I was thinking along the same lines... Since the Beaulieu Superdrive was never properly adapted to the beautiful Nizo's, I opened up a 60m cartridge to see how it worked and whether it could be refilled (Velvia, K25, negative...).
Up to now I can say that it's not a job I would like to do in a darkroom WITHOUT night vision goggles :blink: A real can of worms...

Hopefully the pictures are of some help. To open up, you have to cut with a sharp Stanley knife all along the seam and then gently prise it open.

Regards,
Alex

Thanks Alex,

the pictures are just what I needed. Have you refilled one yet? What pressure-plate is on yours, it's white? The plate on mine is black plastic like the small version.

How are the big rolls linked to the mechanism?

I was also thinking to pull all the old film out till you have some handles on both sides then stick the the new film to it refill while rewinding... might scratch a little but could work...

any idea how precise the loop has to be?


cheers, Bernhard
