CP-16R/A Lens question
Posted 09 July 2007 - 02:00 PM
1. I'm not yet sure if I'm going the S16 route. That's for another post! ; )
2. I have very little $$ invested in the camera, but I think it's in good shape.
3. I'm not a TOTAL noob, but my previous experience was with a Bolex H16 M5
4. I don't have a lot of $ to spend at present, and both of these lenses look like they're in at least decent shape and they aren't very expensive ($300-$400 range).

Compact, wide and fast.
If your near a rental house or cine lens repair shop and can have them look at it, don't forgo a clean Ang. 12-120. A clean well maintained one can be a very serviceable lens. And there are a lot of them around.

I'd suggest using the C mount (not the standard C cup) and setting it up with a 10mm Switar and side finder...
But it really depends on what you want to shoot and whether you plan on shooting color or B/W.
A zoom is a big thing to hang off the CP-16/A if you do not need one. Primes are faster and tend to be sharper.

I thing there are not meny lenses for those camera . A good choice for a starter to standard 16 mm in cp mount is the anjenieux 10 150 old lense but covers in one whole the range of lenses can be used in a shooting.
CP 16 ra is a reflex camera i was working about three years with one of those and i never seen any adaptor to c mount , i have a cp to m42 2x extender adaptor and that was very difficult to find.

As chuck suggests, I would get the Angenieux 9.5-57 as a low cost zoom for standard 16, maybe followed with the Zeiss 10-100. Consider these unusable for super 16 though.
I don't think a CP to c mount is possible as the rear threads would hit the mirror.

Two mounts - C cup, and if one removes the C cup then it has a C mount.
I'd suggest using Switar or Schneider 10mm C mount with a side-finder. Great set-up for most shooting.

I think Alain was advising me on the camera I'm actually buying from him, which is a non-reflex CP. But what I'm asking about is for a reflex CP-16R/A.
Thanks again for the great advice!

I was referring to the non-reflex camera: CP-16/A.
