Hi every one!
I just recieved my 16mm Kodak k100 Turret. I have limited knowledge of the camera...
Couple of questions to start with...
What are the options for audio recording?
Any suggestions for lenses and angle viewfinders?
Any other knowledge that could be usefull.
Waiting for your replies...

Great camera that delivers very steady footage for a clockwork camera. I've seen footage from a K100 as steady as some wild Arri S material. I think that is due to the spring loaded film guide that is on the same side as the pulldown movement. Other cameras have the spring guide on the other side of the gate.
My estimation is the spring loaded film guide on the same side as the pulldown movement tends to lock the film onto the pulldown claw better than the other method.
You will get nice steady footage from a clean K100.
You can use almost any c-mount lens on a K100.
Switar and Angenieux being good choices.
For the money, a 25mm Cine Ektar can't be beat.
The camera does not record sound. Film production involves what they call dual system sound. You record the sound on another device such as a DAT or Nagra. You live up the sound and picture later. That is what the slate is for...
When you see the slate close, you live up the sound of it closing with that actual frame.
