I received my CP16RP camera package today and it looks a lot better than I was expecting. The motor runs nice and quiet, the out of sync light never comes on except when first starting up or turning off, and the lens looks far sharper than the Angie zoom lens I had before. Also, this camera was one of the last of the CP16s made as it has a half moon shutter and the spot for the video tap. I would prefer now not to sell it for scrap but to make sure it is in good shape and try to shoot my feature with it.
Anyone know how much Visual Products charges to overhaul? I sent them an email but who knows how long it will take them to respond.
