Assembling a 16 mm camera

NZBlogPhoto26-2007-06-14-07-20.jpeg Charles Edwards visited again today to show us how to assemble a 16 mm camera. Man, those things are heavy! The camera has a tactile quality that is completely different from handling a digital camera, even those large Panasonics. I am finding myself strangely drawn to the film process, despite my misgivings of cost and old-fashioned technique, it reminds me of working with my old Pentax 1000 shooting and printing black and white stills. The whole assembly process is so complicated, I took a load of pictures so that come the time we have to do it for real I will remember how it went.
