My Elmo 1012 is in great shape and functions perfectly in hand-held filming. The problem is that when I fold the handle up to TriPod mount, I get no power to the camera. I had not attempted to run the camera on a TriPod until recently, so I was unaware of this issue. I can get a good "battery check" with the handle up but there is no power to the rest of the camera (light meter, trigger, etc.). I have tried it with just the onboard batteries and the external pack as well (both with and without onboard batts loaded)
I inspected what I could without opening the camera body and the wires leading inside the body seem very solid.
Is there a setting on the camera that I'm missing for mount function?
If the camera does need repair, IJM seems to be the place for Elmo work. Would anyone recommed me give them a call?
I love the camera and would like to be able to use it for my next short, but I may have to resort to my Sankyo ES66 or Bolex 525 for the work
Any input would be apreciated!
