I Have a Russian High Speed Camera I have Never been able to Actually use i bought it Online and While the Camera Apears to be in GOOD condition I suspect the Power
Supply Control box May not be working
It is of course possible the motor doesnt work But I dont think this is the Problem
Regardless I would Like very much to get this Camera Going Shortly as I shoot mostly Snowmobile & Ski Films and We have Record Snowfalls here Now
anyone familiar with these Cameras?

At first, you need test of mechanism of camera by handle rotation.
The next step, test of motor of camera without power unit.
This is possible, because, camera have DC motor.
If all Ok and camera not wish work with power unit, need repair of power unit.
You can repair of original power unit or order upgrade of electronics on crystal synch multi speed version.
I hope, you know, SKL camera must be modify for BH film perforation, because, original version have KS perforation transport mechanism.
SKL camera use 27 v high power battery. The operating current - up o 20 A.

If you have questions, ask me on e-mail olex@a-teleport.com

I know not, what version of camera you have.
If you have original russian version of SKL camera, this camera have transport mechanism for KS perforated film, because, all russian 35 mm films had KS perforation ( similar of photo film and Kodak print film perforation ).
If you have idea of use Kodak negative film with BH perforation with original SKL, this is not possible, because, you will have a perforating machine instead of cine camera and mechnaism will work very short time up to breakage.

The modern upgraded SKL cameras have transport mechanism with modified size and profile of transport and registration pins for BH film( Kodak negative cine film).

That's why, you need check of version of transport mechanism of your camera.
This is very easy, you need set of Kodak negative film and check, the transport and registration pins can
go into hole of perforation of film ro not.
