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?
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.
