For those of you who have not gone to my main website www.film-tech.com and seen the collection of manuals available for download (free of charge, of course), take a quick look and see how it works. Just click on that link and then click on "manuals".

To anyone who can photocopy manuals of their equipment, please email me and I will give you an address to mail the photocopies to. I will then convert them to Adobe pdf format and make them available to all for free download. For those of you who can scan the manuals directly, let me know via email and we will make appropriate arrangements.

I will accept any projector or camera manual. [Smile]

English is preferred since this site is all English-based. If there is a machine that after a bit of time we do not have any kind of manual on, we may consider posting other language versions.

With the introduction of the 16mm forums here, be sure and send in your 16mm manuals as well. We will host them all, and ALWAYS free of charge. [Smile]

Hello Brad,

Sinds the manual page from Filmshooting.com has closed, it's much harder to find a manual for free on the internet. But before it closed I downloaded them all. I also added a lot of others that I found.
I think it is a good thing to share these with others.
Do you want my database with lots of common filmcamera and projector manuals?

Hans

Hi Hans,

I'm sure Brad will love to have those on this site. Yes its sad that they seem to have closed that area of their web site down as they had loads of interesting stuff related to film, cameras, projectors etc.

It's over to you Brad on this one. [Smile]

Kev.

hey looks like a great website but can't seem to find any manuals for a nizo s30 super 8 camera, either here or online else where... any one know of where i can find?
 
Posted by Lee Mannering (Member # 728) on November 01, 2011, 06:04 AM:
 
Try oldtimer cameras.
I think the S30 had a 3 to 1 zoom, auto/manual exposure, 18 & 24fps filming speeds and single frame. Early 70's?

Not sure if this thread it too old to post on... I'm looking for lamp replacement instructions (and bulb) for a Kodascope Eight Model 70. I didn't see it on the film-tech web site. Does anyone have a manual or instructions on how to remove the bulb?
Thanks!

Still looking for this manual or some instructions, and a bulb. Any ideas?

Here's my annual request for assistance... does anyone know of any place on earth that I could learn how to replace the bulb on this Kodascope Eight Model 70 machine? Thanks.

Nov 2016. I finally found the answer to my question, thanks to the person that posted http://camerabooks.com/ I was able to obtain a manual with instructions on how to replace the bulb. Thank you! Purchased the bulb and voila! It works!

Hi, this is not a manual, but it is a circuit diagram a friend of mine did for the Speed Control PCB for Sankyo 600 and similar models and also Titan Super Sound.

May help people out.

I have a manual I need to scan for anyone who may need it one day for a Copal Sekonic CP77 8mm Projector. I think this may be super rare because I haven't seen the manual here nor mention of this unit anywhere... Maybe it is junk and long gone....I have no idea...Just thought i'd mention we have this manual if needed at any point...

Link: Ricoh 800-Z User Manual

This is the manual for the Ricoh 800Z, a very fine Super-8mm camera. My regular flatbed scanner is giving me trouble at the moment , so I scanned these pages with my iPhone using the AdobeScan app . Quality is readable , but not great , as I did not have any way to clean-up the scans (the original manual is yellowed with age and has some water stains, it was that way when I got it.) Anyway, if you have this camera , but did not have the manual, this will be useful.

The review of the Ricoh 800Z on the Super-8 Wiki puts it well:

quote:
" An affordable alternative to a Nikon R8, and possibly better than the R8 in some ways: It is the same lens as on the R8 (built by Nikon), minus the macro setting, and with extra coatings. This should in theory make the lens perform better than the controversial R8 lens. I have been unable to test this however as my R8 needs its wiring fixed. Like the R8/R10 it also auto-meters for a wide range of film speeds with a "variable" notch; can read film stock rated 10-250 ASA Daylight and 25-400 ASA Tungsten, making it an easy camera to use with modern film stocks, however the electronic and even the manual meter will not work without the additional button cell battery [PX-14 ]. While it does not have the dissolve and double exposure options offered by the R8, where I think this really beats the R8 is with the sturdy, compact design and fold-able handle, which makes it easy to fit in a backpack and great for tripod shooting. It's smaller and lighter than the R8 and more well balanced (imo). Not sure how steady it is in comparison to the R8, but a frame-master plate can eliminate most frame jitter anyway. You can also call it a "true successor" to the Nikon 8X Super Zoom, as the body design is very similar.

In Conclusion: A simple, no-nonsense, underrated camera with a decent lens. It should be competitive with the Canon 814 E AZ and Nikon R8 but typically the Ricoh can be had for much cheaper, I only paid $15 for mine. I would say it's also superior to the R10 in the same ways it's superior to the R8, however the lens on the R10 is what generally makes it a better camera. "

Super 8 Wiki - Ricoh 800z

Photos of Ricoh 800Z

As with most cameras of this age , the most likely thing to be broken is the delicate light meter. Check carefully with the seller (on eBay , etc.) that they have inserted the necessary PX-14 replacement battery (or equivalent) into the light meter battery chamber and confirmed that the light meter is functional.

If you are thinking of purchasing one of these cameras, note well that the light meter is powered by a PX-14, is a single battery which is 2.7v , not the usual two 1.35v button batteries. Two 1.35v Wein Cell batteries stacked in the compartment might work. There is a replacement PX-14 made by EXELL but it's rated as 3.0v .

http://www.smallbattery.company.org.uk/sbc_a14px.htm

Small Battery Company also sells (or used to sell) a PX14 adapter . Currently shown as out-of-stock:
