spring winding and material

Quite nice, but the machinery is going to need a tripod for sure. This take-up spring is going to need winding during shooting? The cameraoparator is going to look like early 1900-s

What material is going to be available? These Pro8 materials are not really the most affordable.

many nizo

Hello,

Many Nizo's :D can do B or automatic-B exposure. I have no list but use a 560 myself.

With automatic B the interval is determined by light-level.

With fixed B the shutter is only closed when the built-in timer activates transport.

All very neat :!:

within a year, leakage

From personal experience I can tell that A-rabbit-brand batteries can leak too. And within a year after purchase! I was lucky to escape with some wet contacts which where easily cleaned. Now, I take out the clip whenever there is no film in the camera. Or when I put the camera away knowing that I wi...

Problem is, the zinc airs are short lived. But all you do is take them out of your camera when you're not using it, put a little scotch tape over the tiny air holes and save them until next time you're going to film. It's easy! And these things are cheap. And they work great. According to a photogr...

buyer protection ebay

Apply for the buyer protection which eBay has available. It takes time and some e-mail activity. Follow the layed out procedure and at the end if everything is according to the rules you get a (maxed) amount of money from their insurance institute. I've done it once and it worked. Got the camera rep...

4008 on ebay

Well, The second item mentioned has no accesoiries at all. Battery condition unknown (but it is a tall one, attractive for recelling can become a 600mAh). Cameracondition uncertain. Funny, strange aluminium grip extender. Euro 100 for such a thing is a fair price. These things with multiple insecuri...

I know of one professional lab here in the Netherlands which uses the Lomo spiral tanks for developing 8 and 16mm film for customers. I think Baumgarten does the same... How can they make a fair reward from that? I have used the Lomo spiral tank a number of times and find it reliable. But you still ...

Here is all info needed for the Lomo tank: http://www.geocities.com/russiancamera/tank/tank.htm :arrow: For employing it for 8mm you must have the filler rings. You cannot change things by just flipping the reels or something. You can order one from Olex but consider all costs of postage and banktra...

You missed the point. The images are already exceptionally good so you do not need this thing. You are not going to gain from it. :!: Also, it is not a requirement for the camera (from the 70-ties) to be suitable for usage with a strange iron clump jammed into the cartridge where it does not belong...

R10 claw construction according to the manual

This is a scan from the R8/R10 repair manual. It shows a 'regular' claw for up and down movement. And a set of two arresting pins somewhat below the exposureframe who go in and out off the perforation holes to force alignment of the frame on the film and make sure that the film stays completely sti...

On other camera's there is a feeler which switches the audio part on when a soundcartridge is loaded into the camera. The feeler should be in the lower part where the no-sound does not press it and where the sound can... For testing you can press the feeler switch with your finger. You could test th...
