Canon scoopic "flickering"
Posted 23 September 2008 - 02:54 PM
I've got two canon Scoopic (MS & M) in very good shape (like new)
and I've noticed some "flickering" during videotransfers with both of them...
Is it simply because it's non-synch cameras (but i never had this problem with super-8 cameras...) or the pales of the cam that needs to be adjusted ?
Thanks for your help.

Have you ever made a print from any of your Scoopic footage? How does it look projected? That will help you shake out where the problem is.

Even Scoopics in good shape can have light leaks so perhaps some electrical tape around the seal might help. Also, you can get hot frames if you move your head away from the eye piece while shooting especially when the sun is behind you.

The flickering is very light... but effective compared to the A Camera.
The batteries are new.
May be it needs a revision but it's hard to find technicians in Paris for that kind of material.
Thanks for your help
