Hi, Just wondering if anyone can help. We just bought a Milliken Db M4 with an underwater housing from the USA. We are based in Ireland. I was wondering if anyone knew whether the fuji 16mm X 200' SP loads (spools) fit in this camera and if not if anyone knows if there are 200ft loads on spools available to fit in the camera. We are shooting a surfing commercial off the coast of ireland. Failing that does anyone know where we may get extra spools for the camera. Would appreciate any help with this. Many thanks.

Hi,

I have never seen the Fuji spools, but I would have to presume that they are the same as the Kodaks (?) If that is the case, and hopefully someone here could confirm this, then they will fit.
I just had my first shoot with the Milliken yesterday, when I transferred film from a plastic core to a 400' daylight reel. That worked fine. I think the DBM4 is the same, but with a 200' load and so a bit smaller alltogether.
I also have the manual for the DBM-4 models (a,b and c i think) Let me know if you want it. And good luck shooting your water scenes - I am currently building an underwater housing for mine, and would be very happy to hear how yours works out.

The manual is now here: http://kameraunderva...likenManual.pdf

I just had to compress it a bit as my account was filling up. It should also be a bit easier to read as a .pdf, allthough a couple of pages are missing.
