Hi, not sure what forum this belongs in.
I did a very short camera test for my CP-16R. I have a CP-16A which I've shot with and never had problems, but I bought this R model to use prime lenses on it instead of the standard angenieux.
I have the bow-tie or butterfly model that is infamous for light streaks in the upper right corner, so I was testing for that. It doesn't look like I got any of the streaks people associate with this model (maybe I didn't have bright enough subject matter in the upper corners?)
there is a subtle (but constant) flicker in the center of the frame. It looks like what might happen when you take your eye away from the viewfinder, but a camera operator of mine made that mistake once last year and I since then I always make sure to keep my eye firm against the viewfinder.
Wondering if it could be because I shot at 12FPS (to save film stock and development/telecine $$)? I did forget to tell the lab that I shot in the slower frame rate. Could that affect the way they telecined it and caused flicker during telecine that aren't on my negative?
I remember when I tried to DIY telecine some Super 8 footage at home by removing my DSLR's lens and projecting straight onto the sensor, the image was great but I ended up with white streaks and flicker every 4-6 frames, and I guessed it was because the projector was old and I couldn't get an exact frame rate out of it (adjusting the frame rate knob would worsen or better the light streaks).
Or is it more likely a light leak somewhere?
If it's a light leak could I solve this problem by enclosing the camera in a dark bag during filming (which could also act as a second sound blimp anyways)?
I'm going to run another camera test before I start principle fotography, but wanted some advice on what to try and change for the second test. Here is a link to the video of the test:
Any help/input is appreciated.
