According to make my Beaulieu R16 sync the sound correctly, I found the crytal control unit for R16. But I never hear about this product in my contry. Did anyone use ''S8/16mm Camera Crystal Control Unit''? I need some advise!

I've used it on my Beaulieu 408 ZMII -it worked quite well and got upto synch speed within a few seconds.

the only problem I found was that there is no of switch in the unit - so if you leave the wires plugged up on the unit (not the camera) it will flatten the batteries - so watch out!

There are other ways to sycn sound - but this is probably the best.

Thank you!
Because I want to buy it to sync the sound, my short movie need some dialogue anyway.
I try to test my R16 on 24fps without Crystal Motor, but it cause some deviation when I sync the sound in my editing software.
