Hi Everybody!!

I've recently won a beaulieu 5008s super 8 on ebay, but unfortunatley the battery that comes with the camera is worn beyond all use.

I have been hunting online and found that at the super 8 camera shop they sell dummy blocks for the beaulieu 4008 camera range, but I dont know if these are compatible with my camera.

Hope someone can help!!!

The dummy contact made for the 4008 series cameras won't work with the 5008 series cameras. Wittner Kinotechnik offers a dummy contact made for your camera. See http://www.beaulieu.de/start.html.

If you have the battery container and it is in good shape, it can be recelled. A number of places offer this service.

Cheers,

Yes, re-cell the battery! It will be better than new if done correctly.
