After few months of searches i just got my first 16mm camera - canon scoopic 16M
camera looks absolutely new, looks like nobody ever put film in it!
I made a battery from 8xAA holder - and camera turned on and runs!
I have few questions tho.
1. First of all - foam gaskets turns to ashes - so side cover is very loose. Should i be afraid of light leaks? Seems like it have pretty big borders anyway. And to be honest i have no idea how to replace it.
2. Second - which scares me a lot. When shutter button half pressed - exposure meter is starting working - and it makes really loud sound! Buzz or hum, i dont know how to explain. But it is REALLY loud sound. And i even feel some vibration with my hands.
3. i opened pressure plate and it looks like i see some dust on gate. What is a best way to clean gate and pressure plate?
4. I do understand that old cameras sometimes needs CLA. But i dont have another 350$ for it. How can i figure out do i need CLA or not?
Thank you guys!
