Re: How to wind the spring of a Bolex B8?

The spring seems relaxed. It only works for a second.

An overview of the operation of the mechanism:

How to wind the spring of a Bolex B8?

I have completely disassembled a Bolex B8 to clean and lubricate it. After complete reassembly the camera, I have a problem with the spring: I can not wind the spring that only a quarter turn before it is blocking, and of course, the mechanism works only on of this quarter turn spring wound (about o...

Re: 50D looks great!

I think it is a fake. It seems to me that this is a video that was embedded in a framework of Super8 to give an aspect of Super8.

However, I wish it to be truly the Super8 and that we can actually get such images with Kodak 50D.

I hope I'm wrong.

Re: 50D looks great!

I can not believe this is Super 8. https://vimeo.com/62358313 Why would it not be? Why is the left edge of the film (on the side of the hole) is clear then it is a negative film inverted in positive? It seems to me that if the image is positive, the film edges and perforation must be black. They ar...

Re: damaged LEICINA 8mm battery holder

I have chance of buying the above camera, but as stated the battery compartment is damaged (corrosion). A long shot here, but could it be fixed ? You can dissolve battery leakage on the electrical contacts of the battery container by soaking in alcohol vinegar and then sanded to remove any metal ox...

Re: Flange focal distance of 9.5 mm camera ?

Comme la distance entre le film et la bague de montage de la caméra est de 28 mm, une bague supplémentaire ne ferait qu’augmenter cette distance avec le film. Il faudrait un objectif qui rentre profondément dans la caméra comme celui photographié. As the distance between the fi...

Flange focal distance of 9.5 mm camera ?

What can be the flange focal distance of a 20 mm Cinor lens of a 9.5 mm camera (Pathé National II) ? The thread diameter of the mount is the same as the D-mount (15.88 mm), but the flange focal distance seems to be the same as the C-mount (17,526 mm). Can I use a C-mount lens (with a D-mount > C-...
