To the 35mm experts:

I am a collector of cine cameras, mainly 16mm. My wife says I am crazy...so be it. I bought an old Eyemo. It is of the single lens variety with the governor in the head with two speeds, namely 16 and 24 fps. The odd thing is a large lever above the shutter shaft on the head. I finally freed up the shutter with a little TLC. One push of the lever gives one exposure. However, the normal release has no effect at all. I removed the camera head and there is no traditional stop pawl for the shutter. The lever is connected to a one-shot pawl and appears to be factory installed. Have any of you seen such an Eyemo? It appears to be either a manual time lapse camera or possibly a 35mm movie camera made to make a series of individual negatives. I keep thinking of a school camera for shooting class members, but this would be a nightmare to keep track of the students and the negatives.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey, Ted

Sounds like an individual modification for animation work. A picture of that lever could help decide whether it is original or added. Classes were photographed on 120 film and bigger until the seventies, at least in my country.

Please read the forum rules with regard to names.
