I am looking to purchase a 16mm camera in the next few months. Now, there is no expectation of getting work from this: it is strictly for reel development and personal usage. I would prefer a camera that is modifiable to Super 16mm and can shoot crystal sync, but cost is more of a factor than sync sound.

Here are some of the models I am deciding between:
  • Krasnogorsk K-3
  • Bell & Howell Filmo 70DR or 70HR
  • Beaulieu R16
  • Canon Scoopic 16M
  • Pathé Webo M Super 16
Also, I am most likely not going to buy a Bolex. If anyone can recommend other models, I would be eager to hear about them.

Thank you for your time and recommendations!

Hey Alex, I have a GSMO standard 16 camera package, crystal-controlled motor 12-64 fps, sinusoidal registration movement, reflex viewfinder,handgrips, 400 coaxial magazine, Angenieux 17.5-70mm T2.5 zoom. It is one of the two camera that we used to shoot a music video. It's like shooting with an ARRI SR ( just as quiet, easy to load, built like a tank ) and for 1/4 of the price.
I am looking into selling one of the package to finance the super 16 conversion of the other one.

none of those cameras come crystal controlled, some can be converted, but imo would be a poor choice.

Eclair NPR or ACL
Cinema Products CP-16

those would be cheaper 16mm sync, under $1500 hopefully, no lens.

hey Ray, that sounds like a sweet package, I'm in SF, what are you thinking about price?
I also have an Arri S as barter, but cash if you aren't interested.

Hey Kirk, I am asking $2000 for the package. It comes with an Angenieux lens that I got from Ken
(whitehouse Audio Visual) and it's in pristine condition. I am sorry I wont be able to do trade, as I am trying to raise money for a super 16 conversion.
