I'm wishing to upgrade a Krasnogorsk-3 with a crystal sync motor. I have yet to purchase any such motor and I need help on what type (Tobin??) and how to install such a motor on the K-3. I understand the absurdity of the "sewing Machine" and sound sync, but I'm ADVENTUROUS! Eh? Any takers?

Almost anyone you ask will recommend just getting something more practical like an Arriflex 16S. The K3 wasn't really designed for sync sound or to even have a motor.

I worry, Clive Tobin crystal sync motor for K-3 not available for sell now. You need ask of Clive.
But, I think, if you will have K-3 with electrical motor, the next your question can be - " need 400 ft film magazine and super wide angle lens ".
That's why, i recommed you to check of information about russian profesisonal 16 mm cine camera Kinor-16 SX-2M.

Sorry the Tobin crystal motors are discontinued. Crystal motors in general are a near-dead product these days, especially for the K-3 as the motor and installation cost far more than the camera.

Installing the motor yourself if a good way to lop off your nose, ears, fingers and any other assorted protruberances from your body if you are not careful and lucky. The spring in the camera is a death trap if you try to remove it and make the camera lighter. I still have the instructions posted here: http://www.tobincine...com/page50.html

A couple of our dealers may still have stock maybe: Kiev USA and Du-All camera.
