camera can be made at 1990..1992 and, i think, storage of long time without any service.
You need this about full service of camera with adjust of optical parts.

About your problem. I cannot answer you with confidence , because, i not see camera and can not test this.
But. This show like work of system of stoping mirror disk at fixed position.
What long time a " stumble slowly " ? 2-3 sec or 10..20 sec ?
If, this 2-3 sec, this normal.

You press on stop button and electronics to switch on stop mode.
The electronics run procedure of stoping a mirror disk on fixed position. The control of motor set a low speed and read signal from optical sensor of mirror disk. ( position of mirror disk ).
If the disk set on fixed position ( mirror disk set on position for view ) the motor stoped.
If the motor can not stop a mirror disk on fixed position, the motor will turn a mirror disk up to set on fixed position.

If you have more question, you can ask me.
If you will need service of Kinor camera, can ask me too.
I can modify of old russian electronics and set ,modern module with microprocessor speed control with many crystal sych and other technical possibilities.

Hi, how much did this thing cost, and is it quieter than the ARRI 16M ?

thanks for the info, yeah im sure its in desperate need of a service, managed to pick it up for £260 while on a trip to london. The fela i bought it from was keen to sell all his old equipment fast. I couldnt resist. Not sure if its quieter than the arri, only have experience with the aaton 7, and its louder than that.
