I had 7 Kinors 16mm. One was in bits due to being dropped off a cliff and 5 were standard 16 and my own one was a super 16mm. The standard 16's were hired out to various colleges for their media study students to "play" with but my S16 was never loaned out and was in nice condition and worked perfectly. The others were covered in gaffer tape and were a sorry sight.
They were given away as they looked horrible but the lenses and mags were just useable. Nobody wanted to pay for them. I got $500.00 for my own camera. I paid that for the conversion only. Nobody wanted a Kinor, "Russian are you kidding me!" they preferred the Bolex S16 to mine.
NPR's are great camera's, Steve has a few. The last one I saw for sale went for $2,500 including Angie zoom but was a S16 conversion. They are still in demand in Europe by the semi Pro mob.
But will they pay for shipping? Also collectors are buying them up working or not.
Hope your business is doing well. Any business takes atleast 5 years to get established so stay true to your beliefs and hold the helm steady while you go through the headwinds but fair weather is always around the corner.
Your son should be an expert by now in loading NPR mags!

>> Sorry to admit that all my Kinors have now been sold off. Well given away for peanuts to budding Speilbergs!!! It's a shame as I loved them so only have Russian still cameras now. Rita
> I didn't know you sold off all your Kinors! As I recall, you had quite a few of them too. I still have some 16mm stuff laying around, as well as Super8 stuff here (and a 35mm camera or two), but since we opened the brewery, I haven't even had time to shoot stills.

> Selling my 16mm Eclair NPR. Haven't ran film thru it in years, so I do not know what condition it is in. Last time I hooked the battery up and pulled the trigger on it, it ran. Not sure of the sync (I have no way of testing sync), but it was a swiss made Perfectone Compact Crystal Sync Motor. An Angenieux 12-120mm lens, a Canon C-mount 15-150mm 1:2,8 zoom, and 3x film backs. I honestly do not know the condition of this camera anymore, so selling as is. Make me an offer, but please hit me up off-list!
> I also have quite a few tripods of differing sizes (some are extremely heavy duty), like Hercules, Samson, Gitza, etc. I'd be very willing to let go too...
