Our Canadian friend and fellow Konvateer, Pierre Samuel Rioux, shares pictures of his Konvas 2M with barney:
Pierre Sam says, on the motor, to notice that the barney does not cover the connection for the cable. It also does not cover up the speed selector on the top [nor the on/off button].
Pierre Sam explains that it's better if you remove the strap on the camera to use the Barney. Also, you can not use the 2M side handle.
Pierre Sam also explains that, when used with the 200 ft magazine, the barney weighs 7 pounds. When used with the 400 ft magazine, the total extra weight that the barney adds to the camera is 8.5 pounds.
This particular 2M was originally Frank Wylie's Konvas (who started the Konvas discussion list).
It's not a Konvas nor a barney, but the above is a picture of Pierre Sam (on the right) talking about his 16mm Auricon.
