Hello. This is a question for the english and irish forum partners. I have seen a super 8 camera (a Braun Nizo 6080), modified with a blue crystal quartz module attached in it´s side. It was sold by an irish man. I would like to know who made this conversion, because the american sites, offer a crystal module bigger, and plugged to the camera with a long cord. I like the small blue box fixed in a side of the camera. If anyone knows where is the place to get a modified camera like this, please let me know. arri16bleq@yahoo.es

Sounds to me like the conversion was done by Super 8 Sound (before they became Pro8mm).

Thanks Bart. I will try with them. If anyone has any experience with crystalized super 8 cameras, I am waiting to read your posts.

Hi Oscar,

I don't think they have offered this service for many years I'm afraid to say.
