As well as using modern professional sync Super 16 camera I have been using a lot of Vintage cameras. Here's some tests I did with a Keystone camera, the results are pretty impressive;

16mm workshops

09 November 2017 - 04:45 AM

My workshops are always about film in the present tense. I have just finished teaching a 16mm program; it was very successful, I find that more young people than ever before want to use 16mm. The question that I am being asked [by students] more than ever is ‘what camera they should get’ and as ever I find myself a bit stumped as to which one/s I should recommend.

In the photo the students are using a Super 16 Éclair ACL 2 with a Canon DSLR battery attached to the magazine.

16mm cameras voltage

18 August 2017 - 10:06 AM

With Super 8 cameras some simpler camera seem to run with two batteries or 3 volts, most silent cameras with a zoom seem to run on 6 volts and most sound models seem run on 9 volts.

 

With 16mm cameras it seems that 12 volt is standard on most [not all] 16mm cameras, but why is 12 volt power popular on most 16mm cameras? Is there a technical reason why lower voltages like 6 volts or 10 volts weren't used?

 

Thanks

Micro Four Thirds

04 August 2017 - 03:05 AM

Can I use a Micro Four Thirds lens on a C mount camera? Are there adapters out there? There seem to be quite a few adapters allowing users to use C mount lenses on their MFT's cameras but not the other way around. How much bigger is the APS-C sensor than Super 16? What focal lenght will a 12mm MFT lens give me on Super 16?

 

Thanks

Pathe Webo BTL 16mm camera,

25 July 2017 - 06:08 AM

I am getting a Pathe Webo BTL 16mm camera, I have no idea yet if it works, or if the exposure system works and whether the pellicle is broken. Does anybody know how to take this camera apart?

 

Thanks
