Using TV Zooms with Beaulieu Super 8 Cam?
Posted 04 April 2012 - 07:28 PM
I recently picked up a Pro8mm-modified Beaulieu 4008 in great shape, and it came with a Computar TV-Zoom 12.5-75 f/1.2. Obviously, it breathes like the devil. On the assumption that I'm OK with never zooming, I'm wondering if there are any other problems with using c-mount TV zooms on super-8?
Specifically, I've noticed that when I stop down, the image in the viewfinder doesn't begin to darken until about f/4 on the lens barrel. I'm assuming this is because it was designed for a larger sensor, probably 1/2 or 2/3." Does this mean my metering will be off?
I'd greatly appreciate any input, and recommendations for replacement lenses. I'm saving up for a lens to replace it, perhaps an Angenieux, but I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks very much!
