Some years ago I bought a Beaulieu R16. Comparing it to the manual I have been able to find online there seem to be some differences: First of all, the lighting meter scale is in DIN. More importantly, there is a compartment for a battery for the Gossen meter.
This has led me to believe that there might be differences also in the wiring of the 3-pin din power connector. If I use the battery and cable I have built for my Beaulieu 4008 ZM, one of the 3.6 V battery blocks starts to heat up. Maybe in my model the pin for 3.6 V is wired in such a manner that a short circuit appears? Ihave now once rewired the power cable and the battery, and the problem doesn't occur with my super-8 camera... Perhaps I need a separate cable for R16, without the 3.6V pin?
Beaulieu R16 -- different models?
