Hi all,

I got a nice spring driven Beaulieu R16. Motor is quite OK after a while and many oil. But the image is very blurry, and dark. I was thinking Gougle was full of tips about this camera, but not so many.

Does anybody know how to clean it up, or a link which explain that ?

Many thanks,

Philippe

When you say image: is that the image on the film or the image in the viewfinder?

It sounds like a good question for Björn Andersson, FILMKONSULT HB, in Sweden! The Guru for ALL things Beaulieu!

 

The long prism/optical finder for the R16 (as well as Super-8 4008 ZMII) can be dismantled and glass lenses thoroughly cleaned, likewise the GG.

 

Best,
