I've tried searching a forum but had no luck in finding an answer and was hoping that someone out there might be able to help me.
I have a 16BL and need to make a video tap on it. Now, from my readings on Google I have come to realise that I have two options:
* an upgrade of the door with a camera inside it (APEC) or
* getting a CCD unit that sits on the viewfinder
This is where the question lays...
As I am after the cheaper option, (so not the upgrade of the door) do you know what kind of unit I should be looking for to put over my Swan Neck like viewfinder? I understand that majority of CCD cameras such as SONY XC-77, 73, 999, etc have a C-mount lens end and was wondering if one of them would fit onto it? If it did fit, would it be able to produce the picture from the viewfinder onto the monitor, due to lux limitation and lack of actual lens on the CCD camera itself? Or do I need to have the lens on the CCD camera and then mount it on the viewfinder?
So many questions, so little knowledge of the subject on my part. Any information will be greatly appreciated! This web site has some of those SONY XC cameras to view: http://sonyccd.com/xc_cameras.htm
PS. Aranda Group in Melbourne Australia does an APEC door conversion for $2100A plus $250A for the door itself... http://www.arandafil...m.au/index.html I was hoping at finding something for $500A...
